I just found out that I can use my optical mouse while hovering about 1/2 centimetre from the table!

(yeah, I'm bored)

yes, the amazing feeling of freedom is set back only by the fact that your arm aches after 30 seconds...

<sigh>

I know...

I do have lots of excuses, though:

I'm still in the middle of moving, my computer's in a mess, it would involve sorting out my disk space, programs and folders, and I also do coding 5 days per week full time...

Let's see. August *should* be a bit better...

Yeah, I know you have some good excuses, it's me who doesn't!

So when do you get your new computer?

I wish I was doing coding 5 days per week. Currently, I'm doing C++ 5 hours per year. Maximum.

Yeah, we're working on a little something-something and I've been doing some today since I've taken today off to wait for our new car to be delivered. We've decided to go off on a bit of a tangent to 'normal' means of programming, by making the entire program web-based.

The idea is that we would have a central server in a hotel (which could also be a client too) that hosts the database and the application, then you can have as many clients as required (e.g. one in the office, one or two in reception, etc.)

I think it's nice to get away from traditional 'windows' programming, since it won't tie the user into a particular OS.

That, and you can create much better interfaces in HTML than VB, which are instantly usable to anyone who's ever surfed the net before.

I think it's a cool idea and... ooops! my cars just arrived..!! :o)))))
