This weekend will include some serious geeking out. I picked up a few books from the Library at work:
- Visual Basic .Net Complete
- Introduction to C# using .Net
- Creative HTML Design
First task? Go crazy with style sheets. I’ve been aching to dig into CSS since I found the CSS Zen Garden earlier this month.
For those of us who like to do projects around the home but hate having to try to get things level Zircon has come up with a really cool product.Â
The Laser Vision Cube System (yeah, the product name is a bit wordy) is a great combination of several different technologies, it combines an auto leveling base with magnetic, laser generating cubes.Â The cubes come in three flavors, line, dot and cross.Â The base powers the cubes which project a laser line(s) or dot on your wall or ceiling.Â using the projected line you can line up pictures, shelves or any other item you wish to attach.Â
To use the LVQS you put the base unit on either a table or the optional pole mount.Â The unit will then automatically level the top surface.Â The top metal surface is one pole of the power source, drop a magnetic cube onto the top of the base and stick the wire from the cube to the side of the base and it’s ready to go.Â
Next time I have to put up a set of hooks and have to measure down from the ceiling or draw a line on the wall I’m going to wish I had this.Â Â

Here’s a really cool product for people who like to travel or who simply forget to water their plants: DriWater is a gel made of water and vegetable matter which, when it comes in contact with dry soil, will become water.
To use, simply water your plant well then wrap one of these gel-noodles around the base. DriWater comes in 30 and 90 day varieties as well as other flavors targeted at professionals.
