3W28 – A dream come true

2 07 2008

Finally, after one year of hard work and research on Doctors of the World I can be a part of this great humanitarian organization. On the 12th of July I am going to fly with them to Kyrgyzstan for a week, on a surgery mission of around 100 kids.

I will upload some photos when I get back.





3W27 – a big thanks

23 06 2008

It seems everything are in order… essay, final project, blog site etc.

I would like to thank every one that helped out to setup our exibition at Camberwell and It is pitty that I can not  be there. A special thanks to Anthos for taking care of my project.





3W26 – Exporting WordPress

14 06 2008

Andy asked us to deliver him a CD/DVD of assessment evidence.

This is a small tutorial how you can export your WordPress Blog site to ftp

1) In your web site (blog site) go to Dashboard -> Manage -> Export and press Download Export File at the bottom. Save to Disk

2) go to http://www.blogbooker.com and press PDF on the top left hand corner -> select WordPress -> and in the first field where it says WordPress XML Export browse for your XML file the one you export in step1. At the place where it says Blog URL just fill in your wordpress web site…for example https://dotworld.wordpress.com. Select font size, kind of fond and press create your BlogBook

Good Luck 😉

3W25 – Must See!!!

14 06 2008

I was doing some research on the net trying to find how, when why etc the mind influence the Artist and I came across this outstanding film about a young autistic artist is taken up in a helicopter over Rome, and then, over the next 3 days, draws it ALL by memory. Just remember to pump up the volume since the recording is very quiet.





3W24 – New Chat

14 06 2008

Today we had a chat in a new environment chat place where it use Java. Unfortunately I couldn’t join at that time cause of my IT at work which is not allowed any Java application and also we are behind firewall which is not allowed some ports. I hope we don’t use that chat environment, because it is very hard to get off work every Thursday and use my PC at home to chat.

Anyways one way or another I have gather the info from the chat which was mostly focused on the details of the final exhibition. I did send an email to Andy to send me if possible the chat log but it was a bit of a mess since at that time they used voice chat as well – but this log has only the written part
