I'm interested in this "Notepad" editor.

Hmm... Do you have a link to the source?

Can't post anything intelligent about the article, (MCP seems to have locked me out), so I'll say something about the movie: I mostly loved it, but it needed more TRON. He should have been a much more important character. Users' sake, his name is half of the movie title!

If she's a resident of AZ and she drives then she should get an AZ DL. It's not hard to do, and not expensive ($25 max).

If she doesn't want to do that, she can get can get an ID card for only $12 that also satisfies the requirements of SB1070.

Here's fee info from the AZ DMV site, look at FAQs 4 and 5.

Hmm, yes I'm SURE AZ has the authority to make federal election laws

There are no 'federal' elections. All elections for federal offices are state elections, run by the states.

The U.S. Constitution requires that the President be a natural born citizen. The state is within its rights to require a candidate for President to provide proof of 'natural born citizen' status before placing that candidate on the ballot.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
