    Obviously, this one only applies to laptop owners...

    I admit that I have. Gotta love Airport.:D

    you see, young man, it goes like this (as a senior citizen man tells a young person)

    yesterday was a good day!

    at 6 am, i pissed this stream a good six feet...i could have put out a fire

    and at 7 am, i took a dump the size of the empire state building...and i was mighty proud

    only problem, i woke up at eight:confused:

    Well no, I don't know if I'm ready to take my laptop into the bathroom with me. Maybe in a few years when it gets really obselete. ;)

    a freind of mine is a marine biologist and when he works for stanford, hopkins marine, they just toss that thing. rev b firewire graphite ibook, on the boat with the rest of the gear and sometimes they encounter a bumpy ride with swelling seas

    and the funny thing is, that salty scratched ibook holds up...he has trashed pc laptops in the past doing his fish gathering/testing or whatever they do out in the open ocean

    and in all the trips out to sea, the guy does not bring a laptop bag...i don't suggest putting your ibook through those types of trials

    another man i know, many years in the us navy, never got seasick until he took out one of those small research vessels out just off shore...i guess the pacific ocean could toss a 80 ft boat in a way it can't toss a 600 ft navy destoyer

    Nothing like the stories of a leaky old man.;)

    At least there was no ointment of any sort involved in the story...

    I haven't yet, but with the wireless set up in the house, I can. Knowing that is more than enough - I'll probably never put it to the test.

    Re: Do you post while in the john?

    Why not a poll about this? héhéhé:D

    Like :
    no never done it.
    did it once too difficult
    doing it once in a while
    Seems that I get a postcount boost every time I'm in the John.
    Damn is it already that late, I forgot to get off, damn ... one more post then.

    Or something like that
    :p

    I intended to, but the option wasn't there...or I didn't see it. *shrug*

    what the hell is wrong with you people, anyway... posting on the john... well i could make the john pun, but it wouldn't be polite (and he spelled it Jon anyway)... heh... otherwise never posted on the toilet, tho i do admit to having worked on laptops there, i dont have one now!

    :)

    I've done it once or twice, but that's only when I couldn't pry myself away from my internet connection... The bad part is the ethernet cable running from my room to the bathroom :D

    Haven't done so... yet:D

    The iBook does have an Airport card. Maybe I'll try it when I can get DSL and an Airport network...
