Although I conquer

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

Although I conquer all the Earth,
yet for me there is only one city.

In that city there is for me only one house;
And in that house, one room only;
And in that room, a bed.

And one woman sleeps there,
the shining joy and jewel of all my kingdom.

– Sanskrit Poem, translated by John Brough.

Home Lighting

Monday, February 19th, 2007

Lighting is important to me. I’ve been gathering materials on lighting since I optioned my flats. Here are my notes.

Good general tips, including some tips on the new-fangled MonoRail Lighting (really cool! But I think you need a high ceiling for this. Alas.) system here.

I am very enamoured about the idea of using LEDs, but it’s very expensive and here is a myth-buster on LEDs. Of course there are cheaper alternatives.

Color Temperature is important. Here’s an article that shows you what 3000k and 5,500K looks like.

Energy consumption is a factor, so I’ve decided on a combination of LEDs (for task lighting), CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Lamps) for general usage.

My wannabe apartment

It’s small, it’s causing me a lot of pain and it is costing me a lot of money, but by God, it’s mine.

The original mess. The damn dimensions don’t make much sense and they don’t fit either.

original

The current crap. More doors than sense.

Current

The future wannabe. That is, if I manage to get my proposals approved.

Recognition

Finally, while the association believes that good works are only to be recognized by God and the rewards are in Heaven, I have always felt that some earthly recognition should be forth-coming. I am happy for her.

It is one thing to mouth off about charity and causes and another to actually do something about it. With limited resources.

Thirty plus years of quiet devotion; By love serve one another.
