We’re about to hit the big 300 and we’re excited. I’m sure some of you are wondering what will happen next, if we’re planning anything huge. The answer is yes. Applegeeks is changing. And since I’m such a nice guy, here’s a sneak peek of the future…..

I have everything set and ready to do Applegeeks 7 days a week. With my iSight, I will take snapshots of my finger and use these templates to create the comic.

So there you have it, the future of Applegeeks. Excited?

So the mighty Google launched Writely, a free online word processor. It’s similar to Word, so you can type up your school report or blog into it. It saves the writing as a PDF or a RSS feed (wow cool). I’m sure it saves to other formats as well. Writely also has a collaborative editing feature, which allows multiple people to work on the same doc.

Right now the site doesn’t work in Safari, which I mainly use as a browser. My friend Josh tells me Safari doesn’t support a key javascript “thingy” that prevents WYSIWYG stuff from working.

What I find funny is that their redirect page doesn’t even work. I get an error message that says, “Safari can’t open the page. Too many redirects occurred trying to open ‘http://www.writely.com/?action=unsupported_browser’.”

Armed with Alias Sketchbook Pro and SnapProX, I created my first “How to draw…” movie. :P

TheThreadlesssale ended today.

Wanted to point outthis article. It speaks for itself. But for the record, yes, I do think it’s fucked up.

I posted an update over at my writing blog.

Saw Snakes on a Plane. Once the action gets going, it’s full-throttle, over the top all the way till the end.

Finally, I wanted to drop a link to Wapsi Square. I never really got a chance to look at it before, but I started reading it earlier this weekend, and didn’t stop till I’d read through to the end of the archive. It’s a lot of fun, the art develops visibly from beginning to current, and I adore the current style.

Remember the smackbook? The smackbook uses motion sensor to swap between desktops. If you don’t like the idea of smacking your Mac laptop to change desktops, try waving at your mac.

The inking for Issue 298 is finally done. Now all I have to do is scan it and color it. In the mean time, here’s another animation. Keep in mind I don’t have any animation background at all. Just like drawing, I’m teaching myself all this. I wish I went to a school that taught animation, I’m starting to like it.

Late meeting. Really tired. I’ll try to have something by the end of tomorrow.
