10,000 views. Note bad for a blog run out of my bedroom.
I actually hit 10,000 views at the end of May, which was the same time you last heard from me on this site. That’s because I was busy getting this ready:
Solar FREAKIN’ Roadways.
Roads, that are solar panels. They are photo-voltaic panels that turn your morning commute into the closest you’ll ever get to a Tron Light-Cycle Race.
“That’s just a pic with Photoshop editing. Stop wasting my time with artists renditions” you say. Maybe you’re an important business man with a place to be. Or just an insufferable dick.

An engaging reality, though disapointingly a little simplistic. My hope was for something dark and gritty, with a deep sense of what had created the train and the multi-varied pressures shaping it’s inhabitants.
What in fact I found was a strong central concept, but something that felt shallow and weakly fleshed out. Bordering on a film noir-ish setting, the adventure ‘up to first class’ was suitably break neck, though the constant drum banging about ‘the first class suppressing the second and third’ wore very thin only a quarter of the way into the book.
That said, volume two promises to be ‘outside the train’, and I look forward to seeing the film, if only for the atmosphere and my own sense of closure :)

We are using all kinds of recycled containers, e.g. plastic bottles, pots, buckets. The containers are stacked into “towers”.
Today, I will describe the way how to start a “bottle tower”, illustrating the different steps with some photos:
