Looking for a small transportable WiFi device to connect with at airports,
etc. Plan to look at the Asus Eeepc, Palm TX, and the HP iPac 111. Any
others? Suggestions? Comments on any of the above?

I have been using Nokia N800 for almost a year and it works really well.
Small, very portable and high resolution screen (800x480). EePC is just
too big to be a portable and too small to be a laptop replacement. If
you must a have a built-in keyboard, Nokia N810 is another option. Both
of these have wifi and bluetooth. Tether them to a bluetooth phone
with data plan and you can access internet just about anywhere. Both
have surprisingly good built-in stereo speakers for multipmedia
playback. Nokia N800 is priced quite attractively at this time ($199-

light will be afraid of himself, and observing
himself sustained in the body given him by nature between those two abysses
of the Infinite and Nothing, will tremble at the sight of these marvels; and
I think that, as his curiosity changes into admiration, he will be more
disposed to contemplate them in silence than to examine them with

For, in fact, what is man in nature? A Nothing in comparison with the
Infinite, an All in comparison with the Nothing, a mean between nothing and
everything. Since he is infinitely removed from comprehending the extremes,
the end of things and their beginning are hopelessly hidden from him in an
impenetrable secret; he is equally incapable of seeing the Nothing from
which he was made, and the Infinite in which he is swallowed up.

What will he do then, but perceive the appearance of the middle of things,
in an eternal despair of knowing either their beginning or their end. All
things proceed from the Nothing, and are borne towards the Infinite. Who
will follow these marvellous processes? The Author of these wonders
understands them. None other can do so.

Through failure to contemplate these Infinites, men have rashly rushed into
the examination of nature, as though they bore some proportion to her. It is
strange that they have wished to understand the beginnings of things, and
thence to arrive at the knowledge of the whole, with a presumption as
infinite as their object. For surely this design cannot be formed without
presumption or without a capacity infinite like nature.

If we are well informed, we understand that, as nature has graven her image
and that of her Author on all things, they almost all partake of her double
infinity. Thus we see that all the sciences are infinite in the extent of
their researches. For who doubts that geometry, for instance, has an
infinite infinity of problems to solve? They are also infinite in the
multitude and fineness of their premises; for it is clear that those which
are put forward as ul
