A for Apple, B for Busto, and V

My Airport card died on my iBook, so I'm left with a laptop without wireless. That one used to be my "carry it around the house" machine, as my 17" Inspiron 9300 is more of a desktop replacement. You can put it on your lap, but it's a little unwieldy. I won't fix it, but I have to make a decision to possibly replace it with a smaller and more portable laptop.

A good friend of mine just went busto in the Main Event at the World Series of Poker, and he's down to ending his day with a nice family dinner. He went pretty deep into the money, but not deep enough to see the really big jumps after they get to 6 figures.

I saw V for Vendetta 3 times in the past 3 days, and it's a great movie. The sound levels on the DVD are a bit messed up, so I keep watching it to catch more of the quotes. I'm sure I could find a transcipt of the movie, but it's fun enough to watch multiple times.

I think it means that I'm a pessimistic libertarian since I see "V world" as "1984 world" as the "USA in 5 years."
