    My new Office



    there's a shot of my new rolling office. a 2006 Prius! Snazzy graphics package and everything. fully loaded with the upscale bells and whistles package from Toyota GPS, DVD navigation system, 6 disc changer and backup camera, plus a pedestal mount for my laptop, and mobile broadband. Should be pretty comfy for those long drives interrupted by long walks while taking my photos.

    Here's the back view, which is even louder than the front.


    Have to get my round tuit and get the front yard picked up one of these days. huh?

    Oh, and I also joined the networked generation, have to upload photos every night, so I needed a LAN, got a new wireless router installed today, but forgot to buy an extra cat6 cable, so I'll have to pick one up on my travels.
    tomorrow.
    Why a cable for a wireless router? throughput is better when hard wired, though I can hook up via wireless with ease as well for general use. The nightly upload will take too long via wireless (or so I'm told).

    nice ride/office

    don't waste the extra money on cat 6 cable, you wont even come close to using the bandwidth of cat 5 cable.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll be sure and pick up cat5 instead, though I would be expensing it either way. I can't wait to hit the road in the morning, hope the weather is decent so I can do some photography.

    Enjoy the Prius. My son is a 'green' advocate. He loves his Prius and spends more time on a Prius chat forum than us nuts do here. BTW, you will get better milage stop and go than on the highway.

    I've already noticed that, the Prius is designed to be most efficient where other cars are least efficient; in the city especially in stop and go traffic. I will be doing a LOT of that, so I expect I'll be in the 50+ mpg range most of the time. I consistently got 40+ with my 4 cyl mazda Protege, last summer, I'm looking forward to playing the 'maximum mpg' game with the new wheels.

    Hey Ned, I didn't know you were on the NASCAR circuit. However, I don't recognize your team sponsor.

    LOL! It does remind you of that doesn't it? Ken do you know what NASCAR really stands for though?
