Lynn's laptop is a Sony Vaio PCG-F490, a 40 GB Hard Drive, DVD and 128 megs of memory.
I've connected a Fellowes Secure Touch Fingerprint Reader & Optical Mouse (so Lynn doesn't have
to enter any passwords while surfing the net).
My browser of choice is FireFox; email program is Google Mail; newsreader is

I have retired carrying my Garmin iQue 3600 PDA with a 2 GB SD card, in favor of my iTouch. However,
I still keep it beside my computer and use its may features.
The Garmin iQue 3600 used to keep me on schedule, and keep me from getting lost as it's also a GPS.
I used: Teal Phone; Teal Glance; Teal Echo; Datebook 5; Adobe Acrobat Reader for Palm; OliveTree Bible Reader;
DietLog; KarKare 2.5; Personal Ancestory File (allows me to carry all 2,800+ ancestors, sources, and notes

Commander; FPS Clock 2; STRIP (Secure Tool for Recalling Important Passwords, 256 bit encryption); X-Master
(Hack manager); Launcher X (to manage the Garmin desktop).
Recently I've had a lady imply I might be a computer nerd, but I doubt she knew
what she was talking about. I mean I don't have a pocket protector, there isn't room
with my Apple iTouch, business card case, gold Cross fountain pen all in my shirt pocket.
Oh and of course my digital recorder in my sport coat or motorcycle vest pocket. <grin>.
