Acer Aspire One

So I recently got one of those Acer Aspire Ones. It's a handy little netbook, and very portable. I really enjoy using it to surf the internet and read stuff while I'm out. I'm still learning, bit by bit, how to use Linux, so here are the sites that have come in handy for me thus far:
Aspire One
Aspire One Tips and Tricks
Learning the Shell
Linux Keyboard Shortcuts
Google Blogoscoped
(the last two to hopefully find out when Google Chrome comes out for Linux)

I'm also on the lookout for a good sleeve for the thing, or a small case. I bought a bible book cover, which fits the thing perfectly, but it's a bit on the bulky side. Mostly, I don't know what to do with the power cord. On the other hand, I'm considering buying one of the 9-cell batteries so maybe I won't have to carry my power cord with me so much.

I'm also back to tutoring Economics this semester, so my website and my other blog should see periodic updates (each have been updated in the last week).

Linux isn't that bad really.

Certainly not! There's just a slight learning curve.
