In my effort to not whine and complain too much I am stuck in a position with not a lot to blog about because it has been a pretty cruddy few days. On top of that, I have somehow managed to get behind again at work in the matter of just 3 days.

However, one thing to sorta be happy about is that DH just up and ordered me a laptop that will work instead of cleaning off my old one to be repaired. It was sort of selfish of him because now he will take over that one when it gets fixed. It wasn't the one that I really wanted but he is fearful that I would break a tablet on a jobsite so I will just have to wait for future technological advances. I would love to find a cellphone/pocket pc combo that is powerful enough to run my software on it but so far I have only found standalone pocket pc's that can support it. Soon though hopefully someone will come out with a bigger one, unless of course I am just looking in the wrong place.

So hopefully tomorrow we will be able to download my work software on the new laptop because I can't find the key codes tonight so I need to get them from my office and I will be back to being able to work on the move. Hopefully it will help. Plus now that it is hot out and DH is refusing to run the CAC because we haven't had the guy out yet this year, it is really sticking hot up here. One of these years, we will get the extreme temperature difference issue resolved but umm.. we have to solve a few other issues first. Whoops, I better stop before I start ranting about all the crud that needs to get done right now. We are in the middle of a money suck again and of course it came right after we started spending money on ourselves again. At least the laptop is a write off and gets depreciated on our taxes.

Stay cool!

Congratulations on the new laptop; though I'm sorry you're having a crappy few days.

The next thing we'll look for will depend on requirements and what's available at the time you come up for cellphone replacement. It's vista "ready" (per dh requirements), has a card reader, and is built well. You'll like.

Tablets aren't cost effective yet, or waterproof.

PocketPC's are stable (sometimes), cheaper (mass-produced), upgradable (mini sd-card), and typically easier to handle (don't drop it in a lake while fishing, or in the snow for x days. :)
