emma 11-11-2004I would like to dedicate the release of this new-sprung software to an even more lovely newborn: my brother and his girlfriend's daughter, and my godchild Emma. Born on the 11th of November 2004! Apart from my big and exciting task as godfather, I will personally strive at making her the youngest Messer in the world ;)

UPDATE: Timothy fixed the setup bug. If you were experiencing problems before, uninstall your current version of CustoMess and try downloading it again.

Logitech's QuickCam Orbit wins Best of What's New Award

quickcam orbit webcamLogitech, the world's leading manufacturer of Web cameras, announced its QuickCam Orbit Webcam was named one of this year's top 100 tech innovations, receiving Popular Science Magazine's 2004 Best of What's New award in the Computing category. According to Popular Science, the awards featured in the magazine's December issue honor "breakthrough products and technologies that represent a significant leap in their categories."

With a design that is dramatically different from typical webcams, the highly stylized QuickCam Orbit Webcam changes how people participate in video communications over the Internet, making it much more natural. A motorized camera head combined with face tracking software allows the camera lens to follow its subject -- up and down, or left and right -- as that person shifts in a chair or moves freely about the room. The webcam also features a 9-inch stand, so the camera can be at eye level, whether on a desk or resting on top of a monitor.

So little posts lately you might wonder what's up? Or rather, what's down, because my Internet connection has died a slow death over the last couple of days. With my online time being very limited, I'm not able to "mess" at full speed until things get repaired over here :(

Good news is we're working on very, VERY cool stuff which will see the daylight tomorrow, or the day after. You're gonna love it! :)
