Blame it on the Cost of Petrol

Times must either be hard or that I am hell of a careless idiot. In this case, I think both. My beloved Thinkpad T41 has gone, being swiped by two girls and a guy companion at Curve Starbux recent Saturday. I felt like kicking myself in the arse, but being a fat idiot, my legs could not go that far.

They must have been desparate seeing that they swiped it minus the power supply, which makes it more sore. But, live moves on, no need to cry over spilt milk. But to think that with a minor investment of a cup of coffee at that establishment, they can plot the "daylight robbery".

Lesson learnt,
a) Don't worry about getting a good place near a power socket, get the drinks first and sit down where there is a seat.
b) Don't try chatting up the baristers as the longer you are away, the higher the risk
c) God is trying to give me a sign........(I wonder what it cud be)
d) There is no sex discrimination in theft.
Hmmmmm.....where is that silver lining beneath this cloud??

oh shit. that really sucks. maybe the silver lining is the fact that you're going to replace it with an even more kick ass notebook?

Hmmm, what would be a Kick ass Notebook to buy. I do like the clickety keyboard of the Thinkpad, but at the moment, maybe its time for a change. Any suggestions....

Thinkpad Z series, and a Kensington notebook lock.

screw IBM ; go for dell, like the one spoonfork has.. maybe inspiron 6400, its cheap and the warranty is good. or if you have more cash then inspiron 9400 .. remember dell also got "clickety" sound.. patented.. so its cool.. and also get an anchor for your notebook..

[pick yin] Kensington Notebook Lock? Sounds English, is it any good?

[Alphademon] Yeah Dell is good, but somehow I kinda prefer the Thinkpad tho, but it is so damn expensive. I saw spoonfork being safe on Sunday, tying his notebook to the chair, table and tiang.

[Anonymous] Good sign?, I hope it is not to complicated and symbolic as I may not have no time to decipher.

[Lin] What is not a good idea??
