Annotating PDFs

Cheap (free) and easy solution: Formulate. It’s nearly perfect for filling in PDF character sheets, since you can save a filled-in sheet as a Formulate document and then use nifty built-in OS X features to print to PDF. For extra geek points, use handwriting fonts: there are a bunch here, amid the popups and blinking ads; Chank has you covered if you want to shell out for somewhat higher quality; or go grab the ECF handwriting fonts, which I like a lot.

Punch In The Face Index: S2E1

This is the first PITF Index for Season 2 of Heroes, the superhero TV show where people like to punch each other in the face. Really. Go back and watch the first season; there’s an awful lot of face-punching going on.

Therefore, it makes sense to do a weekly recap of who deserves to get punched in the face the most. At least, in our world it does.

Face-punch count: 3, or 2 if you don’t count the face slap. Susan does not.

PITF Index after the cut.

World Changes Again

Amazon now has a Print on Demand service. The pricing is a bit more complex than the competition (namely, Lulu), but everything gets an ISBN and you can publish into Amazon. Which is pretty huge.

I don’t think this is a Lulu killer, but it’ll definitely be competition, which hopefully will spur both companies to improve.
