Google Wave – coming a little bit too late for us

25/02/2010 at 5:21 pm (Uncategorized) (, )

Just few weeks ago we had Buzz… now they plan on giving us Wave.

I actually love the sound of it… suffered the lack of it last year. Now they’re planning to give it. Hopefully I’ll manage to get into some group project that makes use of this 🙂 Else I’ll be stuck playing games in that too….

Anyway, if you’re interested check it out here.

You can also use it at this beginning stage if you’re invited. They also have forms to sign up yourself or your domain till more Google Wave invitations are available.

Would love to have it available soon…

Graduation

18/02/2010 at 8:28 pm (Uncategorized) (, )

Here’s the Day
that we celebrate
how far we have come and
a milestone which reminds us
to embrace all exciting things
that are still on the way!

Today the 2006 batch of Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology (SLIIT) graduated 🙂 Congrats to all of you… Those were the best (and craziest) years of my life!

For all the other SLIIT students I’d like to say something…. Find out batch mates whose first names – I mean the long name(s) in front of their known name – start with the same letter as yours. Build a good friendship with them too.

There are many wonderful things about Fairyland (on facebook) One of them is the text art fairies (we) use as comments/post when they water in another garden.

Here’s a collection of some of my favourites…. None of them are mine….  this is going to be a long post with time…

If they look a tiny bit skewed, no worries… that’s because of the line spacing here. On fairyland they look perfect.

Here’s another post from my blog – More Text Art From Fairyland – featuring other places where you can find extensive collections of text art.

While you’re waiting for creatures take a look in this post in the forums  🙂

Buzz (Google)

11/02/2010 at 4:47 pm (Uncategorized)

Did anyone check out Buzz today? Looks like it’s getting a lot of negative feedback…. as a facebook user, I don’t wonder….

When looking at some status messages my friends post, my fingers itch to comment on them, or ‘like’ them the way we do on facebook. But is it really necessary to have something like Buzz for that?

Why not introduce something new and creative rather than giving us facebook wall in it’s most basic form?

If they salvage something good out of Buzz, I’m ready to turn it back on!

There are many ways of serving cakes at a wedding. Several styles to wrap the cakes, boxes folded from cardboard, little baskets, small bags the list goes on…

Some people buy these while some make them… For people like that there’s a solution with origami. Find them here.

Origami Rose :)

01/02/2010 at 8:46 pm (Paper Crafts) (, , , , , )

The best way to start February  🙂   is by folding an origami Rose…

Here it is…

I used the cover of Cargills Christmas catalogue. It is printed on a glossy and thick paper. Using thick paper is important because this rose requires many creases and some complicated folding.

Directions on how to make this is in my earlier post, and I encourage everyone to make a rose 🙂

With a little patience a pretty rose will bloom 🙂
