For +Ben Freke​ and all other Star Wars lovers
Some dedicated Star Wars fans in Japan have just created what may be the most epic pieces of Star Wars art that I've ever seen. The Japanese Ground Self-Defense Forces' 11th Brigade used bulldozers to move 3,500 tons of snow into a pile that they then carefully crafted into a 23m-wide and 15m-tall epic monument to Darth Vader and his Imperial forces.

Roomeaze, the App that let's you focus on finding the perfect roommate instead of the perfect room has just started to garner some local press.

It is time to reflect to project. What was your #3shifts of 2014? Here were mine, and it involved money, cameras and a dirty little secret.

Nice write up from Start Up Daily on our #startup #Roomeaze. What do you think? Can we compete with the big boys? What is missing in current offerings? - http://www.startupdaily.com.au/2014/12/roomeaze-takes-top-prize-hahn-jumpstart-competition-can-take-giant-realestate-com-au/
The new Roomeaze app, which is yet to launch will provide an easy, safe and fun way of connecting people with compatible roommates. The problem the team are solving is very real, but the new company is most definitely not the first to launch a solution that aims to solve it.

After my recent standing desk project, I thought I had found the best configuration. Now I know I haven't. Forget the standing desk, here is the sleeping desk.

Nice little take away run with a smile. Best hamburgers on the area by far.

Seems to have dropped in quality in recent times. Service still good, but food suffering.
