After returning home from college for the summer, I wanted to get my desktop computer online with the wireless network. Unfortunately for my Internet addiction, the desktop computer didn’t have a wireless adapter. I ordered one off of NewEgg, but in the mean time I was left without the glorious internet on my desktop computer’s big screens. What do I do?! The laptop could connect to the wireless network, so there’s a start. Windows has the ability to share the Internet connection of one network adapter over another. Bingo. I describe the process in the following video.
Today I learned this friggin’ sweet timesaver for yard work involving bagging debris. I call it “The Ren Method.”
Here’s the video!
I often come across interesting articles online and want to share them some way on my blog. I considered a few different ways to do this, including incorporating a microblogging platform like Twitter into my blog, but I think it will be better to simply make longer blog posts with several links when I accumulate enough. I guess I’ll give this a try. Here is what’s news to me:
- Microsoft Surface SP1 adds a slew of new features.
I thought this was really cool. I think Microsoft Surface technology is really great, and would love to develop applications for it one day. I also love videos that give insight into the workings of big (software) companies like Microsoft. This video is included in the linked post:
- Long exposure shows Roomba cleaning path
I’m a Roomba owner myself, so that made me even more inclined to think that this picture was really cool:
- 11 Killer Apps for Microsoft Surface
Some of the apps are pretty ridiculous, but I do like this video:
- Microsoft search to be powered by open source
I thought this was interesting, because it contradicts Microsoft’s “monolithic evil empire” stereotype. Keep an eye on kumo.com.
- Leaked: Office 2010 Technical Preview screenshots
I am looking forward to getting my hands on the Office 2007 Beta, especially to see the Ribbon in OneNote and Outlook.
That’s it for now I guess. Hopefully I’ll continue to do this.
A friend of mine from high school—he goes by Dan Metalmadcat online—creates amazing flash animations. I’ve tried flash myself, and I fail at it miserably. Dan showed me his latest animation, and I liked it so much I thought I’d share it with my
Dan says this about his animation:
Spontaneous Overflow is the latest animation I’ve done with Flash. Quite abstract and symbolic but always with the same degree of nonsense. In "Spontaneous Overflow" I was challenged by the statement of William Wordsworth who called poetry as a "Spontaneous Overflow of powerful feelings"
William did a good job explaining through words, now is my time to explain it in a visual art form kind of way..
Hope you like it.
