Pictures of the accord will slowly be released to the public. Unfortunately this is all that can be produced for the moment. Please be patient. Also I would like feedback about word web. Is anyone using it? It's just that I think it is amazing is all. If you don't know what I'm talking about I refer you to my post on April 9th.
One last picture. This is me with my mission president a week or so ago at my mission reunion. I just felt like I should post some evidence that I did actually serve a mission. But I guess you'd have to talk to him for it to be evidence, anyway I present to you: President Craigh Booth.
Earlier in the year I made a post about the 46 best freeware/shareware programs by some guy who I don't really know but whom I know fully trust. One of the programs on the extended list is called word web and is an amazing program. Let me explain. The program loads in your start up tray.....Now I'm usually very hesitant about programs that do this because they can seriously bog down the performance of the system, however this the first program that hasn't made any noticeable affect on performance. So anyway the program boots on start up in the system tray and is defined as a dictionary/thesaurus. The cool thing about it is that it is always running in the background, and so can be initiated at anytime using hotkeys, which on my computer is control alt w. So if you come across a word in any document, simply highlight and press the hotkey. Definitions come up as well as words nearby in the dictionary. Anyway it is way faster than going to different sites on the internet and its always neat to impress friends with hotkeys. Speaking of hotkeys I use the windows button and d about every 10 seconds to get to the desktop and also windows and e for my computer. It saves a little time but its mostly just about knocking the socks off of whoever is nearby watching. Because lets be honest, someone is always watching. And also one more thing about words, using the protocol: "define: xxxxx" in google works wonders for any word not found in word web. I use it all the time for science terms. Anyway let me know how word web works out for everyone, I'm real excited.
