Backed! ... for a second time, because I loved the old QfG games, and I know the pain of developing an adventure game.

This weekend I installed a two-storey bike rack in the shed/laundry. This was supposed to be a super-easy installation: the device is just meant to lean against the wall. But because everything takes ages*, I spent the whole afternoon doing it.

1. Thing was a bit too tall, and the top was almost going to poke through the window. And if it didn't, it would be situated too far out from the wall, wasting inches of space. So I had to construct a little booster for it to sit on.
2. Now it's tall enough, but it's putting some load on the metal grate that stops birds from coming in. Not ideal! So I had to cut a segment out of the grate.
2a. The segment I wanted to cut was in the middle of the grate, so I had to dismantle my hacksaw and reassemble it while entwined in the grate.
3. With the top of it poking through the window, it had nothing to rest on - and nothing to anchor it to the wall. So I had to make a booster with a strap to do that job. Quite a complex assembly of laminated wood and old pants!
3a. Had to drill extra holes in the wall, because drilling into besser blocks is tricky. The drill bit always seems to wander.

It was worth it, though: there's much more room for accessing the washing machine now.

* Seems to be a general rule

It's an old shed in need of a makeover. The problem is that it's the way to the car port, so it ends up being the main entrance to the house (even though it's not the front door).

I want to tile the floor and paint the walls. But sometimes when it rains a lot, the bricks get wet, and the water seeps through to the inside. If I paint it I'm worried that the water won't evaporate and the bricks will get damaged. Any ideas?

Wow, thanks Labor.

(Greens Senator Scott Ludlam opinion piece.)

Via +David Cameron Staples.
Instead of stepping up as a party of opposition, Labor has thrown Tony Abbott a mass surveillance lifeline and indicated it will support his attack on our freedoms, writes Scott Ludlam. This earnest and reasonably accurate tweet from Labor Party headquarters caught my eye this morning, ...

Ants got into the sugar, so I put the sugar pot in a bowl of water to keep them out. Now I have a moat full of mosquito larvae. #pests

I saw someone with this box at the station, and I find it funny because of an obscure reference to the D-Generation's The Late Show. So I was like, "would you mind if I took a photo of your box?" And they were like, "um... Ok."

Now they're sitting a little way down the carriage from me. We occasionally make eye contact. It's kind of awkward.

I hope they don't get off at my station ^^;

Nice decor, great North Indian food and highly attentive staff. Very reasonably priced too! Maybe slightly westernised compared to other Indian restaurants in the local area, but the flavors are more authentic than a lot of Indian restaurants in Australia.
