    At a birthday lunch for one of our own today, we collectively came up with what could be the most important idea in the history of digital imaging – the Etch-A-Sketch plugin for Photoshop, turning any digital image into a * real * work of art. Which...

    Micro-ATX with DVI?

    • 0 Comments
    I'm really warming to the idea of building a living-room PC based on VIA's latest EPIA mini-ITX footprint. Unfortunately, I haven't found one yet that has a standard DVI-output on the motherboard, something I'd really want for my media center... The EMIA...

    One little ratio

    • 0 Comments
    Wow. I picked up “ The Golden Ratio ” when I went shopping for Quicksilver the other day, and actually started reading it before Quicksilver. No regrets so far. It's not so much a math dissertation as it is a study of the impact on society...

    Have you heard about “ Let It Be Naked ”? Sir Paul and Ringo are getting rid of the Spectorization of some of the Beatles' best stuff. Yeah, I know - John Lennon approved of the project. Whatever - half of “Let It Be” wasn't his...

    Windows "Error" Reporting really works

    Every time I go my folk's place, I always check their PC to make sure the latest updates have been applied. Lat time I was there, I finally set the preferences to download and install patches automatically, so I sleep much better at night. If you are...

    POLITICAL: We asked for this

    • 6 Comments
    Hey I hate to say it, and we asked for this. It's stories like this that I hope inspire more folk to openly question things like the Patriot Act. I'm not advocating anarchy; I am advocating more involvement in our government on everyone's part. http...

    Limping for a bit

    • 0 Comments
    Looks like I'll be limping a bit till this weekend. Scott's playing around with the backend of this site, and it's temporarily broken the metablog support. So, no w.bloggar, and no posting from Newsgator for a while. Crap, now I have to do real work....

    I hate blogger.com

    • 5 Comments
    I’m addicted to NewsGator . When I hit an interesting site, the first thing I do is hit the “Import into NewsGator” button that’s now on my IE toolbar. That way, I don’t have to go searching and scrolling all over sites just...

    I’m shopping for a camera phone. Actually, I’m trying to replace my iPaq, my cell phone, and my digital camera (low-end) all at the same time. What device should I get? The Treo 600? I’d like to be able to download ringtones, content...
