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.



backup...often

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. 


what if a meteor the size of the moon hits the earth?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Vandy ($$), UTexas or UCLA

i dont know much about vandy, i think ucla and ut are about equal.

i'm sure vandy is pretty close to ut and ucla, so the $$ could help make ur decision.

check the nalp directory and see how many nyc firms recruit at each school

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.

yeah and in NYC when you bump into ppl that either steal your wallet or say something rude.

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.

I hate NYC, Boston, and DC (never been to Seattle or Chicago, although Chicago is too damn cold and windy).  SF and SD are nice cities and I would prefer SD over LA, but LA has better law schools.

Replace Texas in the sweet 16 and elite 8 with UCLA, then I'll be happy

I have mainly been looking around UCLA, but my strategy for searching so far has been to use rent.com and google earth.  There is an option to search around a university, so I do that, see which places appear nice, then put the address in google earth to see how far away they really are and what the surrounding area looks like.  I want to find some promising places, then go to LA and actually visit before I sign a lease.

To avoid traffic, I'm looking for a place that does not require I get on a freeway to get to class.
