I just wanted to extend my condolences to Douglas Engelbart and thank him for his glorious introduction to the mouse…yes, the computer mouse…you know, that little thing you use to move the pointer and clickety click click? While I certainly find that text commands work to my advantage as a much faster way of getting work done, I will happily agree that mouse is indispensable in the world of graphic arts! So Happy 40th Birthday little mousy. We look forward to all you bring us for years to come!
If you haven’t already checked them out over at Strands…maybe you should. It’s this new collaborative, all-together, social networking collection site…pretty cool. It’s in beta right now, but I think you can use the promo code for Boy Genius Report; just type in BGR under promo code.
After 13 years of walking around as a free man, OJ Simpson seems to be paying the preverbial piper now by being sentenced to 15 years for what would seem to be a petty crime. OJ felt it necessary to use violent force to retrieve what he calls his own personal property, but in the end, karma has just come back to bite him in the ass…big time!!
I’m going to make a bold prediction here. I by no means am hateful of OJ Simpson and honestly I have no real opinion about whether or not his case 13 years ago was inaccurately judged, however, I do believe there are still many people out there that feel begrudged by what happened. So it’s my prediction now that he will have no more than 6 months in prison before he has a violent encounter ending up in death. Again, I don’t wish any ill harm to the guy; I certainly don’t condone a murder by jailed criminals for a crime they most likely don’t know all of the facts about.
