Astonishing Fractal Animation

Over at Vimeo, someone called teamfresh has produced an astonishingly high definition journey into the depths of the Mandlebrot set. It's about 10 minutes long, so fetch a cup of tea (or perhaps a mild cigar), fire up the HDTV, sit back and enjoy.

A depressing headline from the Carlisle News & Star, spotted outside the post office at Silloth.

I was at Solfest with the Ladybird Project, and took a Sunday morning stroll to Silloth. I wanted to visit the sea again, and look across to Scotland.

There wasn't much to do there. The tide was high, so I couldn't see the beach, just a concrete breakwater. There were good views of Criffel and the new Robin Rigg wind farm, as well as a Lifeboat station.

The post office was open, so I picked up the Westmoreland Gazette for a chance to play Spot the Dog again. The latest anomalous big cat news made the front page, whilst page three reported that a Mercedes had been scratched.

It was one of those mornings where I'm glad I don't live in Cumbria anymore.
