I just wanted to stop in and thank everyone who attended my art panel at Cyan last weekend- it was so lovely meeting all y’all, and it warmed the very cockles of my heart to see such an enthusiastic reaction to my sketches and ramblings.
I should be posting a link to the MoietyPunk and Mo D’ni, Mo Problems shirts, as well as a site to browse through my Myst journals, some time in the very near future- I’ve got a lot coming up in the next couple of weeks (moving, conventions, and a very Myst-appropriate trip to Iceland) so thanks for hanging in there. <3
For over fifty years, Pyestock was host to the development and testing of gas turbine engines. From the 1950s through to the 1970s, it was the largest facility of its type in Europe (if not the world), and the design, experimentation and testing at Pyestock helped to usher in the jet age. [x]
"I invented a desk in which the books I had to study were arranged in order at the beginning of each term… after the minutes allowed for dressing had elapsed, a click was heard and the first book to be studied was pushed up from a rack below the top of the desk, thrown open, and allowed to remain there the number of minutes required. Then the machinery closed the book and allowed it to drop back into its stall, then moved the rack forward and threw up the next in order, and so on, all the day being divided according to the times of recitation, and time required and allotted to each study."
