Canvas, Ajax, and the Supertrain: Reloaded
To only a fraction of the human race does God give the privilege of earning one's bread doing what one would have gladly pursued free, for passion. I am very thankful. --The Mythical Man Month, p. 291

Lightweight Visual Thesaurus v0.2
I joined the canvas-developers
Yahoo! group a couple weeks ago. On Thursday, Benjamin Joffe posted an example of writing text to the canvas element. This had been my biggest frustration with canvas up to now, but Benjamin blew that problem away. I plugged his
CanvasRenderingContext2D.prototype.drawString function into The Lightweight Visual Thesaurus this morning, and bam! v0.2 was born.

Looking Back, Immediate Goals
I don't make new year's resolutions, but after reading a few resolution-ridden blog entries, I retrospected on 2005 and considered what's in store for 2006. I'm posting this stuff here so I can Google it whenever I need a bit of motivation.
My themes in 2005...
My goals for 2006...
- C.S. Lewis
- Public speaking

- Finish writing a book
- Learn about user interface design
