Velcro, Hooks and Rubber Bands
"Yo tech! You don't have to be high to be cool you know!" In fact I'm enjoying low-tech solutions more and more nowadays. It tends to be cheap, easy and readily understandable. I like it when I can see how something works.
Stop Saying Van - It's a Caravan!
Funny you should say that. In fact the word van is a contraction of caravan. Caravan once used to refer to a large group of people carrying a lot of baggage and may have its origins in the Sanskrit word karabhah (meaning 'camel'). Why listen to me though? A Judge at the Court of Appeal has laid down some education on the matter. (To be reasonable: van for most people nowadays does generally mean a motorised vehicle. I tend to use it over caravan mainly because it has fewer syllables - caravan is quite time-consuming. When I use 'van meaning caravan I always prefix it with the apostrophe to denote the contraction.)
