I wrote a little application for a class I am taking. It allows you to find bills, legislators, committee information on any U.S. representative. You can also contact them – and send them real letters. Get their voting records, FEC records, you name it.

Not sure what to do with it, but I actually find it pretty useful. Java is ugly, but I did what I could with it. Figured I would post since I got a lot of compliments on it.

I had a problem updating my Ubuntu from the command line.  If you get the error in the title, try this. Usually it will fail on boot after the upgrade. This seemed to help me.  Make sure you are root:

mount -n -o remount,rw /
dpkg --configure -a

Hope this helps someone.
