I finally got a pair of headphones to work with my laptop! :D It's a Sennheiser HD437. Sennheiser makes some of the best headphones in the world. This model is pretty crappy though, but at least it works with my stupid laptop! The next model in the line-up costs over $100 :(
A funny thing happened as well. At the Square One bus terminal, I was faced with the choice of waiting 15 minutes for the bus home, or walking home (which also takes over 20 minutes). I decided to walk home, and about 15 minutes later, the bus overtakes me. Then, after another 5 minutes or so, I see the bus stopped dead on the side of the road, F.O.R.D. style. So, I then overtake the bus! I felt like waving to the people on the bus, but... I thought the better of it :P
Mississauga Transit should seriously upgrade their some of their buses and make them come more frequently. I heard Vancouver has a convenient and reliable bus-based system (maybe because they have no subway system) with buses coming in 5 to 10-minute intervals. Still, the 30-minute waits in Mississauga don't compare with Richmond Hill's: today, I saw their schedule for route 85, and it had 1-hour intervals. What if you just missed the bus in the middle of January? Yikes!
