Gaudi Anthropomorphism

Sitting in the courtyard earlier, I noticed that my brownstone framed block built c1898 is much the same, without all the fractal detail that wasn't called that back then.
The Block Has Eyes, and Chins, and nasal cavities. Buggin'

Gaudi. Wikipedia. Go!

FrogPad Angel

I recentlly brought a #FrogPad from an eBay'er who didn't have the time/need to learn it. I mentioned it was to replace my broken one, and he turned out to be a solderer, tinkering since his guitar pickup days, and immediately offered, humbly, to try and fix my keyboard for fun. I'd dropped my old one to the floor with a Mini-USB cable plugged in, and the USB connector snapped it's solder to the mainboard. Well, I mailed my ailing, precious one handed keypad to him using a trusty USPS Flat Rate Box & Bubble wrap combo for Priority Mail and he fixes it to new within 40 minutes of recieving it. What an Amazingly cool tech friend!

Old techies never die, and practically re-incarnate when they meet their next generation.

So pay it forward, people.

LOST Swan Hatch

To pass the time before the LOST Finale, I constructed a model of The Swan Hatch for @jopinionated's DVD Contest . I intend to finish it eventually. Here is what I had by the deadline:

The Construx Manifest (no o)

This took quite awhile, but everything is in it's right place. Thanks to the 31 people on eBay who helped, and less so to the one who sent me a dank, mouldy lot. The Orange Cases were rated for 1,000 pcs, the Yellow ones for 400 pcs, but I packed in a LOT more. Trivia Note: The Yellow Cases fit exactly inside the Orange cases when emptied.

Packing Strategies, v3

How many #Construx can fit in these 8 cases? Notice the PowerBook G3 is DVORAK, by the way :)

TOP ROW: White Beams & Turntables / 100% Gray Beams / Black & Wheels
MID ROW: Army & Weapons / Nuts & Pods / Engines & Boats (Hi, Mac!)
LAST ROW: Panels / A Nut Case / Wheels & Specials Pieces (smaller, yellow cases)

5,768 pieces sorted by color & size.nothing rattles, they're in there to such tight tolerances. I actually felt air escape upon closing each orange case, and located the small pressure hole drilled into the case. Each case closes effortlessly,so no nasty stretching and compression that can break the occasional fragile or overstretched/overturned pieces. The Gray case was liberated from a DREMEL Tool.

RIP 20 broken beyond belief pieces. Slight cracks may be taped or glue-ed back.
