well, I finally did get my eeepc 901. Newegg and other vendors were
beginning to ship and AMazon still hadn't admitted to knowing when they
would have them, so I canceled the Amazon order and got mine from Newegg.

I have to admit I've not yet tried the domcox repository, I just installed
the BibleDesktop Java version and it ran fine upon first try. (now that I've
exited it, I need to go dig around and find out where it got installed so
I can see if I can fake up a launcher for it. it isn't in any OBVIOUS
place where I've looked so far, but I'm sure I'll find it.)

When/if I get a chance to try Domcox's stuff I'll let you all know, but
for the moment I'm probably going to put that off for a while til I can
deal with some other issues.
