7 days without my Linux laptop

7 days in hospital for dengue treatment also meant 7 days without my Linux laptop. Had it not been for the BlackBerry Pearl, my life would have become dead boring.

The only big trouble I had was that on the 26, I had to submit my desired university thesis topics (what I would want to write about). To submit it I would have to fill it a form, have my name signed, and get it sent to the faculty office. Luckily, one of my friends sent it to my Gmail account and I was able to forward the doc from my phone to my sister at home. The rest was done easily except for the fact that it was rather tough to sign: my right hand was being used for medical treatment methodology.

Everyday I would tweet and read what people tweet about. I didn’t get a Facebook app on my cellphone so Facebooking was limited.

Occasionally I was able to read a few blog posts and some news in both Vietnamese and English.

Tim, my project  “E-learner 2.0″ advisor shared his Dengue experience. It was scary. He was almost dead and it haunted him for 6 months.

When you’re not with a computer, be sure to bring the cellphone alone.

Oh btw, we’re launching our website pretty soon and will start raising funds to start the project. 2009 will be a tough year so we may not get as much funding as we want. But we will try our best!

    I did sth for an e-Learning pj last year (study & deploy LMS, making some e-Learning courses…) and I love it. If you want, tweet me and I’ll give you some contacts from my old colleagues. Maybe they can help you.
