Do you recommend a v-rack like you used, or is a flat rack OK?

A santoku knife is characterized by the shape of the blade, not the indentations. The indentations are found on all shapes of knives now, even small paring knives. So, this cutco knife is a 'santoku'.

In the summer heat, going salt-free is a bad idea. As you sweat, you're losing salt and other minerals, and without replenishment your body will slowly shut down.

If you're doing this for health reasons, cut down on salt in moderation but not totally. But if you're doing this for some bunky pseudo-health reasons, stop. You'll only hurt yourself.

Very nice! That poster in the bedroom looks like an advert for the movie 'Amelie'.

This question has probably been asked and answered before but I have to ask - where is the table from? I've been looking for something like that for months. Thank you.

Williams-Sonoma sells one by Waring for $170, not as stylish as this one, though.

It fits into a niche that's been absent since Apple stopped making the 2400C - a lightweight portable machine.

Things have moved on since the 2400C - more powerful processors, extremely lightweight, wireless backup. When the new Macbook first came out, look how many people complained about it - too big, too small, too slow, integrated graphics, too white, too plastic - but now it's accepted as a pretty good machine.

Granted, the MBA's price is a bit high, but for new technology it's not that bad. Instead of looking at what's not there, look at the overall picture and view it as another step forward.

ervington is right on. People who are whining about the "unusability" of the MBA are missing the point.

The MBA is not supposed to be the end-all all in one machine. Seriously, how many times haves you used your CD/DVD drive? How many USB devices do you need when you're taking notes in class?

For people who already have a desktop, the MBA would the perfect companion for road travel. For students, what more can you ask for? It's lightweight (less strain on your back), power efficient (for the long days at school), business (who wants to lug a 5-7 lb machine everywhere?)

This machine is perfect for 90% of people who just use a computer to check email, surf, write, and read. Looking forward to getting mine.
