Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating slightly. And when I say "slightly", I mean "completely". Though I have seriously spent too much time staring at screens recently. If nothing else I'm doing well on WhatPulse.
Problem is, once I code something new, it becomes a toy and I can't stop playing with it until it meets some definition of perfect, and by then I've spent a whole hour messing with one variable or something.
...and I'm hoping that by making this really easy we'll get viral or something. Ah well, I can dream.
Also, I had the clever idea of shining a light directly in my eye. Saying that implies there's a really good explanation to follow, but there isn't one.
I just wanted a new photo for my about page and my MySpace profile, and I thought that if everybody else was taking crap photos I might as well join them. So I got the lighting wrong, the angle wrong, and the hair wrong, and started taking random photos.
Most of the photos I take get deleted, usually 'cause I'm pulling a face that means it takes around two and a half seconds for me to realise I don't want the picture anywhere near the Internet. However, I actually like one of the pictures...
...though I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because the lighting means you can't see me properly, or because I have a glint in my eye that wouldn't be there if it wasn't for the 50-watt bulb two feet away from my face. Whatever. Oh, and no, I don't need a haircut.
You are quite teh photographer / Comment from Gill on 17 Dec 2006 at 17:27.
Wow! Nice script there Rob, planning on releasing it?
Could do with something like that :) / Comment from Dan on 21 Dec 2006 at 01:14.
Thanks. I guess I could release it, but then I keep saying that about stuff and never get around to it.
I should probably just dump all the Numbcast source somewhere anyway, maybe someone will find a function or two useful... / Comment from Robert Marshall on 21 Dec 2006 at 01:39.
