Law School Applications / Computer problem - any techies?
« on: October 18, 2004, 01:58:04 AM »
I just did a major upgrade/update to windows XP Home edition, it was one of those automatic things that pops up from time to time.  I didn't know it was going to be that major.  thanks Windows  >:(  The problem is the "text" in Word, Here, any browser, email, etc, is like in draft form from a printer.  It's like I'm only using 256K color.  I checked my settings, I am using 1024 X 768 (whatever the last number is supposed to be is what i am using), even raised 16 bit to 32 bit.  My graphics are fine, it's just the text, in any application.  Any ideears?  Thanks....Oh and do I need a firewall?  I'm not connected to any network, and nobody uses this computer but me?  I wonder if I do need it, and if it speeds up things if I disable it.  Thanks again...

Based soley on their posts, numbers, whatever, name your pick and why.
I vote for me because I am already famous, thus, halfway there.   ;D

No Poll to be fair to all.

Halfway through the test, a student had a grand mal seizure, (it was bad, loud too) everybody stopped, wanted to help.  She was unconscience
for at least 5 minutes but breathing, she had swallowed her tongue, thus, the noise trying to get air.  Scared the hell out of me and help put things in perspective.  I am worried to death over a stupid test, yet this person could have died.  Really made me think, and taught me a lesson about nerves for the next test.  A test is not do or die literally.  I'm still a bit shaken.

What will the professor do?  What would you do?  What do think she SHOULD do?  This class is one midterm, and one final, I looked at the written part, worth half my grade, and would have nailed that part.  Have any of you been a situation like this?  She just said turn in your test, we will worry about it next week.  (once a week class).  I really don't want to study for another test, I spent the whole weekend and all day today
to ace this sucker.  I don't see a fair way to deal with this.  If she just grades us on what we finished, I would not be fairly graded, because the MC are hard.  I would have received all credit for the writing part nobody got to.  What would you expect the Prof to do.  I know this is rare, but I'm sure it has happened to at least one of you or maybe not. 

Yikes, I'm still shaky from the vision of the girl in convulsions  :(

Law School Applications / In need of a guinea pig for a good cause
« on: October 08, 2004, 11:29:13 PM »
A bit of fortune has come my way today.  I have been asked if
I want to teach a course called “small business essentials,” at the junior college and the pay is good, but I’m not sure if I can do it.  Does anyone want to volunteer
as my guinea pig?  It won’t take more than 15 minutes a day.  I am basically
going to teach Balance Sheet, Financial Statements, plus those ever confusing
debits and credits.  I just want to see if I can teach somebody this before I take
the job.  If you are interested, please do not have any business background, and
especially an accounting background.  A liberal arts, history, or English major
would be the ideal guinea pig.  Hey, you might just learn something for free!
TIA

Swifty

P.S.  This is really important to me, if that matters  ;)

The first thing I saw was, "this site is updated frequently"  Need I read further?
This is a joke(literally), you need to draw an inference, or maybe a deduction.   ;D

Studying for the LSAT / Favorite logic games as a kid...
« on: October 06, 2004, 07:09:50 PM »
I hear quite a lot that if someone has played logic games as kid, basically just for fun, that they really do help your performance on the LG section of the LSAT.  Anybody care to share what would be some good games to play around with, just for fun of course, no time  restraints, you know, the way you did them, for fun.  I played a lot of Battleship, you now "A6"  "miss".  Not much logic in that I don't think.  Thus my inclimation to guess at questions.   8)

Law School Applications / Reminder - DEFRAG YOUR HD
« on: October 05, 2004, 03:29:06 AM »
Man,
I've been meaning to do this for so long my laptop's hard drive was spinning so fast
I was getting sexually aroused by the vibration!  I can't emphasize this enough, especially for those of you who constantly download and delete movies.  My computer is screaming fast
now just from a basic defrag that I've been too lazy to do.  HTH

Law School Applications / DOWNY, You've Been Challenged!
« on: October 04, 2004, 07:46:23 PM »
A certain lady frind of mine really liked your fireworks story while on shrooms.

She has proposed the following question to me:

I really like the way he writes, but I doubt he would be as funny if he didn't use any profanity.  That, my friend sounds like an insult, one that should be addressed by re-writing the story with no profranity.  Is DOWNY up to the task?  SWIFTY is unsure as well.

Law School Applications / Anybody want to write a brief for me?
« on: October 04, 2004, 01:17:38 AM »
I'm having too much fun.  You should try it.

Pepsico, Inc. v. Redman 54 F3d 1262, (1995)

She uses FIRAC instead of IRAC.

F = list all the facts of the case.  Enjoy. 
It's fun, and good practice.   ;D
