moos and lost notebooks from 1995

back in the mid 90s or so I used to hang out on a couple of moos with some of the outlook crowd. I found one of my old notebooks on the bookshelf during this trip home and it has some of my notes on how to connect and lists the urls etc also. I used to use the name Alia back then though the name became too popular so a few years later I added the K for Kath/Kathy and became AliaK. one of the pages has my notes on how to request my name.

here's some of the notebook pages. I used to make the notebooks out of old 5.25" floppy disks and recycled paper from work - these disks weren't being used as often by this stage.. amazing how times change!!

I remember making a hammock that swung softly when someone sat in it and a room called blacony - nothing too flash compared to what the others were doing but it all worked ok! one day I'll have to go through some old disks and see if I can find any files from back then, that's if the disks even spin up at all..

workshop : GPS for Artists - workshop notes & links

::: location:

- class exercise showing how gps uses 3-4 satellites to track a location

- originally the military built gps
- variance - this was removed recently which meant the accuracy of commercial (non-military) gps devices increased

- you need line of sight to 3-4 satellites (3 for location, 4th for altitude); 3 minimum

- sometimes in cities, reflections from buildings stop the signals being received
