So I’ve been busy moving into a new apartment, and setting stuff up. I just purchased the Samsung LN46A550, after searching the reviews on Amazon. It is easily the best television I have ever owned, and I’ve only had it a few days.
This presidential election may be a decisive one in American culture and history as a whole. With gas prices rising, the economy weakening, and international relations “on the fence”, who should we vote for?
Regrowing body parts has always been a thing of the imagination. In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban the nurse, Madame Pomphrey, uses a potion to regrow all the bones in Harry’s arm.

UPDATE 11/24/2008- Parallels Desktop 4 Review here.
I have been using computers since Windows 3.1, where icons were the big addition to the operating system. Always in school we used apple computers.
Last year, my dell laptop had been acting funny. I finally caved and bought a macbook precisely one year ago. It’s cool, a lot smaller (I couldn’t afford the larger models, even as a student)
The tragic flaw was, for some of the homework I needed to do, I needed windows. I would have to switch back and forth between laptops, or go use the windows computers in the library. This was always a pain.
