This picture isn't very special. He's going to be a side character of JF. He won't get a line of speech, or will he? Find out in Scene 5. One lesson I'd like to teach tonight is the back of the head. Although many of my pictures lack the back of the hair, they should have it. Me being an amateur am just learning how to do it right. This picture is the link between awful and decent.

I worked on a GUI tonight. It is absolutely amazing. I'm impressing myself every day more and more. It's made with JScript and HTML, but would be easily translated to DOS. It's a multitasking OS, too. It uses 2 bit color (black, white, light gray, dark grey). I did that because the OS would translate well into a palmtop. Not just any palmtop, but an AltSci Palmtop dubbed the AltSciPad. I was thinking about using a keyboard and lightpen to drive user input, but the lightpen won't work well with a low-end monochrome lcd screen, I don't think. It might, but I'm going to assume it won't. Instead, I'll do something even cooler: magnetic pen. I'd just put three digital compasses into the screen and triangulate the position. Specs for the AltSciPad: ~33 MHz CPU, 8-128 MB RAM, Compact Flash HD, 800x400 2-bit mono screen, 8"x4" screen, 10 hrs of battery life, AltSci Thin Client OS, full Software (MP3, MIDI, DIVX, spreadsheet, calendar, calculator, notepad, HTML viewer, paint, etc, plus others written by other programmers), multi-tasking, and a few that I've forgotten. It's not yet available (duh, or it'd steal the market), but I'm looking for investors. ^_^ I have an early demo of the GUI (using HTML, JScript, and Data binding), but I can't make it available for fear that it might be stolen. I'll be able to give better demos (DOS mode C++, etc) later in development.

That's just one of a zillion ways that AltSci Concepts is endeavoring to serve you better.
