I’m selling a double-size, tri-fold, futon sofa-bed. The base is pine and Australian hardwood, and covered with a few coats of clear varnish. The futon is 100% cotton and comes with a nice dark chocolate coloured cover. It’s around 18 months old and has been very rarely used.
I was at Officeworks in East Perth yesterday and noticed that they have a couple of cheap monochrome laser printers on sale. I was in a bit of a rush and didn’t pay much attention, but I remember that one is a Brother for $149 and the other is a HP for $199.
I think that the Brother model is the HL-2040 which I bought earlier this year. I still haven’t had to change the toner and it works very well under Ubuntu.
The OpenGL hompage reports that the OpenGL BOF (Birds of a Feather) presentations from this year’s SIGGRAPH are available for download (as Powerpoint slideshows).
OpenGL 3 directions (Much leaner with a compatibility layer)
OpenGL New object model (Consistency… finally!)
OpenGL Upcoming features (Geometry shader, texture as table, conditional rendering)
OpenGL on Vista (After much fear and debate, I guess this is happening)
These presentations include information that people have been holding out for (the ARB have been very quiet for the last couple of years). However, due to the nature of the presentations, they are still fairly limited on details.
I feel a level of disconnect between her abstract argument and her assignment of roles, but Wafa Sultan makes a thought-provoking stance against fundamentalism:
The clash we are witnessing around the world is not a clash of religions, or a clash of civilizations. It is a clash between two opposites, between two eras. It is a clash between a mentality that belongs to the Middle Ages and another mentality that belongs to the 21st century. It is a clash between civilization and backwardness, between the civilized and the primitive, between barbarity and rationality. It is a clash between freedom and oppression, between democracy and dictatorship. It is a clash between human rights, on the one hand, and the violation of these rights, on other hand. It is a clash between those who treat women like beasts, and those who treat them like human beings. What we see today is not a clash of civilizations. Civilizations do not clash, but compete.
I think there is some sort of rule that states that we have to get these printed out in the largest size available from our local copy centre so that we can make huge versions to play out games “live action” style at various locations in Perth…
