Library Life

So I haven't made any posts in the past few days. Lots of late nights camping in the library, sleeping in the dark corners. I'm surprised they're not charging me rent.

I was hanging out with my friend the other day, and we were talking about the Windows XP themes and how little you could really change them. He once showed me this program where you can convert your entire start menu into the Mac OS program bar, with all the fade-ins, and growing icons. It was pretty sweet, but alas, programmed in OpenGL. Unless you have a nifty little graphics card, running something in OpenGL is painfully slow. Also, the resources it eats up. Oh the poor little resources. So I had an idea:  "You know, if you made an active desktop, you could probably make your own thing with Flash, and it would be way faster than OpenGL." He laughed, agreed then looked at me and said "You're probably going to do that now, aren't you?". I laughed in acknowledgement.

So I started making a Mac OS program bar. I'm not putting a whole lot of time into it, so it's somewhat of a slow process as of yet. But it will get there - but also: yes, it's way faster.

But for now... back to essays.
