Fun

One thing I've witnessed in lawschool is the degradation of brand new laptops over the course of three years. Mine finally died last year and while I could replace the motherboard and be OK Best Buy fucked it over so bad (and then blamed me for it) that I doubt the problems would end with a new MoBo. Some of the 3L's are clinging to their practially obsolete Dells and Compaqs like it's their last link to law school. The man known as lunchbox when he randomly comments here props his screen up with his water bottle. I don't know if that'll help him in his duck races later this year but I really needed to say "duck races."

My class was the class that finally made laptops the rule rather than the exception demanding to be allowed to type our exams on our pet computers rather than write them. Last semester some professors actually required the exam to be typed on a computer (if you don't have a working laptop you get to use one of the library desktop machines). I guess the reading ease finally won them over. Of course, with typing comes word limits and I didn't take an exam last fall that didn't have a word limit. I also never came close to any of the word limits.

Oh, and why did I title this entry "Fun?" If you have a working laptop and are sitting through a class you signed up for because it was easy and are becoming excruciatingly bored this game with lasers and mirrors and stuff is really fun but still requires much more thought than Zuma, Snood and the like. I'll continue to entertain myself with the Sudoku and NY Times crossword.
