Reformatted my files hard drive into a format that can be read by both linux and windoze.Â Successfully copied over most of my files.Â The big news: turned on file sharing!Â Now my linux-hosted hard drive is accessible over the windoze network.Â Awesome.
At least I have something going for me these days . . .

Things are getting worse at the San Mateo DA.Â It seems like they don't appreciate anything I do.Â I'm getting more and more unhappy there.Â Last night I woke up in the middle of the night coughing up bile.Â Bad sign.Â I sent an email to the clinic professor, maybe I can get transfered out.

This is my first new post with password protection. Thanks to all of you who are interested enough to ask for a password.
Work was good today. Got a handful of cases so I won't be terribly bored this week. I have one case where the defendant's name is Nepoleon Baltazar. Awesome name. (Is it a breach of confidentiality for me to reveal his name? No. The fact that Mr. Baltazar is a defendant in a criminal case is public record. The hearing on April 11th will be open to the public. Come to the county courthouse in South San Francisco and you can watch the hearing.)

And I'm sticking with it. I made the technical/psychological leap today that makes me feel comfortable sticking with Ubuntu. My printer worked fine "out of the box," without having to install any extra drivers or anything, and Gnome (part of Linux) even had a built-in print manager. Awesome. But, turns out that sharing the printer over the network is something for which there is no easy answer. After three days of wading through /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, I finally got it working. BUT THEN I was only able to print from OTHER COMPUTERS, not from my own!

Well, not really. But I realized today that I really shouldn't talk about work. I am an employee of the San Mateo District Attorney (albeit an unpaid one) and therefore I am a public representative of the office. I wouldn't want to inadvertantly say something and have anyone think that I was actually representing office policy.
Let me be clear: this is a personal blog. When I write here, I am not representing the office.

I've decided to start running Linux again. You can blame this on my friend Curtis who kept telling me how great it is. Also, you can blame it on law school. How? Well, because of law school I'm playing a lot less computer games. And computer games are pretty much the only reason for me to be running Windows; everything else I need is available in Linux. Curtis assures me that the quality of the software for Linux is pretty much on par with Windows or Mac OS (last time I ran Linux that wasn't the case).

What shocks me about this story is that IT JUST KEEPS HAPPENING.Â Bush is the Lance Armstrong of failure.Â What's shocking is that not only are registered Republicans starting to get sick of him, but registered Republicans are starting to get sick of the Republican Party.Â Less than half of registered Republicans believe the Republican-controlled Congress is doing a good job.

On Wednesday I turned in my moot court brief.Â That's the one with the Ten-Error Rule (if I have more than ten errors, including putting the period in the wrong place in a complicated legal citation, I fail the class).Â On Thursday I had my first hearing (I won).Â Today I'm with my family celebrating my sister's birthday.Â Meanwhile we're still negotiating with the landlords about how much compensation they're willing to give us in order to have us move out so they can convert the building to TIC's.Â We haven't reached a "meeting of the minds" yet, and I think we're about at the limit
