    that model looks 12 years old. what the hell.

    you know what would be cool for college candy? do one post or day/week devoted to real beauty and put pictures of real women. i have seen this blog where a guy takes pictures of real people on the street whose fashion style he admires. that would be a sweet post or themed time period. maybe to coincide with some type of awareness day/week, like eating disorder awareness?

    I have seen many useful issues on your web site about personal computers.

    However, I have the viewpoint that netbooks are still

    not nearly powerful more than enough to be a good option if

    you frequently do tasks that require plenty of power, like

    video enhancing. But for web surfing, word processing, and a

    lot other prevalent computer functions they are okay, provided you may not mind the little

    screen size. Many thanks for sharing your thinking.
