Sometimes you just see the paper moving but you cant see her at all.
I believe the technical term for this is the Dead Bunny Flop.
Its hard work being a bunny it seems.
For some reason she loves sitting in that box.
She has a Logitech box as well, but she much prefers Asus.
I’ve been extremely busy these days.
One of my new projects is a Interactive Floor Plan builder for real estate agents, so they can do it themselves and save a whole pile of money. Currently firms which do them at the moment charge about $70 for them.
Real estate agents also have horrible email addresses. For some reason @bigpond.com is the most common by far.
So I’ve also been setting up a really professional email hosting server (anti-spam, anti-virus, very fast, IMAP, POP3, SMTP) to try and get rid of some of those addresses.
We’ll see where both of those go.

I was thinking the other day.
Google has vast amounts of data about the world.
Everything from high res satellite images to street maps to street view images.
They even have 3d buildings in some places.
What if they are trying to make a 100% seamless 3d world?
Where you can zoom in from space and see satellite images and as you get closer you get fully textured 3d buildings and even closer you get detailed street images?
All seamlessly stitched together to make a high quality fluid world.
The technology exists – it just needs to be fine tuned and perfected.
Why did I think of this?
Has anyone else noticed the lack of street view in Google Earth?
The logical thing for them to do is not implement it the way Google Maps uses it but to combine it with the satellite imagery.
Well the Gentoo Wiki is down with no backups which created a lot of headaches for everyone.
So with 48 hours of work I reconstructed the wiki.
I present to you, http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/
Its a full read only copy of the wiki. Enjoy.
You are now reading this on my new Virtual Private Server.
I used to have a CentOS VPS with cPanel for $60/month at Liquidweb.
This new VPS is with SliceHost and its only $38/month.
Fun details about its setup:
- Running Gentoo unstable
- Apache 2.2 with mpm_event
- 512mb ram/20gig space/200gig bandwidth
- Backed up daily to Amazon S3
What on earth is Kevin Rudd doing?
He wants to save the environment AND reduce petrol prices – at the same time.
Motorists are a major green house gas contributor and people like their cars.
The only way to change their habits is to make it prohibitively expensive.
People are going to keep driving otherwise.
You cant save the environment when its convenient. It has to be all in or all out.
Either seriously save it or boost the economy by ditching all the money going towards environmentally friendly stuff.
Well I’m designing a expansion board for my NGW100.
It will have Audio (CS4202), PS/2 ports with the required level shifters, VGA (ADV7125), a 128×64 monochrome LCD and some interesting power circuitry.
Whats interesting about the power circuitry is it will be able to take half a dozen different power sources to power the NGW100.
They include USB power, Solar, Wall wart and power from a lead acid battery.
It will be monitored by a ATmega32 (which also runs the LCD) and the NGW100 will be able to inquire about voltages and battery capacity.
Attached is 3d renders of my monstrosity.
I’m trying to cram all this stuff in to a very small space. I’m limited to 10cm by 8cm.
Also the power circuitry isnt done yet. It will fill the blank space.
