12/6/2010 11:53:59 AM After my HP died I decided to treat laptops as basically disposable items.  Not meaning I'd throw away one that's working fine, but meaning I don't expect to get much more than 2-3 years out of them because it will break, become obsolete, or whatever.  I got a Lenovo IdeaPad for $240 from TigerDirect (it retailed for around $400 but was a returned open box item, which lowered the price to $240) and I absolutely love it.  It's small and light, it holds a charge for longer than I'd expect, it only has 512MB of RAM but it moves plenty fast and doesn't have a ton of additional programs and stuff that slow down other computers and that I never use, I was worried about the small keyboard but I found it surprisingly easy to get used to.  It's definitely not for everyone, it's just a little netbook, so if you like gaming or something it won't do the job, but for me it's been great.
12/2/2010 9:53:00 AM Great news for some of us...  I've been following the class action lawsuit on the NVIDIA chip issue.  There is a lot of information on the class action website: http://nvidiasettlement.com/index.html  On the website you can also find a list of laptops covered by the settlement, in addition to a lot of HP laptops there are some Dell and MacBooks.  The settlement is not final yet, there is one more hearing scheduled for December 20, and if the Court approves the settlement terms on Dec. 20 the claims period will start.  Anyone potentially involved should have gotten a postcard in the mail recently, but if you didn't get one that doesn't necessarily mean that your laptop is not included.  The notice says, "Class Members who file an approved claim will be entitled to: (1) Replacement of the NVIDIA graphics processing unit or media and communication processor if you purchased a version of certain models of notebook computers manufactured by Dell or Apple containing one of the NVIDIA chips; or (2) A replacement notebook computer similar in kind and value if you purchased a version of certain models of the notebook computers manufactured by HP containing one of the NVIDIA chips; or (3) Reimbursement of amounts paid for repairs related to problems with the NVIDIA chips." The third option kind of worries me, it looks like a catch-all and I don't know who decides which option you'd get.  I do fall in the class of people who bought an HP during a certain time frame entitled to a replacement under the second option, I'm worried I might get bumped into the third option.  But hey, something is better than nothing!
12/1/2010 2:51:34 PM I started wearing a helmet for warmth, but over the years I've definitely had some falls where the helmet kept me from a head injury.  I never ride without one.

12/3/2009 8:04:01 AM Any chance it'll keep strength and hit Colorado?
12/3/2009 8:00:00 AM Ha ha! I wasn't sure if he was kidding around or not since the top three really do look like signing.  I think I like ezza444's translation the best!
12/1/2009 3:17:54 PM Yeah, top three say "you know me," bottom three, I have no clue.  My brother is deaf, I'll send it to him...
