Today I took the plunge, today I viewed not to look back, only to look forward, today I installed Service Pack 3 for XP.

Is it any good? are there any improvements? has it broken my system? - these questions will all be answered in due time, actually it is still installing. I havent taken the full plunge though, I am installing it on my laptop running XP Pro, if this is a successfull experiment I may port it onto my main development machine, but we will see what happens first with the laptop.

Even although its been a busy week here I have still found time to surf around having a look at whats hot and keeping up with technology.

Something I came across a while back was a clever application called Photosynth from Microsoft, when I first read about it there was no opportunity to test it as it was still in a closed beta, now they have opened up a development version for public download. Photosynth lets you view images relating to a particular scene with each image linked to one another through dimensional geometry and relative positioning, ie - how far apart the real objects are.
