Come Off It

Today is Come Off It day, when people are being encouraged to cut their electricity consumption and send a message that there are better ways to cut CO2 production than building nuclear power stations.

If every house saves just a few Watts, that’s one less new power station that we need to build. And if every house saves 100W through simple actions like switching off a light that’s not really needed, or being careful not to overfill the kettle, we’d save not one power station but several.

Rugby Central Station Model (2)

For those who remember my post a little while ago, i’m constructing a scale model of the now demolished Rugby Central railway station.

I’ve started to apply brick paper which was printed out on my rather old HP Deskjet 550C. It’s a respectable quality even though all it’s capable of is a rather low resolution when compared to todays printers. I think the model is starting to take shape…
