Out of the door... on the road
I am going out of the door for a long weekend. Driving the Geekmobile up to Taupo, then Napier. Taupo is famous for its lake, and for being close to the Tongariro National Park, with its volcanos and ski stations. Napier is famous because of its Art Deco heritage. The city was destroyed by an earthquake in the 1930s and rebuilt with the style of that time. This is now its signature.

In Taupo we'll enjoy the hot pools, with nice hot natural water coming from the underground...

What am I taking? In true geek fashion, the Toshiba Tablet PC M200, the Windows Mobile Smartphone (GSM/GPRS), the Harrier Pocket PC (CDMA EV-DO) and my HP iPAQ h4150. I will keep up-to-date with my e-mails and postings on Geekzone and Geekmac through these devices.

By the way, just got my hands on the Toshiba Tablet Multi Dock station (pictured). Very nice. With this docking station I can use the Tablet PC in lots of different ways: standard docked notebook, primary monitor with external keyboard and mouse, extended desktop with desktop monitor, and digital notepad with a desktop monitor. The unit can be rotated for landscape or portrait screen orientation with adjustment to different height levels. Its integrated Slim SelectBay supports an optical drive, 2nd hard drive, and Bridge Media Adapter. Ports include 3-USB 2.0 ports, 10/100 Ethernet, RGB monitor port, Line-out jack, and AC input jack.

I now need a Bluetooth keyboard (already have two Bluetooth mouse) so I can be wireless while the Tablet PC is in the dock.
