Good Enough

Saying something is good enough when it could be better is like cutting your life short because you're satisfied with what you've already experienced.

There doesn’t have to be a why, but there has to be a reason.

Looking for a Better CD Pen

July 3rd, 2009 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

  You’d think the hard part about burning CDs or DVDs is getting the software to burn right or the disc to play back.  After spending about just 5 minutes to finish off the DVD and burn it, the part that seems to take the longest is actually labeling the disc.  The darn pen won’t work on the disc even if I just used it less than a minute ago.

Have to sacrifice one disc to scribble on and get the ink flowing before I label the other.

  Currently, I have 3 Sharpie CD pens on my desk, none of which appear to be working.  They’re of the twin-tip variety (using the fine tip so I can write more on the disc).  I know there’s ink in them because writing with the bold tips work just fine on any surface.  The worst part is the third pen just came from a fresh box, so it hasn’t been overused at all.

  I’ll probably go find another brand, but it seems like such a miniscule problem.  Normally, I’d search on Google to find out what’s a better option, but it doesn’t look like there are any reviews on a better pen (too small an issue).  You know all those tutorials about burning discs with the best brand drives and discs and software etc? They should probably add another step - the best brand pen.  All I want is a pen that works so I can write on the DVD and be done with it.  Bah!

In the Face of Danger

It’s fun to laugh in the face of danger because danger has no face.

Image Resources

Resources and tools for creating images, video, and more...

     Below are some useful sites to look at if you make any visual form of multimedia.  Usually, I will try to list only free sources rather than those that require a subscription.

Multitasking is the desperate attempt to be a part of everything and nothing at the same time.

If you have to be trained to recognize something of value, it just isn’t that valuable.

Reading Memory

June 27th, 2009 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

  First Image of Memory Being Made - I completely mistook the headline for implying that memory can be translated to an image (photo, scan).  For a moment, I thought we’d actually be able to scan our minds soon and save images off of them. :P

  Guess that’s a little bit further in the future since they’re just now figuring out what memory in the brain even looks like (not the memory itself but the part of the brain that holds the memory - which isn’t really what the memory looks like but the memory container looks like… kinda like memory cards I guess - ack, confusing terms!).  I guess perhaps in the short term future, we can look forward more on learning to increase our memory or enhance.

  Maybe one day we can buy extra proteins to enlarge our memory capabilities! :D (though I wouldn’t want a bigger head as a result of it)

  Still, I’d really like to be able to make any image or sound just by thinking it - actually have some machine read the memory off my mind.  That would be useful…

Losing work over something stupid is like dying abruptly because you forget to eat.

Life is easy. It’s just when you do something you think is impossible - things get a lil’ hard.
