Dinner, Dinner, and a Movie. And Handwriting.

And then, this morning, I did a study for people collecting data to improve handwriting recognition on tablet PCs. It was pretty cool, except for the part where the computer I was using took literally five minutes to load up each exercise. By the end of it, my wrist was starting to ache a little from resting on the edge, so I don't think I'll be using a tablet PC unless they get much thinner. But I really can't complain, because I got a copy of MS-Office 2007 out of it. Even with the extra time waiting (I was the last one to leave), that's about $200/hour in compensation.

(If you're local and interested, the study's going through June. http://www.handwritingstudy.com/ for details. And if you mention my or Jerry's name, we'll get a shiny $5 bill come August...)
