If you do not desire much, even small things will look big.
I am glad to announce that from tomorrow on this site will feature translations of articles written by author Carlos Bellido. Here is a little about him:
Carlos holds a MS in Computer Science by the University of Zaragoza. He writes articles related to Computer Game Development in his own blog, The long Tomorrow (in spanish). Most of these articles are of a technical nature; however, from time to time he also writes on his reflections about gaming and games. We will periodically feature translations of these articles.
Look forward to Carlos’ articles, starting with “Girls and video games”.

Than staplers at work!
“Vanitas vanitatis, et omnia staplers”: VirtualStapler is a little lovely site which covers everything you ever wanted to know about staplers, including some aspects that you probably never thought of. The site´s main attraction is the interactive piece featured on the front page, which brings attention to an underrated yet often indispensable action, and will relieve many compulsive staplers out of the office. Several virtual staplers are included for a staple-of-the-art recreation, and many others are covered in a comprehensible gallery. Even more, you can download several stapler-themed computer desktops, and I highly recommend reading the Stapler poetry, from where I took the haiku above.
All in all, a must- visit! 😀

Use FlipFOLD for folding your pants, shorts, skirts…even towels and sheets!
Some days ago I wrote about an easy technique to fold Tshirts by hand. I have been using it since then with good results, though the technique renders irregular results: some shirts look better folded than others, some of them are better centered…
The figures below have been made by my friend Xerome by folding carefully chosen tree leaves. I consider him an expert in origami, able not only to fold the most intricate models but also to create new ones of his own. With these new creations he has gone a step farther in his art, not only being able to fold the leaves as if they were normal paper but also to bring hidden shapes out of them in a series of impressive masks. As far as he and I know nobody has ever done this before, but beyond the novelty of the technique I believe that these figures show an artistry that very few people can achieve.
Update 26.02.06 I added a picture of Xerome taken at the Origami meeting which took place this weekend in Santiago.
an abreviation for PLay In WheelS(…) two wheeled flashing roller skate that attaches to the heel of your skate or sport type shoe(…) you can fit them to your favourite shoes and as your feet grow or you change shoe preference, you can simply adjust them to suit the new shoe instead of being limited to the pair of the shoes with the wheels in them!
On my way back from Canada (which I like more every time I go, though Ottawa’s streets are really slippery in winter) to Santiago I went through Amsterdam, so I had to stay at the Schiphol airport for a few hours. I decided to spend the time visiting the airport rather than sleeping, mainly because sleeping wouldn’t make me feel any better but also because the three times I have been there this was the first one where I could actually Continue reading Meet the Pliws!
