Wii Sensor Bar

In other news I modded my wii sensor bar. Not really a major project but just something to stop everyone tripping over the cord as it snaked from one side of my lounge room to the other. So it is nice and wireless now with a push button switch to turn it off and stop it chewing through all my batteries. When I find an appropriate wall adapter (Somewhere between 7.5-9Volts) that actually outputs its claimed voltage I will wire that up to work with the bar. I could take a photo of it but really there isnt much to look. - Except for maybe the warped ends of the bar where I supplied 12volts for about half a day and the LEDs got a 'little' hot.

Also bought a new bigger aquarium with a stand. Was a bargain but the stand has this dodgy white wash paint job so looks like there could be a bit of work there fixing that up.

5 Day skiings at Perisher coming up in less than a week!!!

Ls Budgeter

Unfortunately I haven't been doing much 3D work lately. However I haven't been completely idle. I have been making great progress on my Budget Application. This will be the one stop shop for all your budgetry needs. Rather than just have a simple excel style budget (which I did have) I thought why not a full blown application? So this guy is meant to be pretty straight forward to use and also quite complex and accurate in its results. I have lovingly dubbed it a monetary simulator as it tracks the flow of money as you earn it till the time it leaves your hands to be transformed into your latest purchase.

So to quell the rising anticipation of the masses(yes, Im in denial that no-one reads this) here is a screenshot of the current version showing the accounts pages. These are largely finished and allow you to manage accounts and transfer funds between various accounts. The balance of each account at the end of the simulation is shown on the right panel.
