This is what I always imagined

One of the things that I always wanted as a kid who could draw was the ability to touch any object in the world and get the colour into my pencil. I always imagined something that would allow me to do this. As time pasted I came to realize that the, 'eyedropper' tool found in most modern day painting applications have this. So I became to love this. And with digital photos and scanning I could now accomplish what I wanted. But I still always wanted a portable pencil like tool that I could just touch objects in the real world. Well here we are today and MIT has published information about a new technologythat allows this. They call this the, "I/O Brush" Very Cool. Let's work on the size and we will have something.

Office 12 - PDF Support

Why does Microsoft take so long to implement PDF support in Office if they've been hearing about it for YEARS from customers and they get 30,000 search requests (per WEEK) on the OfficeOnline website? Good God, how is that listening to customers?!?!

Scripting Language Stats

It appears scripting languages are falling a bit.

Mr. W Fete

Today was the bornday party of Mr. W. [tomorrow is the real day] I put together a custom label for some Johnny Bootlegger, made a custom DVD, gathered some mini chocolate bars and some paper (+f) and 2-pizzas and gave that to him. There was some familiar people. Hadn't seen Julien in a while. I was ifie about going over there I only wanted to drop by for 15 min. show him the stuff and leave avec P. But things got a little extended. I walked around the street so everyone would be comfortable. But I heard later they weren't. No problem in the end I wasn't there that long. I hope everything was OK with him. It was an important Fete and I didn't want to ruin it.

Took P to his friend Nick's place. Nothing seemed to be going on there. It was apparently his bornday as well but the real date was 3 weeks before. It turns out that it was really boring but I certainly didn't hang around. Dropped-off and departed within 5 min.

Back to my place to watch the DVD, "The Longest Yard". Not a bad movie, good for a Sat. night. It was just reaching the climax when P and Alex phoned. Pretty late ~12:30pm. I picked them up with Max [of course] and let them crash at my place. It's the first time that P crash. We watched the DVD again and then watched, "Robots". Everyone fell asleep watching this.

People left in the morning to catch the 10:25am bus.

A long week

A long week is finally over. I was sick since last Friday and had assignments to hand in today. After failing to get some personal things done I'm certainly happy with the effort and results [I hope] that I did for school.

Mr. W. wanted to gvaa himself tonight and I was more then happy to since it's been a while. Wow, it was great a different taste and experience. Probably the best ever. Also found out that's he's left handed. Cool. But better not tell him that we are the same, this doesn't go over well :-( Oddly it was very difficult to sleep last night. Maybe it was just one of those nights. Mr. W. left at ~9:00pm. He wanted to go to the Subway but I had just eaten and wasn't up to it. I just thought I'm not hungry why do I want to watch him eat. And I was very tired and I returned home and had a night of the DVD, "Robots". Interesting DVD.
