Gobi7: Day 0

I decided not to take unboxing pictures but it was fun to cut into the box and see what was inside. So initial impressions that it is really light, keyboard is tight but does not seem unreasonable. After plugging in the batter the configuration screen was easy to walk through, the hardest part was typing the wifi key in while only looking at \* and hoping I had them all right.

All right, I had all the config data in based on the details I was given... no joy. Okay, so I figure keyboard driver error. Double check everything, no joy. Okay, try wired connection instead of wireless, no joy. Time to ask the experts, after a couple of emails I find that I do have everything set correctly so more investigation is needed.

So the Gobi does take longer to boot than a SR2 but I did not think it was to long. The machine does appear to slow down and take a long time when saving config files and starting to use them. I can't speak on performance yet since I am not connected.

End of day 0, no joy, sad Gobi7.

For what it's worth.

hello,
just wanted to say I found your site through a google search of high country pathway... researching the trail. I'm a fellow MI backpacker and have found some of your backpacking entries very useful. my buddy and I are doing the manistee river trail this month.
