Day #2557Title: Fleeced
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: The board game Fleeced, which we attempted to play this evening at my New Year Party. It was very complicated! Based on the Wallace & Gromit characters, the idea is to rustle sheep from various places around the board and lead them home. I was playing Preston!

Day #2407Title: Speed Test
Location: City Museum, Leeds
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: Another day spent at LeedsHack today, this time finishing off our projects and showing them off in a presentation to the other participants. Alistair is usually guaranteed to come up with something either fun and silly or very impressive technically. This weekend, he went for the fun option – cobbling together this Wifi Speed-o-Meter to tell us how much of the internet the wifi was having to cope with. I loved the scale, which ranged from “Everyone is Asleep”, through “Just A Bit”, “About That Much”, “Quite A Lot” and “Over The Top”, all the way to “All Of The Internets”. A contraption, I feel, of which Wallace & Gromit would have been proud. He’s a big fan, so I know where he gets his inspiration!
