2013-11-01 NEXT WINS INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE, CHANGSHA MEIXI LAKE

NEXT architects is awarded a first prize in an international competition in Meixi Lake besides Changsha capital of Hunan province in China. NEXT designed a bridge that is more than just a connection.  The pedestrian bridge is one of the key projects within the Dragon King Harbor River development part of the vast development of the new lake district. Construction is scheduled for next year.

The bridge is the key project for the development of the public space of the river park with recreational, ecological and touristic program. “The construction with the intersecting connections is based on the principal of the Möbius ring,” states Michel Schreinemachers. “On the other hand it refers to a Chinese knot that comes from an ancient decorative Chinese folk art,” adds John van de Water.

With a total span of more than 150 meter and 24 meters high, the bridge connects a diversity of routings on different heights. The iconic appearance contributes to the developing identity of the area and with its lighting contributes to the whole light routing along the river. It provides both a view on the Dragon King Harbor River as well as Meixi Lake, Changsha and it surrounding mountains.

Yes! Windows still calls the Main Internal  HD the "C" drive and any other drives added become the "D" "E" "F" etc drives. this includes your CD Drives and any external usb sticks plugged in to your computer.

Does windows still call the internal hard drive the C drive? Or can you actually name it as you have been able to do with Macs?

ver Considered Biking Across the Bay to Work? Check Out this Water ...

One Bay Area commuter is urging cities around San Francisco to invest in alternative commute methods, such as his water bike.

Just like the old thermionic valve radios  had an "A" and "B" batteries in them. This nomenclature carried over to transistors which made it hard to understand how a transistor work. But that was all cleared up when I did the electronic phase of my Aircraft Electrician course!

This Question Will Make You Feel Old

Today in feeling old, through Twitter I came across this question on SuperUser, a Q-and-A site "for computer enthusiasts and power users." Ready?

In Windows you have a C: drive. Everything labeled beyond that is with the following letter.
So your second drive is D:, your DVD is E: and if you put in a USB stick it becomes F: and the following drive G:. And so on and so forth.
But then, what and where are A: and B:?

The answer of course is that these are for your floppy disks! Perhaps A: would be for 5.25 inch disks and B: would be for 3.5 inch disks. Or then later you'd have a setup with one or two 3.5 inch drives and a C: drive for your hard disk. That's how computing worked in the 1980s and 1990s before optical disks started making the A: and B: slots obsolete.

That is an interesting idea, Chris.
