Today, having two birthdays, I turn 68. Halfy birthday to me! :-P
It's a long story, like I mentioned, one that begins with, Once upon a time, a slightly deaf functionary at the National Statistics Office jotted down the birthday of one Alex... Boring.
I'm not doing anything special today, having maxed out my celebrations over the weekend.* So, I'm introducing you to my two Nokia Internet Tablets (NITs), with which we'll hopefully have lots of fun in future posts.
Here's orthanc, a Nokia 770 running ITOS 2006 booted from its 2GB RS-MMC. Got it for about PHP 9K at Infomax in Megamall. It's currently with bro Togz for "one week", hehe.
And here's osgiliath, a Nokia N800 running ITOS 2008. It boots from the third partition of its internal 8GB SD; it also has a 16GB SD in its external slot. I've paired a ThinkOutside Stowaway Universal Bluetooth Keyboard with it (not shown). It's sitting on my Altec Lansing inMotion iM4, and is running KDE in the screenshot. I got it for about 16K via TipidPC.
Will I be getting an N810? Probably not, though the integrated GPS and keyboard are really tempting.
All for now.
* Eyan and sis Lea did treat me to a tasty and spicy hottttt Thai dinner last night. Thankeeee!
