Blogging On The Road

Well, today is the beginning of my third week of my new job (which is fast loosing the veneer of new). But I've now switched over to riding the bus.

On the plus side, it seems that there is sufficient cell service along the entire route that I can do anything I want, whether that be general web browsing or blogging in particular, form the comfort of my Sidekick. The only downside I see is the route(s) I have to take. One of the perks my employers offers is a free (to me) bus pass. However, it's only good on Sound Transit (the regional bus service) and Metro (serving King County), excluding service on Community Transit (which serves the area in which I live, Snohomish County). &gumble; So to get to my job in north Bellevue, I end up taking Sound Transit 530 from Canyon Park all the way down to downtown Bellevue, and the Metro 220 from there up to my building, which fortunately has a 220 stop right by the front door.

Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about the 405 commute any more.

I'm glad to hear you're finding comfort in your Sidekick. I'm a Debian user and I work at Danger on the Sidekick (or hiptop or whatever). Its certainly a key part of my awful SF bay area commute.
