Great Quote
While watching a webinar (web based seminar; why yes, I am a geek!), the presenter used a great quote as an example:


“A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.”

-Ingrid Bergman


As a corollary:
“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”

-Albert Einstein

Interesting Quiz
So, I took the Civics Quiz, by way of a_treitell and adelais. I feel that I did pretty well, but I am sad I missed three of the questions:

You answered 30 out of 33 correctly — 90.91 %

Average score for this quiz during November: 78.1%
Average score: 78.1%

Give it a try, there are some thought provoking questions, but most require you to think back to introductory U.S. history and the Constitution.

Happy Halloween!!!
Ok, perhaps I am too much of a sap, but I'm happy that a bunch of kids have come over this evening trick-or-treating! It reminds me of going out with my Mom, my brother, and friends when I was young.

Final Presidential Debate
It seems to me that the "winner" of tonight's debate is "Joe the Plumber." Although, the whole winning and losing thing in this type of debate is rather silly.

Voter Registration
Ladies and Gentlemen,
This post is to remind everyone to check their voter registration as the deadline in many states for registration is today! Ok, that is a great generalization, but whichever state, territory, or location you are in, it is time to make sure you not only can vote, but that you are registered to vote in your precinct.

An easy way to reach your state's voter registration website is through www.canivote.org a non-partisan site presented by the National Association of Secretaries of State! Go on, check in on your registration status, then encourage your friends, neighbors and relatives to do the same (assuming they are US citizens).

The choice of candidate is your own, but the responsibility to vote is that of all citizens! Make your voice heard in the most significant way possible, cast your vote on Nov. 4th!!

So, I need some advice...
Ladies and Gentlemen, Friends and Companions, Geeks and Nerds,
I am looking for a new laptop, and as is the fashion of the times I turn to LJ to see what this "community" feels of the current laptops and learn if anyone has sage advice regarding best brands.

The specs I am considering are:

  • Dual Core processor with > 1GHz clock speed
  • 1GB or better RAM
  • 15.4" LCD screen
  • NVIDIA or better graphics card
  • 120GB Hard Drive (5400RPM or better)
  • DVD+-R drive
  • OS: Will probably be dual booted with Ubuntu Linux and XP Pro
  • 3 or more USB ports
  • VGA and S-video output
  • integrated SD card reader (optional, but nice)
  • Less than $1000
  • So, what do you all think?
