[Current Mood |busybusy]

Did a quick project so that GLSlideshow (my screensaver), which currently shows random pictures from my gallery, would show the comment on the picture as well. Wrote it up here but there are no demos or anything so it's not very exciting :-)

Played around with the Palm Pre API last night, and I feel like I have my legs under me and can start making things that are actually neat rather than just toys. Exciting!

Thought: one thing I've wanted on a slide show screen savers was to allow it to accept keys without taking it out of screensaver mode. This would be for things like:

o Go back/forward one picture
o Show comment or date (toggle)
o Mod-up a picture/album (see more of them)
o Mod-down or kill a picture/album

Hmm... That doesn't look like much code - might not be too bad. The hard part would be seeing how the keys could be snagged. Have you ever looked at that part?
