Traveling with a Laptop

It’s nice to travel with a laptop, because it lets me catch up on some of those longer posts, sitting in my “to write” folder, that I haven’t devoted the time to finish. I’m not a professional writer, and all the distractions at home tend to pull me away from long essays. However, sitting in the airport or on the plane for hours allows one some time to reflect.

Hopefully, this space will be seeing some longer posts soon with DEEP THOUGHT in them.

    Congrats on the laptop. Honestly, I enjoy traveling with my TabletPC, except for when its frustrating going through some TSA checkpoints. Dulles, National, and BWI are fine. Atlanta was good. So was Jacksonville. Orlando was a mess.

    I find I blog alot more when I’m carrying my Cingular 8125 or my HP tc4400 with me. It’s easier to snap pictures or blog when the thoughts hit you then trying to remember it for a day, few days, or a week. :)

    I’m looking forward to the longer posts and deep thoughts. :) …just no bashing Dresden, mmkay? It might not be true to Jim Butcher’s vision, but my wife and I like the casting of Dresden and Bob. I hope the show sticks around. I agree with you about BSG, it jumped the shark.

    Dresden has settled down a bit. Although the pulled a comic book trick with the substitute Murphy last weekend. “Look! Character development…psych! We gotcha!”

    I’ve established in my mind that the show and the books are entirely different universes, so it doesn’t bother me anymore.

    Now, I had a good fight with a guy last night in Outback about the travesty we call Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings…

    So I take it you’re glad that Peter Jackson isn’t directing the Hobbit? :)

    The Jim Butcher novels are available for download from eReader. Having TiVo’ed and seen all the Dresden Files episodes, I’m wondering about reading the novels. I’m hoping to learn more about Dresden, his uncle, the High Council, and “ancient Maya?” Do the novels go into depth about Dresden’s family, past, and uncle?

    I enjoyed Peter Jackson’s vision and style, but Peter Jackson directing “Lord of the Rings” was like Tim Burton directing “Planet of the Apes” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” both bring their own style & vision, original vision be damned. :) I wonder what a Jackson-less Hobbit will be like?

    The easisest thing to do for the Dresden Novel/TV transition is just assume that everything you know about the characters in either platforms is entirely different on the other. Then you won’t be upset.

    There are a large number of synonomous themes and character traits between the books and the show, but they are vastly overshadowed by the differences.
