New Railing

Posted in Arieanna & Ianiv, Home Decor

Yesterday, our new railing was installed. We’re getting the railing installed between the dining room and sunken living room (as shown here), as well as up the stairs (to be completed next week).

The spindles are from BH Woodturning:

The railing is not bamboo, but was stained to match as closely as possible. You’ll see how closely when we take some higher resolution images. ;)

Twitterrific iPhone Update

Posted in Gadgets & Gizmos, Social networking

In follow-up to my post last week comparing Twitterrific to Twinkle, there’s a new update to Twitterrific that fixes some of my annoyances with the app. Here’s a list of fixes & new features:

To highlight, important changes include:

  • Contents of text field saved at quit
  • Can now take a photo or use an existing photo
  • Photos are saved to the camera roll
  • More tweets received during refresh (100 instead of 20)
  • Added an “everyone” setting from the public timeline
  • New location feature (like Twinkle) – with bonus options to add maps to your tweet
  • hashtag tweets are now linked to
  • Scroll positions are preserved

I’ll be downloading this tonight to play with it. But it sounds like a major upgrade. If the app crashes less & saves tweets that fail to upload, it may turn into my primary Twitter app on the iPhone.

Moja Coffee in North Vancouver

Posted in Around Vancouver, Coffee

We’ve spent the last few weeks enjoying our coffee from Moja Coffee in North Vancouver.

We’ve pretty much been living off their coffee since we discovered their cafe – highly recommend it if you are ever in North Van (though sadly they’re not open on weekends).

I just posted a review on Vancouver Coffee – check it out here.

Renovations Day 6

Posted in Arieanna & Ianiv, Home Decor

Today is Day 7 of the renovations, but here are some pictures from the progress made up until last night:

These are just photos from my iPhone, so I’ll upload better quality shots when everything’s all done.

Today they are going to finish the majority of the flooring, leaving only the stairs and finishing work. Progress! Still, we’re looking at a few more days of mess and chaos.
