Step One: Admitting you have a problem. Okay, I am a geek. Are you happy now? But, I am a reformed, eco-friendly green geek, so I suppose I am doing all right. I always try to stay up to date with the latest technologies, and tiny portable computers using solar power is right up my alley. Being that I also love riding my bicycle, it is with great interest that I am following the progress of Steve Paine from Bonn, Germany.
"Solar-UMPC.com is a blog covering the topic of powering ultra-mobile and ultra-efficient personal computers through solar and natural energy sources. Follow the blog to find out about related topics and my Solar UMPC tour which I have planned. I'll be taking a UMPC, a solar panel and a bike to south Germany and cycling down the Rhein for 7 days blogging and working only using the power of the sun! "
This is a trip that sounds absolutely awesome! I am totally jealous, I must say. So, I'll just have to enviously keep following Steve's progress as he pedals his way down the river. Fortunately, the technology that he is taking with him is allowing the rest of us to come along for the ride.
