Boris, sulla ei ole aavistustakaan kuinka kateellinen mä olen! Nämä sakut ei ymmärrä saunasta mitään, mulla on porttikielto muutamaan lähistön yleiseen saunaan erilaisista syistä, kuten esimerkiksi veden heittämisestä kiukaalle ja termostaatin kääntäminen sen asetettuun maksimiin 65°C koska kuulemma kiukaat vahingoittuvat jos ne lämmitetään liian kuumaksi eli vaaransin yleisen turvallisuuden ja niin edelleen.

Mä antaisin paikkani taivaassa kunnon saunasta, parista Koffin kolmosesta ja kiukaalla kuumennetusta HK:n Sinisestä Auran väkevän sinapin kanssa!

Boris, you've got no idea how jealous I am! These Germans do not understand anything about the sauna, I have been banned from a few nearby public saunas for various reasons, such as throwing water on the stones or turning the thermostat without permission to max it could go, 65°C(*) because reportedly sauna ovens could be damaged when they are heated too hot thus I had risked the public safety, and so on.

I'd give my place in heaven for a few hours of decent sauna, a couple of Koff's lager and HK Blue sausages heated on sauna oven stones with Aura's extra strong mustard!


(*) = 65°C is about 150°F, a real sauna must of course be around 100°C or 210 °F. Tho whole idea of sauna is to get steam by throwing water to hot stones.
Kari, well first off you can from now on keep to this language, I am part of the swedish speaking community in Finland hence why my Finnish ain't that good. Oh my the Germans do sound weird, I mean for me the sauna exactly like you said is a place where you relax in this like freakishly hot environment, and yeah normally you would also drink Karhu or Lapin Kulta but since I have school tomorrow I wouldn't want to end up a little drunkish there..

I haven't fully made up my mind on that yet but there are some really powerful laptops out there.

I haven't looked into laptops for some time mine is no prize but is great for on the move/ field...
Price wise I believe you'd get more bang for your bucks with a desktop,
Laptop's with power usually cost more
Desktop are expandable or easier to upgrade but do take up a larger foot print obviously.

Yes but when you add in a decent monitor and keyboard the difference is not so great. The main reason is that I don't have anywhere to put a desktop ATM.

I replaced my desktop with a laptop I can pick up and carry with me when I travel, but when I am home in Calif I plug it into the same monitor, keyboard and mouse I used for my desktop. Still haven't found a need for dual monitors so I only display onto the 24" Acer.

I've been asked lately by several friends and family whether they should get a touchscreen. About the best reason I can say I dont' is that I don't want fingerprints or gesturing done on a desktop monitor, this is more of a psychic interruption than going from keyboard to mouse and less convenient. What say you?

Yep that would be the larger foot print a desktop would need
Most desktop come with all of those goodies,
I paid roughly the same for my desktop and laptop but the desktop would run circles around it both were roughly 6-700us

Heh, mitt modersmål är också svenska.

Living my ex-pat life I enjoy the opportunity to use both of my mother tongues Finnish and Swedish whenever possible in my first reply to a fellow Finn, or a Swede. I miss Finland and both languages and have usually no possibilities to use any of them in my daily life.

I am fully bilingual, officially also Swedish speaking like you as per information at National Population Registration Centre of Finland (Befolkningsregistercentralen) will tell. Why I posted something in Finnish instead of Swedish is that as you know, the majority of our bilingual country are Finnish speakers so it's usually a safe bet .

I don't like Lapin Kulta. For me, the lager must be Koff or Karhu.

I would guess that a touchscreen would give you backache. It seems a most unnatural position.

Tablets aren't much different than laptops in usage tablets being a bit easier to deal with that messing with a keyboard
The only yucky part of a tablet and touch screens would be finger prints all over the screen which indeed already drives me batty on my cell phone
Light reflection hits a touch screen and it tells it's own tell
