Farewell, Unemployment

Obviously I have been neglecting WoPSR.net for a while. My unemployment following admission to the bar is entirely to blame for that. It's not that I had nothing to say during that time. I just had nothing interesting to say that couldn't be said in 140 or fewer characters. That shall change now very soon.

For I, the Unemployed Attorney, have obtained a position!

I can't share any details about it yet; at least

Eee! And also Reader!

I have jumped on the weensy netbook bandwagon and purchased an ASUS Eee PC 901. It is teensy and black and is running a spare XP license I had left over from when I upgraded my now massive by comparison laptop to Vista. It is wonderful!

Tailor is going to make the suit just

Super Happy Capitalist Winter Extravaganza is near at hand!

Most of you know this holiday by its much less cumbersome and more familiar name, Christmas. But let's face it: Christmas is about buying stuff for people you like and getting stuff from them, in a fantastic orgy of sales and decorations, smothered in a gooey outpouring of happy delicious good will. Hooray, Capitalism!

Introducing the Excitement! Category

Since the beginning of the semester, the University has received a fairly consistent (and consistently bogus, but nonetheless consistently disruptive) stream of bomb threats.  One day, one building.   The next, another.  It was almost like some lazy and mischievous undergraduate, displeased with the crepuscular hour of his first class of the day, decided to send a little email.  A new one for each building for each day of the week.  They were always resolved without
