Fun Stuff: September 2007 Archives

Woke up a bit after five feeling the after effects of last night. Might have gotten back to sleep except I remembered I hadn't unpacked the fishies from their baggies last night after I brought them home. So got up and did all that. Then did a final wipe down of the shower. Then went shopping (cause needed cash for the tiler and thought would pick a few things up).

All of this before 8:30am. (!)

So tiler dude came to regrout the shower and I tidied up the flat, and had some people come and take away both my couch and the hobby table. Which is a huge relief cause I didn't think they were going to get taken (Freecycle let me down) and I didn't want to move them.

The rest of the day was packing and organising and scanning.

Here's two of the cooler things I scanned today...

Triple M's Dr Dan logo. I traced this from a newspaper ad and coloured it in. I think I did this in about 1989.

A fractal expanded from the one in the book of Jurassic Park. The idea is you draw a small line. From the end of that line, you pivot 90°, giving you an L shaped line. You then take the end of that and pivot the L 90° giving most of an S. And so on. You end up with a kinda S-shaped fractal. I colour-coded as I went so I wouldn't get lost.. although that didn't help near the end and I did stuff it up.

So had a bit of fun looking for Steve Fossett tonight.

Did about 100 hits. But the images they have to work with aren't that great. They're quite dark. And if the plane nosedived in a heavily wooded area the chances of seeing it are incredibly low.

Try seeing anything in this:

The most interesting pic I saw was this:

There's 70-odd thousand "hits" left .. wonder if they'll find anything :)
