Scrumptious

Saturday, May 5th, 2007

Ok, I FINALLY get why del.icio.us is so good.  Took a while, but spending a week recuperating from a back injury allows for more webtime that is probably healthy!  I apologize to everyone rolling your eyes at me for coming to this belated realization.  del.icio.us rocks.

Stella Bella

Tuesday, June 20th, 2006

To explain my rather long absence from this site - I will simply say that STELLA BELLA SANDMEIER-STEELE was born 31 May 2006. (Her official due date was TODAY). She weighed 6 pounds 10 ounces (or 3.02Kg), 51 cm long and has been keeping us busy every since. Postings will likely be even more sporadic then they were before - but I’ll soon get back into the swing of things. Pics of the babe over on the flickr account - click the thumbnails at the right to head over there.

SQUARE[LS]

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

brett just posted this over on his resarch site - but we were giggling while perusing the pics - so i thought i’d post what would surely be George’s favourite if he could understand and register images on a computer monitor.

Technology or Sport?

Friday, April 1st, 2005

This is so funny, I just had to post it. Reading the New York Times this morning I found a bizarre article about a new form of Polo. Traditional polo is of course played while riding a horse. Little did i know that there exists also Elephant Polo (you guessed it, riding an elephant) and now Segway Polo.

WHEN Alex Ko and his companions took up polo, they made some subtle changes to the sport once enjoyed by ancient Mongol warriors, who are said to have played with the severed heads of their enemies.

Mr. Ko and his friends opted for a 6-inch-diameter Nerf ball.

And instead of horses, they chose to ride Segways, the self-balancing transportation devices first developed as a short-distance alternative to the automobile.

“It’s similar to real polo,” Mr. Ko said, “but without the manure.”

Then again the article was published on April 1st so could be it’s all a fool’s game.

House of Cards

Can’t even begin to track back the links that got me here, but have a look - it’s worth it.

Blind leading the blind

Monday, January 10th, 2005

Here’s the result of our first game of Go. We are not entirely convinced of our technique and maneuvers (or even the results) - but it was interesting nevertheless.

Antenna

Monday, January 10th, 2005

Just found this site today following a series of links that initially started out at Flickr. Antenna is an interesting blog with lots of great references and links to other obscure and not so obscure sources of information and design.

Go Game

Sunday, January 9th, 2005

Received Go the other day - and the instructions alone will take several days to read. Managed to beat a few online programs today - which unfortunately is an indication of near impossible programming for this game rather than my stunning skills. Will prove to be entertaining i’m sure.


spreading a bit of optimism for the new year

I’ve found these sites most useful for donating to the tsunami fund. There are so many to choose from it was hard to pick - but here are mine. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and Direct Relief International which deals mostly with providing medical aid and supplies. Also Google has a good list.

PLOT

Bjarke Ingels just called me giving me 3 seconds notice to get to an awards ceremony at RIBA. His office, PLOT has just won a prize from AR+D for the Maritime Youth House in Copenhagen.


MOBLOG UPDATE

Wednesday, December 1st, 2004

I have now mastered the art of sending a picture message from my phone to my moblog. You’ll see a splendid image of my street at the fromform moblog.


Firefox

Monday, November 29th, 2004

This site is best seen with Firefox. I’ve made a few changes recently which have thrown the whole thing off in Explorer. Still trying to sort it out.

Flickr

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
