Heh. I'm using my mac mini (to type this comment) with a "Windows" keyboard and mouse. Which many people to find more functional than the apple thin, no spaces stuff. Then again, apple keyboard functional is quite lacking.

I've been logging in lately, posting JEs and commenting (read:fishing), just because.

And now i have mod points. That's just weird. I don't care. No, that's not right. I shouldn't care, but i do. :(

I'm tempted to get an ipad (after i get a job and have the money to purchase it), but every time i pick up one of these pad devices, i find myself at a loss for how to use it. It's like it's the exact opposite of a functional device, instead being flashy and smooth, and whatever.

So why do i want an ipad? Well, it's a nice computer to run those nifty apps, and is more convenient than a laptop.

Wait, wait, i'm rambling again.

Despite the craving among many parents for more sleep in their offspring (and, by extension, themselves), the purpose that sleep serves in young kids remains something of a mystery—especially when it comes to daytime naps. Do they help children retain information, as overnight sleep has been found to do in adults? A new study provides the first evidence that daytime sleep is in fact critical for effective learning in young children.
