As a consolation prize for getting a root canal in the morning, I bought a Diamond BVU195.

I see you shudder but it's surprisingly non-sucky.

So now I can connect a second external monitor to my mac... VIA a USB port... Ooooh yeah....

Naturally this means I plugged in the pair of 3D goggles I've had sitting about for a while I rarely used them because I had to unplug my 23" display to plug them in. Now I can use them without doing that. So maybe I'll finally get around to doing some development with them.

In the meanwhile, I did set them up on SecondLife with a 3DConnexion 6-axis mouse so I could wander around like a huge dork.

Tomorrow I may fiddle with using them with Illustrator or photoshop. They have a mouse cursor built into them that runs off the tilt. I can possibly patch it to make my image pan around so that whereever I'm looking is always the center of the screen. Though I'll probably have to damp it some to keep it from zipping around when I'm looking at menus.

But I'll see how I feel after I get a root fir thing in the morning. :P

Next time someone says something is about as much fun as a root canal, don't let them fool you.

I just spent the last year of my life working on a DMCA project and by comparison, the Root Canal was way more fun!

From the x-rays, the nerve in my tooth was dead. My dentist assured me this was true and so, with some skepticism, I let her drill a hole in my tooth WITHOUT anesthetic. Not even local.

She was right. It in fact did not hurt. I feel totally hardcore! Or at least I would but I sort of chickened out after the initial hole was done and she numbed up the root to finish the procedure.


I have to go back on Monday to get a permanent plug to the hole. In the meanwhile... Mmmm. Antibiotics.



BTW, I should note for the sake of total honesty that the tooth in question was a front tooth and due to damage, not a molar (which is more complex and painful, I'm told)

Still. ... I HAD A HOLE DRILLED IN MY TOOTH WITHOUT ANESTHETIC. O_O
