After playing around with Ubuntu a bit I decided to take the plunge and dual-boot my system with it. For the past month I have been running it daily and the experience has been amaizng. Everything runs much quicker than my Windows XP install and it has a ton of cool customiziable eye candy. Other than the fact that I can’t run Photoshop CS3 or Illustrator CS2 in Wine it is perfect for me. The fact I can’t run my image software really kills it however. What I really don’t understand is that Wine runs all my other Windows specific software perfectly. For the time being I am stuck booting back and forth between operating systems when I need to do graphics work.

I found this breakdown interesting. Looks like Firefox is the gold medal winner.

I’ve been watching this Australian company that makes modern style pre-built homes. It’s amazing what you can order to your door.

I love this short film beyond belief and thought I would share it here. Really cool.

These are actual directions to a party given to my girlfriend by a friend of hers. This is why I hate driving. It is a miracle I ever found this guys place. :-)

I was at an unnamed friend’s house last night and for some reason got the urge to sneak a peek inside her ice dispenser. This is the sort of creepy thing I do when bored out of my mind.

Here the thing is from the outside:

And here is what I found on the underside:

I sort of expected this and am not surprised. What I find more surprising is my continued consumption of water from this disgusting thing since finding out its secrete. Yummm!

It has taken a long while but after a million different designs, scripts, and ideas I have finally decided on something I can stand behind. Almost every project I start gets lost in my own indecision but somehow it seems like Slacktivate will finally make it out of my cycle of never ending development. A part of me wants to keep working on thinks but I know if I do it will never see the light of day. I’ve put together a series of images below so you can see some of the development cycle. I’m missing a few stages and designs but don’t think you’ll mind too much.



An early Slacktivate design attempt



A design I paid an artist to come up with



My early implementations never sat well with me



An original design I started work on to replace my earlier attempts



Another dramatically different direction I went towards



I finally come up with a look I like!



The first working prototype of Slacktivate

Ok, so I know you don’t care at all but I felt I needed to do something with all that stuff.
