    That is a very good question. As of 5 minutes ago, his new race car (!) is parked in the space and his other car is gone. We'll see how long it is until he tries the same stunt again.

    Thanks for the offer to kick some shin! I'm still reserving the right to take you up on it!

    What say you, DinK? Should we go with software or a specialist?
    Thanks,

    I went the software (TurboTax) route. It wasn't horrible, but there were a couple of things that were a smidge confusing. The Federal taxes were easy; it was filing returns for two states that was tricky. I think (hope) I figured it out, though.

    Should I go to the game watch tomorrow or stay home and eat pepperoni?
    I vote for stay home and eat pepperoni. I am doing my part by not watching the game until about an hour after it starts. The joys of the DVR! This formula has proven successful in the last several games, so I'm sticking with it. The only potential wrinkle in the works is the frakkin' MO Valley Tournament Championship game that immediately precedes The Big Game on CBS. Duke-UNC will likely be joined in progress here.

    If you really need some help with pesky neighbors, I can send my pest control team. Grant acts tough, but if you really need some muscle Kelly is always up to the task.

    Thanks, YMo! I suddenly had visions of a SNL skit a la Toonces the Driving Cat, starring your felines. They would certainly be a lot more subtle than I would on the execution of Devildeac's suggestion.

    They learned how to drive by watching Toonces clips on YouTube...

    And why the Asus 1000-He? Faster processor from Intel as well as faster bus speed. Did I mention it comes in a dark blue?
    Ooh, it's cute! But it's got a TINY screen (only 1024x600?) does that bother you, or do you have to horizontal scroll on web pages a lot?

Mine's gray, though. Dark Blue would be better. OS is Vista. I was quite nervous after all the bad stuff I've heard, but I haven't had any problems at all. I, too, can now chat from the comfort of the recliner in my living room.
    Hard core - sounds like a nice machine that should last you a long time.

    Thanks, DA! I like it. So far it's proven to be well worth the price (under $800!!! ). Hopefully the screen won't burn out any time soon...

    I gladly sacrifice screen space for lightweight(and low price). But, the bast sites so far have fit in the screen without any scrolling issues.

    My Acer Aspire One has a 8.9" screen, but the display is beautiful and is more than adequate for most applications on the web. At only $299 now for the three cell battery model (and $369 for the 6 cell battery model), it's tough to beat it. And of course it comes in Duke Blue (as well as several other inferior colors).
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    It's not so much the screen size, but the low resolution that I would struggle with. But then, my laptop monitor is 12" and 1440x900, and I wish the resolution were even greater.

    Happy Daylight Saving Time day, everyone! I love this day. I will gladly give up one hour of sleep, to leave work during daylight again. It'll be light out here until after 7PM tomorrow, woot!

    I, too, am excited about having more daylight after I leave work for the day. There's only one problem: I'll be leaving for work in the dark.

    Part of the issue goes to use. I'm only using this for limited tasks so while more resolution would be nice, it isn't all that needed. This definitely isn't a desktop replacement. What it will allow me to do is turn off my main PC for extended periods of time.

    Uh, I've already reported this to the admins., but the link to Throatybeard's HPR isn't working. Seems as though Duke took it off their server.

    Sigh. I needed to point an uninformed person toward the definition of 9F this morning.
