Software for Geometric drawing

Yesterday, while doing some work on my thesis, I needed to draw a geometric shape to determine three points on a circle which contains a triangle inside. I needed those three points to be the location of three wireless nodes. As I do not have compasses, protractor (চাঁদা!) or anything of that sort with me (who does after the school days!?), it was kind of troublesome. I searched in Google for this and came to know about this software, cleverly named C.a.R - which means "Compass and Ruler" or "Construct and Rule". Though it takes some time in the beginning to have a grasp of the things, after that initial part it is quite easy to use. Here is the link of the program homepage :

The software is open source, runs on any platform (needs Java), and is a small download.

I have got my three points, now back to work!

35 mm

I came along this wonderfully made short film, on cinema itself. The creators of the film chose 35 of their favorite movies and represented them through symbols and music in this two minute video. That's roughly 3.4 seconds of average screen time per movie! You can guess the creativity and subtlety needed to do so. I have to admit that though I have watched around 20 of the 35 movies listed, I could not figure out more than 8 even after watching the video for three times. Nonetheless, it is fun!
