This ... all this ! Users seem to think if are telling them something cannot be done it is because you are unable to deliver it. Which is caused more often that not by a large amount of inexperienced, incapable, individuals in the industry who clog up peoples experiences with the profession as they discover that 'someone else' could make it work. This forms the basis of their experiences and then they come to you and despite all evidence to the contrary their world view shaped by going from designer to designer is that the problem lies with your abilities not their expectations

Something for the Summer Holidays; and another excuse to build more planes. These West Wings Balsa kits require a little balsa cement and probably some variety of sealant. Do people still dope finish .. I will have to find out . I'll grab more images as I build out and see where they go from there.

you can order direct from WestWings.co.uk or head down to The Sussex Model Centre in Worthing and grab them from there. If you are thinking of ordering online let me know and I'll split postage with you to grab some as well

My first Brooks trainers I bought in 2014 and I replaced them in November. It did not occur to me that in 2015 my distances would be further by this time of year. No suprise then that my 2nd set of Brooks had accomplished over 700 miles and needed replacing. So here we are my third set a new set and you can see the difference in tread, heel and wear. I suspect i will be posting another album like this in the next 8 months again.

Assembling some components for my first Quadcopter build. Step one just like a PC the frame of the quadcopter builds today are getting to be very generic in build expectations. This version has rubber dampening to separate the electronics from the motors vibrations. Useful more for the Camera I might mount than the other components.

Skynet stuck first; after all it had First Strike, but we were not tapped out yet. We assembled our own team and sent them back. One Man-enough to lead the resistance before we were trampled out of the blue. 

A Neural network is taught what Magic the Gathering Cards look like and is then left to make up a few of its own. 
The are over 13,000 Magic: The Gathering cards, each of which fits uniquely into an incredibly rich, decades-old world of lore, rules, tokens, and tournaments. It takes years to master the game, and even then a new set of cards comes every few months to shake things up. That's why it's wonderful to see what kinds of innovation and oddity a days old artificial intelligence can come up with. I'm sorry..What does morph do again? MTGSalvation user Ta...

Somedays I love Charlies writing others i feel he had two halves of an idea and made a camel. At the essence of this article is the belief in the race to zero for the cost in search engines. On one side he posits the interconnectivity of human minds delivering a virtual telepathy. On the other the scale and dogmatism of monopolies undermined by lower order processes delivered direct to that virtual telepathic group.  

The race to zero in search is obvious for those who looked at the earlier  pre celebrity/pre branding, era of Social networks.  we each became the low cost core and distributed content aggregator for searching against.  

As for our virtual telepathy it is asychronous at best and filtered by the juxtaposition of platform to subscriber base

To be honest this is the hotel that makes a Disney stay feel like a Disney holiday. It helps that the staff are very French in their approach to service in a hotel.
