There are now two new utility printers in the Slade building, accessed via the print@UCL network. One is on the ground floor by Studio 6 (to the left of the main staircase), the other on the 2nd floor by the lift. Print in B&W and colour, A4 and A3. Send documents to the print@UCL print queue with your username and ID, retrieve prints from any printer with your UCL ID card. All UCL cluster PCs have the print@UCL queue available, as do all stations in the Slade EMS. You can also add print@UCL to your own computer by following the instructions here.
For normal printing in A4/A3, black/white and colour, UCL have Cluster Rooms in many locations. Students are allocated a “free” printing quota each term. The cluster room in the basement of the Cruciform (opposite the main UCL entrance) is quite convenient to access from the Slade and has all printing options.

iPhone/Android: Need a quick and dirty floor plan for your house? Free app MagicPlan can put one together using just your smartphone’s camera. This is where the MagicPlan app comes in. First, it uses your phone’s camera to measure the dimensions of each room, which means you can have your whole house measured in a matter of minutes, instead of spending a couple of hours wrangling a tape measure. The measurements are accurate enough for planning purposes (although I still recommend breaking out an actual tape measure when you’re going to build something.)

The process is quite simple: use your inkjet printer to print the image on a non-porous surface, like the leftover glossy part of a used sheet of labels. From there, you can transfer the image to the wood.P Note that the wood needs to be bare to absorb the ink. After it dries, you can gloss over it to preserve the image and make the colors pop a little more. Check out the video to see it in action.P How to transfer an inkjet photo to wood | Steve Ramsey via Hack a DayP

From http://thenextweb.com/lifehacks/2013/09/12/10-things-you-should-never-say-during-presentations-2/ At our TNW Conferences we see a lot of presentations and I have given a fair share of presentations myself. I often see people making the same mistakes and cringe when I hear the same excuses or basic errors when people get on stage. The easiest way to lose an audience is to make a mistake in the first minute, and that is exactly where most mistakes are made. Here is my list of 10 things you shouldn’t say during presentations: 1: I’m very jet-lagged/tired/hungover Not sure where this comes from but one in five presentations at any Read more

One of the most common misunderstandings artists have about websites is the idea that an online virtual gallery or portfolio can function as a comprehensive marketing strategy. I often read articles encouraging artists to simply develop an online portfolio to drive audiences (and potential buyers) toward their works. Unfortunately, the internet is so saturated with images, audio, texts and videos that creative manifestations without context can easily become engulfed in the abyss of the World Wide Web. Creating your successful artist website is not about simply displaying art. It’s about engaging your site visitors through a compelling story about you Read more

Quotes & Accents (& Dashes) We all need to use them but hardly any of us know how to type them. Here is a brief guide of how to type smart quotes and accented characters (and dashes) on a Mac. If you have the latest OS you probably discovered that you can also find accented characters by holding down a letter to reveal its spicier cousins (I discovered this myself many times when attempting to type “heeeeeyyyyy” in an iChat window.). If you’re on a Windows computer or some nerdy space machine, I’d recommend googling “keyboard commands for accented characters”. Read more
