Re: [z_scale] Movin' an' such...
- Hey Rob, I was hoping that you'd say hello.
Yup, I'm planning to go through Columbus and Dublin, wherever that is? I'm
looking forward to dropping in on you and chewing the fat about our favorite
subject...computers...oops, I mean Z scale!
At the moment, we don't know when the furniture, including the computer,
will arrive in Toronto. Since early July is peak season for the movers,
they may not get there for two weeks or more. In a fit of insanity, I
bought a new toy in order to keep in touch while on the road and while cut
off from our high speed internet connection...an HP Jornada 680e color H/PC.
I added all the bells and whistles: 56k modem, 32 Meg ram, 128 Meg flash
memory storage, cool software and some other stuff to convince my bosses
that this toy is a business tool, hey, hey!
You know what the best thing about this little gem is? My wife likes it
So what does this super pocket PC have to do with Z Scale, you ask? Well, I
can keep up to date on the list for the next two months while on holidays,
travelling around New England and Qu�bec. I also have a couple of articles
in the works for ZTrack Magazine so I have to be able to get them to you
from wherever I happen to be when I get the urge to write!
Also, I can surf the web to get instructions on how to lay my switches. I
will be able to use my lifeline, i.e. call Billy Roden via email for his
expert advice when I get stuck. I hope to have the track done for the NMRA
regional convention in Detroit in September remember.
So Rob, expect a call from me some time in the first week of July.
