This page is an attempt at creating a very compact, yet usable link collection. The reason I put my links on the web, is to have them accessible from everywhere, unlike a browsers bookmarks, which are accessible only on a specific computer.

Topical: Notebook review, I need a new laptop to replace my old Inspiron 8500. I should have again a WUXGA screen (LED backlit?) incorporate as much of newest technology as possible - Santa Rosa, 802.11n, bluray/HDDVD, solid state drive, ExpressCard -, so I can keep it for several years and possibly have a built-in webcam, a three button touchpad, come with Linux or no OS preinstalled and be fully supported by a recent Linux kernel, run for many hours on battery (evtl. 8-9 hours with bay/extended battery) yet be lightweight and look good. These are possible candidates up to now: Dell Inspiron 1520, Latitude D830 and Precision M4300, HP Compaq 8510w, Lenovo T61p and Fujitsu Celsius H250, though none of them seems yet "the one I'm looking for".
