Mmmmm, toasty and warm ! Now we're getting into proper summer weather, almost 40°C today, and aiming for 43, 40 and 40 over the next few days. Just like I remember it from growing up in Adelaide [1].

rwrylsin are at the offer-making stage on a house we like - so of course, the owners have just left on holiday to the UK for a month. This makes the back-and-forth from us to the agent to them rather time-consuming.

Only a few weeks to go until the Melbourne Summer Cycle - please sponsor me, proceeds go towards research into MS, and services to help people living with MS.

Last weekend was Brickvention, and a lot of fun it was too. Good turnout for the convention part on Saturday, and around 1000 people came through the public display on Sunday !

While there, I had an amusing idea, so I built it on Saturday night :

Emergency brick separator 1

... ok, maybe only amusing to Lego fans. And I need to take a better photo of it ...

[1] It may not have actually *been* like that, but it's how I remember it :-)

Given that Adelaide is looking at similar temperatures for the same time time frame, I'd say it's totally appropriate.

Also, http://www.earthsci.unimelb.edu.au/~awatkins/melbtemp.html is showing we've gone over 42 today already.

I didn't realise from the Flickr photo that this was your own creation. Well done!

Are the l12 arge round red knobs holding the "glass" in the tops of bits of Duplo? It sort of looks like the sides are 4x2s or 6x2s, but I'm probably misreading this, and Lego has presumably gone and built more weirdo specialised bits in the last ten years...

Er, ignore that. All (well, most) is revealed in the next photo. The sides are 6x1 and 4x1 tiles, turned to face the front by those cunning little 1x1x1 "cube" thingies.

Good luck with the house!
