xkcd inspired Blackberry keyboard prediction


I did the same exercise as above with the predictive text on my Blackberry Playbook. I got this:

Say hello to my wishlist A new report by the way we can help you find the best way to get the school uniform turned around and see if you are available in the UK AND IRELAND THE

Toto, I've a feeling we're not going to be at Wycliffe! That should be fun to be awriger 9780749011352

Bond, James Bond with the latest news and information on the screen and the other day and night and I am hoping to get the school uniform 

I'm a leaf on the wind. Watch this space for the first time Monday morning close to the people who gave him ideas and I was surprised at how many weren't his own words of the most important thing is that the information you need to tell you that you can get the gps

You can see that it quickly gets to some stock phrases, and that it's learning from what I actually type, like Wycliffe and that long number which is an ISBN.

Cardboard seven inch tablet stand

When I got a Playbook I wanted to use it to listen to BBC iPlayer while doing the washing up. So I made a cardboard tablet stand out of the cardboard you get with new shirts.

Recently I came across a video by Jude Pullen showing how to make a right angle joint with card and it inspired me to share what I'd done, via a PDF rather than a video though.

The PDF below is for a Playbook but I would have thought that any seven inch tablet, like the Kindle Fire or the Google Nexus 7 would fit. If in the unlikely event they are more chunky than the Playbook, you can just cut the slot wider. It's probably more sturdy if you make it out of a corrugated cardboard.

20 years of blogging: First post

Back in 1999 it mostly cost money to run a blog (from what I can remember). You had to sort out your own hosting. Then Dave Winer made on offer on his blogging platform editthispage.com for a 60 day free trial, so I was away. So what was my very first post? What words did I choose to post for all on the internet to see?
 23 December 1999 I'm stil trying to decide what to do with this. Click on the skull to add your suggestion. Oh, that's not very good is it. A typo in the second word too. The URL was morrissfamily.editthispage.com. (I think. Everything I say could be unreliable, because it was a while ago.) I also created an FAQ page that day:

Who are the Morriss family? We are just a normal family with a dad who likes exploring the internet.Why don't you have more information? Because I'm not sure want I want to do with this site. I think there are no typos there. The idea was that I would share family news. Come back in January to see what my next post was.

20 years of blogging: fourth post

4/1/2000 Things are moving We've had the letter from Wycliffe about "raising support".  They want us to aim that 25% of our income comes from other people by the end of a year, and 50% by the end of two years.  Other news: I've officially asked for voluntary redundancy Spoiler: after 4 years of trying I didn't even get to 20%, so I was paid a salary after all.
