I was tweaking the memory settings on my Toshiba R25 (http://sumocat.blogspot.com/2006/11/flickr-first-photos-of-my-new-tablet.html) Saturday night and unfortunately found one that it absolutely hated. Kept crashing minutes into startup. Tried to do a System Restore but it turned off amid all the crashes, which dumped all my restore points. By then, I'd given up and went to my backup image, which worked like a charm. The backup was a few weeks old, but I managed to pull all the documents since then. Lost some time but no loss of data. Acronis TrueImage (http://www.acronis.com/) rocks!

While the big tablet was restoring, I went with my wife to a meeting of the Blue Ridge Vegan Society (http://www.blueridgeveg.org/index.html) and took my little Electrovaya Scribbler (http://sumocat.blogspot.com/2005/11/electrovaya-scribbler.html) with me. I must say, even though it was nice to have the smaller, lighter tablet in hand and on its little stand, I was feeling a little "Flowers for Algernon" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flowers_for_Algernon) with that little screen and wimpy processor. Nothing but Core 2 Duo or better for me from now on.
