Thanks For Your Time Toshiba T2000SX Laptop

MY T2000SX LAPTOP had been a trusty computer for many many years, but all good things come to an end, and now with mixed mind I’ve tossed it out.

My dad brought it home from work where it, after many years of usage, had depreciated to be worth nothing for a busy corporate business. But for me it was perfect for things like writing homework assignments, playing a game of Gorilla or Pacman, do some programming or connecting homemade electronics to its various ports.

It was a fine machine. It had no color screen or big harddrive or lots of RAM, but it was quite small, handy and low-noised. Some specs. can be found on the Toshiba site about the T2000SX.

In the beginning I mainly ran DOS on it, PC-DOS 5.0 I think, but later it was perfect for experiments with FreeBSD or Linux. I’ve mostly run Linux on it, but lastly it ran a multi-boot between the famous combo installation of PC-DOS 7 + Microsoft Windows 3.11 and an installation of Minix 2.0.0. Fun stuff, and both boots in a few seconds.

Word 2007 Learn From Vi

MICROSOFT WORD 2007 was in todays pool of software upgrades at work. Our previous edition of Word was the 2003 edition, and I must say that the UI and MMI has been changed to a whole new concept. It looks fine and all. And its actually pretty easy to navigate the new “Ribbon”, but the direct keyboard shortcuts are not visible in the (non-existing) menu’s anymore – so I forget them.

Complementary to the normal direct shortcuts, Microsoft has introduced a feature known from e.g. both the Opera and Konquerer browsers. When pressing the Alt key, every menu, group and function gets assigned one or more keys which activates the item… wait. That sounds familiar…

Skimming though Microsoft’s Word 2007 navigation tutorial a funny quote emerges: “In other words, you need to get out of text entry mode and into command mode.

That sounds like something taken right out of the Vi/Vim manuallol.
