And you can tell that bloody lion to stop following me, too... Jun. 2nd, 2004 04:29 pm
OW. That wardrobe is turning into a right bastard. I've now stepped through the thing enough times that I qualify for a Narnian passport and, for comedy value, have a blister from too much hard screwing. All this in a room that's about 2 foot larger than the wardrobe.

For some reason all my decent large screwdrivers have also vanished, so I might be going to find a decent hardware store tomorrow morning and buying a really high quality kit, so that I can make sure all the joints on this thing are completely tight before I put (what exists of) the back on.

One a more positive note my code from phase.org is now suitable for release; the functionality is very limited but allows the user to run a basic site displaying an LJ-backed journal and RSS feeds as desired. A writeup and documentation will follow shortly-ish on that site.

I tend to avoid expensive screwdriver sets, as i find the more you spend on a tool the more likely it is to disappear into an alternate dimension the moment your backs turned. Cheaper tools aren't as clever, and therefore have no real aims in life. Hence my £5 set of tools from Homebase all do their job and are all still here. Unlike my Swiss army knife cybertool which is constantly going walkabout.
