That article used eroticism and puritanical.
Should have said esoterical and provincial.
I'm going to start an architectural magazine titled The "Unglossy Rag" and no
words with more than 5 letters will be used.
$10mil seems about 10 times too much, at least. just sayin....
I have a couple of models I'd like to "3D print" ((not architectural, just
But seriously, this would be an interesting public building; I'm not
convinced, though, about how functional it'd be.
I'm currently trying to figure out how far down I could pare our living
space, if I had a Studio. We use very little space for actually living;
most of th espace I use is devoted to my "stuff-making", which currently,
is mostly glass-related, though I'll be expanding to glass-and-concrete,
and want to add glass fusing and casting. But other than "stuff-making",
I'm realizing the the amount of space we actually *need* is actually pretty
small. It's be even less, if there was a lot of built-in storage - then we
could get rid of most of the furniture...
An *interesting* small space would be cool, though, such as some of the
treehouses and whatnot. But i see this "Moebius strip building" as more of
a public building.
Since I'm stuck in a twilight zone of sorts, not broadband - not dialup, bu
t Hughes satellite, I have to always be vigilant of content as we have a 25
0mb/day speedbump to maintain. We've exceeded that a couple times in the pa
st 7 years we've had this dish and they snap it off DEEP in that ass withou
t warning. They drop the speed down to an absolute crawl, I mean just sendi
ng a basic email will timeout 10 times before going thru and thats with no
attachments, just simple text. They maintain that penalty for 3-5 days.
I rarely view web video's unless it is something especially enticing, and s
Oh yeah, we pay $80/mth for this shitty satellite.
It's either that or true dial up and I don't think I could stand that for 1
second, I mean, whats the point? But maybe I'm wrong, I havent been on dia
l up since about 1998 or so.
If you're considering dial-up I guess it means you still have a LAN line.
Doesn't your telco offer DSL for maybe 30-40 bux or somefink? At least
these offer around 3MBPS (usually). UP here in the mountains, our ONLY
option other than dial-up is cable. So I switched everything to cable,
internet, TV and phone.
Yeah we have a High Speed option from a tower 'cross the lake', maybe
$50/month, for 100Gb then extra over that, seems like the price is ok
if it's useful to ya, but it's not to us, 600/yr for something we won't
use much more that LAN line.
Advertising keeps social site stock sky high selling you need sumfink,
which in turn generates need for higher speed so you can down load
commercials without TV. As the wonder-site ad revenue slips then add
more ads, you add more Band Width for watered down content.
Believe me. The PRIMARY reason why we have high speed bandwidth is for
streaming content. We watch more streaming content than regular teevee.
My wife watches all her movies and favorite programming on-demand on Netflix
and Hulu, I watch all my sports content on-demand, as well as news weather
entertainment etc. And all the home/cell phone movies I make of the
kitties and hiking and other miscellaneous things get posted to my YouTube
account so that once posted, I can delete them off my 'puter. Doing that
allows us to just have basic cable - no box 14 bux/month cable bill.
That's the primary reason. But there's a much more important reason too.
Uploading and downloading all my client and other biz materials. Both for
communication and sharing reasons, as well as for back-up reasons.
Of course, if your only option is satellite, then so be it.
Occasionally we'll tape a show, maybe once/month, for us most TV and
movies puts us to sleep.
All power to ya, architecture presentations etc. necessarily are a great
business tool. It's also very useful for trading.

Shoot, I have cable - so the problem isn't download speed, it's just that I
haven't got the time to look at hours and hours of videos, heh! ;)
