+ - What's your ultimate laptop bag?-> 1

jacobcaz writes "I've been on a quest for the holy grail of a laptop bag/daypack. Right now I would be stashing a Dell D820, but would eventually like to migrate to a MacBook 15". I've been carrying a Wenger backpack which has a ton of room, but is heavy when empty and lets me load way too much into it to carry around.

What laptop back do you love and consider the ultimate bag? I would like to hear from people who are using backpacks or slings, or shoulder bags that let you carry your laptop in a vertical orientation."

Introducing the Slashdot Firehose 320

Posted by CmdrTaco
from the who-wants-to-drink-from-the-firehose dept.
Logged in users have noticed for some time the request to drink from the Slashdot Firehose. Well now we're ready to start having everybody test it out. It's partially a collaborative news system, partially a redesigned & dynamic next-generation Slashdot index. It's got a lot of really cool features, and a lot of equally annoying new problems for us to find and fix for the next few weeks. I've attached a rough draft of the FAQ to the end of this article. A quick read of it will probably answer most questions from how it works, what all the color codes mean, to what we intend to do with it.

Nothing happens.
