LED Light Tube Bicycle Light

January 17, 2012

Light Tube Bike Light

Quick creation for my bike. Light tube from Poundland, and a torch mount for rifle barrels from eBay.

I am really impressed by what a great bike light it makes. Cost around £3.50, and much brighter than most LED rear lights.

I keep a small Knog light on my bike however, just in case. It was from Poundland after all!

DIY Library Catalogue Computer

June 17, 2011
Or how to create a Library Catalogue Computer for free(ish), with whatever you have in the store cupboard, using Linux and the tame e-resources Librarian (That’s me).
The Library where I work has so far been succumbing to my evil machinations, specifically on the theme ‘Put Linux on everything that doesn’t work properly’. I have no desire to constantly fiddle with unreliable IT resources, not when I have far more productive things to do.
Our newish Linux Web server and Content Management System has been, if not a roaring success, at least a loud hurrah. And it hasn’t caused me a single significant problem since I hit the ‘online’ switch.  And it’s cheap, which is jolly good news.

My salad bring all the vegetarians to my yard, and they’re like, it’s significantly crunchier than ours.

My herb and salad garden seems to be going great. Without any pesticides and only organic fertiliser. It is strange to think only a few months ago this was nothing but an overgrown pile of broken glass and numerous large unidentifiable metal objects.

The wooden stakes? They are a frame for a DIY cloche I made to speed up the growth of the seedlings with sheets of recycled plastic painting sheets. It worked a treat!
