i awoke today to a disturbing dream. now most of my dreams usually are a result of massive paranoia -- you know the ones where you plan out what would happen on a home invasion, how fast you could get to a weapon, where you'd tell your family to hide, all sorts of crazy stuff that nobody wishes will happen

well, this morning i was shaken with something much more disturbing and random and for the life of me i cannot figure out where it came from...

my dream: a backup dancer for Eminem.

that's right: picture the mc hammer pants, hip-hoppin' my way to the lyrics of Eminem (i'm not even sure he has dancers).

anyway, weird thought while sitting on the plane -- even more weird dream...trust me.

i was in cancun this past week on vacation... while walking around, i saw this atm for banamex -- look on the top...yep in plain sight it's a cisco router and a (didn't remember the brand) cable modem just sitting on the top of the atm. cables exposed and all. i guess i just found it kinda funny --

call me an idiot, but i didn't know about this tool: http://www.primopdf.com/

a free pdf-print-driver-type-thing that has full pdf features (security, etc.)

a quick test showed a good output and the security seemed to work.

i haven't tested embedding fonts, etc. but it's a good little utility.
