    Wonderful! Annoying!

    I had that spinning digitised cat demo. Never seen it on the web though.

    6-cell li-on laptop batteries

    Many low-end laptops come with 6-cell li-on batteries with a life of 2 - 3 hours.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to swap out the lesser 6-cell and put in a better one with a longer life?
