    • City seeks permit for boy's tree house..

      12 years ago

      FinePoint

      The future of a tree house built for two small boys is up in the air because of a complaining neighbour.

      Parents Andrew Dewberry and Jayne Seagrave say they have to either come up with about $3,500 for permits and plans to comply with a Vancouver bylaw or tear down the tree house.

      Dewberry, an architect, has already spent $2,500 on the boat-shaped cedar-shake-covered tree house, which sits five metres up a big cedar tree at the front of the family home in the 6100-block MacDonald Street in Kerrisdale. He insists the city told them in August they could build the tree fort because there was nothing on the books to prevent it.

      But the city's David McLellan said there is no record of anyone from city hall talking to the couple. He said the couple have been advised they can try to get a development permit for the tree house by supplying the needed paperwork, including a survey, drawings and photos.

      "We acted upon a complaint," said McLellan. "Typically, no structures are allowed in the front yard."

      The city's Paul Herity said the complaint from a neighbour may have more to do with an extensive renovation the couple are doing. "There's some friction between the neighbours and we're caught in between," he said. "We're not out looking for tree forts."

      The neighbour who complained refused to comment.

      Dewberry and Seagrave, who are reluctant to tear down the tree house and to spend more to get a permit, said they are also fighting for other homeowners who want to have a fun place for their kids.

      The couple's kids, Sam and Jack, are concerned their ship-shape fort may be about to be scuttled. "I have a lot of fun up there," said Sam, 6. "I'd be mad if they have to take it down."

      Added Jack, 7: "I love to read up there. It's really awesome. It would be very, very sad if they had to tear it down."

      Some residents along the street of million-dollar homes think the tree house is not a problem.

      "It doesn't bother me," said neighbour Phil Ashmore. The controversy "has certainly given the street something to talk about. I suggested they turn it into a cocktail lounge."

      I was looking through a bunch of news websites and I stubled onto this.... This is just CRAZY!!! A 6 and 7 yr old boy's tree house need a permit to build... That is just nuts.... What dose everyone else think?

    • Is Windows a Virus?

      12 years ago

      FinePoint

      No, Windows is not a virus. Here's what viruses (viri?) do:
      1.They replicate quickly -- okay, Windows does that.
      2.Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing down the system as they do so -- okay, Windows does that.
      3.Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard disk -- okay, Windows does that, too.
      4.Viruses are usually carried, unknown to the user, along with valuable programs and systems. Sigh... Windows does that, too.
      5.Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will buy new hardware. Yup, that's with Windows, too.

      Until now it seems Windows is a virus but there are fundamental differences: Viruses are well supported by their authors, are running on most systems, their program code is fast, compact and efficient and they tend to become more sophisticated as they mature.

      So, Windows is not a virus.


      Hehe this is one of my favs.

      You have linux. What does you desktop look like? What version do you have?

      I have PClinuxOS on my laptop.

      I like it cause it is a live cd. And also it looks kinda like the windows GUI. It is the KDE layout though.
