chasing ZERO

The last sketch I posted of the Tellurian Zero made it look larger than it should...

The concept started life as an electric supercar, several years ago -- I remember posting it to MySpace, if that tells you anything.  It has since been pared down to something less extreme, at least in terms of performance.  You may even say it is not the same concept at all.

What it is, really, is an extrapolation.  Thoughts of converting existing vehicles to electric lead to the consideration of VW-based kit cars as a practical choice, but then you begin thinking about a custom-built chassis...  So why bother using some old kit car body, that you would want to modify to suit your tastes anyway?

Originally the name was chosen as an homage to 2 previous concepts called 'Zero', one from Bertone and one from Dome.  However I'm beginning to think it will be the first Tellurian Motors car I will be able to build, and so the name takes on a new meaning.

At this point the componentry hardly matters, but I'm considering leftover CODA Electric parts.  I'm not looking to set any track records with the Zero, just want it to be reasonably quick and fun to drive

It's about 5 inches wider and 100 or so lbs heavier (depending on which 530 we're talking about), but other than that, no...

Addictive tile game, this version featuring gifs of +Tegan and Sara Quin...

"A complete ripoff of Gabriele Cirulli's MIT-licensed 2048, which was based on 1024 by Veewo Studio and conceptually similar to Threes by Asher Vollmer."

I've only gotten my score up to 2736 so far.  Can I do better?  Can YOU?

I remember that movie and the other one about the truck catching up to what seems to be the same actor from my childhood. I remember thinking how a car could do this on its onw. Well, with autonomous driving...

Good heavens...  In the future we are all likely to be using cryptocurrency, be it Bitcoins or one or more of the hundreds that have cropped up.  It may even hold the answer to how a Guaranteed Basic Income will be distributed.  So, we should all endeavour to learn more about what cryptocurrencies are and how they work.

This is as good a place as any to start.

Introduction
My current profile image, made by manipulation of a tuning fork foto, is an approximation of an emblem I'd use for *Harmonic Conversions* -- a shop that would convert classic vehicles to electric.  'HC' is fictional, for now...

As there are 50,000 or more Phil Smiths in this world, I choose my username, 'filsmyth', over my given name, in an attempt to escape anonymity.  Google Plus splits it up, but maybe you can ignore the space after the short version?
