I came up with an interesting (I think) idea for a clock. I made a quick proof-of-concept which you can download here: mouseclock.exe. When you run it, it registers “CTRL+T” as a system-wide hotkey, and when you press it, it “writes” the time onto the screen with the movement of the mouse cursor. It does it in my handwriting by the way, done with a simple motioncapture program I wrote as well (which you’re welcome to download), and I’ll admit that I didn’t really go to very much effort in making sure my handwriting was neat. But as a proof-of-concept I really had fun putting this together and I hope it amuses someone. If anyone is actually weird enough to think it’s useful, I’ll happily clean it up and maybe even integrate the mouse recorder a bit more nicely so that you can program it with your own handwriting.
Other than that, and much more excitingly, we’re headed off to the airport to pick up Nefarious shortly, which means that we finally get to open our Christmas presents. I also have a package waiting for me at the post office for tomorrow, so the presents don’t end tonight. They should have though, because there was an “attempted” delivery note on the front door, and we’ve been here all day and there was no doorbell ringing. I think a lot of the time they just knock and don’t push the button, which is kind of annoying since the door is too far away to hear. I think I’m going to put a really obvious note on the front door that points at the doorbell and says “hey! please ring this if you want my attention!” or something.
