A Rush of Blood to the Head

I've had Coldplay's album recommended to me. I intend to go and get it within the next week.

Virtual Keyboard

the Wired News article about virtual keyboards looks good to me, but it raises a few questions: Will the cat walking on it cause problems? Will it take up more space on the desktop? Will it be less comfortable to type on?

More Photos

 I've been uploading photos to a photo journal. I took some photos in Mt Eden on my way to meet a friend for coffee. I obviously need more practise. I had trouble getting a thumbnail to show here because I had mistyped the <img> tag. Oops!

Waste Exchange

I found out about the Auckland Waste Resource Exchange today. It includes things I'll be able to use for the mosaics I want to have a go at making.

The things I want to make are:

  • Circular outdoor table

  • This will use irregular shaped tiles.
  • Hall table

  • This will use square tiles in a geometric pattern. I'm not sure of the dominant colours yet. I'll probably go with either blue/green/white or red/white
For both these tables I am on the lookout for sets of iron legs to achieve the effect I want.

Blog Reading

The gay news blog is a good read. I'm adding it to my blogroll.

Photo Journal

I've been working on a photo journal. It's been difficult getting the formatting exactly how I want it. The photos are from my new camera, an Exilim S3 I bought while in San Diego. I'm using cam2pc to extract the images and in a folder hierarchy based on the date taken (in the exif data). Then I'm using JAlbum to process these folders and make webpages resulting in my photo journal.
