Toy idea

Due to a past… shall we say, “extreme like” of Penguin Caffeinated Mints, I have more or less a bazillion empty metal tins, which I figured would make good project boxes for little ideas.

On the way to work I had an idea:

Take a tin, glue a strong magnet to the inside of the cover. Close the tin. Grab a handful of small steel hex nuts, and voilĂ  – a magnetic stacking executive desk toy (fun for kids, too!

The tin could also be a storage box for the hex nuts if there weren’t too many.

This I resolve

Ok, new year’s resolutions time!

This year I will:

– Learn objective-c and write some iPhone apps!

– Take (and pass) the Zend PHP certification exam!

– Get back into exercise, get my weight from the current 155 back down to 145 (or 140, if I get really ambitious)!

– Read more books (maybe keep a book log like Sarah)!

– Create more!

– Go on vacation! Current contenders: Costa Rica, Arizona, California, Georgia

– Be more organized!

That’s a pretty good list, I think.
