My neighbor did that and now he doesn't have any maintenance issues but he is broke.

So now you can help him with financial planning. You know... since he spent the extra $299 on a MacBook instead of a $700 Dell craptop.

Better than cleaning his registry, running spybot, installing antivirus and reinstalling his windows drivers.

How I spent the last 10 minutes.


Just installed and bought a book. Heading to the bathroom now.


Success! It works like a charm.

(You dont need to buy a kindle)

Reader is decent. Font size is nice. Bookmark feature works. Option to choose the font you like.

You have to buy books from web browser at But it will automatically send it to your iphone kindle app.

Next update (free) may include searching/buying directly from kindle app. But really what is the point? You probably want to use to search and browse for new books anyway.

Also the book I purchased is pretty good. A couple "duh" things and a few "doh! Why didn't I think of that" things.

"incidentally, you may be unaware of the distinction made in the UK between pants and trousers, i.e. that pants are what one wears under trousers."

So what the hell are under-pants in the UK then? Do they go under your pants?

You guys wear 3 layers of pant?

Do you wear a pair of pants or more? So confusing.

All I know is if you wear pants under your trousers and that's all... well then you aren't wearing underwear and that's nasty.

"I have personally visited the fields where they doing all this. The term "waste pit" is misleading. A lot of stuff was stuffed in 55gal drums and buried in rows underground just because they didnt know what to do with it."

You should visit my office. Sounds like the legacy code I maintain these days.
