Decipher the magic message
It’s provincial election day in BC, and whether you find it all a big snore or are simply not thrilled with the process, today’s your opportunity to do something.
Get out and vote – it’s fast and easy and it’s actually kind of fun. You’ll even get a sticker, and you can put it anywhere you like.
The polls are open until 8pm.

EB and I spent a fabulous day sailing Howe Sound – my rather lame mother’s day gift to her.
The sound was picture perfect, with some high thin overcast causing a slight ring around the sun.
There was a sweet inflow that had us humming at 5.5 to 6 knots to weather, with Madsu right in the slot the boat was made for, heeled between 15 and 20 degrees, the 150 genoa driving us to weather with a nice steady motion through the chop.
We beat for about an hour and a half or so, tacking to follow the wind shifts, with hardly any traffic. Lots of harbour seals were popping up so the feeding must be good.
On the way back I ran dead downwind for quite a long time, my back to the pushpit and my feet up. I was pretty close to nodding off, as it warmed up considerably as was ran wing on wing. Great was to spend the day.

Taking a Wave Break as I work on a podcast
I’m trying out Robo.to. It makes adding a video avatar really simple, as well as feeding simple text updates to Twitter and Facebook.
The whole idea is that it’s a very simple tool that only adoesa a coupel of things – taking a cue I think from Twitter’s popularity.
Here’s my looping-waving-blinking-avatar from the page I set up. You record the vid-avatar right from the app – in my case using the MacBook’s built in camera.
This little flash snippet loops the video and updates the status updates I do when logged on at Robo.to.bisnit, nifty.
I’ve popped it into my sidebar via a text widget.
As I update the Robo.to status, it updates my Twitter feed, Facebook page and also displays my Flickr feed.
Really nifty how all these apps are starting to interact.
