Clear proof of Japanese technological superiority: soy sauce-dispensing chopsticks.

Does anyone know what the real differences are between Wacom's different lines of tablets? There's the Volito2 at the low end (for which no OS X support is provided), as well as the Graphire and Intuos series.

"Bamboo Munch", one of the finest red panda pics I've seen.

Dolphins can't suck. So newborns have to form a watertight seal around the nipple, and let their mother actively squirt the milk out.

Fun flash animation (2.3MB) for the day, by Lupus Wolfe, illustrating the composition of a particular final piece. Not work-safe. ^_^

Apparently, some trees have good credit.

Why do so many people talk about "reality TV", when it's nothing of the sort? (Same reason "infomercials" are named thusly, despite a negative quotient of information)

Rather unfortunate that V for Vendetta couldn't have been released (or rather, wasn't - AFAIK, it's all ready) on Nov 5 after all; IMDb's now showing it as due around March 17. Still, the trailers suggest it might be worth catching; I think I prefer the first one, but the second puts the setting into greater context. (If you have a reasonably recent system and good display, try the HD versions)

Dinner was quite satisfying, and simple: a little water and the contents of a small package of asparagus tips, baby corn, and mangetout, microwaved for two minutes, then some instant chicken & mushroom soup powder added, plus a little sriracha and soy sauce. While that was going on, I had a dozen battered chicken nuggets under the grill, which were duly escorted to the top of said soupy greenery. Tasty enough that I forewent the Rochefort 8 until I'd finished it all off. ^_^
 
 
 
 
 
 
*grin* No problem. ^_^

Indeed - looking at the specs, it seems the Intuos offers 1024 pressure levels, versus 512 for the Graphire. Resolution's different too, with 5000dpi vs 2000dpi; and there's a variety of nibs listed for the Intuos, whereas the Graphire only seems to have the one as supplied.

I'd basically be wanting to try getting back into drawing - pencil's fine (I usually go for 0.5 or 0.3mm HB mechanicals), but there's obviously great flexibility in being able to directly apply Potatoshop tools, rather than fuss around with scanning and playing around with the trackpad thereafter. (Maybe I'll even wind up drawing myself! I've never done that, as I've never really been sure exactly what I look like, especially now)
