If you've looked at D2: The Mighty "ChocolateFrogs" Duck's blog, he had this really awesome entry
about a mosaic that was made
during a LEGO con that happened in Britain right at the same time that BrickCon was occurring. I think this would be a phenomenal thing if we could pull this together at BrickFair 2010. I think the current plan would be to maybe get people who have confirmed that they're going to BrickFair 2010 to each make a pre-assigned square or two of it (as in a 32x32 LEGO plate) and then bring it to BrickFair. How we're going to organize it, currently no completely hammered-out plan (and we should probably get this ok'd with someone at BrickFair?) but if we can pull this off, it would be six types of awesome.
The thing is, is that CF and I are having a problem finding a program to use to "translate" the photo into a LEGO-piece mosaic version. We've found a few. One works great, except it doesn't tell you how many of each colour piece is required. I've found a few cross-stitch patter converters, but they way that they translate the image isn't very visually appealing. So, if anyone could give us a hand figuring that out, we'd both be extremely grateful, because I've been scouring google for something and have had very little luck.
(I just realized that there's been a miniscule speck of graphite stuck to the bottom of my mouse, and now there's this massive grey scribble on my desk. Oops.)
Oh, and does anyone know what happens when your Premier Membership runs out but you changed your name during that time as a Premier, and you're going to renew your Premier Membership? Does it revert the name change back to 90 days, but then switches back to 45 days once you renew it?(and 304 days until BrickFair!)
