First, the more serious resolutions inspired by the tsunami tragedy: treasure loved ones and the short time we get in this life; give more; be more humble about the affairs of Man Second, the fun ones: do a 3 minute free-dive (my personal best is a 2:51 dive in September, but I haven’t come close […]
I am working on “Weka Wiki”: an ink-based Wiki (”Weka” being the Hawaiian word for “squid ink”). All pages will be rendered on any machine (as bitmaps on mundane machines), but the only way to edit ink-based pages will be with a Tablet PC. My question for the inkernet: when it comes to editing, is […]
Greg Hughes came up with the idea of donating all AdSense revenue pending at the new year to disaster relief.
Journal Reader Component for Tablet PC SDK 1.7 via [Microsoft Download Center] Note that the documentation contains samples that read ” Dim jntReader As New Microsoft.Ink.JournalReader()” and similar.

My first article on Pynk, my experimental Python IDE, is up on DevX http://www.devx.com/TabletPC/Article/26666. The preliminary version of Pynk is available for download and can be used to work interactively with IronPython on the Tablet PC.
What do you clean your Tablet screen with? I have been going with a water-dampened microfiber cloth but as part of my end-of-the-year cleaning spree, I was thinking of going a little stronger. There are no computer stores on the Big Island, so anything I buy gets about a $10 shipping charge tacked on, so […]
“At issue, the judge said, is whether the actions rose to the level required by a new anti-spam law, which states that spam must be not only annoying but deceptive.” Via [Alice and Bill.com] You can never be sure that a news report isn’t about some legal “crossing the ts and dotting the is” but […]
Optional static typing has long been requested as a Python feature. It’s been studied in depth before (e.g. on the type-sig) but has proven too hard for even a PEP to appear. In this post I’m putting together my latest thoughts on some issues, without necessarily hoping to solve all problems. via [Artima Weblogs] Even […]
