I was wondering seeing these on my school's site, and hearing some people talk about them, do people really get these?  Are they worth buying when you start to hand out to friends/aquaintances?

Section 1 here...

I didn't really look at your schedule? How is it? You have Scheckter for Property, right? I've heard good things about him.

Pretty cool if you don't mind waking up late and getting out late, we start at 10-11 but end at 4-5.

I heard good things about Hull and Schechter, no one knows the other 2.

I visited my school bookstore, and even though I don't have my professor yet I know that the property and legal writing book will be th same for all the sections but...they are both new editions that just came out  :-[

My school happens to rotate classes (i.e. some classes are cut to one semester, so one section might have contracts 1st semester, and the other section would have it second semester).

I feel that, on my PC that I built for myself, certain things I spent extra money on (other than the basic processor).  Video card and Sound card for games (which I will do none of, so I'm not thinking about that now.

But one thing I'm super-anal about are the keyboard and mice.  I have a wireless mouse for my laptop, and I love it.  I also got a better keyboard.  I personally am not going to use my laptop too much, and I don't mind the keyboard so much, I really strongly recommend an external mouse though.

honest question:  what's the best way to back up your data?

Well this does depend on what you want to back up. 

I personally don't think anything will kill you except losing your notes/papers.  Those all together even conservatively shouldn't be more than 100 MB or so (and that's very conservative, most documents won't hit 1 MB unless you add pictures etc. to them).

In this case, I would highly recommend a USB drive, these are hard to break unless you run a car over them, people keep them on their keychain and they get banged up all day and never fail.  A 1 GB USB drive should do the trick.

Gmail is another option, although I haven't seen a program that uses it like a harddrive that seems to work well, and filing stuff won't be as easy as filing them in folders on a USB drive.

The external is good if you want to backup the WHOLE system, but #1. I don't think it's necessary and #2. external drives in my experience have been more unreliable than internal harddrives, so I still would back up your important stuff on a USB drive.

Personally, I think I'll backup the important stuff on the USB drive and store it on my desktop, but I have never had a harddrive go bad on me on a desktop, I would almost feel safe just keeping a copy on my desktop, but it's important enough (at least notes/outlines) that backing it up is worth the extra few minutes.

I'm heading to Loyola, area of expertise is way up in the air, I have no idea what I want to do.

I am living in West LA, same place I'm living at now, I also have lived here for a long time, I would recommend checking out Craigslist, and looking around there, they also have a roomate finder on the Loyola Blog website.

I withdrew, one more spot open.
