Incoming 1Ls / Re: sony vaio s-series laptop sale
« on: March 22, 2005, 09:58:08 AM » link; special ends at 5:30pm today

i know a few of you guys have been promoting this series of sony laptop, and figured maybe a few of you would be interested.

Processor: Intel Pentium M 725 1.60GHz
Hard Drive: 40 GB
Display: 13.3"WXGA TFT Color LCD 1280 x 800
OS: Windows XP Home
RAM: 256MB DDR333 SDRAM (expandable to 1GB max)
Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 32MB
Optical Drive: CD-RW/DVD Combo Drive
Communication: 56K Modem, 10/100 LAN, Wireless 802.11b/g
Ports: VGA, 2 x USB2.0, 1394, PC Card slot, Memory stick pro support, Audio, port replicator
Average Battery Life: 2~6.5 hours
Weight: 4.2lbs
Price: $1289

That is a killer laptop and the brand and style I am going to get when I get one for  law school. The deal is pretty good also. Check out the s360 series on also. The xbrite screen is amazing. I intend to get the version with 512 megs of RAM, the GeForce 6200 (or ATI 9700 card), and the Sonoma chipset (the model is the s360). Keep in mind however that *this* model notebook only has 256 MB of RAM and a 32 MB video card. 

For some that is adequate, but those hardware specifications are becoming more and more distant as notebooks with 512 MB of RAM and 128 MB of video RAM become the norm. If you purchase a notebook with the specifications mentioned above, it might not be able to adequately handle the next edition of Windows when it comes out in 2006.

I live near the Arboretum :)
Which apartment complex :) hehehee

Ever been to the Gables at Bluffstone?  It overlooks Bull Creek. Nice view (not as nice as the treetops however)

interesting...  we're all on the north side. 

i'm not in pflugerville, per se, but it's just easier to say so.  i'm on 35 and grand avenue parkway, 2 exits north of all of you.  but i shop at the HEB and wal-mart on 35 and parmer.

Count another one on the North side. I live right next to the Arboretum and work at a video game company on 360 next to 2222. Nice area! I will miss it.

I find it ironic that a school with such a restrictive set of rules calls themselves 'Liberty' University. I think one of the scariest parts of the rules is that associating with people consuming alcohol is as big a disciplinary infraction as racial harassment.

18 Reprimands + $250 Fine 
+ 18 hours Disciplinary Community Service

Association with those consuming alcohol
Commission of a misdemeanor
Entering a residence hall apartment or quad of the opposite sex or allowing the same
Entering bedroom of the opposite sex on/off campus or allowing the same
Failure to properly identify oneself
Falsification of information on an official document
Racial harassment
Sexual harassment (i.e., unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors or other conduct or comments of a sexual nature)
Sexual misconduct and/or any state of undress
Threat to do bodily harm
Vandalism (plus financial restitution)

Regent University in Virginia! They darkened my mailbox, unsolicited of course, with some of their sectarian fundamentalist trash one day--oh what a joy it was to be invited to join their law school/cult and help them undermine the foundation of secular democratic government...

It would be tough to choose between Regent and 'Liberty' University in Virginia. Their chancellor is the ever popular Jerry Falwell. They have a dress code, and a strict disciplinary code (no sleeping in motels with members of the opposite sex). Check out the law school.

am i the only one that thinks it's weird to see Texas in the rose bowl?

I mean if the tradition has any meaning, and college football is all about traditions, the rose bowl should always be the best of pac 10 vs the best of big 10.

The tradition has been out the door for several years now. OU won the 2002 Rose Bowl against Washington State U. The Rose Bowl's Big 10/Pac 10 exclusivity is not binding in the age of the BCS.

What did you think of your coach groveling to the BCS to get a bid?

Groveling in order to get the BCS bid? I think not. Keep in mind during the poll which followed Mack Brown's groveling after the A&M game Texas lost several votes in the polls while Cal gained several votes. It was not until after Cal's lackluster performance the following week against a mediocre Conference USA team that Texas made up the difference in the polls and also the BCS.

I'd ask the better question, what did you think of Cal's piss poor performance against an at best mediocre Southern Miss to LOSE them a Rose Bowl bid?

Could someone send me the June/October 04 test also? I would greatly greatly appreciate it. My email address is

Thank you!! (ahead of time)

I am a night owl myself. I can't function right away after I wake up. So to get around that I plan on being awake for 3 hours by the time I start taking the test. In order to prepare and get accustomed to that (because I haven't done that for 10 years), the week of Thanksgiving, I am waking up on Wednesday and the Saturday before the test at 6 AM to get accustomed to waking up that early. Additionally I am going to take one LR section before I go take the LSAT to wake my brain up and put me in the mode to think logically and warmed up. I am having a simple breakfast, a muffin and an OJ (maybe a red bull) and am driving to the UTC at the University of Texas at 7:30. I'll get there by 8. I'll have time to relax. I'll be there for sign in at 8:30 and there to take the test at 9 with three hours of being awake to start.
