I'm probably going to get one of these (fully loaded...$120k for law school, not gonna skimp on supplies):
Dell Latitude D620

I'd like to toss out the suggestion that it is worth getting a "business class" laptop. I want a laptop that is made well and will withstand daily use bouncing around in my bookbag. One essential feature I'm looking for is hard drive protection. I've personally witnessed what happens when a running laptop is dropped and the hard drive dies completely. I don't know about ya'll, but I want to protect my class notes, briefs, etc.
Good idea. In fact, I have a mirrored (RAID) network attached storage device I use currently. Of course, there's still the downtime if you drop your laptop and have to have it fixed.
To be completely safe, you must do this:
1) Set up Oracle Database to store your school works.
2) Set up another Oracle Database in another part of the world as secondary server.
3) Set up 1 min log shipping and 10 minute reload between the two servers. (every 1 minute, your laptop will ship encrypted log file over to the secondary server located in Some Country, Pleanet Earth, and every 10 minute, this secondary server will update itself with new log files)
4) Set up automatic fail-over to the secondary server, such that when the first server gets destroyed, the 2nd one automatically picks up, and you can continue to work.
This way, your files can be wiped out only if the Terrorists are able to locate all servers (in this case, 2 servers) and destroy them all.
Where the f are all the people? Prolly goes back to that suburb thing but u never see people just walking in LA. The streets are so damn empty. Yeah, there are certain areas that draw a lot of people, Melrose n Hollywood etc, but for the most part u barely see people just walkin on the streets. I love love love to see people out walkin, otherwise the place just feels so damn empty, and cars don't count- speakin of which...
It's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something.
First, LA is one of the worst major cities in america. NYC, SF, Chi, DC, Boston, Seattle, SD are all vastly superior. However,
there are some great areas of teh metro area. Pretty much all of West LA and the beach communities are great places to live in with moderate weather, minimal smog, and great places to walk around. I'm also partial to Pasadena, though its a little further out of the way.
If you move east of down, or into the inland empire, god have mercy on your soul.
