Harry Potter, Oxford, and the Whole Enchilada

What prosecutor would want to put up with such a loose cannon?

Review of Apple iBook 500MHz, 10G HDD, 128M RAM

I own a new iBook in Lime Green. 128M Ram, MacOS 9.1, and its been a mixed blessing. Its fast, but I am now unused to the preemptive multitasking vibe that Mac has. It doesn't like to be pushed too hard to yanked around; I believe that it senses negative energy and crashed if I am not centered.
