Fingerprint recognition and Ham! Ken Ham!

Well recently I've been able to recive a Microsoft Fingerprint Recognizer as a gift (<3 siblings with jobs) which is really neat because it's cool to be able to place your finger on the pad and have passwords be typed in on their own! (And it can switch between users when they place their finger on the pad which is neat)

Digital Persona (the company that makes the software) doesn't have much support for programs outside of IE but it does recognice the Master Password box in Netscape and Firefox so it still sorta works for them. It also can input passwords in Winzip (not like I use that much) and BYOND. I'm hoping they offer a little more support for other programs, that'd be nice of them. But for $10 what can you expect?

In truth there's hardly any support for personal fingerprint recognizers period, even on SourceForge there is a void (which is amazing). Though I'm thinking it's because of the fact that the recognizer is a little old so programs like Omnipass don't recognize the pad. Though I want to look into that a little more. It's sad that Omnipass and DigitalPersona are two of the only programs out there that actually support biometrics, at least they were the only ones Google came up with.

Hopfully there'll be someone who will make a program that offers greater support.


Anyway! In other news I've just found that Google Video has a lecture/serman by Ken Ham (Creationist) who is one of the most awesome people ever. He really does a good job making his point. Here's a link if you'd like to check it out:

Kan Ham on Google Video
(Note: It's 45 minutes long.)

If you click "More from this provider" there are some other videos by him. Pretty much any one with the picture "Answers in Genesis" as the preview thing. He deffinatly worth watching, even if you don't believe in Creationism.


What a great site here
