First set of additional add ons. Initially just written onto the signs before we design an icon and register them in the data base. Some 'add ons' are just one of and we use a whiteboard marker, others stay permanently.


its actually quite easy

These two guys assured me that they weren't skiving and they had time off after having done exams, They go to Brockhill School in Hythe and were strolling around with their mates.

Finally some dedicated plugs to charge the Milk Float properly and allow all electronics to function like they should. The battery charge had steadily been decreasing and caused the float to get stranded in the harbour. Apologies to all those who were looking for it and could not find it.
Now all is well thanks also to Craig and Lee who came and sorted it all out.

Two brave men in the ghastly harbour shed but then into the bowel's of the ghastly shed's electicity room, with lots of moths and huge spiders, these men have now put the proper extension cable on the float and it works, it charged properly....WHAT JOY!
Craig was also the guy who put the lights behind the large Folkestone sign in the harbour, so when you see them lit up you know who did that too.

We were setting up when Nick and his family came along, so we sent them off to see the mobile science fiction library, or did we suggest that they went there? However when they came back we were still not set up, we took a picture of Nick from Staffordshire, as he couldn't do a story and to mollify his huge disappointment I have put his picture on the blog.

At last I have someone who knows about Macs and was around when I needed him. Gavin has now made the pointer on the Mac huge so that we can see it when it is dancing around the screen, in the past it was like looking for a needle in a haystack, now it is like looking for a 10ft pole in a haystack, Easy peasy.

Today was my last day in Folkestone. Kathrin and I came down from London and did both our mapping. Watch out for us on the map!

And now I have to say bye-bye to Folkestone. I really enjoyed the time in this beautiful coastal town and hope to come back sometime!

In front of Debenhams


Finally ..... the FOLKESTONOMY mobile arrived "in front of Debenhams", a spot that was described to us earlier as "where things happen in Folkestone". So there is one Folka' s Stone.
