Well, the Patriots won the Super Bowl - Elf M. Sternberg
Well, the Patriots won the Super Bowl
And we actually watched it, omahas, shaterri, and I. It was about all I had the braincells for after a day of cleaning house, including running out for the monthly warehouse shopping run. Kouryou-chan was pretty good about the whole trip, a little restless towards the end, but she managed to make it through the whole day without getting into too much trouble. Omaha put her hair up in pigtails and she looks adorable. She's also addicted to that "Smack the Penguin" game that technoshaman pointed out a couple days ago in his journal.

I'm pleased to see that the new Journal Entry went up without a problem. That's one of those smack-the-head "DUH!" moments that I wish I had more often. I've had code to display the stories in the order in which they were printed for years, which means that the story database has the publication date, but it never occurred to me that I could also exclude stories from view based on the notion that their publication date is sometime in the future. It was two freakin' lines of code! DUH. Silly Elf. Silly, silly Elf. And it's not that I don't have the stories written on time. It's frequently more like I forget to post them. I'm the world's worst procrastinator. If it's not mission-critical, "I'll get around to it later," I tend to forget about it.

I tried three new programs for the palm: Checklist, Teapot, and My Little Black Book.

Checklist was okay. In fact, of all the programs I tried, it was the one I most wanted to keep. Unfortunately it has a serious addressing error that crashes the palm on a regular basis. It's just what it say it is: a checklist program. You make lists, and it will let you check off items. It's kinda like the to-do list, but with more features. It's general enough for grocery lists, lists of things you'd want to read or buy someday. It's missing another important feature: attaching a note to an item.

My Little Black Book is exactly that, a little black book. It has entries for things your date likes and a checklist of general impressions. Cute, but I think I'll stick to attaching notes to things in my address book.

And Teapot is also a cute, animated picture of a cup of tea (or coffee) with a countdown timer and four pre-set intervals for timing the perfect cup. Again, like My Little Black Book, I declined to keep it because it doesn't do anything Big Clock doesn't, and it's not as general-purpose.

Current Mood: sleepy sleepy

errr....uh oh.....

well you said kouryou-chan saw the super bowl correct? Well for her sake i sure hope she did not see the halftime show(although 99% of it was kick arse) because of a accidental "exposure" of janet jacksons bare breast by justin timberlake at the last moment. I dont know whether this would actually affect her (kouryou-chan) in any way or scar her pretty badly (very unlikely not but you never know). I must say that was quite the "suprise" during the halftime show.hehehe maybe you saw it but maybe you dident. Hah i bet the internet is thick with its photo/vid by now.

Re: errr....uh oh.....

Nah, nobody watched the half-time show. We all got up and did other things for that time, then came back later. We have a PVR, so we "froze" it and skipped right over it. Nobody saw it then and I don't think we're really interested in rewinding it and watching it now.

I doubt exposure to a breast would scar Kouryou-chan anyway. It's not like her Mom doesn't have them, and I doubt anything they did in a public space like The Super Bowl would convert into "things I should do or talk about with my friends."

She found the actual game terribly boring, and spent most of it trying to get the grownups to do something else, like play with her.

You mean "accidental" exposure...a message to the appropriate people:

To the Super Bowl committee: you contracted with MTV, which provides as much sexuality in it's shows as it can, to do a half-time show and didn't expect any sexuality? Do you have a brain in your skull...or hot air. Oh, so that's how the hot air balloons are blown up!

To CBS: Dudes, that was totally planned. The cover on the breast was made to come off, the song spoke of removing clothes to promote nudity, the guy did it purposefully, and the nipple was covered...under clothing (nobody covers nipples unless they believe exposure is intended). You're lying through your teeth...either you knew it was planned, or you didn't attend a single rehearsal (or attended ten minutes of one and thought that was good enough).

To the general public: folks, it's a breast. 95% of you sucked on one for between 6 weeks and 4 years. Get over it!

Re: errr....uh oh.....

believe me i was in no way upset about the unveiling of janets boob. It was just quite the shock when i saw it happen.i just expected a dirty dance and not a quick peep sow....especially from the likes of janet jackson.i know she is nobody new to the exposure of skin but so far in her life she has managed to keep her full blown view of her breast/s from the general public/media. It was just quite odd for it too happen during a superbowl halftime show.(then again most of the audience was males who probably loved that thing so it doesent seem "too" odd.hmmmmm.)

From your remarks about Checklist, I recommend you hunt down and try out HandyShopper.

Does Big Clock work in PalmOS5? I find there are a number of things I would *like* to have, but can't because something isn't ready to deal with the finer resolution of my Tungsten screen, or that just aren't prepared to cope with PalmOS5.

I have no idea. I'm still running Palm OS4 on a m500, so I have no experience with the higher-end models. I just know that I couldn't live without BigClock, BrainForest, and CSpotRun on my Palm. Oh, and SecureMemoPad for my passwords (3DES encryption on selected files, ordinary Memo pad otherwise).

Well okay. I guess this means I have more Palm App things to look at.

You fiend, you. :)
