Hispabrick issue 16 now available

Posted by ,

The latest edition of the excellent Hispabrick Magazine has just been published and is now available for download.

I haven't read it all yet, but the articles that caught my eye whilst flicking through include an interview with Richard Lockwood, creator of myBrickset, a clever leaf weaving technique, and interviews with Megan Rothrock, author of the LEGO Adventures book, and Jamie Berard.

It just keeps going from strength to strength...

I really enjoy every issue, plenty of excellent reviews and fascinating interviews with some of the 'big names' in the world of Lego. That leaf weaving technique will be useful...

Another great issue from Hispabrick! I can't wait for the next one...

@Huw: On a side note, is it okay if I embed my Brickset wanted and owned pages in my personal blog? I heard there may be a copying issue... I would have put this in the forum, but I don't have an account there yet...

^ Sure -- I should probably come up with a way of displaying it in a iframe or something so it's always live.

How do you plan to do it?

Thanks,

Well, it seems it won't let me put the HTML code in this comment. I tried and the posting failed several times. After doing a google search, I came up with the following method:

Start and new page or post.
Go to HTML writing
erase everything
insert the code on this website (I would post it, but it doesn't seem to work in comments): http://www.bloggertipsandtricks.com/2010/04/how-embed-website-in-blog-with-iframe.html
done!

It works well on my blog and you can check it out here: http://www.brickcreator.blogspot.com/p/collection-draft.html

I assume it would work with any web platform that supports iframe.

Ok, cool. It works, but it's not ideal, is it, with the brickset header and other clutter. I'll see if I can come up with a better way for you to do it.

Yay, I'm famous :) Haven't read much of the magazine yet (just got off work) but the leaf article is excellent.

^^ It looks like the IFrame technique leads to the page being editable by everyone who views it - so anyone can change your collection!

^^^ When I visited your blog, Brickcreator, it logged me in with my Brickset Account, allowing me to use Brickset as if I was actually on the website.

I just posted this from your blog, Brickcreator! (going back to my earlier post.)

The leaf linkage article is great. Also the one about snake building.

I do think their reviews are a little tame at times but it is such a well put together magazine. Wish there were more like it!

@RikTheVeggie - that doesn't make any sense... When I am logged out of my Brickset account, I can't change anything. Maybe it's only if you are logged in. I think what possibly happened was when you would click the check to mark or unmark owned, it would apply that to your account, as @TheLens19 said it logged him into his account. I don't have two Brickset accounts, so I can't verifty this. I'll play with it more tommorow and see what I come up with.

@TheLens19 - That's part of benefit of iframe, bassicaly it allows you to visit another website without leaving the initial website. So I could do it with Shop@Home, and have people order direclty from my website. Probably not a good idea thought, I might have LEGO's Lawyers on my back for essentially copying their website code without permission. :)

^ Think you're correct - it's showing your sets but only the ones on my lists actually have the 'owned' / 'wanted' boxes ticked.
