Loooong weekend extra

It’s been one long holiday weekend for me. I’ve got a few interesting tidbits on the tips line, and it’s time to clear em out. (Thanks to my Father in Law who came to visit and re-painted my kitchen while I hauled no less than 800 lbs of scrap lumber from my driveway)

If you’re a Nintendo DS fiend, you might dig this app that [xfiles.fan] sent in. It’s an IP based clone of the DS’s built in chat program. The upshot is that you can chat with anyone on the internet. (I just use IRC, but this is good if you can’t get to a server.)

[Aaron] sent in the lastest version of his olympus E10 remote cable. Good for those shots that require some distance or just hands free to eliminate the shakes.

[theprojectmaker] has an interesting writeup on making water color effects on digital photos using analog (post printing) techniques. It looks like you can do some things that even PhotoShop can’t accomplish, since you’re not limited by the pixel.

[Dean] sent in his aluminum iBook picture frame after he noticed a mention in our Laptop HackIt asking for it.
