Re: "HDTV" Discussion

I don't know if this has been mentioned already, but Randall's cellphone has a horizontal resolution of 960 pixels? I call massive, massive bullshit. The line was "over twice", so it could be any of the newer hi-res android phones. Droid is 854px, the nexus one is 800px wide. Either would...

Re: "MicroSD" Discussion

I know calculations have been done already, but since I have my google already done... Taking some liberal assumptions, like an average size of 6.98 MB for an iTunes track (which I averaged from my purchased tracks, probably not a good sample)... and the size of the iTunes library at 11 million trac...

Re: "Things fall apart" Discussion

I think the secret to finding someone you truly love is understanding the events that must have led to this comic. And to do that, perhaps you'd have to have been there before. It kinda sucks.

My girlfriend is a librarian from Baltimore (or thereabouts; suburb of Baltimore). And she's not an official librarian, she just works in the library shelving and checking out books (that's pretty darn close).
