Going to PodCamp!

I will be at Podcamp this Mon and Tue. Hope to see some of you there, too! I’ve heard a lot of good things about Mitch Joel. Thanks in advance to Michael Netzley for organising this and to Ben for the heads up. Also looking forward to hearing Melvin speak.
Note: I will not be live blogging this event. My Dell laptop displayed a blue screen a couple weeks ago, and now the battery light’s flickering rapidly which, according to the user guide, indicates a problem. The laptop can’t be turned on if its power cable is not attached, i.e. it can’t run on its battery anymore. It won’t survive the conference. I have to send it for repairs.
In the meantime, I will use a really small and sleek subnotebook. It’s black in colour and has been back in fashion over the last few years. It will never crash or run out of juice. It is cheaper than the laptops used by children in Third World countries, and even better – it doesn’t serve porn.
My new notebook is called a Moleskine.

    I did speak to you a bit about my podcasting studio but didn’t properly introduce myself. I’ll say hi tomorrow 🙂

    Hi. It’s Neil from the Dell Blog Team again. We met in Austin during SXSW a few months ago. It sounds like you’ve already got the repairs underway but if you still need help feel free to contact me and I’ll find someone with Dell Singapore to put you in touch with. Enjoy the conference.

    Hey Neil,
    Yup, we got the repairs done. Turns out the battery needed to be replaced. Upon further diagnostic checks, we learned that my hard drive was about to die too. Now that both have been replaced, things are working smoothly. Thanks for asking!
