Did you know that in IE (I'm using 6) even the scroll bars have context menus? I accidentally right-clicked the scrollbar, and it had options like Scroll Here, Top and Bottom. I don't know how many people would use it, but I think it's neat.

where do you want to go today?

Why of course, to the iLoo!!



No, I'm not dead yet. I'm just a little occupied with gathering enough will power to get myself to study, so we'll have to wait for the doctor episode a while.

That's it - I'm sick of it. It's been over a week now, and I've had enough of this frequent nose bleeding. Almost everyday. I've decided, enough of procrastination, time to go visit the Doctor. So wish me luck people, let's hope it's just a dry nose and not just Brain Cancer or Terminal Subliminal Haematoma or something like that. I ain't dying before a Ph.D.

A Heuristic Evaluation of the Usability of Infants:

Consistency and Standards: Most infants have similar requirements and error messages, and the same troubleshooting procedures work for a variety of infants. Cuteness is also an infant standard, ensuring that users continue to put up with the many user interface difficulties.

practical knowledge

The Compiler Design + Multimedia Applications practical exam went off without any major mishaps. Minor mishaps: The keyboard of the computer behind me got stuck with the chair, and flew off the desk when I turned. I had to do a clumsy dive-under-the-table action to save it. The external examiner gave me a weird look.

Then there was the multimedia program whose menus *just don't work*. Just one of those things that happen to perfect programs in crisis situations. I know my code, and I'm dead sure it was perfect, but it just didn't work! So I go out to drink water, and confirm the code with this friend, and the Compilers teacher sees me talking. Great, first of all, your code gives up on you, and then it also makes you look bad in front of everyone.
