I finally went out and got a wireless router, and I'm sitting here typing this from my laptop. Exciting for me, but probably old news for most of my fellow bloggers.
Still, this is sweet. The computer I'd been using was a 7~8 year old bottom of the line Dell Dimension 2400 series with usually no more than 1-2 gigs of free hard drive space. Now I'm on my HP ZE5470 laptop from college which is pretty decent except for constant overheating issues. Despite being 5 years old It's blazing fast compared to the Dell.
