    What to do without a computer?
    Right,

    I live with my girlfriend, a kind of new thing, moved together in a new country, to me anyway. So at the moment we are sharing a computer, until mine gets shipped over. My girlfriend believe it or not took the computer away with her last weekend to go to her parents chalet and wants to do so again this weekend.

    I was at a complete loss without my computer, I honestly didn't have a clue what to do with my time.

    What does everyone do without a computer?

    Help!

    I cry... actually, I walk around the apartment like a caged animal and I get grouchy really really grouchy. I'd rather run out of hot water then lose my internet connection.

    Then I wonder how I survived early childhood. Since I hadn't even seen a computer at school until 3rd grade and only occasionally got to use one.

    I would probably just sit down with a pen and paper and jot down ideas of things to do once I had a computer again.

    Play console video games.
    Read more stuff.
    Sleep more.
    Take a drive.

    cook, cook, and cook some more! Although all my recipes are online, so I might have to try to invent some of my own.

    Second vote on the iphone. [img]images/icons/icon14.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/icon14.gif[/img]

    Prior to the iphone debut I was seriously looking into UMPCs and was minutes away from buying the Sony UX280P but thank fully I waited. Now there isn't much that I can't do on the go and without all that bulk.
    Continued Success,
