Google Reader and other news

Google released a new web app today, Reader. Its an RSS reader that is linked with your gmail/google account. I played with it a little earlier on, to see how it looked and worked, and its very nice.

This weekend should be nice. Last night we went to 80s night again at Mars Bar, and had quite a bit of fun. Today wasnt much except work. Tomorrow im sleeping in for sure though. Once Deborah gets off, were going over to courtney’s to help her fix her computer. Debs and I are going to go try to see the Corpse Bride tomorrow night, and then I dont know what we are doing.

And of course, more programing! The project got moved back by 5 days, but I still want to get it done as soon as possible.
