I am currently wandering as to the details of a possible plugin pack:

  • [*:19ggxcs4]Would it include frequently-changing plugins - such as custom brushes?
    [*:19ggxcs4]Would it include the plugins that threaten my reputation - such as EasyWatermark?

Your Thoughts?

I'm on the verge of creating a new sig thanks to Wither. And if you're wondering, the answer is yes, the plugin census concept is back. Although, this entire sig may be scrapped if it doesn't look good in my opinion.

I have written ~20 plugins and put about half of them in my plugin pack. I just picked stuff that I thought people would actually use. Then, I eliminated a few that MadJik has rewritten and included in his own pack.

Off-topic: I wish that someone had invented a real sonic screwdriver. Well, someone probably has, I haven't actually searched for it yet. :D Wouldn't it be great, though? Of course, it would only have minor settings, because we don't want our windows getting broken, do we? :D

That would be fun, but I don't think we've got the technology to make it turn screws effectively...and it'd probably have to be, like, plugged into a nuclear reactor or something...

Oh, I didn't mean to make screws turn! Although that would be good... No, I meant as though unlocking locks and stuff. Also, on the fourth result I think it is for a Google of "real sonic screwdriver", here's an article why your idea wouldn't work.

Well, if low settings includes being able to make ATMs spew cash, I want one :P

Ok so I got my laptop. I got a MacBook Pro 2.4ghz. Nice to get the 8% "corporate or government" discount (Microsoft), and have it be tax deductible :twisted:

Meh. Should have waited for the quad notebooks that will be out shortly.*

*You didn't hear that from me.

So, have you actually gotten it or is it on its way? I am interested to see if you throw Windows on Boot Camp and test out Paint.NET on it. Those would be some fun comparissons to make.

I have it. I went to the Apple store in Bellevue. I was looking online at a refurb white MacBook for $1099 (vs. msrp of $1299) but those don't have the multitouch trackpads and I would love to make use of that in PDN 4.0 ... somehow.

I just finished writing a biography of Robert Frost, the poet, for ELA homework. It was boring. Now I have to work on my "The Odyssey" project. Blech, I had too much homework tonight.

In other news, I've been doing a stock-trading game on Wednesdays for the past month or so, it's a nation-wide thing. Check out it's website Here.

Edit: Here are my account holdings, they aren't that great, but we're doing okay overall (we being me and my other two buddies, one being Acim, the one that I mention a lot).

Nice job--So far, we've lost 100,000 dollars, and have 100,000 left in equity. Right now, we have about 1,000 dollars. But, we could make (if we sold right now) 6 grand off of First Solar (FSLR), and 7 grand off of Visa (V). We bought 800 shares of Visa, and our vice principal (the guy that is running the Stock Market Game program for us) had a sputtering attack when we told him. You kind of had to be there, but it was great.

@livewrong811: Pst! Invest in popular diet programs! alli happens to be going pretty well. Oh, and just a little heads up, Apple was the fastest growing company in the world for 2007, and it doesn't look like they're slowing down for 2008.

It also helps to invest in booming technologies like solar and nanotech.
