How to borrow e-books from the Wellington City (NZ) Libraries

My son has received a Kobo Mini e-book reader over the school holidays, and he enjoys reading from it.  It has become his nightly habit, prior to turning in for the night.  Here is a quick tutorial on how to borrow e-books from the Wellington City Libraries.

User profile service failed the logon

This problem came out this morning with my wife's Windows 7 computer.  After some unsuccessful attempts using tips from the Microsoft website, I came across this video tutorial.


Thanks iYogi!

3D Printing

I wonder when 3D printing will truly reach mass market affordability.  I, for one, see this as an exciting technology.  Think about the stuff we can make from this!

And now, even food can be printed.  I thought this was still on the drawing board.  But is there a prototype already?  I read somewhere that printing food will be of importance in space travel.

The 3D Printer Manufacturer I am familiar with is MakerBot; they have made huge leaps and strides towards making 3D printing plausible, but at the current price of USD 2,800.00, it is still a rich man's toy (or a business-level endeavour!).
