Yep. I unveiled the project during the party. I had the guy go to
YouTube and watch it. It was priceless to hear him (I wasn't watching
it with him) gasp and start laughing when he ran across the pictures.
I'd added some captions and things and it went over extremely well.
Too bad more people at the party don't have more money... ;)
There's something weird up with Google Maps in Canada. I don't get
any of the tools that I get with Google in the US. Not sure what's up
with that, but it's aggravating. I can't grab and move the map, I
can't scroll, the zoom is for shit. Do you have any of those problems
Trulli - no s. Trulli is the plural. They're built in a really arid
area, so rain is not a big deal.
The last one has a picture of trulli with snow on the roof. I'd never
seen that before.
This is probably already gone, but...you never know.
This place has cheap weekend workshops:
It would be easier and cheaper to just set the containers on piers.
There would be advantages to skipping the excavation part (speed of
construction, cost, simplified design), and you wouldn't be able to
take advantage of the earth-sheltered thing, but the determining
factors would be site specific.
Probably not. You really want me to move to Boston, don't you? Maybe
you should look into couch surfing. ;)
I'm sitting here writing this in my finally-finished first-ever
sweater I knit, and it fits very well, looks great, and is
surprisingly warm! So I can empathise, especially today, with the good
feeling of personal achievment... But, yes, about that more money
No problems here. Maybe it's your system/browser?
Thanks for those links, especially the first, with construction--
bookmarked. I want to take a better look at it later.
Gone, thanks... I recently came across another forum and free boat
that included someone inquiring if it was still available. I'm
guessing you have to be on top of those things when they come out.
I've been meaning to join that particular forum (or similar) if it's
the same one as the magazine of the same name.
When I have additional time, I'm going to look over that site too. I
have a folder on my bookmark bar called, WoodShips. :)
Funny, but my idea from 2004 had a couple of "piers" on one half-side
as part of the design...
I dug these out of the bin:
There may be some description there of initial designs, I haven't time
to read all of it.
2003! ...hard to believe 8 years ago.
The original design was not supposed to include excavation, so that's
I'm not fussy. Just make it a reasonable area in Boston and suede. ;D
I'd like to see a picture of the sweater. How long did it take you to
make it? How much actual working time, and how long overall from
start to finish? A girlfriend of mine is an uber-knitter/crocheter/
budding-felter. The felting thing is very cool. I'm going to make me
Vista/Firefox - never saw the problem with any of Google's stuff
before. When I take the lat and long you posted and plug it in to the
US Google, it's all hunky dory.
I'm going to take a better look in person in the next year or two,
I have another book out on the history of containerized shipping -
it's been just over 50 years since they were invented. Did you ever
look into a refrigerated container to build with?
Quite a wide temperature range!
It'll be micro. Not the suede, the couch - don't want you overstaying
your welcome. :)~
With me in it? :)
Well you'll have to wait for that, but for now, I can show you a pic
spread out of it almost finished (that doesn't do it justice such as
look as black or soft as it looks to the eye. It's a bit overexposed
to show a little of the stitch details). (seamed at the raglans,
except near the neck, under the arms or along the sides.)
I took my sweet time and hardly worked on it since starting it until
very recently, when I went crazy. I began it in June 2008 in North
Vancouver at yet another Starbucks. Here's a picture of it of that
era, along with a scarf I had made and a ball of handspun yarn I won
from a contest. The prop is a metal sculpture in a park overlooking
On the other side of Coal Harbour at 2 in the morning and in a fog:
Sometimes you just can't sleep, so you go out and rollerblade in the
fog with a camera.
Felted boots? Never heard of those, but, yes, felting is quite cool.
The knitted and felted women's purses remind me of an ex-girlfriend
who was crazy about purses and had many-- except, AFAIK, one like
I can't explain that, but sometimes if I Google a specific problem and
phrase it well, sometimes I'll find the solution.
I'm envious. Have fun. Maybe I can find a free boat in the mean time
and sail there. Right now at the site, there's a cute Bluenose-
designer-designed boat in good shape "sort of" available (someone's
wanting dibs on it). I'd take it if I was east coast.
I thought about that and decided that if Flash's raison d'etre is
speed, then it would stand to reason that he should be made the
fastest-- faster even than Superman.
But you made me decide to look it up for fun:
"On several occasions, the Flash has raced against Superman, either to
determine who is faster or as part of a mutual effort to thwart some
type of threat; these races, however, often resulted in ties because
of outside circumstances. However, after the DC Universe revision
after Crisis on Infinite Earths, The Flash does successfully beat
Superman in a race in Adventures of Superman #463 with the explanation
that Superman is unused to running at high speed for extended periods
of time since flying is more versatile and less strenuous, which means
the far more practiced Flash has the advantage. After Final Crisis in
Flash: Rebirth #3 the Flash is shown as being much faster than
Superman, easily outstripping him as Superman tries to keep up with
him. He claims that those times that the races between them were close
were 'for charity'."
Superman was 'designed' (or evolved) to be the best at everything -
you know, super! The banality of that eventually dawned on people and
weaknesses had to be introduced. Magic (sheesh), varieties of
Kryptonite, etc. He was just way too boring otherwise. In essence
they had to restructure the fighting weight classifications to make
things a sporting proposition.
