How do you carry the notebook to Gaybucks when going there to pose on the bike? Backpack or messenger bag? :smilebig:luvtolean said:Just got a new Dell Centrino notebook. Anyone here have this set-up? What do you think? (Guess I should'a asked before I ordered it)
How do the wireless hotspots work at places like Starbucks? Do you pay, or does the link just work?
We're a "Dell company" so it's a moot point, but, the 2 Dell dual processor number crunchers I have have been wonderful machines. My last notebook is a Dell Latitude I've had since 2000. Only bugs were one floppy drive dying, and the battery packs dying after about 2 years. Otherwise, that computer has never once left me stranded on the side of the racetrack or at a customer. And it's had the piss kicked out of it traveling. My home computer is a Pentium II 400mHz Dell my Dad got me as a graduation gift (my first computer). It still works well, just kinda slow.SomeStrangeGuy said:(I've had good experience w/Dell desktops - very manageable though the firmware changes are annoying, but their laptops are another story altogether. My inspiron 8100 worked better when it was broken before I sent it back to them then it did when I got it back too...ugh)
I typically don't get involved with PC's unless they are a problem, and since all we VAR for is Dell, I guess that could get me biased some. But like I said their desktops and servers have been pretty damned stable, thus we only have problems with the laptops, as of which about 70% are really layer 8 issues.luvtolean said:We're a "Dell company" so it's a moot point...
So for me, Dell has an outstanding record.
Mine is set up the same way, and the coolest thing is that I can log onto my neighbor's home network and gain access to his security camera system. Free, live porn streaming in from their bedroom several nights a week...and she is HOT!!!luvtolean said:
Had a pretty funny experience last night at home with it. Our IT guys set it up to automatically look for a wireless network if a CAT 5 is not plugged in. So I fire it up at home last night and it finds 4 different wireless networks in my neighborhood. Hmmmm....so I dig a bit and find 2 are unprotected. I find the firewall button for my machine and turn it on and then try to connect to the unprotected networks. It hooked up a couple times, and I even got it to load the org once, but I couldn't post.
Me too...I live next to a women's prison....so I tap into their wireless for 24/7 caged heat....Pete said:Mine is set up the same way, and the coolest thing is that I can log onto my neighbor's home network and gain access to his security camera system.
