Some weird thoughts

Okay, I was thinking about computers. Computers and printers that is. Let's say you have 1 printer on the network, printerA. You have two computers. PC1 and PC2. PC1 sees the printer and calls it 'Joe's printers'. PC2 sees the printer as 'LaserJet 45000'. But they are both talking about the same printer.

K. Now let's think about us, and how we see color. I look at something and say 'that's blue'. You look at that and say 'that's blue'. Fine, we're talking about the same color. Once upon a time somebody else told us it was blue and that's what we know.

But how does our brain interpret that color. If I was to look from inside your brain through your eyes, does your brain interpret that color the same mine does. Let's say I look through your brain but the blue item appears as my red.

Follow? It doesn't matter how our brain interprets the color, as long as it interprets the colors differently. We associate a name with that interpretation. As long as we all call blue blue, it doesn't matter how our brain interprets the color. Our brain takes the signals from our eyes and stores that. Does everybodies blue get stored the same? I don't think so. Maybe the same general way, but not exactly.

Then there are sounds...

New eBook reader, really looks like paper!

This looks cool! I've been wanting a 4x5 or so sized screen for a PDA for a while, since I've had my first PDA. The screen is just a little small on most of them. This one only does e-books and documents, but it's a step.

Who wouldn't want this car?!

Yea, I got the post from Slashdot, but who wouldn't want this car!

In other news, we installed Data.Match. I am trying to refine the installation tho. Also fixing bugs as we find them, but most of it is visual changes. Very few bugs thanks to Dino!

Is it Monday already?

Let's just sum up... today hasn't been going all that well. A day that includes being late for work, a funeral, my car breaking down, my project not working for no explainable reason (Explained here) and two other projects that were needed last week.

All this after a weekend that left me saying, WHAT WAS THAT?!?!

All this typing is making me dizyy........jkdafj;of bn

Time for more posts

Once again, I feel the Web site is ready. I now move back to DataMatch. I am documenting more. Trying to keep things neat and tidy so that when I need to get help I can show people what I am talking about. Anybody know a good way to put Powerpoint slides on a web site?

Eager Beaver Slashdotter

Check this out: Developing Open Source Defense Projects.

I doubt he would get help. However, I'm curious, as I've often thought of developing a roof mounted rocket launch system for those people who just don't want to get out of the way. I could also install it on the trunk for tailgaters... ;)

And before you sic the cops on me... I'm only kidding. It's April 1st dontcha know.
