Good day

Vast thanks to all the people that replied to the Ennui post a few days ago. I really needed the help/advice and it was cheering to see so many people offering useful tips/pointers.

It helped me a vast amount just to get all of that out - a combination of things that I've been thinking about for years, although the conclusions were ones I came to 3 or 4 years ago, it was still good to get it out of my head and down on paper.

Anyway, today is a good day. I feel happy, alive and together. There is a reason for this. The reason is that I have had a good night's sleep. Well, actually, no, I've had a better night's sleep than usual. I was asleep from 11-30 until Erin came to bed, then spent 15 minutes cheering her up before falling asleep again until 8. I haven't have enough sleep, but I've had sufficient that I don't feel drab and depressed.

Erin's new job offer came through this morning, and she'll be working 7-3 Monday - Thursday. This means that she'll be up at 5:30 I suspect, so she'll be going to bed by 10pm, latest. This means that I should be able to follow her to bed shortly thereafter and get a decent nights sleep.

I have, however, promised people that if I don't stop feeling depressed within the next couple of weeks, I'll go and see a doctor. I'm fairly sure that I don't fall into the depressed range, but it doesn't cost anything to make sure, and an independent opinion can't hurt.

Tech recommendations please

I was looking for what I wanted, and I suddenly realised that what I needed to do was ask all the techie people on here!

This is probably UK specific, but a US answer may at least point me in the right direction...

I want something computerlike I can carry around with me, that's small/light enough to basically forget about, but large enough to have a proper (albet small) keyboard that I can type things on.

So far, so standard PDA - the problem is that I want it to have GPRS access - basically I want to be able to do LJ posts from anywhere I am, without carrying around a laptop.

Anyone got any suggestions?
