Testing, testing...

Eek! Mokkun has arrived and is currently being set up. He's purdy, but the touchpad is a bit annoying when typing. I'm the sort who usually has the hands against the palm rests when typing and it sometimes interferes when using the touchpad. (My left keeps brushing it.) I might have to see about disabling the touchpad and using the mouse that came with this thing. Shall see. So far, I like the machine although the glossy screen might give me problems over time. (Eye strain could be a definite issue methinks.) As it is, I think I'll get either a laplander, an iLap by raindesign, or some other notebook cooler that can be used on the lap. I think this laptop could get quite warm and I can use the added height of a stand.

So far, trying to figure out how to install the language bar (which didn't really need installing per se) has been a half hour adventure. ^^;; I'll have to decide what else I'm going to install. :P And since I have no idea if Telus has finally updated their access programs for Vista, I'm currently working on dial-up. (Besides, the desktop just booted my old lappie out of the rotation and I don't feel like booting FSU's system out of the rotation next. :P ) I really must figure out how to set up a wireless network... ^^;

Anyhow, so far so good, Vista's UAC isn't driving me to distraction yet, the system's a lot more sturdy than I'd hoped for (I'd seen a low-end Asus at the store and was decidedly unimpressed, but this one seems decent), so we'll see how the rest of the set-up and installation goes. :P Here's to hoping everything gets finished up tonight and everything gets cleaned up too. Boxes, and stuff everywhere. ^^;; (And why is my hand constantly drifting right in search of a mouse...? :P )
