Posting throughout the summer

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

As you all know, I’ll be gone for five weeks. I’ve been thinking about how to deal with this – to no avail! I don’t think I’ll have time to write five weeks worth of posts, with finals and everything coming up, and I leave two days after said finals end.

So, does anyone have a solution for me? I’m considering buying a laptop through Craigslist/Kijiji etc, but I’ll only need it for the five weeks!! Can you, like, rent laptops or something? O.o

    Hmm…. you probably *can* rent laptops, but I feel like for the cost and hassle, you might as well buy one. Dell has these teeeny tiny new ones starting at around $400. If you only need to surf the net, do some word processing, etc., they should do well. (I’m thinking of getting one myself… helpful for working on planes/busses) And come college/university (if that’s in the plans), it’ll be handy to have.

    Otherwise, is your immersion program through a school? Maybe you’ll have temporary access to their computers while you’re there (esp. if it’s through McGill or Université de Quebec à Montréal [UQAM] or Concordia, because I’m betting their libraries or info commons will be open longer. I know our info commons at the U of T are open until 11pm weeknights even during the summer.)

    Scheduled posts are hard for 5 weeks- believe me I tried for 7 weeks and managed to get about 4 done til I signed up for wireless internet.

    About renting laptops in Canada, I’m not sure but here in Australia it was waaaayyy overpriced and the places I looked all required 6-12 months renting period so I bought a laptop instead.

    Otherwise, enjoy the 5 weeks off! But we want to hear from you again ok?? :-)

    I agree with Glitterati. I’ve been thinking of getting a minibook for about $300, which is probably not that much more than renting.
