Apparently the phone line outside my bedroom was bust, that is now fixed and we have the phone line back, however the tech guy has inadvertantly cut off the upstairs phone line... just my luck. My dad has since managed to fix that, YAY! however that doesn't seem to include internet... this is cruel! I just phoned Demon after messing with the router for hours, and it turns out, guess what! they are having work done on 4 nodes, including the one I happen to be on... what are the chances... someone doesn't want me to see the Apple keynote, It's a bloody conspiracy.
Yay at last I have internet and I have just finished watching the Apple Keynote.
They are having fun with tag lines
Hmm I just had a thought, I wonder what happens if I drag a movie clip in here....
Oh it doesn't work, though it should... oh well. I have just found that TextEdit has a tendency to randomly name pasted graphics in such a way that breaks the links to them, more fun!
At another time I'll put in a quick image script to convert all the images to jpg as they are currently rather large TIFF's
Ok I couldn't help it, I've added the image compression code now. All works well. Now maybe I can do some work today?
Well at the expense of a few hours excitement over MW I have achieved nothing today, I'm amazed I haven't been that tired today because of how broken my sleep was.
I'm still unsure of my picture/drawing on MySpace. It's funny in It's creepiness, but is it too creepy? in a bad way?
Just thinking about logo designs, and what I could do for a design, I really loved for reasons beyond my understanding the graphic of 3 dots ''95 '95 '95' an ellipsis. They just look good and simple. Unfortunately It's associated with waiting, delays, omission and comes from the greek word ellepein 'to fall short' but otherwise it sounds and looks cool IMO.
Damn the meaning! Maybe I can be clever and combine it with somehting to mean Not/No/Negative ellipsis. One positive thing is it means to remove text so what's left is only what's need to be understood. Which is something I'm a fan of. Also the meaning of this symbol and even It's real name is far from common knowledge.
Oh crap... figures. I\'m not the only person to think It's a cool word.
Turns out It's also the code name for a big patch to fix bugs in Flash MX2004
Yay, I just figured out the whole TextEdit paste naming bug, so now I can paste without worry! total time to code RTFtoXML: 2:30
Hopefully this will be the last post in the diary about the diary
:-D(I sadly doubt it)
