Microsoft would like you know that Natal will launch this October.Microsoft would like you know that Natal will launch this October.

Get your imaginary baseballs and soccer balls (anything imaginary will do really) ready because Project Natal will be available for your beloved Xbox 360 this October. Microsoft hasn't nailed down an exact date that month but they think they'll have that ironed out by the time E3 rolls around.

Need some icons for your next project? Smashing Magazine is here to help.Need some icons for your next project? Smashing Magazine is here to help.

Ah, icons - creating them can be a tedious process even for seasoned designers. Luckily, Smashing Magazine has given us all an arsenal of which to start from. Expect to see most of these icons (or slight variations of them) in iPhone apps, productivity software, and/or WordPress themes near you soon.

The iPad to start with 30,000 free e-books thanks to Project Gutenberg.The iPad to start with 30,000 free e-books thanks to Project Gutenberg.

Always dreamed of experiencing the thrill of reading Huck Finn on a certain magical unreleased tablet-type product? This news should make you quite happy. At least there won't be a shortage of stuff to read.

Daily Grind: Busy

Name: Vin (aka johnny six arms)
How Vin feels today: Busy @ 2:08:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: For fifty work projects to not suddenly fall out of the sky at once. Seriously, what the hell is going on?

Music Stuck in Head: Lovelight / Bonerama
I heard a rocking version of this tune on WFUV the other day - killer drum solo in there as well. I've been looking for it on iTunes but have yet to find it. Update: apparently their new album (which includes this cover) has this track - still not on iTunes though.

Stuff to do today:

  • Continue to watch hair fall out as projects continue to pile up
  • Organize said upcoming projects
  • Take deep breath
  • Ah, that's better

Daily Grind: Frenetic

Name: Vin (aka refresher)
How Vin feels today: Frenetic @ 2:40:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: So much work to do and only so much time to do it in. Although, it would probably help if I didn't volunteer unnecessary work for myself. Note to self: stop talking.

Music Stuck in Head: Bring Back the News / God Street Wine
This helps.

Stuff to do today:

  • Continue plugging away at overdue work projects
  • Attempt to post new photo to photoblog before the day is out
  • Thank Alpha for showing me the Internet phenomenon that is longcat
  • ...whats that you say? You don't know what that is?
  • Longcat is well, loooooooooooooooong
  • Get back to work

Seven photography projects to jumpstart your creativity.Seven photography projects to jumpstart your creativity.

An interesting set of ideas for shutterbugs (and other creative types) looking to do something a little different from the norm. I've always wanted to try to the 365 thing but laziness gets the better of me on day two.

Daily Grind: Energetic

Name: Vin (aka link posting madman)
How Vin feels today: Energetic @ 2:22:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Figure where this burst of energy has suddenly come from, maximize full coding potential from said burst.

Music Stuck in Head: Beverly Hill / Weezer
Mostly because it was on a recommended list of songs to get kids into music (I kid you not).

Stuff to do today:

  • Note excitement for new Monkey Island episode coming out tomorrow
  • Video preview is pretty funny
  • Note video makes a little bit more sense if you've played through first episode
  • ...also helps if you are a fan of the series
  • Move onto other topics
  • Figure out way to encourage people to comment more on GLM
  • Better content? Better badges? Create logins?
  • Suggestions appreciated
  • Twenty bucks says no one comments on this post

Latest version of Nikon Coolpix camera doubles as digital projector.Latest version of Nikon Coolpix camera doubles as digital projector.

...images were sharp when projected on a blank white surface about a foot away from the camera. The projector still produced visible images when projected onto a wall about 10 feet away, but they were (understandably) much less sharp and bright.

Daily Grind: Not bitter

Name: Vin (aka mr. approachable)
How Vin feels today: Not bitter @ 8:45:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To catch up on some work projects that are just little bit behind schedule. Also, the obligatory continuation of fixing bugs on this redesign - which seems to be getting less and less thankfully.

Music Stuck in Head: NICU / Phish
Play it Leo.

Stuff to do today:

  • Note the triumphant return of DotComic (look a couple posts back)
  • Draw up idea for next comic before idea falls out of head
  • Figure out why my xmlhttp requests are failing on Safari (and possibly other browsers)
  • @#%&**!
  • Debate going over to Blockbuster and renting the new Ghostbusters game
  • Figure out time in which to actually play said video game
  • Meh, reviews have been so-so anyway (again, look a couple posts back)
  • Note that 1 vs 100 on Xbox Live is actually kinda fun
  • If it goes to a pay model though, I don't think I'll be playing as much
  • ...
  • ...
  • (look a couple posts back)
