Ponoko – Blog Stage Archives - Aberdeen Voice Old Susannah wades in with her chainsaw rattling in the direction of Union Terrace Gardens, but the elms need not fear, she is only out to cut through the misinformation presented as ‘myth busting’ by the City Garden Project. By Suzanne Kelly. Old Susannah has been busy with Union Terrace Gardens this past week, like so many of us. Another few short weeks, and the people will have voted one way or the other as to whether or not our environment, heritage and common good land are better served up with concrete ramps or not. Then I can get back to the important work of singing the praises of our elected officials, unelected quangos and council officers, and local millionaires. Before I get down to the Gardens situation, I thought I’d look back at all the wonderful artwork that the City’s children sent in for the Christmas time art competition and event in the gardens, organised and funded in large part by the Bothwell family. On with some definitions then. Fine – we are all in agreement. 1. 2.

50 of the World’s Best Breakfasts from Around the World - Written by Victoria Philpott Salivating. That’s the only way to describe me after looking at all this food porn. I love to eat breakfast, it’s the best meal of the day as far as I’m concerned.

Fashion design edging closer to 3D With Fashion Weeks around the globe drumming up much fanfare it’s nice to take a step back from the glitz and glamour of those perched on the catwalk front row, and think about the designers. The industry is devoutly 2D - especially the haute couture of the most desirable labels, being more art than garment - so steps into designing through 3D tools has been a slow one. Last December Dassault Systèmes launched its Fashion Lab, and the engineering software company had previously been working tirelessly with mass consumer brands such as Under Armor in introducing 3D into apparel design. This year sees a more unlikely source of 3D design influence coming from the games industry, with Marvellous Designer 2. From what we can tell from the limited information that has accompanied its UK launch by resellers bluegfx, it is a straightforward games character dresser that can be used with most professional rendering programmes to give incredibly lifelike and detailed movement.

A beginner's guide to BitTorrent sob, demonoid is no private tracker. half the torrents are externally tracked from the likes of tpb. even then it's ridiculously slow. and if you think oink is impossible to get into, good luck with the other great and more elusive and unknown private trackers out there. I'm tempted to recommend inviteshare, but most of the best aren't even on there..and the ones that are..fat chance of getting an invite (particularly when your email address is out there in the open to the site admins too...). Also, pg2 is only as good as its blacklist, which is not good at all because it blocks IP addresses arbitrarily based on known blocks belonging to certain organizations and what have you. So essentially, peer guardian is a complete waste of resources for bittorrent. Lastly, the "official" bittorrent client is better known as mainline.

we dont do retro - Download Freeware and Shareware Computer Utilities. Rotational Moulding DIY Machine by Andrew Duffy, Craig Tyler and Edward Harrison Product design students Andrew Duffy, Craig Tyler and Edward Harrison have built a machine for making plastic objects, which is powered by a cordless drill. Made of scrap materials, the device produces hollow, plastic products by rotating a mould on two axis while resins harden inside. The three young designers developed the apparatus to help them learn about industrial, rotational moulding while studying at the University for the Creative Arts in the UK. Watch a movie about the project here. Here's some more information from the designers: To have an idea is one thing, to fully understand the process is paramount to good design. Whilst Studying on a BA honours degree, Product Design students Andrew Duffy, Craig Tyler and Edward Harrison wanted to learn more about a manufacturing process named rotational moulding. The D.I.Y rotation moulding machine was built to replicate the industrial process to help further understand its possibilities.
