Now I’ve bought a new 27″ iMac I’ve decided it’s time to sell my dual processor PowerMac G5. It’s still a really capable machine, especially since I’ve upgraded from the original 512MB of RAM to the maximum possible, 4GB.
On Thursday we drove down to Coventry to collect my new toy, Q60 VMF – a Dutton Legerra kit car. Registered in 1989, and featuring parts from a Mk2 Ford Escort with the engine from a 2.0 EFI Sierra. It’s going to be an ongoing project to teach myself mechanics, and it’s also going to be my daily driver. Continue reading
Right now B&Q the DIY giant are using Helvetidoodle as the most prominent element on their homepage. Fancy that!
I’m selling my T-Mobile G1/HTC Dream in average condition. There’s some scratches on the screen, and the camera mirror at the back is cracked, but this does not affect its usability at all. It runs the popular Android operating system, so you can browse the internet, send and receive email, and install applications from the Android market including Facebook, Skype, Photoshop Mobile, and Google Maps. It even works with Google Navigation, which turns the phone into a super useful sat-nav unit! My favourite feature, that I really miss on my new phone, is that this has a proper slide out QWERTY keyboard. It’s really fast and easy to type out long emails.
It comes in its original box, complete with all bundled accessories; soft case, manuals, USB cable, CD, charger and a huge aftermarket Sandisk 8GB memory card. I carefully modified the bundled earphones to make an adapter so you can use your own earphones with the phone, and it works great for music with an application like Spotify.
The winning bidder can choose between the standard operating system installed on the phone, or, at no cost, I’ll install the latest Android 2.2 update from Cyanogen for extra features over standard.
Please note this phone is currently locked to the T-Mobile network, but can be easily unlocked to any UK network for a small charge.
In fact, they look so awesome, we felt we had to share them with you (plus, we bought far too many.) Screen printed on ridiculously thick 400GSM silk coated artboard and supplied with cool contrasting lemon yellow envelopes, they’ll take pride of place on the mantelpiece (at least the designers’ ones!)
…Until you’ve tried Helvetidoodle! I just discovered houseind.com sells a font called Disengage, that looks very close to my own free font, Helvetidoodle. I’m pretty sure this is a coincidence and I’d definitely not seen this font before now, but if you’re thinking of buying Disengage, you may as well try Helvetidoodle first as it’s free for personal and commercial use, and comes with a pretty wide character set.
Only just got round to posting these two panoramas taken from the very top of the Gateway Plaza off Summer Lane. The panoramas were created using as many as seven photos each, painstakingly invisibly stitched together, and as a result are a massive 9957×2996 and 8896×3230 pixels respectively.
Licensing and prints are available at fair prices – contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Why aren’t I CC licensing these panoramas like I always do my photography? I thought these, being of a specific time and place, may be of real value to the right person. And I can’t just give stuff away all the time.
Having great fun designing the Townend Christmas cards – here’s a bit of a teaser:
