House

Just made an offer on this house. Still can’t quite believe it. Apparently I’m third on the list. They’ll let me know on monday. Fingers crossed.

LotR3

There are new wallpapers and posters available for the 3rd Lord of the Rings movie. More wallpaper can be found at Blitzgal. What a name for a site. Anyhow, watched a making of part 2 earlier this week, which included some scenes from the third installment. Can’t wait for December.

Mars

Remember to watch for Mars tonight. Hope it’s not to cloudy.

Redesign

Macomedia’s finally mentioned their new products on their site. Meanwhile, I had a brilliant idea for my site on the busride home. Which I’m quite pleased with, since I was rather stuck. And I found PhotoStack, which I’m going to test in a minute.
Finally made up my mind and decided on getting the Palm Zire at Amazon. Only to find out that this item can’t be shipped to your selected destination. Sigh. Luckily my dad was kind enough to make a trip to Mediamarkt for me. Who turned out to be out of stock. But they ordered new ones and they should be here friday. Fingers crossed.

Reading

Finished Batavia’s Graveyard. Which I highly recommend, by the way. My next undertaking will be The Private Life of Chairman Mao, which are the memoirs of his personal physician, Zhisui Li.

Buttons

They’re everywhere! Those quirky buttons, you know the ones I’m talking about. Now you can make your own, with this buttonmaker or get the script at minimal verbosity.

Improvements

These Web design postcards are an excellent way of letting people know about improvements they can make on their sites. Oh, and it led me to find Quick Color, which will come in handy. I’m still working on a redesign for this site, and still haven’t found the right scheme.

Zire

Still keeping an eye out for the perfect PDA. Like the look of the Palm Zire Handheld, which is relatively cheap at Amazon. It’s quite basic, but that’s all I need really. The only thing that worries me is the limited amount of memory.

Thunderbird

Found a link to this excellent 5-part Introduction to Thunderbird, via MozillaZine. So if you haven’t tried it out yet, here’s your chance.

Mach-II

Checking out Mach-II. Fusebox is a procedural framework that empowers application developers. Mach-II is an object-oriented framework that does the same — and has the added benefit of making maintainability easier. According to Hal Helms that is. Currently it only works in ColdFusion MX 6.1, but a PHP and a java version are planned.
