If you’re tired of endless plastic toys at Christmas (and may well have been guilty of buying some for your child / niece / nephew etc), why not try the charms and delights of the Foldskool Heroes
Marshall Alexander is a Dutch graphic artist whose childhood memories – probably like yours and mine – consisted of videogames, bright plastic toys and TV cartoons. He now spends his spare time illustrating his childhood memories and designing paper toys. His speciality is these utterly wonderful one-piece paper toys that consist of a single flat piece of paper, which though intricate folding and glueing is transformed into a beautiful 3d model toy.
All the templates are available for download – I feel a sudden urge for scissors and glue coming on!
So I managed to wipe out all my 2008 posts while upgrading wordpress
I suspect this will be a lost cause but in case anyone’s wondering where all the archives went, I’m a HUGE spanner.
You know that database backup plugin? Helps to use it before you upgrade the script. (Yes, I’m an idiot and hopefully this’ll learn me)
Ho hum, no sense crying over lost, er, blog posts.
Update: Thanks to the wonders of Google cache, I’ve got all the posts back. Just a hideously boring process of reposting them all individually. But better than losing it all. Comments will be lost in the ether, but in the grand scheme of things, not that big a deal compared to losing a year’s worth of posts. And that backing up the database thing? SO won’t be making that mistake again!
