At last, the thing that makes touch screens as good as keyboards. And better.

Oh! Look!

I love a good Shakespeare comedy, and I love Joss Whedon's work, and now I Get a twofer. Everyone spread the word about this thing on the horizon.

Also, I enjoy the performances of many of the stars and supporting cast in this thing.

It's not new any longer, but a couple of Friday's ago, Oct 21, I had my eyeballs lasered. Originally, I was just in for PTK, which is where they sandpaper off the epithelium in the hopes it grows back better.

I let them upsell me into also PRK, which is the kind that changes your prescription. The change was stark and immediate. I could suddenly see out of my eyes.

Now the fun part. Today one of the eyes came loose. It was excruciating. Lucky for me, eye doctors are serious about is, so there was a standby doc willing, on a Sunday night, to see me. He fixed me up good.

They work fine now, except I'm now so old I don't have variable focus. So I have to pick near or far vision and correct for the other by putting on and taking off glasses all day long.

I got far vision, and cheap reading glasses for the close work.

I work at Google now. Today I had my orientation, and it was wonderful. Free food, bicycle rides, sports, and the friendliest people ever. Plus other things that I can't tell you about.

Me too, but he announced it on Slashdot a few days ago.

I see that G+ allows me to "+1" my own posts. It should probably just assume I approve of my own work.

Do not get this one.

I rented this from Netflix recently, because "Doctor Who". Alas! It is not worth watching.

First, it's animated in that combo of cell-shed 3d and rotoscope, which is not wrong, but I prefer characters allowed to move; these don't much. Second, the T.A.R.D.I.S. is gray, not the Police Box Blue that everyone knows it should be. The Doctor doesn't quite look like David Tennant.

They have added a pointless robot bird, apparently following the Disney formula that every cartoon movie must have a cutesy sidekick for "the children" to relate to.

The final straw: when the characters talk, the animators have done something wrong with their mouths. It looks as if they have put rubber skins over cheap robots. Sickening.

★★. Don't see it unless you must see everything "Doctor Who" and have already watched all the recreations of missing episodes.

Magic: the Gathering! I can't quit you, man.

Friday I went back to the local magic shop, and played in the booster draft they have every Friday ever. I lost the game, but "won" in that one of my cards is Jace, memory Adept, which is worth about $30 on the open market. Overall, I am 3/4 getting planeswalkers when I play in a booster draft. and 2/4 at winning.

Then on Saturday they had more games, with free cards galore. Now I have a big box o cards again. This is what I plan to do instead of bowling, or cocaine.

Ah, look. G+ did almost the right thing with the link. Tiny picture and all.

I see that G+ won't let me make a big ole post with lots of embedded links. Lucky for me, if not so much you, I can put that post on my blogger page, and link to it here.
Try out Chromium OS, simplified. I got Chromium OS, which is the open source version Google's very new, runs only on the internet, Chrome OS. I ran around the internet finding files and resolving ...
