That and a production on call support schedule

when I worked at at&t I bought the eeepc 701 right when it came out because a small, cheap laptop without a cdrom was exactly what i wanted to carry around. So i got into the elevator with an at&t exec, he looks at the eeepc and with a smirk says "oh that is one of those kids laptops" ... yeah whatever...
