Air Con Responsibly

Conditioning the air is done by using a process known as ‘free cooling’, in which a coolant absorbs hot air, allowing the cooling coils to pump out cold air. It’s slightly more science-y than all that, but those are the basic principles. But you can look at a graph showing the inside of an air-conditioning …

Back in the Game

Awesome, the lifetime ban has been lifted! The Darville family have been banned from the Yarraville Fishing Competition for…oh, about fifteen years now? I was really young when it happened, but I remember it casting a cloud on the entire family. We built our honour on fishing, were upstanding members of the fishing community, all …

Imagine Pest Controllers

Oh, well, it just seems there’s a service for everything in this realm. We had the basics, like shoemaking and leather tanning, but where I’m from if you wanted something done, then you could jolly well do it yourself. Termites in your home? Well, prepare yourself for many hours and days or gruelling labour, involving …

Double Reno

With the main house finally completed, you’d think it would be time to kick back and celebrate. But no – we’re moving onto the guesthouse now. Why? Because we have a wedding party renting it from us in just three months’ time, and Jim promised them it would be up to scratch. I mean, it’s …

Decking Out My Room

As a quick glance at pretty much any of my school-books will tell you, I’m all into personalisation. Just having a plain exercise book with my name written on the front isn’t enough. No…every single thing I own has to reflect me. That’s the rule. It’s a great rule, ten points to your particular house. …

Windows, Not Tapes

Good grief, I seriously wish animation studio Biz-ney would stop re-releasing their old classics, except going from live-action to animated. What is wrong with live-action anyway? Live-action is timeless, because people are pretty much always going to look like people. Whereas fifty years from now, people are going to look at these animated remakes and …

Treasure Hunters, Assemble!

The Melbourne Treasure Hunting Society has grown exponentially in the last few months. Six new people, and three of them have actually stayed! With such an influx in membership, we need to start talking about options; specifically, options we have in regards to boats. Currently, we have…one. And it’s not huge, so we can’t all …

Powerful Panes

If it were up to me, then all this glass I’ve come into possession of would be used to construct my Doom Laser 2.0, with new and better features, more responsive controls and the ability to wipe out and compatibility with more gaming platforms. I was well underway before my financing company thwarted my plans, …

Oxygen To Go

It’s really quite amazing that you can get portable hyperbaric chambers nowadays. I used to worry about travelling, hoping that I wouldn’t have any breathing problems while I’m away from home. Now, the whole thing can just be shipped off to Perth, which means I can visit Gina and Darcy in Perth over the summer …

Dance, Power Station

If energy could be generated via dance, I would have UNLIMITED POWER! Our whole family could have unlimited power. In fact, I’ve never properly looked into it. I know you can generate power via cycling on an exercise bike, so surely dance must be a viable alternative. Oh, you say you need the power of …
