This is Doc on his new toy - a WiFi laptop - so now even when I'm stuck on my armchair I can still pester you all!

Did someone leave a tube of super glue on your armchair?

So you're not an armchair philosopher, just an armchair pestererer!

Unfortunately, on occasions I feel to weak to stand.

Hi Doc,

good to see you back!
You've got the wireless laptop for a good start...
now you need open air and a lot of sunshine to make plenty of D-vitamin:


...may be a UVBlamp for iguanas would sort the same effect.
Take care

iko

Thank you, Enrico. At least you are civil to me, not like these other peasants

Congrats Doc! thats great! I bought this Moto "Q" for the same reason... so much bed rest that I needed access in my recliner and bed.. so my phone hee works great...its a mini computer and I love it!

I would however prefer a laptop for screen and key size!

This 1 is actually a notepad. Smaller and lighter than a laptop.

Key size isn't everything. It is what you do with it that counts.

One of those 9 inch sized with solid state storage?

It's roughly A4 size when closed and has a 160Gb hard drive. It's An Advent 4213 if you want to check it out.

I am looking at three - The Acer, the Samung and a Dell. Carrying around an 8# full-sized laptop is a pain in the shoulder, esp. if it is accompanied in your brief case by several pounds of paper and a couple of paper notebooks & a pad of note paper.

Whether or not Doc is posting TNS from his armchair or not,
he'll still be a quirky rodent/poster and a great one as well.  [;)]
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.
