Netbook / Ultrabook Recommendations?

I'd like to replace my 2 or 3 year-old Acer 12-inch netbook with something that has more horsepower. But I still want something that's small and light with at least 6 hours of battery life. I also want a netbook or laptop that's sturdy and doesn't get hot or have a loud fan. It looks like the Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook meets my needs and it gets very good reviews. Although I'm nervous about it having only a 3-cell battery. I also like the specs for Lenovo's $750 Thinkpad Edge e220s but there are no customer reviews for it on Newegg or Amazon. I'd like your input and to know if I've overlooked any other good choices. I'd rather spend $500 than $800, but I might be willing to pay even more for a truly great machine. [more inside]

help me pick a nice red wine for my dad for Christmas

I'd like to get my dad a nice bottle of red wine to drink with Christmas dinner. I'm thinking a nice table wine that he maybe hasn't tried before. His favorites are Masi's Campofiorin and the Cesari Mara. In the past I've splurged on some nice Amarone's and Barolo's but I'm thinking I'd like to do something in the $10-$20 range. Any suggestions? Thanks!

LinkedIn Endorsements - Trim to the few "best" or show them all?

I've often called my career in architecture glorified itinerant work. The fact is that I need to go where the jobs are. So, despite having confidence in my position for the next six months to two years, I recently decided to start brushing up my public facing networking tools. In particular this means LinkedIn, and I decided to send a request for recommendations to many folks I have worked with over the past decade and a half at several positions. The result has been pretty gratifying to my ego, but now I realize I need to better understand the etiquette and strategy of how best to post them. [more inside]

Help finding gorgeous or mind-bending or hilarious anime to watch?

I like anime, but I've been mostly out of touch for a while. When I look at a list of titles I don't know what most of them are! Can you give me some recommendations of gorgeous or endearing or mind-bending anime series newer than 1996 or so that aren't Death Note, Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) or Wallflower? (Liked all of those, but have seen them!) Older favorites include Revolutionary Girl Utena, Fruits Basket, Saiyuki, Hana Yori Dango, Kodomo no Omocha, movies by Satoshi Kon... Gay characters are a plus, though not required. Availability isn't really a factor, I will find it as long as I know what it is!
