Not-A-Meme

Not-A-Meme

Now that a significant chunk of my friends have an eeepc, I am starting to feel like we’re in a gang. The small laptops are coming! They are taking over. I want a picture of everyone from Altered Fluid with one. I want us all lined up, eying Devin (who has a small laptop, but not a tiny one) with suspicion.

Anyway, this is not a meme, but it is some fun-ness. The challenge is to post pictures of your eeepc in all its glorious eeeness. Top points to shots of the eee in the wild, or somewhere fun, or doing something hilarious. Here’s mine:

My eeepc, her name is \
My eee again, but half closed

I christened her “The Maidenhead” and Mary Robinette Kowal is going to make me a custom skin with art based on Cat Valente’s book as the base. Then she will be red and piratey.

What is my eeepc doing that is interesting? It’s helping me test out the “Set White Balance” function on my camera, which I just discovered today. Hooray. (Thanks for the tip, Mary.)

I showed you mine, now show me yours! I should tag people, just to make it more meme-y. I tag coffeeandink, Eugene, and Kris.

(p.s. also, we should make our eeepictures into icons, like I did!)

    I’ve been watching eeepc prices go up and down for the past few weeks on a local store’s website. Right now, I could get a 4GB model (with webcam) for ~$360. It’s pink… I’m guessing that they overbought for their mom’s day special.

    Which model do you have, if you don’t mind my asking, and are you running the original Linux OS or have you modified it?

    I gave a light blue one to my mum for Xmas. I myself have an XO, but the XO really can’t double as a work machine for an adult. Well, maybe it could if I stripped it down to its Linuxy core and abandoned the Sugar OS completely, but I’m not willing to do that. I’m thinking about giving mine to my nephew, to match the one I got for his sister, my niece, and then getting an EEEPC for my mum.

    I’ve been wanting one since before they came out! I would like to buy one in time for Wiscon, but I don’t think I could get a good one for a good deal without buying online.

    I saw Best Buy had the 4 gigs with Windows XP, but the reviews made it sound like once XP was on it that there was hardly any room left. So I’m undecided between 4 gigs with Linux or 8 gigs with XP.

    I’m going to be so jealous of everyone with their cute little pcs at Wiscon!

    Sadly, I do not have a camera, or a small mirror against which to take pictures with a Webcam. Someone else will have to surprise my EEE in action at Wiscon.
