Kunstler notwithstanding, this podcast with Ann Sussman about the neuroscience of architecture (buildings) is really interesting:

I just can't get over how great StreetComplete is. It looks fantastic, is incredibly easy to use, and actually makes it fun to contribute data about the Real World for the benefit of everyone.

If you run Android, be sure to give it a try: #OpenStreetMap #StreetComplete

Wherein I stumble through a description of how Homemaker uses Christopher Alexander's Pattern Language to evolve buildings:

High-quality free ePub books of classics literature —

These are built from existing, public-domain etexts at Project Gutenberg, but human edited for structure and typographic detail. (And other, more boring, non-typography things like cover art)

The purpose of this is to get a 'taper' transform that actually works.

Networking boggle: 

This house has thick walls, so in addition to the WiFi on the broadband router, I have connected two more access points via cat5. The secondary points are in 'bridging mode', with static addresses, all with the same WiFi SSID/key.
I can seamlessly connect to each point in turn using android, iOS, windows, Linux devices.
But we have a 'smart tv' that is only happy connecting to one of the access points, and an Android phone that is only happy connecting to the other, any clues?
