The Machines Have Won

This thing puts me to shame.

There’s a blog post by the creator with some more information. Looks like the pancake batter dispenser is pneumatic. Cool.

I have a sudden urge to dig out my kit and make one of these!


Something Silly: SpeedMyst

Anybody who knows me pretty well knows that I’m a big fan of the Myst series of computer games.

The other day, my brothers and I came up with a silly idea. We have all five games practically memorized. Why not see how fast we can get to the ending?

My brothers have been handling the bulk of the SpeedMysting, but I did do Exile last night in one hour, forty-three minutes. Not a bad speed! It’ll probably get beaten soon since I had my youngest brother telling me how to do all the parts I’d forgotten, though. 🙂

And while I’m writing, I guess I’ll say that I haven’t been writing because I’ve been studying and sorting a big bin of LEGO parts. While sorting, my sister and I did a couple of sets of minifigs based on some popular characters. Can you guess who they are?
