Sorry there haven’t been any posts recently, i’ve been very busy with my project open day looming.

I’ve been designing a Poster in A1 on Photoshop CS2, i’m taking it to get printed tomorrow, i have also bought 20 Business card CDs, and will be printing and burning them over the weekend.

I finally got a couple serial ports for my pc as well, thank you eBay!

Program-wise i’ve put it to one side while i work on the poster. I have lots of ideas for it tho and over the weekend i will be completely recoding it in a much better style with some additions and features that should improve it considerably in time for my openday. I may even release a demo on Atariboy.co.uk, which btw is getting redesigned next week to advertise me as a programmer, i will be putting a link to it on my business card CD so i want it to look professional.

Thanks to Crazy’s guide i have successfully 2 typo blogs, one for Rappy, and one for Lauren who is now calling herself Atarigirl :)

I’ve been using soley Gtalk for 3 days now, it works beautifully, but i have missed the group convos. I’ve also discovered that instant messengers do not help you do anything! I’ve been closing Gtalk when ever i want to do some work because you can guarentee that someone will talk to you just when you are concentrating.

I’ve also been comunnicating a lot more by email, with people who havnt switched and people that dont use IMs, and i’m finding it very refreshing compared to the drawnout IM convos i’ve been having recently.

I’ve been using Bon Echo all day (current feature incomplete alpha release) there are not many noticable changes, but the few that have been implemented are very good. Seperate close buttons on every tab and better history and bookmarks. I had a read thru the Road map earlier today and its looking very promising, i cant wait till june for a feature complete beta.

  3. Woo I got llinked. I feel all special. Anyway, when you say business card, as in e-Business cards? How much are they btw?
    I liked the poster when I saw it, but why PS CS2? I for some reason prefer CS. I find it loads faster on both my Mac and Windows PC.
    Loving that Lauren is to be refers to as atarigirl, great logos.

  4. Because CS2 is newer :P

    I dont use it that much really, not being a graphic designer and all, so i jsut grabbed the newest one available.

    the business card shaped CDs cost £5 for 10, 50p each i guess
