Doctor Who novels app

After quite a bit of manual data entry (and also thanks to the fans who painstakingly collected all the information prior), I have finally completed the spreadsheet for the list of Doctor Who novels. This forms the backend to Google Visualisation APIs which in turn drives an application running on App Engine.

Well, this is the end result, a list of Doctor Who novels. Next step is to introduce some HTML5 formatting to beautify this list.

Asus EEE Note

Another mouth-watering development in the ebook/tablet world. This time, a new 8″ touchscreen-based LCD tablet from Asus boasting a resolution of 768X1024 (2540dpi) and feature 64 levels of greyscale. For me, the most amazing part is that the touchscreen support almost 256 levels of pressure, potentially able to replace writing with pen and paper, all for the price of US$200! Exciting times ahead indeed!
