    Excellent Idea. Now I can read while I go, plus surf, build more "crappy" pages all without moving. Sure beats a catheter. Put a lock on the door and some charmin for stationary and I am set. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    I just use the laptop and wireless nic. Works quite nicely and you've an endless supply of reading material, but it's a little weird when someone wants to chat.

    Now if I can just figure out how to safely use it whilst soaking in the tub ... I've fried a couple keyboards on the old one with dribbling coffee and I don't want to chance it yet.

    Ah well since I acquired an iPaq I can now play Nethack in the loo, beats taking a newspaper (to read that is).

    LOL I agree Moo. The Ipaq probably isn't bothered by a few drops of water so you can probably use it in the tub as well. Just get one of those trays with the reading rack.

    LOL I should recommend that to some of my clients. I think the Panasonic Toughbook has a waterproof keyboard. I ditched my IBM "Stinkpad" for a Portege back in February and it's become like a prosthesis<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon12.gif>. I almost never use the desktop now. Nothing beats working with your feet up in a chair on the deck outside.

    Maybe this is a newbie question, but can you get an authentic echo when you are on the phone?

    Yes, you can achieve an excellent echo. Rumor has it that when Orson Wells made his infamous War of the Worlds broadcast, he simulated the alien spaceship door opening by placing a Mason jar and microphone in the, er, bowl. It resulted in a deep cavernous echo.

    I've been contemplating a unit that can be mounted to my old wicker fishing creel. Just afraid of loosing in the river when I open the lid to grab a brewski. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
    Maybe I should contact the fine folks at BackcountryStore.com? Or, should I apply for the patent first? :cool:
