Tall ships (porthole)

(no subject)

Anyone know of a decent PalmOS programming tutorial?

I've found that my Palm works excellently as a desk clock when sitting in the cradle (which conviently charges it as well), and of course I'm now tempted to stuff other functionality in to it. Current mad plan is to rig it as a control program for XMPlay, but of course to do that I need to be able to program the thing, and the only turotial I've managed to find uses obsolete dev tools (which makes using the GUI samples rather hard).
Tall ships (porthole)

Four things meme

Found while randomly bouncing round the internets.

Four jobs I've had in my life:
  • Computer programmer at ERA
  • Disc-packing monkey (what, you think they use machines to pack DVDs?)
  • Performance Improvements Project Officer (yes, that is the full job title) at ESCC
  • Design Engineer (basically, computer programmer)

Four movies I can watch over and over:
  • Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
  • Tomorrow Never Dies
  • The Matrix
  • Final Fantasy: Advent Children

Four TV shows I watch religiously:
  • Doctor Who
  • Top Gear
  • Spooks
  • BBC Breakfast
Yes, those are all in-house BBC programmes. I think that says something about the state of commercial television.

Four places I've been on holiday:
  • Cornwall
  • Northern Ireland
  • Spain
  • Portugal

Four favourite dishes:
  • Pizza! If I had to pick one, it'd be a real Margherita from somewhere that knows their pizzas
  • Roast beef, salad and salad cream white stick
  • Custard doughnuts. What, you meant only serious food?
  • Tuna and mozarella panini (used to eat those several times a week at university)

Four websites I visit daily:
There's a lot more than 4, but here's a few random ones

Four places I would rather be right now:
  • Falmouth
  • On a ski slope
  • Out walking
  • Out somewhere with friends

Four blogger designated "the next victims":
