Once a week, Jon Pickup of Archoncad, sends out a rather good review of things he's done or taught over the week, this week I was reading through, and thought what a great week he had, the list is a throwback to some pretty basic stuff, but that so often is the best CPD, his back to basic series offers some dam good advice vi the Archoncad learn site! the videos are part of his Learn club and you have to be a member to read it, and watch the videos.
If your in Birmingham this week, there are several exhibitions on, I will be attending the timber expo at the NEC, on Tuesday, it's the industry major bash, with a lot of great products. I shall be there most of the morning into lunch, so if you see me, say hello.
I want to make more use of timber in my work, I think ash with all it's problems offers a great opportunity for us! as a cladding of detail material.
The photo today is of a small clump of mushrooms I saw whilst walking, absolutely nothing to do with CPD, other than observation, not walking blindly past something interesting, and not recording it for later use.
The real question is how do mushrooms manage to grow here on the side of the road.
Blogsy, my favourite blogging app, has a problem with the new OS for the iPad, it's not a big one, I seem to be getting a crash when I try to add a link to a work, hence the lack o links today, I send a note to the owner on Sunday, and got an immediate reply, asking for more detail, I sent this together with a couple of screen grabs, and got a nice thank you email, now that's dedication to your product.
As there are several ways to add links, I have just used the other, but Sunday and working,,,,,,,,
As for the new OS for my iPad, it took several hours to download last Thursday, and so far all is fine, I like the way it looks and works, and apart from blogsy, all my apps seems to behaving. It has forced on me the front screen login, something I was meaning to do, but never managed to get sorted, and I now get a lot of tweets and other notification on the opening screen, I have these down to what want now so overall I like the new OS, and as far as battery is consented, no change as far as I can see.
