“Digital Pen Takes on Mouse”

June 15, 2004 - Categories: !Uncategorized

A team led by Dr. Jun Rekimoto at the Sony Interaction Laboratory has
devised a “pick and drop” method for transferring notes and files between
computers by selecting the information with a special pen and dropping it
onto the display of another machine simply by touching the screen. The pen …

That would be pretty cool, if pointing devices were computer-sensitive…

Carne Norte and scrambled egg for lunch

June 15, 2004 - Categories: !Uncategorized

Woke up too late (or lazy) to make pancakes this morning, so I
prepared lunch instead. There were strange insects in the rice. I
think I’ll have to throw it out. I decided to buy rice at the canteen
instead, so I packed viands. I fried the contents of a small can of
carne norte and one scrambled egg this morning. Brought it to school
in one of those handy airtight containers. Pretty good lunch. My first
foray into canned meat. Not bad for someone who’d never eaten corned
beef.

Forgot the container in school. Should remember to pick it up.

Cooked pasta for dinner. Funghi, aglio et olio. Fancy name for
mushrooms, garlic and olive oil. Should probably try button instead of
oyster, as oyster’s still a little slimy even when cooked.

Minced two extra heads of garlic and stored them in olive oil. The
next pasta dish will be easy to throw together as I have all the
ingredients necessary—even pre-sliced mushrooms.

Rustans sells microwave egg containers. I think I’ll get one on
Thursday. Must come up with a plan to finish the eggs. I think I’ll
have mushroom and cheese omelet for breakfast tomorrow, as I still
have half a can of oyster mushrooms.

Must remember to make significant inroads on eggs and potatoes.

Menu plan:

Wed breakfast Mushroom and cheese omelet
Wed lunch Rest of pasta and olive oil sauce, left-over mushroom and cheese omelet (if any)
Wed dinner At home
Thu breakfast At home
Thu lunch Luncheon meat and canteen rice
Thu dinner Potato soup and sausages (whoops, should probably cancel meeting if I’m trying a new dish. Can probably do lasagna rolls instead, as that was very nice last time)
Fri breakfast Twice-baked cheesy potato
Fri lunch Potato omelet (two birds with one stone!)
Fri dinner At home
