Incoming 1Ls / Re: The Most Lawyerly Beverage

While he his Supreme Court nomination was scuttled by the U. S. Senate, no thinking person can fail to be impressed with the power of Judge Robert Bork's intellect.  Here is the definitive article on lawyerly libations:

Having said what I just said about Judge Bork, I will admit that I prefer olives to a lemon twist. 

Aside from my preference for olives, I believe that this article puts to rest all debate on the most lawyerly beverage.

 :D

Nice find!

Vista really seems pretty screwy on mine.  For one thing, it takes FOREVER to start up.  Then sometimes it will just do crap in the background that slows everything down.

I'd recommend going with XP.

If I were to get XP, could I set it up so that I could load from either OS?  Keep in mind I really don't know sh*t about PCs, as I have always been a Mac user.

yah.

This might help:

Perfect, thanks.  Now I just need to get my hands on XP.

Do you reckon a firm wouldn't hire you because you are not a hopeless drunk?

Can you get XP on the cheap through your school?

I don't know.  My guess is probably not, they aren't very good about that sort of thing.  I think I can actually get it cheap through my workplace though.

I'm not sure a dude can pull off having an iPhone in public.  Blackberries are at least business-like, but an iPhone just screams "I have doubts about my sexuality."

I got my T61 yesterday evening and it is freakin' sweet.

Sweet enough that I've decided not to return it out of spite.   ;D

The only thing is that I wish I had gotten XP instead of Vista.  Vista doesn't seem that much better or more advanced (though I've only just started playing around with it), and you can't get any games for Vista.  I'm not a big-time gamer, but I would like to play me some Civ IV.

Tier 2, though you could probably land a sweet scholarship at a Tier 3 if you wanted to go that route.

With those numbers, you should probably target the bottom half of the Top 20.

They run a skeleton crew for a few hours every Saturday in case people need us. There's a rotation and you have to work every 13th Saturday or something like that.

Ah.  I just log in if something is needed from me.  I'm tethered via BlackBerry 24/7 anyway.


Wow, you have a Blackberry?!  You must be important!
