Whats new in the land of the Eee?

Not too much tweaking the last couple of weeks - I've mainly been focusing on using the lill guy. Typing on the small keyboard goes better and better, even if the touchpad is giving me trouble - it's right under where my thumbs hoover, so sometimes I'll touch it, send the cursor to a completly different part of the screen and not notice until a sentence later...

One thing I have done is to install KompoZer, so I can make websites on my Eee if the urge overtakes me. I've even worked out roughtly how large the 'usable' part of the screen is for a webpage (760 x 340 if anyone is interested - the rest will be taken up by menues and scrollbars). So if I can come up with something thats worth putting online, and I can work out how to use KompoZer, I can make the site on the Eee...

The intersting thing is how I installed it thought... my first brush with apt-get. Worked perfectly, and all I had to do afterwards was to use the Launcher Tools to put an icon on the Easy mode Desktop.

Yupp, got to love my powerfull lill Eee.

Dude. Doesn't Kompozer run really slow on the Eee? Why not just code in Kate or some texteditor? I do that :)
