Layering pictures

<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr><td>1. Nice blouse</td> <td>2. Turtleneck on cold days, although I usually skip this</td> <td>3. Good wind-resistant fleece</td> <td>4. Coat 1</td> <td>5. Coat 2, if absolutely necessary</td></tr> </table>

And of course a hat or toque, a scarf, a pair of fleece gloves, a pair of fleece mitts over the gloves, socks, possibly another pair of socks, and winter boots.

1. Microcommerce

Categories: None -- Permalink
What do I need to do in order to get a little microcommerce around here?

I have a very real problem: buying groceries in small quantities is tough. I want to be able to buy and sell extra groceries, but I want to limit transactions within the building. (I don't want to have to walk out!) Some things I'd be willing to buy and sell further off, I suppose, but I'd love to have classifieds just for Graduate House.

So I need classifieds that are easy to monitor. Special considerations for groceries would also be useful (example: expiration date, being able to easily track how many units are left). I want RSS feeds with fancy criteria. =) We can handle payment offline, so that isn't really a concern.

Hmmm. Sounds like a fun thing to build over Christmas. Plus points if it hooks into Mambo, I suppose.

2. Aggregators

My research supervisor is tickled pink by the blog aggregator I put up the other day. He likes being able to see all of our personal life stories on one page. Who would've thought?

Alvin and I agreed that something like that would get far more and far fresher content than a new blog just for IML. We're learning our lesson from all of these little half-blogs scattered all over the place...

3. Layered clothes pictures

My mom's been asking me for winter clothing pictures for ages. =) Check out the pics at http://sacha.sachachua.com/notebook/wiki/2005.11.30.php . Here's a quick animation:

Ogres are like onions. They have layers.
