Help put jkOnTheRun on the map

Yeah, I bought a powerbook and have adapted to the mac way of working, it’s very reliable and comfortable to use for long periods, it has become my main machine. I’ve got an up-to-date VAIO on XP but I seem to use it less and less.

I’ve got an autoscript banging away at the nomination server for you!!! Just kidding…I can only vote for you once & I just did!



Thanks Bob! Actually only the top 10 sites nominated get to participate in the voting phase. I agree with the email requirement. I keep a real “throwdown” address I use with stuff like this.


Tried to nominate you also. Wasn’t willing to give the personal info (like work email), but it seemed to go thru with a bogus email address (sorry@dontWantToShareIt.dom).

I think you only need a nomination, though. The voting begins Nov 1. Good luck, and great blog!


Wow, thanks you guys! To be honest I just did this as a joke but it’s absolutely great to hear feedback like this! Thanks so much. :)

I just did mine. Everyone reviews new gdagets, but not a lot of people follows up like you did with the U70. The integration into your work routine by means of software, hardware ( including bags) and things needed to make this particular device useful.

Keep the great work
