How long is this camp for? Our school had some leadership camps but it was only for a week. If it is over a week, definitely sneak something in.

I see.

Anyways to answer your original question, I found a nice article: 10 Ways to Cool Down Your Laptop - NYTimes.com

Summarizing some of the points:
- use a hard surface
- make/buy a simple stand
- use settings to lower brightness
- fan the laptop
- rest it between use

^^I picked up this mini displayport to HDMI cable for my Macbook pro today...I hooked it up but my ASUS monitor just has a random screen on it, anyone know how I can configure this? I thought I just had to hook it up and it would work

What Internet browser is the best?

I currently use Google Chrome but sometimes it crashes. As in it keeps saying "waiting for cache" at the bottom of the screen and does not load the page.

I heard Firefox is the most insecure browser though.

Just run adblock on it and it is awesome. Also, IE is the most insecure one, from what I remember.

IE sucks. Takes longer compared to others to start up, and freezes up often.

I'll see about that adblock tip, thanks!

I would but sometimes I am scared that it'll get saved to history, and since I use Firefox I don't want to go back and delette all history.

Don't you know those sites get viruses? I don't think private browsing hides your porn sites. Rogers knows what your doing and I'm sure the computers that have the network can see that site you are looking at. Could be wrong though

I don't care if the internet provider knows what I am doing. My parents mustn't know and that is all.
