AAAAAAGH!! Something about Kid Rock in a cut-up American flag, preceded by the lamest set of artists they could possibly think up, that just further affirms my prior belief that CBS sucks. Only in Houston. Really. Think about it...

And wow, what perfect timing: Janet Jackson. Gee, wonder why? Justin Timberlake certainly seemed to enjoy being on stage with her, though.

Oh, and here I am, watching the Superbowl with our entire youth group at church. And there's Justin and Janet, gettin' it on. And hey, quite the ending there - wow.

Great. Just great. The game means nothing, but suddenly halftime is the most important thing on the face of the planet. These kids are all over it. We've got twelve year old boys hollering for others to get out of the way just in case there's more Janet Jackson on the screen. No such luck, kids. Maybe next year.

Very Interesting - more on OneNote blogging trials

Saturday, January 31, 2004

So, this is cool - it basically works. I do see that the .one file is not properly attached, and unfortunately I can't figure a way for OneNote to make a selection of text hyperlinked. Instead it just lets you paste the link in (which it then links correctly: http://www.greghughes.net/rant/default.aspx).

 

So I guess I should try to paste an image in, see what that looks like. After all, if you're gonna blog from OneNote, might as well take it to the next level, eh?

 

 

(I should probably leave here soon, since Tim's waiting for me in Seattle, hahahah… Nah, blogging is more important… :) )

 

Handwriting too eh? NIFTY!

 

So - for those of you wishing you could blog from OneNote - You can!

 

More to come later - need to try voice recordings/annotations, make the .one files actually work (probably a dasBlog or a server MIME type change, I would guess), and figure out how to hyperlink text somehow. Oh and see how things like highlighting text and stuff comes out.

Blog entry directly from OneNote

Saturday, January 31, 2004

5:16 PM

 

So, I have seen a number of people wishing in various blog comments here and there that they could create blog entries directly from OneNote. So, I am trying that here, not knowing whether it will actually work or not. :)

 

In theory, it should: I am typing this in OneNote (will have to try handwriting next if this works), and I'll do just as I have in the past as far as posting directly from the TabletPC using inked content: I’ll use OneNote's Outlook 2003 integration to convert automatically to HTML and send a properly-formatted to the dasBlog software on my server.

 

Will be interesting to see what happens!

 

Edit: Some inspiration here. :)

Mary Jo Foley of Microsoft Watch asks us the most important question of the week:

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and presidential-hopeful Howard Dean: Separated at birth? "Monkeyboy" Ballmer and "Ranter" Dean have more in common than meets the eye.

True. True.

Looks like Mikerowesoft has resolved its complaint against...

No, wait...

Looks like Microsoft has resolved its complaint against 17-year old Mike Rowe. Well, that's good. I mean, it was such a confusing name and all. Sheez. Gimmee break. Plz.
