These are a few of my favorite things
Thanks for taking the time to read. And thanks for all the feedback, I'm glad you like the stuff I like ;)
Here is this week's three. Enjoy.
Have a good one.
1. Walking Pretoria
So glad when I saw this, haven't been on one yet.. I like to get lost on my own, being a flaneur (of sorts). In the near future, the walkscore of your property will dramatically add to its value. Walking is the new way to commute.
The Louwkuls (clever name), is hosting walking tours through the gorgeous capital, Walks include prominent historical sites such as Church Square, the Union Building, the Old Jewish Synagogue and the City hall precinct but also intrigue walkers with new developments such as the TRT stations, the 012 Central Sheds and the new Lilian Ngoyi square which is still under construction.
Contact the Louwkuls for more info
2. Pretty Routers
I think we can all agree, routers are a necessary evil. Usually ugly, with stupid user interfaces. FINALLY that is changing. Have no idea why this took so long. The Kisslink router sets up a link with you merely holding your device close the panel. No passwords now nothing. How cool is that?
And, this week, I bought a TP link wifi range extender, I set it up without connecting it via cable to my computer, with just the press of two buttons, one on the extender and one on the other router. How great?
3. Work from home, but nicely.
Since we are on routers.. The way people work is changing fast, working from home (or anywhere is more possible than ever).
But who wants to sit in a crummy converted washroom? Mimima Moralia is a modular pop-up studio/office. The naked minimalistic structure features a modular steel frame that creates an empty grid with multiple internal configurations, you can add shelves, desks, artificial lights, and curtains can be provided to meet the user’s needs.
Come on SA Architects, give us our own...
