I got an email this morning with a bunch of photos of Julian Beever’s pavement drawings. He is a ‘pavement artist’ from the U.K. who does these fantastic forced perspective chalk drawings on sidewalks.
Check out the website – this photo is just a taste of what he can do. It’s pretty amazing.
I think I’ve mentioned how cool these personal supercomputers are from Orion Multisystems. Well they are having a contest to win one for a two week project in life sciences. So all the gene splicers, protein folders and medical imaging types take note. This is coming up quick too, August 2005.
I’ve been going through turmoil and bureaucracy trying to get my phone fixed. I can call out, and my DSL line is okay, but nobody can call in. GTA’s sent out repairmen a couple times and I finally got a straight answer this morning. The problem isn’t the wiring in my house, it’s not the box outside the house, and it’s not the pedestal out on the road. The line from the pedestal to the house is bad – the line underground. The guy this morning couldn’t even begin to give me a timeline; he said he needs to report this problem higher up the foodchain. So if anybody wants to reach me for the foreseeable future, use my cellphone. Heck you can even text me with this new camera phone. Here’s my mobile number: (671) 678-7469. I have no idea when my landline will be working again.
I don’t want to seem like I’m bitching about GTA, their service since privatization last year has improved 200% or more. I remember when I first moved down to Yoña, it took the old government run GTA four months to install my phone line. And forget about getting any service, it was a pointless effort unless you had ‘connections.’ Now they get somebody out to the house in a day or two. That’s much better.
Happy Birthday Jimbo – I’ll toast to your good health today!
Scientists test ‘Bigfoot’ hairs – wouldn’t it be amazing if these DNA tests actually came back with something unexpected? I’ll keep an eye out for the test results, which are expected later this week.
