...forgot to mention  
For those who like updates, Martin got me a 2 gig mp3 player this weekend and I bought myself a new camera. All I need now is the laptop and I've got one picked out it's just the financing we're playing with now.

I don't follow

your 3-d critter's pic gallery has one pic that refuses to come up... thumbnail's like a group shot with a lot of people/things in it I can't make out small-size, and it just Won't upsize for me...

Oh, I had the same problem. I was just trying out the photo feature while laying on a friends piano. Nothing big. As it is, I was wearing my old hair.

Glad to hear things are going well on the tech-front. I signed up for the 3-d chat, but it crashed on me.

Nikki had the same problem. I got points for your signing up and got a nice top with it. I may not have been able to use it either if I wasn't on Sarah's Super-Whammadyne Gaming Laptop. I'll see in a few weeks I guess if I can keep using it.

So what are the details on the tech? What kind of camera, what kind of mp3 player? What're the deets of the laptop you're looking at? And yay to Martin for being so nice.

The camera is an olympus, pretty much the same stats as the kodak, but with image stabilization, no sound on the movies (=P) and it seems to take better quality pictures. Came with a free tripod.

The mp3 player is going back, sadly, it isn't working. It was on sale at Frys and those things tend to be less than perfect.

The laptop will be a Dell only because I refuse to have the DRM choked Vista on my computers. There are a couple of refurbs for under 600 there.

At least it's not Second Life. ;)
Frittersfritters on July 9th, 2007 04:43 am (UTC)
What are the differences?

I used to be on There, too, actually.

Which Dell laptop are you getting? My dad called me yesterday asking me if I could stop by this week and help him pick out one, and I haven't even looked at them since I bought mine back in 03.

Get the Latitude D420. Light, solid, reliable. You can even order it "downgraded" to Windows XP if you don't want to have to learn Vista from scratch.

On the website I'm only seeing the Inspirons and the XPS. Do they still make it? Is it a business model?
Frittersfritters on July 9th, 2007 11:36 pm (UTC)
One of the cheapies and probably from the refurb section. Its like an inspiron 1501 or something...
jason_brez on July 9th, 2007 03:36 pm (UTC)
do you still want my 20g player?
Frittersfritters on July 9th, 2007 11:36 pm (UTC)
IF you're getting another one anyways. As it is, the 2 gig arrived broken so it's being returned to Frys.

Ooh, yay on the new toys n' stuff! Of course you have to wait until AFTER your trip to PR to get a new camera. :-p

What's the laptop you've picked out?
Frittersfritters on July 10th, 2007 05:22 am (UTC)
Well the old camera broke on day 1 of the vacation 0_o

And I'm gonna get some sort of low end Dell laptop simply because I want a laptop that doesn't have Vista and they're the only place I can get that.

Didja try Lenovo?
Frittersfritters on July 10th, 2007 06:05 am (UTC)
What's Lenovo?
sad picture of girl getting bittererqphelia on July 10th, 2007 02:46 pm (UTC)
It's a brand of computer, very sturdy. They're ugly as all heck, but they're durable, and they do the job. I suggest you at least check it out at lenovo.com.
Fritters: TT BB ergh? by ellonwyefritters on July 10th, 2007 10:40 pm (UTC)
Ergh. They're several hundred dollars more expensive than a Dell.
