A fight from RoboGames 2007Related Posts:
Remember when Nintendo said it’d release its release date for the 3DS autostereoscopic portable game system on the 29th of this month? We may already have the magic number — depending on how you interpret a few Japanese words. You see, a supposed video game accessory designer by the handle “nocchisan” recently tweeted that eleven Nintendo 3DS accessories will be released on November 11th, and asked his or her followers to kindly buy them up… while purportedly remarking that the 3DS itself will arrive at the same time. While the tweets in question can certainly be read that way, and it makes a certain amount of sense for accessories to appear at launch, our admittedly limited grasp of Japanese suggests an alternative translation: that it’s the accessories themselves (and not the 3DS) that will all arrive at the same time. There’s also the little matter of nocchisan himself, whose Twitter account has already disappeared — we have nothing actually connecting him to the accessory company except a link in his tweet.

Buying a laptop for school requires us to take into consideration a few simple facts. They are:
- Your laptop will be with you for two to four years.
- You will tote your laptop around like one of Paris Hilton’s hairless dogs.
- Your laptop will get beaten up a bit more than those selfsame dogs.
With these things in mind, we now have to find a laptop that is low-priced yet high in quality. This rules out a number of very cheap models and every expensive, bulky models. In short, students need a laptop that will still look good after two years and will still work after six months. A tall order indeed.
But never fear: I’ve been looking at laptops for almost a decade now and there are a few I’ve seen that particularly catch my eye. These are laptops I’d buy my own kids. Low
ASUS Eee PC 1215N – about $500 – This, the latest in the ASUS Eee line, has Optimus graphics and a high-powered Atom processor. This 3.2-pound notebook is thin enough to slip into a backpack but lacks an optical drive – a minor concern for some students. Yes, it’s a netbook, but ASUS built their recently fortune on netbooks so I’m willing to give this a pass. It’s definitely not for games or video editing, but it will work just fine as a text editing, web surfing, IMing machine. It also has HD video playback on the 12.1-inch screen. [Product Page]
Samsung N150 – About $350 – If you’re a literature major eating Ramen or you want a little notebook to use in class, the N150 is a safe bet. The 10.5-inch laptop runs Windows 7 Starter (you’re probably going to want to upgrade) and it will run most office applications without any problems. Just don’t plan on doing any high-resolution image editing and you’ll be fine. [Product Page]
Middle Dell XPS 16 – $949 – If there’s a laptop line suited for students it’s the Dell’s Studio brand. These small laptops are designed for a few simple purposes – multimedia, video, etc. – but the XPS 16 is the only one designed for (ssssshhhhh) gaming. The 15.6-inch screen displays full HD graphics powered by an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 565v graphics chip. Whether you’re going to be dropping heavy duty science in Chemistry class or dropping rockets in Modern Warfare, this is the laptop for you. [Product Page]
MacBook – $999 – Call us fanbois all you want but a MacBook is the perfect laptop for most students. Thanks to lots of battery life, plenty of power, and compatibility with almost anything you can throw at it, a standard MacBook is fast becoming the de facto notebook on many campuses. While Windows 7 is a great OS, I suspect the average computer user will have very little trouble switching and as long as you maintain regular back ups there is little that you can do to this thing that will fold, mutilate, or spindle your data. [Product Page]
Alienware M11x – $1150 – A few years ago, Alienware laptops were so expensive – and so large – that it was ludicrous to consider them as viable school computers. However, with the advent of cheaper chip technologies and a number of improvements to portability, I’m pleased to report the M11x is a great smaller notebook with lots of staying power. Devin reviewed this laptop in April so check out his comments. This is a “heavy hitter” with lots of processor power but it’s a bit on the heavier side. We’re big fans, but check it out in the store before committing to a purchase. [Product Page]

Snag Oxhorn’s music from iTunes: itunes.apple.com Associate Professor Evil has no use for the key to the city of Orgrimmar, and so he and Barnaby must come up with a new plan to harness great power! This movie placed second in the Action / Adventure category during the Blizzcon 2007 Machinima Contest. Here are the lyrics to the credits song: www.bloggingwithclass.com Here is the movie script: www.bloggingwithclass.com Here is my account of Blizzcon 2007: www.bloggingwithclass.com Note: I have received a bit of confusion concerning my mention of Mark Jacobs in the movie. Some think that when the gold farmer said that Jacobs sucks that I think Jacobs sucks, which is not the case at all. I like Mark Jacobs. I had a gold farmer say that; and Associate Professor Evil slapped him for doing so. I played Dark Age of Camelot for nearly two years and loved every moment of it, so I have great respect for Mark Jacobs and his stance on gold farming. Which is why I had the shout-out in the movie. It is only natural that gold farmers would hate him though, which is why my character said what he did. But he got his just rewards!

Design and donate a goat at iwantagoat.com – Our friend Debbie recently returned from 7 months in India, working with the people in this video. Beau (the Pantless Knight) went to visit her and together they shot this amazing footage. The people in Puki and Nua Kerenga villages had never seen a video camera before, but they understood our goal and were excited to let us help spread their message – THEY WANT GOATS. Why goats? The reason is that goats work. Goats breed and multiply and help the villagers pay for medicine and other important things in times of emergency. They are a valuable source of financial independence for these people, who are very poor and often get taken advantage of by money lenders. The Indian organization where Debbie volunteered (SOVA), has been establishing goateries (real word!) in tribal villages with great success. The results have been empowering for the villagers. We want to help provide more goats for these people. If you like the video, please share it on facebook, twitter, email, etc and consider donating a goat to help one of these amazing families at http Oh, and peep the Jordans on our goats, “White Chocolate”: iwantagoat.com and “G-Pain”: iwantagoat.com – Beau, Peter & David. LYRICS Aw shit, get your travel shots its about to go down. (yea-aah, shortay) Everybody in the herd get to the fuckin village (yea-aah, yeah) But stay on your motherfucking hooves We running this, lets go. I want a goat.

WWII B-17 bomber on display at small Dayton, Ohio area airport. Close up shots of all gunnery positions, engines, and a sweet sweet plane. Support the groups which preserve these machines. As to the many comments saying it WAS built by Boeing, perhaps we have a simple misunderstanding. While the plane was designed by Boeing, I think the one I was lucky enough to crawl around in may have been built by Vega/Douglas, as referenced here: “The “F” was the first B-17 variant to be produced by all of the “BVD” companies (Boeing, Lockheed/Vega, and Douglas). Because of the pressing demand for the Flying Fortress, Boeing provided blueprints and cooperation for the B-17 to be built at the Douglas plant in Long Beach and the Vega plant in Burbank. Altogether, they would turn out 3405 B-17Fs: 2300 by Boeing, 605 by Douglas, and 500 by Lockheed/Vega. The first B-17F flew in May, 1942. ” Thanks for all the great comments on the plane. . .let’s try to keep it respectful with regards to the rest. Clearly there are many atrocities committed by all governments.Related Posts:
