Should anone ask, treat life as an expriment

Three great tastes come together in this video: Stanford lectures (awesome people talking about awesome things) and IDEO (awesome design) and personal development (becoming even more awesome) come together in this video.


Here is Tom Kelley, General Manager at IDEO

What does concern me through is that sometimes we need to dig in to get beyond the “experiment with everything” phase of our lives. Not everything will be the enjoyable experiment. That said, I have noticed that I work much better on things that I enjoy.  Much! Thoughts?

Should anyone ask, the thunderbox upgrade passed the TÜV inspection

In recent times the TÜV certification process has suffered extreme cutbacks and they are now employing cats to certify new installations.

Here cats inspect the new thunderbox for safety, design and industry standards conformance.



Unfortunately one of the inspectors was off duty after a wasp stung his foot.

Should anyone ask, the "thunder box" has been upgraded.

Dear Cats, Fear ye not the rushing of air as thou relieviest oneself. Allow me to introduce your new and vastly improved ventilation system for the thunderbox.

In the summer I usually keep the cat toilet on my terrace and leave the door open. With Autumn approaching leaving a door open is not going to be easy. Then the cat toilet migrates to the bathroom where it usually smells no matter how often I empty it. The bathroom in my apartment has an extractor fan that runs continuously to create a slight negative pressure. By using this, a hose and a coupling I have extended it the cats toilet thus:


It means a bit of a jump up but the jump is lower than the jump to get their food so if they can jump for the INPUT cycle, an OUTPUT jump shouldn’t be too bad.


An overall view.


Dear visitors, it’s now possible to visit again sans fumigation.

Should anyone ask, housekeeping is underway

I want to be able to go away and not to worry about servers breaking or being out of reach. So I have been taking the first steps to get rid of all the bits that I try to self-host.  First and easiest is the blog. This blog is now on Posterous. Second will be email. I’m planning on moving all imaginator.com email to gmail. Don’t worry, it’ll be mostly seamless. You will still log in at mail.imaginator.com to read it. Just with a much better interface. Unless you tell me otherwise, all your old mail will be migrated over.

I’ll post an announcement nearer the time of the mail migration. This way if a server does go bump in the night, an engineer in Mountain View is paged and not me in Munich or half way up a mountain.

Hope everyone has had a nice summer. Best regards,

Your maintenance crew.
