 Toronto, The First Look

Well, the battery went off in an hour or two. I need to buy a dual battery ASAP. The laptop, it is a Sony VAIO GRX616SP, with a P4 2.4 Mobile CPU, and 1GB of RAM! 60GB of Hitachi hard space, a DVD/CD reader and writer, and a wonderful 16" TFT display. I have not still found the time to set up my account on it and configure everything, but it works for now.

I bought a couple of nice DVDs, actually three, as one of them is a double collection. I hope I can set it up to play zone 1 DVDs too. Let me try... O it does! I already had Pink Floyd The Wall movie by Allan Parker. What I bought is Queen Live at Wembley Stadium, and The Wall live at Berlin. I'm going to have a nice time :D.

What I have not set up yet, and don't know if I can do, is the power management. I went out of battery last time without any notice. Maybe I ask somebody at the Linux Symposium to help me on that.

This morning I jumped out with Mehrdad to Computer Science department of University of Toronto. Checked the emails, and left there to set the residence at St Michael College, and pick my baggage and leave for Ottawa. A terrible rain started and showered my until I got home. All my documents got wet, but not the maps I bought after that :D. Fortunately I caught the bus, and I will be in Ottawa in four hours. I may not find the time to sign in for the symposium tonight.

In my way back home, I found an electronics shop. It had a wireless LAN card with a reasonable price, but kudzu simply SegFaulted when installing it, so I didn't got it.

The Queen started playing. It's a kind of magic. More later.
