I threw a chair at a bully in the middle of language class who stole a dollar from me a week before... 10 years ago. Three years prior, I threw a defunct hand grenade at another bully during recess, although I missed and it cracked the sidewalk.

Only reasons why I was never picked on in school. They don't like me craziness.

"TECHNOLOGY; Apple Introduces What It Calls an Easier to Use Portable Music Player
By MATT RICHTEL
Published: October 24, 2001

CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 23— Apple Computer introduced a portable music player today and declared that the new gadget, called the iPod, was so much easier to use that it would broaden a nascent market in the way the Macintosh once helped make the personal computer accessible to a more general audience.

But while industry analysts said the device appeared to be as consumer friendly as the company said it was, they also pointed to its relatively limited potential audience, around seven million owners of the latest Macintosh computers. Apple said it had not yet decided whether to introduce a version of the music player for computers with the Windows operating system, which is used by more than 90 percent of personal computer users.

''It's a nice feature for Macintosh users,'' said P. J. McNealy, a senior analyst for Gartner G2, an e-commerce research group. ''But to the rest of the Windows world, it doesn't make any difference.''

Steven P. Jobs, Apple's chief executive, disputed the concern that the market was limited, and said the company might have trouble meeting holiday demand. He predicted that the improvement in technology he said the iPod represented would inspire consumers to buy Macintosh computers so they could use an iPod.

There are several categories of digital music devices, including players that use flash memory, which are small but expensive. Another competing player relies on magnetic hard drives, which are typically larger in both capacity and size, and thus are enclosed in larger gadgets. The market for all such devices is growing and is expected to be around 18 million units by 2005, according to IDC, a market research firm.

The iPod, which will sell for $399 when it becomes available on Nov. 10, is something of a hybrid of existing products. At 4 inches by just under 2.5 inches and just over three-quarters of an inch thick, it is as small as flash players, but it has a 5-gigabyte hard drive, large enough to store 1,000 songs.

Among the features being promoted, the device uses an Apple technology called Firewire to permit songs to be transferred from a computer onto the gadget at a rate of around 1 second a song, substantially faster than other portable players, the company said.

Mr. Jobs said other major advances were its ease of use and a rechargeable lithium battery that runs for 10 hours, making it the most sophisticated battery in any Apple computer or device.

But just how easy MP3 players are to use is a matter of some concern to the record industry. The industry has expressed concern that songs encoded in the MP3 format -- a popular digital format into which songs can be converted and stored -- can be easily pirated or traded freely, as on services like Napster.

Mr. Jobs said the company had taken some steps to protect against piracy in its device. For instance, he said, songs loaded onto the iPod from a Macintosh computer, cannot then be loaded from the device to a different Macintosh computer, a step he said would make it difficult for people to distribute music they own to other users.

The Recording Industry Association of America, which represents the major record labels, declined to comment on the iPod.

Susan Kevorkian, a digital music industry analyst with IDC, praised the new iPod design, saying the combination of its ease of use, portability and big storage space would influence competitors. ''This raises the bar,'' she said."

Sleeping through Philosophy of Science.

I liked the subject, and John Carroll was a nice professor and good to talk to one-on-one but his monotone lecturing drone just lulled me to sleep.

/I wish I'd recorded it, there are nights I could use that as white noise.

^ If there was EVER a class to sleep through, that was the one.

10 years ago.... at this point I was a freshman in high school. I think I had just acquired my first girlfriend, and lost her the next week. I later found out she was playing truth or dare with one of her friends, and her dare was to date me

... I would be running around like a madman at the high school track doing sets of 100m, 200m and 400m sprints till 5:30pm. But if I remember correctly, my day would consist of C++, gym, AP chem, lunch, AP cal AB, AP us history, then track practice.

Damn, my head hurts trying to remember that order correctly.
