3 lessons learned this weekend

Photoshop 7 .0 is great

Graphic design is easy

Time = k / Fun *


*Each of these variables is directly proportional with the multiplicative inverse of the other (i.e. 'Time Flies when you're having Fun')

Fire Your Imagination

Check out Melanie's site for some beautiful ceramics.

Better still, get up close and personal at Castle View Studio in Horsley, Northumberland.

Bash Crash Flash


Two flash games that kept me occupied for a few minutes. (Whilst the temptation to crash into things deliberately may be great, your will must be stronger, else the game will be short).

NinjaMan

He may not be Snowball or Usagi Yojimbo, but NinjaMan is still fun to play.

Rabbit Golf

Volkswagen of America, Inc. has announced that its all-new fifth generation Golf is going back to its roots with the original Rabbit nameplate for the U.S. and Canadian markets. The Rabbit will hop into the market in early summer, after its official introduction at the New York International Auto Show.

Waste Your Time

Author of the Timewaster Letters, Robin Cooper is my new hero. His website is possibly as bizarre as the workings of his mind, but I get the impression that maybe it only just scratches the surface. Whether it is a letter to the King of Belgium or a question for Parmaynu, this site truly has everything you never wanted to know. And yet it will make you cry with laughter.

Go Bunny! Go Bunny!


Ever wanted your own personal cheerleaders? Here's you chance.

Nothing Lasts Forever

Can I help you?

PARTICIPATION: You must arrive adhering to a very specific dress code:
1) Blue Polo Shirt. Short sleeved. Any brand. Preferably with no logo. As Close to Royal Blue as possible.
2) Khaki Pants. Any shade of khaki is fine. No shorts.

MISSION: "We're heading up to the Best Buy on 23rd Street. We'll enter the store one by one. Once inside, spread out and stand near the end of an aisle, facing away from the merchandise. Don't shop, but don't work either. If a customer comes up to you and asks you a question, be polite and help them if you know the answer. If anyone asks you if you work there, say no. If an employee asks you what you're doing, respond 'I'm waiting for my girlfriend/boyfriend who is shopping elsewhere in the store.' If they question you about your clothing, just explain that it's what you put on when you woke up this morning and you don't know any of the other people dressed like you."

Something Blue

This image caught my eye. A lot of this stuff is a bit too self indulgent but occasionally the odd one stands out. Fluorescence [6] is quite nice too.

Pipetree R.I.P.

Today seemed like a good day to get out in the garden and finally get rid of the old tree that once grew up behind the shed. Having hacked down the branches last year with the help of Siân's parents we were left with the tree stump and root system that would inevitably extend beneath the garden wall.

So, after digging down a couple of feet all round the stump I decided to move in towards the trunk only to find that the roots were going straight down a 7" earthenware pipe that someone had buried upright. This led me to 'phone a friend' and get confirmation that I wasn't about to discover an ancient sewer system that would require an emergency plumber on a Bank Holiday Monday (thanks, Dad!)

After further excavation Siân found the bottom of the pipe and we managed to finally cut the whole thing out. The monster was finally slain and would mock us no more. Rest in Peace - Pipetree - 1/5/06.
