Laptops/Smartphone Awarded to DTTBs

Finally, we were able to award the Acer and Neo laptops and Nokia E61i to the doctors-to-the-barrios. These were made possible by UPMASA. More details to follow.

Neo 540SVB laptop

I bought a Neo Q-Note 540 SVB based on Doc Mana's blog about it running quite well with Ubuntu. It's not for me -- it's for a doctor-to-the-Barrio (so in the end, s/he may opt to run Vista on it [yikes!].)

Anyway, it's always good to offer options to the end users rather than just let them get a proprietary operating system that they can't seem to get out of.

Haha. After the workshop with UPMASA, I spent the night breaking the casino bank (yes, I won 25 dollars), and walking around the strip from Wynn to Circus then back then again to Denny's but chickened out.

Finally got my steak at Terrace Pointe inside Wynn :(

Halfway around the world

Jetlagged. Now in Candlewood Las Vegas trying to get some sleep. It's 5pm in Manila so what do we expect?

When I checked in, I learned about the terror plot in UK and Glasgow and the heightened alert in LAX. I hope it all settles down within the week because I'll be there soon...

Room has gigabit Internet! I can send video to the Orange Kubo Hotel.
