The Dirt

Several people have asked, some by comment, and so here is the dirt about ms_rose.

She looks similar to both Donna on that '70s show (Laura Prepon) and Petra Baghurst after an eyebrow pluck. We are very similar in height, but I'm a whisker taller.

She likes poems, words, compliments, singing and chocolates. I've yet to established her position on flowers or baking.

I have observed her eating escargot, rare meat and humus.

I can confirm that her taste in shoes is not practical.

She will wear a scarf if offered one.


I have a new houseguest for the next 6 months or so.

Palmer is housebound for the next week till he gets used to the place. He spends lots of time looking out windows, but is happier and more settled than these photos manage to capture.

More Parts

Got more parts for my 2006 Project 2. I got them from the gardening section of Mitre 10, with my mother :)

Thursday Grabbag

I've gots lots to rant about today.

Firstly, I highly recommend this article about China, the structure of it's economy and the political and economic forces at play. It's a well written and researched piece and reasurring as a Westener.

Seconds, peeps, I've started playing Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. Turns out the menu system for setting things like screen resolution REQUIRES you to use a keyboard to change settings, you simply cannot do it with a mouse. My graphics card eats it for breakfast and I'm running the game off it's own hard drive, so it runs pretty nice. Only some minor tweaking needed to make my logictec usb joypad work just like a playstation controller :)

The camera in the game seems just plane broken however. When you drive around, which is half the game, the camera keeps panning to show you a view from ground level looking up at your car from behind. Rockstar claim this is a feature. Feature my ass, one of your monkies broke your implementation and you were too lazy to fix it, fool, what you crackin?

I wrote ms_rose a poem the other day. She likes it but doesn't want me to post it, yet again more mystery.

I feel like learning a language that lets me make executable files again, it's been a while. Perhaps I can do this with Ruby.

2006 Project 2 More Progress

More progress, both wheels and stationary stand are now glued to the evolving bottom plate. I need to sort out the handle, shaft and how to attach it to the bottom plate. Could be a bit tricky, might use a metal angle bracket in there somehow.

Desk Buffalo

Mmm, tasty buffalo. New original viral video content courtesy of mr_macimuso

2006 Project 2 Progress

I've been making lots of progress on my 2006 project number two. I've only got two parts to order before I've got all the parts I need for assembly. The construction stage is comming along nicely, and I'm about to stick on the second wheel.

First Vegetable

Got my first vegetable from the garden the other day. It's a yellow zuchinni. Tasty too.

Random Gentle Love Dreamer

Not satisfied with only knowing that I am an INTP in Briggs-Meyers terminology, I took an OK Cupid test. This seems half acurate.


The Boy Next Door
Random Gentle Love Dreamer (RGLDm)

Kind, yearning, playful, you are The Boy Next Door. You're looking for real Love, a lot like girls do. It might not be manly, but it's sweet.

We think the next three years will be very exciting and fruitful ones for you. Your spontaneous, creative side makes you a charming date, and we think you have a horny side just waiting to shine. Or glisten, rather. You enter new relationships unusually hopeful, and the first moments are especially glorious. If you've had some things not work out before, so what.

Your exact opposite:
The 5-Night Stand

Deliberate Brutal Sex Master
On paper, most girls would name the Boy Next Door as their ideal mate. In the real world, however, you're often passed over for more dangerous or masculine men. You're the typical "nice guy:" without just a touch of cockiness, you're doomed with girls. A shoulder to cry on? Okay, sure. But never a penis to hold.

More than any other type, Boys Next Door evolve as they get older. As we said, many find true love, but some fail miserably in the search. These tarnished few grow up to be The Men Next Door, who are creepy as hell, offering backrubs to kids and what not.
