I posted about my lack of updates in one of the previous posts dated 10/18, but I think it is easily over looked. I'm updating again. I've had some tech issues and wifi issues while traveling so uploading my photos and videos were next to impossible.
Part of the problem has been the wifi built into my computer... it's not very good and especially not good when I use Ubuntu Linux 8.04. I've been fairly disappointed with it's performance. I may need to buy a express card wifi card for my laptop. I'm in Phuket right now and haven't seen any computer shops where I'm staying, so I'm making due with what I've got. At least the net connection here is decent enough.
