Benoit Mandelbrot dies

Monday, 18 October 2010 at 02:18
The 'father of fractal geometry' has died this week aged 85. I've always thought these pictures hold a magic not seen in any other place. That they appear from simple equations and go on forever in complexity we can't fathom is just mind blowing. 
I remember downloading a free fractal program once and mucking about with it for hours. The shapes that are created are so beautiful and intriguing, truly like looking into the mind of God! 

Ways to earn money on line

Sunday, 3 October 2010 at 01:05
Well this is the ongoing topic of so many blogs, thought I'd give my take.
 I've been trying to make some money via the web for about 2 years now. I use or have used survey sites, adsense, traffic referal sites, ptc,  independent ad companies, social networks and ebay.
 So far I've not made enough money even to replace my mouse =/
 So what am I doing wrong? I dunno, I guess I haven't tried everything out there yet (there are still article writing sites and others to explore). But the thing that gets me is that it is possible to earn some decent money on  line but there are so many scams and opps that pay less than 1p an hour that it's almost impossible to find the legit ones. Ah well :)
Any tips would be cool :)

Silly joke for you:-

You know when you see Geese flying in a 'V' formation, one side of the V is always longer than the other..
You know why that is ?

  It has more Geese..... 

Sorry for the awful joke lol :-)

All at sea

Saturday, 31 July 2010 at 16:25
 I've just got back from a few days away, camping in the New Forest, a national park here in the UK. Took in a castle, Roman ruin, beaches and a whole lot of trees!

This was the campsite

The seaside

The biggest, scariest ant nest i've ever seen ! 

And this is a payphone where the strong box that the money drops into was missing and the locals provided a alternative collection method ! he-he, this wouldn't work elsewhere !

Lastly a pic i took at Butterfly world a while ago, just cos its cool :)

Another night ends

Wednesday, 21 July 2010 at 06:30

So it's 6:26 am, a time of day I don't see that often. Been up all night, watching Bill Hicks, Dylan Moran and Richard Pryor stand up and having some beers. Although I'm alone right now I pretty much feel great! Listening to Bobby Dylan on the hphones and sipping a chilly beer... And I can still type, result ;)
  This picture is in Wendover woods near to me. I had to stop to snap those roots, greedy tree, it's taking what it needs ;)

June and raining

Friday, 18 June 2010 at 18:36
I just checked and I've not updated this blog for ages, oops... I have been so busy with 101 things; guitar making  
mostly but other stuff too. Been to a wedding in London with a fantastic reception on a cruse up the Thames, very cool stuff! Now I got to try and think of something to put on here, ummm hmm.. .
  Saw a funny film the other night, Mary and Max. It's an old fashioned stop-motion animation, excellently done. I never usually like any kind of animated film but this one is damn funny and a really cool story. If you are bored and fancy something pretty refreshing I'd recommend :]

Here are a few pics :
The boat interior :

My partner and her two boys on ones 18th birthday

Apparently 'Keith's' aren't allowed to play lotto =( 

A few guitars

Friday, 21 May 2010 at 18:12
Just a quick update, im so busy *sigh* *looks for sympathy ;)

Sawdust in my coffee

Thursday, 13 May 2010 at 01:37
So I've been busy in the shed over the last month, and I now have a bit of wood that looks abit like a guitar body, yay ! Granted I spent most of that time putting up shelves and making a workbench and other stuff to make the shed more workshoppy, but I do have a little progress !

This is the mainly before piccys :-

And this is the mainly after :)

I must say it is a fun thing to do but man, there are sooooooooooo many little things that you need to either have or know to tackle some of it it boggles me! 
Will be good to have an electric guitar again once im done:)
 I have been thinking about putting up a step-by-step guide here but Im not sure if anyone is really interested to tell the truth, its technical and all that so not everyone's cup of sawdusty tea :)
Oh in a fit of teenage-throwback (I was something of a 'goth' but once upon a time^^) Ive decided to name the guitar ....... THE RAVEN ! hehhe xD 
Here's a suitable pic, best raven pic i could find! 

I don't want to get on the cart!

Friday, 7 May 2010 at 01:21
I'm not dead.. :]

Just to let people know I haven't updated this blog for a while as I've been too busy with sorting out a shed-to-workshop conversion thing. I'll update with lots of pics soon :)

Just a quick post

Friday, 16 April 2010 at 19:06
This pic made me lol so im sharing :]

Some of my sketches, work in progress!

