Oh Captain!

Posted by Leesa on Aug 15, 2008 at 2:01 am

Not so many years ago, during the Perseid meteor shower, on this very day, our beloved Sundaynaut was born. And we’ve been counting the days to the apocalypse ever since.

From me and your entire crew: Happy Birthday to the finest captain in Starfleet!

our captain

We love you dood.

The Sound from Wind

Posted by Leesa on May 29, 2008 at 12:46 pm

The Sound From Wind by designer Joseph Kim is an awesome handle bar accessory for your bike that produces sound by funneling the air as you ride. You can control the notes by pressing keys on the device.

Wouldn’t it be great if it produced anything even resembling the creepy tones of this thing?

Farewell Gary Gygax

Posted by Leesa on Mar 4, 2008 at 3:14 pm

Gary Gygax, co-creator of D&D, died today.

I can’t tell you how much this guy did to help rescue me from an excruciatingly awkward childhood. Long before I was bolstering my ego by programming the c64 to say “hello”, I was rolling dice in a dark basement, avoiding getting my ass kicked with my chubby smarty pants friends. We found our pride where we could, and for us that was in a dungeon where for once we could claim we had some charisma.

It’s weird, just last night I was looking at this and thinking “maybe we should have a kid, just so I can put them in this”. Boohoo.

Level 1 Human

So let’s all pour a little mead for our homie.

Mobile Digital Pen

Mobile Digital Scribe

This thing looks fantastic. Mobile Digital Scribe from IOGear is a digital pen that acts like a regular ink pen but stores up to 50 pages of notes and doodles that can be uploaded to your computer later. If you have the transmitter attached to a computer your input will appear on you screen real time.

I wonder how accurate this thing is. I suspect the results when you upload the day’s notes might be pretty hilarious. But still, the thought of leaving the 5 pound laptop at home on the next away mission without winding up with a pocket full of shit scribbled on scaps of paper makes me seriously want to buy one of these… I’m still trying to find out if this thing will work on a Mac.
