In August 2008 I picked up one of the all-solid-state Acer Aspire One subnotebook computers to be a companion machine with which I could email, surf, and most of all, write. The intent was to promote my aging MacBook Pro to a cushy life at home for CAD, gaming, and music, and tote the smaller and more rugged AOne around with me as a digital notebook. But, in order to make a laptop into a truly mobile tool, one needs the right bag
My most excellent brother Andrew once said "Overbuilt is the Kahrl Way." It is as good a motto as I've ever heard and it was the primary inspiration behind the bag I built for my AOne. (more words here)
Because the flat black and orange remind me of the enormous woodburning contraption my dad built in the basement when I was young, I call this design "The Furnace".
