What Does Your Escape Key Do?

Yeah, CSI: NY has some pretty unrealistic parts to it. But I still watch it some.

But the latest episode features Second Life. The evil villain tries to download some virus into the crime lab, and the computer savvy young guy saves the day. How?

He shuts down the ENTIRE SYSTEM by pressing the ESCAPE KEY:

Can your escape key do that? Only if you’re in CSI.





Green Tax Incentives Around the World

I am a licensed attorney, but this post is for education only.

Tax time isn’t here yet (at least in the U.S.), but it’s always good to think about ways to lower your tax bill. And what could be better than helping the environment?! So let’s look at green tax incentives around the globe.

United States

Home energy efficiency – Homeowners are eligible for a residential energy efficiency tax credit if you install high-efficiency heating, cooling, and water-heating equipment. This is a credit, which means it directly reduces your taxes due. But you …





Business Card Display Holder Ideas

We talk a lot about business cards around here, from distinguishing them to students, finding unique cards, and legal card ideas. But what about business card display? What kind of cool business card holders do you use?

Business card display on your car

A neat idea that I recently saw is pictured here. A car had typical lettering on the back window (selling solar panels, I believe). But it also had a built-in business card holder: the wiper blade!

The wiper blade had simple “take one” labels …





New Server, Please be Patient

My Digg journey crashed the shared hosting account that Legal Andrew was using. I had been with Total Choice Hosting for years, and they’ve done a fine job. But the $4 account I had just can’t handle a traffic surge.

About an hour ago, I setup an account with (mt) Media Temple. It’s their (gs) Grid-Service hosting, which is designed to automagically scale when traffic surges. For $20 per month (actually, $17 with code “surfstation”), I now have 100 GB of space and up to 100 domains.

Media Temple has received some mixed reviews around the blogosphere. But …

Buy now from Amazon
You may remember that Penelope sent me a copy of Brazen Careerist in March. No, it doesn’t take 7 months to read. In fact, it’s a really easy read. I just procrastinated.

Virginia Bar Exam Results

Updated – 10/17 at 10:55am

Not yet.

Results were posted this morning. Get them HERE.

I PASSED!

But the official results page now has a new message posted. Before, the Bar Examiners just said they would be releasing results “mid October.” Now, the page says they “expect” to release the results on or before October 18.

The weekend will either be really happy or super depressed.

I’m curious how many examinees will land on this page from Google searches, eagerly anticipating their results.


My Digg Journey in Pictures

Thanks to you great readers, Legal Andrew had its first Digg main page debut. On Sunday, my photo law post hit the main page!

Unfortunately, my server tanked. As you know, it’s pretty common with shared hosting accounts. Heck, I only pay $4 per month!

Now I’m on the lookout for a new host that can handle this amount of traffic in the future. Once you’ve hit Digg once, you’re addicted!

For now, I wanted so share my Digg journey with you guys. Here’s the photo album. :)

I was ecstatic to reach the top of …


Sell More, Blog as a Student, and Win!

Whew! It’s been a big weekend for Legal Andrew. I’ll post details in a day or two, but my post on photo law made the main page at Digg!

For now, I wanted to point out a couple things you might enjoy reading.

Susan Cartier Liebel did a great examination of whether or not law students should blog. If you’re pondering the topic at all, it’s a must read.

I just published a …

Photo Law – Your Right to Take Pictures in Public

You have a camera. But do you know your rights when it comes to public photography? You’ll learn them here.

Public photography is wide open

That’s the general rule. When you’re on public property (a street, sidewalk, city park, etc) you can take pictures of what you see. This means that you can also photograph private property as long as you’re not trespassing to get the shot.

Unfortunately, life is never that simple. There are a couple exceptions to the rule and other details you need to know.

Does the photo subject expect …
