What Obama can't do is enact major changes to the law and governance of the country--not via executive order. Just remember that Congress won't let him get away with anything, and if he tries to usurp their power he'll get slapped down for it. (Maybe--probably--not in public, but he will get a talking-to.)

WTF is this shit? "Obama Day"? Please tell me these people are kidding. We don't honor sitting Presidents--or any politicians--with their own freaking holiday. That's the kind of thing that communists do.
Give me a break.

Flying car! What an interesting way to accomplish it, too--strap a parasail to a car. Wow.
...this isn't what we had in mind when we said "flying car", guys. Well, it's a start, I suppose. Until we get real gravity control, I suppose it'll have to do. Moller sure as hell isn't getting anywhere....

Well, this fancy foldin' computer is pretty nifty. I've got most of the software on it that I need now, except for Word and a few other things. The keyboard continues to be a pleasure to use--except that I have trouble finding the editing keys--and I'm now thinking about upgrading my desktop machine to Home Premium because it looks so nice.
Minor gripe: whenever the computer restarts, the screen is set to full brightness and I have to back it down several notches. There doesn't appear to be a contrast setting, either.
Anyway, so I've been fiddling with it for about seven hours, now. I knew it would take a good chunk of time to get it close to where I wanted it, software-wise, and I was right. Not all of that time was spent on bit-wrangling, though; I was surfing the Internet and chatting with a friend, and discovering that I needed this or that installed.
But now it's getting close to bedtime; I've got work tonight and I want to try to get as much rest as I can. Then I have three days off in a row. Yay me.
