CTCD.com sucks eggs.

I need to have an organizer because I keep on forgetting important things. I live life too spontaneously (which is good, as long as I don't have to do my laundry). I have an iPAQ at home, but the battery life is too short to be of practical use. It can't connect to WiFi using WPA-PSK because HP no longer supports the firmware. It can't send text messages too, although it can connect to my phone via Bluetooth so that it can push/fetch the messages. It can connect to the Internet via Bluetooth. Unfortunately, Bluetooth makes it drain power more quickly. Lugging two devices is not very practical too.

Basically, I just need a very small PC so that I can:
  • Use it as an organizer or music player.
  • Connect to our office via SSH to remotely fix small bugs in my code.
  • Check my IRC bots for important messages.
  • Check my e-mail.
Maybe I need an iPhone? Hmm... But iPhone is over-hyped and over-priced. I won't buy it unless its price drops down by around 60%. It's not that great anyway. An iPhone clone from China would be OK because I'll just replace its operating system with Linux or NetBSD. Unfortunately, I don't know if it can run those operating systems because I don't have sample hardware to play with.

I think I'll just get myself an Eee PC or MSI Wind. They seem to hit the sweet spot between price, portability, and functionality. I can use a USB HSDPA modem to connect to the Internet if there's no WiFi.

I'll try to wake up early tomorrow. In order to do that, I'll:
  1. Sleepy early (10PM, probably?).
  2. Refrain from playing DOTA.
  3. Drink coffee before sleeping (optional).
  4. Resist the temptation of going back to sleep.
I love sleeping. Dunno why.
