What I might do is put together all of the different treatments of this recording in a single soundcloud set at some point this week(-ish).
And more to the point, what does it do? Good question. Well it was a demo app from what was to be a replacement OS for the Palm PDA. Sadly it never came to anything, but I still have the demo apps/applets that were around and every now and then I get one of them going to try and remember what it is that they actually do.
Baby hedgehog is a lot like that. Every time I come to use it I can’t really remember what it is that is does.
I still wish that there had been a replacement OS for Palm which was just for music, but that’s never going to happen now sadly. But if you want to know more about Capers, look here.
I’d all but forgotten that these older PDAs could do this.
When looking back at the Capers applets I found details of this project I wrote about at Palm Sounds in 2006, and it made me wonder if I should give it another go, and that means I probably will.
I’m not sure if I’ll use the same PDA, the clie T425. I might use something different. We’ll see.
I’d been waiting to see the remake of True Grit for a long time, and last night I finally got round to it. Sadly it was a big disappointment. Or that is to say that it was a big disappointment for me. I didn’t like the changes to the story and the way the ending was changed.
Overall it seemed to be a darker story than the original, with less hope in it, and I think that’s a mistake. Still, it’s just my opinion, and most of all it made me want to see the original again, which I really should own.
