I'll do a proper report on the convention when I get back and have downloaded photos and have proper internet access again. Sadly the little Asus Eee (along with the mobile broadband dongle) that has proved so valuable for mobile internet access over the years is definitely showing its age and very few sites still work with the old browser. It is, however, still useful as a mobile word processor. The keyboard may be small, but I can touch type on it and it is far far better then using the phone's virtual keyboard.
I also want to apologise for not commenting on your LJ posts while I've been away. Until this last LJ update, the Eee could do that, now it can't. Also, I can no longer access Flickr. I really hate having to abandon equipment and gagdets that still work perfectly but have been superceded by the latest software that is not backwards compatible. :(
