Print what you like

Printwhatyoulike.com I hadn’t heard of this cool web app before this weekend. I was on a long drive and couldn’t find anything on the radio—except the Kim Komando show. I don’t enjoy the show at all. The hostess, Kim, appears to be bought by Microsoft. Almost every answer leads back to MS and even when a caller is Mac oriented Kim seems unable to take MS out of the equation (in the spirit of full disclosure—if she was a Mac fan, these actions wouldn’t bother me.) So, while I was hearing it; I wasn’t exactly listening. That is until I heard a discussion on printers. This was about printing body parts. (I know this is bad of me, but I can’t even bring myself to link to her website. So, she’ll have to make do with a mention.) Anyway, I had heard about it before and had forgotten—until this show.

Well, after a few moments the show moved on to printing and saving ink and this is where the aforementioned website comes into play. It is a great tool if you only want to print specific parts of a site—which helps to save ink. Check it out: www.printwhatyoulike.com.

It’s OK, okay?

OK. So, I was in a conversation last week with a co-worker and the discussion lead to wondering where the word “OK” came from. Tonight, I was checking my Feeds and DaringFireball had a post that lead to a BBC article about OK.

OK allows us to view a situation in simplest terms, just OK or not.

Read up on it. Okay?
Was that one too many? I knew it was pushing it. I just couldn’t help myself. O…

Mo’Real

Love drawing on a mobile device? If you haven’t found a stylus that works best for you maybe you can help fund one on Kickstarter: Enter the More/Real stylus.


The video could have been more about the stylus and actual sketching, but it shows that there is a comfortableness to the sketching using familiar tools. I think I like it.

I just wish Apple would built in touch sensitivity that can be enabled in applications, but that isn’t always on. That would turn Wacom on its head.

Dwight A. Pryor

February 5, 2011By jaymiscelany, religion

Today (February 5th, 2011), around noontime, a mentor, a friend, and a father has stepped into the Great Sabbath and entered into the Long Awakening. I am deeply indebted to him and his work. There will be many others who will more ably write about Dwight, so, I won’t venture onto their terrain. However, I will say this one thing that meant so much in my life: He remembered. He remembered conversations we had even if years spanned the times-in-between. That alone, something I struggle to do with only hours later, won him a place in my heart and life. My family will miss his place in our lives. His wife, Keren, and son, Ben, who are also so dear to us, will be in our prayers for peace.

This is my simple memorial. Rise and Shine, Dwight, Your Light has Come.

However, I can’t help but hear Steve Jobs’ voice in pushpoppress’ site copy—only they left out “magical”.