Saturday, 10 April 2010 at 20:16

Here are some of the sketches I've done so far. The design isn't final (by far), I'll most likely get through 4 or more revisions of the shape before getting the nuts to cut out a router template!
Have decided the woods though; Brazilian mahogany with a deep chocolate stain for the main body. A book matched  herringbone inlay and brass (no expense spared :p) details. The neck is from a birds eye maple with an ebony fretboard, with undecided marker materials.
Using 2 humbuckers with this but not chosen the machine heads yet.
Nothing is final as I said.. It could change completely before I get to the cutting!

Going to make some guitars!

Wednesday, 7 April 2010 at 13:58
So, Ive got the chance to start off a project making some guitars in my shed (the garden cupboard). I know nothing about this of course, other than watching a few youtube movies. I have my list of materials and tools written up plus ive drawn a 1:1 plan of a body and peghead shape I designed. Next stop the tool stores.! 
Wish me luck and if I stuff it all up too badly I'll be selling some really posh mahogany toilet seats soon! ;)
Ill post a picture log of my progress if anyone is interested.

Some of the things I spent my youth with ^^

Woman falls in love with a ..

Wednesday, 24 February 2010 at 02:41
So I was flicking through this woman's magazine, like you do when there is absolutely nothing else to read and saw this story about a woman who has a life long love for a London bus. She has  a collection of little model buses and related things and visits the London transport museum once a week to visit her, um, lover. I'm thinking the whole time that this is surely a wind up, but no. Its completely for real... 
Made me think a couple of things; First that this magazine was exploiting a woman with a severe mental illness, and second 
WTF ? ? ? ? ? ?

And I thought that after a good amount of years sifting through random things on the internet that nothing could surprise me. I was wrong !

 Sooo, what's the strangest thing you have fallen in love with? 
I'd honestly be really interested to find out :-)


This is cool!

Thursday, 18 February 2010 at 19:58
I want to do this ! :-)

Jump? I almost dropped my bamboo!

Sunday, 14 February 2010 at 21:43
Made me smile :]

Happy Valentine's day to all

Saturday, 13 February 2010 at 00:50
So it's Val's day again tomorrow. Been going since 496 AD apparently, set up by one Pope Gelasius I.
 Whatever you are doing, partner or no, have a good one :]

Starting a fund

Wednesday, 10 February 2010 at 04:12

Ok a little experiment. I am for the best part always skint. That is I virtually never have any spare cash past about 5-10 pounds. Its always accounted for. Buying something new or going out is a 2 months+ planning and saving exercise. Its not like I dont eat or anything, theres no real sob story. Its just I never do anything ! Cant afford it :/ So after reading a few things around the web I'll give this a go and ask on the internets to help!
 I plan to raise as much as possible from donations from around the world to *do something I could never otherwise afford (TM)*, the nature of which will be decided by the amount raised. I will then of course write up the event on this blog :] 
So, there we go, line cast into the generosity of people out there and fingers crossed.
 You can also give me suggestions about what to do if you like. I have never for instance travelled, left England  or well done much really ;p Other than some gardening and going to the pub. 
  So if you can help I will forever be grateful :-) 
(you can use the paypal donate thing at the bottom of the blog
ty ty ty =)

Tick tock..

Tuesday, 9 February 2010 at 01:58
So i've done something a little silly... See I ordered a new graphics card for my computer and its being delivered tomorrow morning, early'o'clock tomorrow morning. Its currently 2am ish here and I gotta stay up to take the thing. I just dont function with alarms, and i dont stand a chance of getting up in time if I go to bed now.
 So im clock watching for the next six or so hours,
tum ti tum! la la, yeah bored already !
Bah ;)

Anyone think of a caption?

Saturday, 6 February 2010 at 01:55
Come on, will take you a few secs ;)
Prize of 100,000 internet points for the funniest! :-)

I dont like dancing

Wednesday, 3 February 2010 at 22:04

I've never understood the compulsion some people have to move their bodies to music.It just doesn't light any bulbs inside me... In fact I wouls go as far as to say that when I see people dancing they appear, well, less than 'ok' to me. Its like they're all being hypnotised by some seedy stage show magician intent on robbing them of dignity.
 'Stop that!' I'd love to say. 'Cant you see what you all look like?!' but I know it wouldn't help. They're already lost to this foolish urge to bob about like turkeys dodging bullets.
 I dont want to offend anyone, I firmly believe that where some things are right for some people those same things are utter pants to the next person and neither are right. It's up to the individual. I just felt the urge to blab about how I feel on the subject...If you are a dancer and you enjoy it then good for you :-) 
(even if you look like a hallucinating gibbon ;p) ! 


Cupboard Love! buy me a Guinness ! :-)
