With my new discretionary income, I have been able to periodically get myself some new gadgets. The solar panel I bought to use over at the Citgo dock (where there's no outlets) turned out to be extremely practical, given the typical amount of sunlight Florida gets. It has kept my phone alive for several long days while working over there.
Just recently, I won an eBay auction for a used Kindle in very good condition. I wasn't really terribly interested in one, but I want to read some HTML ebooks, and the e-ink display and battery life measured in weeks (not to mention the moderate price point) convinced me to give it a shot. It's shipping out today, I'll post more about it after I've had a chance to play with it.
Actually, both of those purchases were direct results of the restrictions of working at Citgo. Hmm.
