I have got to get me one of these.

I was searching for quad core on Amazon.com. I noticed that there were (5) desktops and (1) notebook. Actually, I think it was more like 2 desktops in reality... the others were processors.

I clicked on the quad-core notebook result. Not a notebook... 70 lbs. I believe it also sells for more like $2400, anyway.

Somewhat haphazard technical specs...

  • 2(two) Quad Core Xeon Intel Xeom X5355 2.66 Ghz (xeom... that's a new one on me. I wonder if the misspelling is intentional)
  • BOOT 160gb sata hd, 10k rpm with 16 mb databurst cache
  • 160gb sata hd, 2(two)500 sata hd, FD,
  • 16 GB ddr2 sdram(8 DIMMS), 48X/32X CDRW/DVD
  • Sound blaster X-Fi, 256 MB PCIe nVidia quadro FX3450. DUAL DVI

Favorite Crystal Light Flavor Ever

I know that people either love the White Tea Blueberry Crystal Light (TM) or they hate it... I generally don't like the fruit flavored Crystal Light (TM) or Sugar-Free Kool-Aid (TM) because they have too much fruit flavor and the aspartame flavor really seems to accompany that fruit flavoring. The white tea and blueberry are just strong enough to balance with the artificial sweetener in this case. Strangely enough, this flavor for some reason reminds me of RealLemon(TM) and Lipton(TM) Tea that I used to brew and add a 1/4 cup of sugar to.

Romancing the Clock

"Accentuate the positives and reduce the negatives in your life." Reduce stress. Put things in perspective. Hire someone to mow the grass if you don't like doing it. Don't fight battles that cost you the war.

Some points of this book seemed a little bit excessive if taken literally, but I think the book as a whole is more of a self-help book for examining how you are spending your time. Sometimes the "accentuate the positives" and "reduct the negatives" is over-simplistic, but the stark examples help drive home a point as well. Since I enjoy having perspective shaken up once in a while, I enjoyed this book. If you're not both open-minded and willing to take advice with a grain of salt, this book may not be a good fit for you.

Super Pac Man TV Game

If you're a Pac-Man fan, this handy piece of nostalgia will interest you. Pac-Man, Pac-Man Plus, Super Pac-Man, and Pac & Pal. I had always enjoyed playing Super Pac-Man and Pac-Man and had read about the other two games. Pac-Man Plus is an almost frustratingly difficult version of of Pac-Man. I've never had a problem breezing through levels on Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Junior, and Super... but Pac-Man Plus throws a wrench in my usual strategies. Pac & Pal is almost more pure puzzle game than its siblings. All will provide a quick diversion or hours of entertainment for you.
