toys - Have I said the cheapie backordered Palm IIIc showed up on my doorstep? It did, couple days ago, along with a delivery dude and a clipboard to sign. I can now belatedly confirm all the things everyone has said before, which is, they are nice for gaming, really ideal in dark rooms, no use whatSOever in bright sunlight of course, and the "regular" writerights really-truly will make your brain explode (I will have time to pick up some "color" writerights this weekend, I hope, which a friend says are all-around better than the current "regular" ones anyway; will find out if the 12pack I bought like 3 years ago ever runs out). Also, the iiic definitely has a larger feel than my Visor Deluxe (it's green but not jealous). A fine test unit. I feel all serious or something, having spare hardware to test on. Luxury! [insert Monty Python skit here]

whack-a-mole debugging - Still working on getting the 0.25 alpha of iLarn ready for takeoff as described in a previous entry. Aw, heck, maybe I should just release tonight; it wouldn't be an alpha if there weren't still some bugs, right? (On the gripping hand, not sure I feel like putting in the effort of a release right now, when it could be put off til the weekend, and give me a really weak excuse to continue putting off yard work.)
