.svg files

Someday I will do something with .svg files that can produce scalable images. Here's one I discovered today on wikipedia. Look at the source code of the image for the .svg details. Note the 'embed' tag was used to present the image. Created with Inkscape ( is the attribution within the .svg code.

Hoffman Box - DIY in the kitchen

A Hoffman box is an enclosure used to secure electrical and/or network equipment, and is used in such things as a protected distribution system. -

I am trying to perfect Pet-Pals for J2ME distribution on camera phones and I needed to pass a gnarly part of the Java Verified process performed by NSTL. To make my own Hoffman box I put the Nokia E71 into a small sauce pan inside a large sauce pan inside a larger pot with lids over all inside the oven. This combination gives great signal isolation. I do NOT recommend you cook a casserole at the same time.
