Faybienne asks about computers in the field. I know of people who have had a
lot of success with them, but I couldn't work within the meagre constraints of
the battery power on mine; within two weeks I was banging away on a portable,
and I never turned back. The computer turned out to be useful to me only when
I was at a hotel. I'd like to hear about how others survived with their
computers in the field, and if anyone knows of battery-saver software
*currently* available.
