What luck!

Seems I have evolved into both an early riser and a night owl.  Not something ultimately sustainable.

Hopefully this will resolve.

I've gotten a new toy lately, I am going to be online English courses (took three tries to type English....let's hope I do better in the videos) so I had to get some updated software.....nothing like four new programs simultaneously, not to mention the other programs I looked at and rejected.

I also got a funk little gadget called a 'Bamboo pen' which lets you write onto the computer with a pen jobbie...not something that is widely useful, but for making the courses, it can be pretty cool.


I'll show you a page of the course when I get there.  I can write rather more neatly when I'm not balancing the pad on my arm.......

Back to expanding/bending my brain around these programs...

Have a good one,

O

weeeell, with the pen, and the screencasting software, you could screencast yourself making art. How cool is that?

Although I’m not a gadget person, that Bamboo pen appeals to me – what I’d actually use it for, I’m not 100% sure. I checked price and availability on-line. Not a bad price. Should I treat myself to one? The internal debate continues...

Super cool! Now I want a pen, too, even though I know it's just another gadget I don't really need.

Looking forward to hearing more about the English courses as they progress.

ElP, that's a thought, though it is a little difficult writing with the pen... I am thinking that I am going to have to do the artwork for the courses...it is tricky finding photos.....

The bamboo pen is neat......and kinda fun. It also comes with some cool software, the mac has an ink program, that I think would let me do handwriting anywhere, I have to investigate further. The only problem is my handwriting!

JG, it is cool....more of a gadget, but cool.
