I was waffling, what with the price of gas, and with the husband not going (especially if the husband's employer paid like last year, which makes my total expenses pretty much, um, lemme add it up: the conference registration fee)... and then the TiBook's keyboard decided numbers were unnecessary. (And actually, they almost are. But the symbols above the numbers... I can't get by without those.)
Add that to its intrasigence when it comes to connecting to networks, and... bah. That was the tipping point.
Le sigh. I kinda liked the Moose track.
