After reading your review, I am jealous of your all-day battery life
that you get out of your EeePC 1000.
I have an EeePC 900, and I have always felt like its battery was
somewhat weak. So today, I left it powered on, not really doing
anything, writing the date to a file every minute, screen blanked,
wireless on. After 193 minutes, it finally pooped out. Better than I
expected. I'll have to try again when I am actually USING it.
One other quirk that I noticed was that the BIOS forgot the time and my
BIOS password! So, quick security hack -- let the battery run dead and
my EeePC is pwned. :-)
