Get your own QR Code on a t-shirt or other products at!

Ever see one of these codes? Well if you haven't, you probably will pretty soon. They are becoming very popular these days. So, what is it?

This is called a QR Code, or "Quick Response Code", and it can contain all sorts of information. Think of it as a bar code on steroids. Using scanner software (available on all Android phones and also the iPhone) you can point your phone's camera to a QR Code and get the information it contains.

The scanner app will also identify the kind of data (email address, website URL, contact info, etc.) and present to you the appropriate options (send an email, go to a website, save a contact...) Some DVD makers are already including these codes on the DVD cover with a link to a trailer.

QR Codes are already popular in other countries, and is gaining momentum here in the U.S. And now you can take advantage of this by generating your own QR Code and having it printed on a t-shirt, business card, mug, or any number of other products. Just visit my new site, to create your very own QR Code product. Cool! :-)

Jenny Craig: Year 2 - Week Eight

Hmm. Not sure what happened this past week. I walked 30 minutes every work day, and I ate well and I STILL gained 0.4 pounds. I would have put money on losing this past week, but such is life. I can't get discouraged. I'm still walking and drinking more water, so hopefully next week's weigh-in will go better. Sigh.

Jenny Craig: Year 2 - Week Five

I rebooted my mind on February 1st, meaning that I have reaffirmed my commitment to losing weight. January has been busy (birthday dinners, Vegas, holiday party at work, etc). So that is why I picked February as a good starting point.

Well, seems to have worked! This week I lost 1.2 pounds! Which surprised me since this week still included some of my January exploits ;-)

In any case, my new year has now begun.
