It's still in the polishing stage. It'll be going out this weekend to a few people who've said "hey, send me your resume" (OG, I'm looking at you ). And by polishing, I mean it's a ****ing shambles at the moment and I'll be working on it more tomorrow and Sunday. I have a rocking template (thanks Whammer).
Make it hap'n, cap'n. Good luck buddy.

It's been wonderful for VMing, and the battery life is so much better than what I had before. I am a fan.
Wonderful timing for Microsoft to release the Office 2013 preview, too. It's pretty nice!
Nice. I have a C840 laptop at home. It was free. 0.75 gb of ram, 1.2 Ghz processor.
Because I'm too lazy to go back and quote ppl.
RE: The West Wing
Love, love, love, love that show. Rewatched it a couple years ago and still loved it. It was probably the first show that was mandatory viewing for me every week (back in the days before DVR and on-demand...when if you wanted to watch it later you had to use this thing called the VCR and have this thing called a VHS tape for you young'uns), and I almost became a poly sci major in undergrad because of it--though I'm still fascinated by the inner workings of politics and how the system is designed, how it works, etc.

RE: Absolutely nothing anyone said by my funny contribution to this thread
Co-worker this afternoon tried to tell me that carb-loading doesn't do anything, and increased glycogen storage is a myth.
It's a good thing that he knows better than 50+ years of science on the subject.
Welllllll, science isn't always right. Remember how they used to teach in schools how eating breakfast was key to losing weight, because it boosted your metabolism? Yeah, that was a load of rubbish. Technically eating food of any kind at any time "boosts" your metabolism, does that mean you should always eat to lose weight? Of course not.
I'm not saying I don't agree with carb-loading, but things can be "proved" in a study, preached as being "science" and then later be found to be false.
Personally, I think carbo-loading needlessly complicates an otherwise simple process. If you want to lose weight, take your recommend daily caloric intake, consume 500 less than that. Simple and effective.
Well, we were talking about carb loading in the context of athletic endurance.
The idea is to maximize the amount of glycogen stored in the body tissues to provide as much fuel as possible for long periods of athletic activity. The science behind that is pretty well established and researched.
