Then get someone else to take it! XD Or just look odd and take 14 pictures until your sure at least ONE of them has to be good :P
I just thought of something. Somewhere at work there's currently a fairly recent photo of me, but that would require me to think of it when I'm there, which is always a big uncertainty. And if I took 14 pictures of myself I'm fairly sure there would be something wrong with every one of them. I'm a lousy auto-photographer. :-X

Write it really big on your forehead and then people will point at you and look at you oddly. Then you'll HAVE to remember!

Write with what? Because a) it has to come off again as soon as I am finished with the task but b) it has to stay one until I have finished it. Anyway, even withut the big text on my forehead I already managed to copy the jpg to my HDF but a) I forgot to mail it to my home account and b) it's too late now to start bringing out the floppy disc stuff and get out a floppy disk and so forth, so you'll have to wait a little longer.
Racx: which house, the one that's still in the works or the one that's finished? :P

By popular demand, I bring you:
CC!

EDIT: somehow, my image was removed. ::)
2nd edit: and I think I replaced it with the wrong one at first.

As I 'touched' some posts before, a short while ago (almost) everybody at work had (to have) their picture taken and recently we learned why: to put on the intranet. So, all I had to do was locate mine, grab it and transfer it to my home pc, resize it so it didn't stretch the forum and there you go. 8)

Not very likely. ::)

That's not good, Linux's thumbnails display a previous image if they come across a filename that's been used before. :-\

Now you see it (from the front)...

And now you don't.

Time for another update I guess:


And that concludes the inner hull.


Isolation may not be good for me, but insulation is good for a house.


The roof of the ceiling floor.


Reinforcement of the ceiling floor.

And the 'pièce de résistance' today: The ground floor of the back side has been completely 'bricked', and they've already started with the roof/ceiling-floor.
EDIT: It seems a forum-update messed around with my 'è'. :-\

Time to bring this baby back to the first page with some more updates!


The roof, still under construction.


The chimney. However, if Saint Nic is planning to deliver presents trough there, he's going to have to make himself pretty thin to fit through there AND find a way to break through the concrete wall that's at the bottom of that chimney (it's not attached to any heating device (yet).


The side of the house with the front door, completely finished (bricked).


The top floor is now completely unaccessible from the oustide, and since the ladder on the inside reaching up has not been installed yet, is completely unaccessible.


And finally, one side of the roof is now complete.
The other side, that's another matter, because that's where a solar collector will have to be placed, but the people who have to place the solar collector don't have time before next Friday, and that side of the roof is supposed to be completely finished this Saturday. Since I can't reach the roof workers, I've left a piece of paper at the construction site telling them to call me on my cell phone when they get there. I hope they don't arrive too soon so I can get some decent sleep before that happens, because on that same day I'll have to leave for my holiday and on that holiday I know I'm going to get some sleep deprivation. :-\

And now, something completely different: the snazzy car, part2!


I had to change some things due to regulatory problems (the law has been changed recently and I did not have the necessary papers to attest the changes to the car had been approved), so it's a little less snazzy (the room between the tires and the 'chassis' has increased by a rew cms). But, at least you'll get to see the darkened rear windows, and the special tires. 8)

Small update this time, work has slowed down considerably.


 :o They forgot a part! [size=0](By my request.)[/size]


And THAT's why.
PS: Yes, I know the second picture's a lot darker than the first one, but just look at the sky and you'll see why. And yes, I already changed the brightness.

Skylight? Yeah right, ain't nothing in that attic but heating equipment. ;-D
EDIT: Actually, at the moment the only thing that's up there is some roof tiles left over. If one of the tiles currently on my roof gets damaged in any way, I still have the original type to replace them with. And in the future, besides the heating equipment, it's also going to serve as a big storage room. 8)
Solar power on the other hand... almost right. Nah, this one's just for water-heating purposes. Solar power (electricity) is planned for next year. Have to take into account the limit on tax reductions after all. :scholar:

And now, my 'muse' (?sp), i.e. the only one that can inspire me to produce something one might call a form of poetry. It's a shame I only see her on special gatherings of a group I'm part of, which is an average of about twice a year. :-[
