19:00:35 PeggyG -> how do you get such clear
audio for this show? need tutorials for some of the other ETT shows.

19:04:08 matt montagne -> we evaluated the

19:04:16 minhaaj -> Asus EEEPC is close.
19:04:37 JohnS -> I’ve had a lot of trouble
with the Atheros wifi card in the eeepc though
19:04:38 matt montagne -> Asus is nice too
minjhaaj, but has a really unfortunate right shift key
19:04:48 minhaaj -> how do you install
windows if you mess up yours without a super drive again?
19:04:50 JohnS -> And performance in Windows
is really bad in the eee
19:05:00 matt montagne -> but, you can hook
that thing up to an external display and you r good to go
19:05:10 minhaaj -> wouldn’t know matt. lets
take your word on it but it got real bad reviews
19:05:29 matt montagne -> I hooked up our HP
Mini 10″ to a 24″ display and it works great
19:06:04 Cathy E -> I love my netbook
19:06:05 matt montagne -> @minhaaj…I can
get used to any keyboard, but the asus has this really tiny right shift
key in a weird location
19:06:11 JL ->
19:06:16 minhaaj -> gig of a ram and 1.6 mhz
does most things if you don’t start gaming on it

there. OO.org for sure
19:12:03 minhaaj -> you could use ‘damn
small linux’ and ‘puppy linux’
19:12:09 minhaaj -> you could run it off of
19:13:09 minhaaj -> and then make a ghost to
make other people’s life easier who are using your model
19:13:10 minhaaj -> 🙂
19:13:29 matt montagne -> netbooks are
looking more like laptops and laptops are looking more like netbooks
19:13:33 gary -> So is Dave still going to
buy a Apple netbook if it comes out?
19:14:16 minhaaj -> only thing keeping me
away from a netbook is the perceived performance concerns. dvd drive is
one intimidating factor

blogspot on my server?
19:19:12 minhaaj -> nope because there is no
paid version and you don’t need it because you can change themes
without having to put it on server
19:19:26 minhaaj -> can’t do it with free wp
19:19:45 lldenmark -> Has anyone used
twitter to take class attendance?

19:32:52 Riptide -> and you trust Google?
19:33:04 minhaaj -> you read my mind there
19:33:09 matt montagne -> ahh, the
importance of information triangulation
19:33:14 JohnS -> no, but Google gives me
links to other resources, and I can tell where that data is coming from.
19:33:14 minhaaj -> its just out there.
Their way or the highway 🙂

was put against Google too but wolfram is different.
19:36:29 gary -> Yes the comments!
19:36:30 dave -> @riptide but people wont
see it that way
19:36:31 matt montagne -> at some point,
