  • Our final test has come and gone, but we have one more day to complete our wiki assignment. In order to obtain success please see the Assignment 2 Key, and the FAQs
  • Also, if anyone is interested, there is a very intriguing article about Web 2.0, because wikispaces is part of this "technology" I thought it would be interesting to some of you guys.

  • A piece of 'technology' thats amazed me for a while, since I saw it on the shopping network! Designed originally by MIT - what a nice Christmas gift for your mom. Its one of those vacuums that cleans all by itself...

  • Oh my god.. EVERYONE READ THIS ARTICLE! It totally blew my mind! Supposedly scientists are working towards developing a ROLL-UP COMPUTER! I'm sure there are some of you who know about this already but I just felt like sharing. It's so cool! Also look it up on Google Images ;)

  • I know it is a bit late, but I realized that no one had said anything about Remembrance Day. It seems like one of those days that goes un-noticed in our generation as the poppy time of the year. Even though many of our grandparents many have been involved the second World War, it seems to get harder and harder each year to remember how Canada use to be back then. Many may dispute that with the current wars going on in middle east, but it seems like to most people, if it is not happening directly to us, it is not happening at all. What I am saying is we really should remember and it should no longer be an overlooked day. Please feel free to go to http://www.vac-acc.gc.ca/remembers/sub.cfm?source=history/other/remember to get further information. Whether you believe in war, whether you were born in this country, or whether you wear your country proudly, without the brave men and women, I, you, and we would not be where we are today.

  • Want to help our design Paypal System. Please fill out our Survey . Thanks for your particpation.
  • Some people have had problems uploading images and getting them to display in Wikispaces. This seems to be a Photoshop issue - on lab Macs running Photoshop CS2, choosing "Save As" to save a JPG seems to create a problematic JPG for some reason. Choosing "Save to Web" (how you'd create GIF, PNG or JPG files) seems to work fine. Why one JPG is not the same as the other is beyond me.
