today's Acer update and happenings

Today I took the Acer to class. In the front pocket of the case, I had a USB cable, a pair of ear buds, my card reader, and the Brailliant 24. The case was not overpacked.

I'm still tweaking things and playing with the battery life. There seem to be some memory-intensive programs in the start-up, and when I disable them I get better battery life. For example, why do I need WinDVD running when the thing has no optical drive? There's also something called launch manager. I'm not sure what this does yet, but I'll be researching it. I don't need to run Skype at all times... So we will see what happens next time I power it up.

I applied for August graduation this morning. Wow!

It's my understanding that the Acer launch manager enables the multimedia keys on the keyboard.

Glad the computer is working out for you so far. Are you using XP or Vista?

August graduation, how exciting!

Acer and operating system
I'm still on XP--have been lucky to find plenty of options. There is a tiny HP with Vista, but I think it would suffer badly as it has only 2 GB of memory. I wouldn't want to run Vista on a machine like that.
