Second install...

Right now, I am reinstalling Ubuntu on the EEE again -- this time without swap and on ext2 filesystems instead of ext3. This should result in fewer writes to the SSD, which should increase its lifespan and conserve battery power.

I named the machine 'kodama' -- all our machines are named after non-human characters that appear in Ghibli movies, and since it's small and white, 'kodama' fit the bill.

It's quite an impressive machine that's easy to use. Battery life is not overly long, but there are some tweaks I can do to improve that.
