    Yes, but if you hadn't commented, the rest of us would have had no idea this amusing little post was out here.

    why my wife should let me spend our rent money on an unlocked G1

    Sorry Bro. I settled on what the wife gave me

    It actually syncs quite well on my linux installs as a mass storage device and plays mp3 and mp4 and avi just fine and I read comic books with it also.

    I like mine though wireless is done through phone contract at 10 dollars for 90 days through H20 wireless. Only 200 minutes at 10 bucks a pop but roll over works.

    SMS Internet, and Phone. Price was cheap as a case of beer.

    Edit: I had LQ pick this at random and seeing it is from 2008. It's point is probably moot by now. I just necro replied.

    Root your G1 and add cyanogenmod came up with its own documentation wiki, so no point in updating this one

    Top applications to help you ditch windows permanently

    IMHO, it would be a lot better to recommend Krita as a replacement for Photoshop. Krita feels very Photoshop-like as soon as you execute the program. I'm sure GIMP is very powerful once you learn the ins and outs, but I don't think a former Photoshop user is going to turn GIMP on and say "Wow, its an open-source Photoshop". But a first time Krita user might say "Wow, this does most of the stuff Photoshop does..."

    One piece of software, that prevented my escape from M$ to Linux, is Quicken that I used for all financial data. I found Moneydance which includes the primary features that I used in Quicken. Problem solved!

    Although my Latitude D505 has XP Pro and many M$ programming packages, I rarely use it. This was my present for completing my Associate's Degree. If the OS ever becomes corrupt, I was given XP Home. I would lose all the M$ programming software. If that ever happens, I will install Linux.

    To add to your notes, I'd like to mention a plug-in that I find extremely useful for pidgin: pidgin-otr.

    pidgin-otr allows you to encrypt data you transmit through pidgin. It can be toggled on or off (if, for instance you have friends who don't use pidgin-otr or use a different IM client). Pidgin-otr can even offer basic key-based authentication (if a buddy gets his account broken into, the attacker likely won't have the original key for your buddy, which should tip you off that something isn't right).

    I use it regularly, and it's quite nice.

    Moving sucks ...... but with a new crib comes mythtv !

    Been there, done that, too.

    I'm unlucky enough to be old enough to have a ton of old analogue/linear electronic gear to cart around whenever I move. I hardly ever use the stuff but can't bear to part with it. Least favorite item to hump around is my faithful old HP Vector Network Analyzer with assorted cables, bridges, spitters and terminations. The service manual for it alone must weigh about 20lbs. Then there are the 'scopes, the signal generators, frequency couters and the cart-loads of spares. :-(
