Platonic solids The Platonic solids (here by OptimalControl) are defined as polyhedra (three dimensional solids) comprised of regular polygonal faces, arranged such that the same number come together at every vertex. The tetrahedron, octahedron, and icosahedron, each comprised of equilateral triangles, the cube made up of squares, and the dodecahedron made of regular pentagons, are the only polyhedra that match this description. These were described by Plato in the Timaeus dialogue, hence the name. He associated the first four with the elements fire, air, water, and earth, respectively, and the dodecahedron with the heavens. BTW, I know this is a LEGO-centric blog, and I try to stick to that, but if you are interested in geometric shapes like these, you might want to check out Magformers, a building toy made up of regular polygons with magnets along the edges, so they can easily click together to make various polyhedra. From the Timaeus:

avpicfacexmptagger:main [Andreas Vogel Wiki] This program was written because of the new Google Picasa 3.5 face recognition feature. Due to the fact that Picasa 3.5 doesn't store the face recognition data inside JPEG pictures, this program fetches that data and stores it as XMP-MP meta tags inside the JPEG pictures. The Picasa 3.5 face recognition feature stores the face data inside the Picasa database. As a consequence this data is lost when you give away your pics and this data cannot be shared with other users or with other Picasa instances running on different computers. Lukily Picasa stores the face recognition data (persons & faces) in quite simple text files so reading that data is not a big clue. There is already a method available how to store face recognition data inside JPEG pictures. Right at the start this program reads the Picasa text file holding the persons (contacs). Feature list for AvPicFaceXmpTagger: Forum I've created a forum for discussion about errors, enhancements and general issues for my programs. Donations

Steampunk Lego It's not hard to work out why Steampunks like lego so much.. we're tinkerers! For my part, lego always held a special appeal - not only is it a really fun toy to play with, but for me it also held the allure of THE FORBIDDEN! See, my mother had decreed that lego was "a boy's toy" and therefore, not being of the boy-type-child, I was not allowed to play with it.. ..of course this meant I played with it every chance I got. Many a time I remember sitting at the edge of the huge drawstring lego bag that flattened into a round rug-like area, clutching a doll in my hand, waiting for my mother's eye to wander so I could get back to building my latest creation.. It's clear that my love of lego is shared by many steampunks! Brilliant! Some really outstanding stuff from Guy Himber who rightfully won prizes at the lego convention, Brickcon.
