Listen, whatcha think . . .

S is our computer guru. In fact, he chose the components and built the PC being used to write this. When they come up with laptops that you can build and customize yourself, we will turn to him again and wait in line for his help.

Wouldn't that be a good idea?
I mean interchangeable components, from no matter what brand, for a laptop. I know some PCs are proprietary but all laptops seem to be.

Gateway, Dell, Toshiba, HP, etc., are you listening? I know, I know, the proprietary laptops are sold with differing levels of peripherals, but they are pretty much a menu of expensive choices. We need would like to be able to cobble together our own laptops (say, using choices from newegg.com) without breaking the bank . . .

S, being our grandson, is a sort of grow your own guru. He do good work, though.

Laptop? What's all this over a laptop? Is there not enouph space at the computer for everyone, or is there something I don't know.

Big Ed,

Just because you and I are polite to one another over sharing computer time does not mean that I did not enjoy using the laptop at the condo. Other than that, there is nothing to know.

Except, you do have a large, slow paperweight on your desk . . .

Bump, my turn? oh oh. r u ok?

I could never get as much work done on the slow paper weight as I do with the fast dsl one.
