Squid Quotient – Yet More Pointless Stuff

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Found at Very True Things… Your Squid Quotient = 133.25 Interpreting your results: An average Squid Quotient is around 100. A SQ of 100 means you have a normal affinity for squid. A SQ above 100 means you have an attraction or fondness for squid. Below 100 means that you should probably stay away from […]

New Vue Python Script: Cloud Builder

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

Here is a new Python script for Vue 6 Infinite and Vue 6 xStream. It places a meta cloud sphere at the same position as all of the objects selected when it’s run. See the readme file in the zip for more information. As always I’m releasing it into the wild as a Beta here […]

Cop Night #6

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

I’d not planned on doing another Cop Night post. It was just a bit of a silly gimic last week knowing I’d see Hot Fuzz one night. However #6 just happened. First there was the sound of the police helicopter. Then sirens on the main road. Then more sirens. Then the police helicopter almost overhead. […]

Curvy 3D 1.0

Saturday, February 24th, 2007

Curvy 3D is an interesting freebie on this months 3D World magazine. Modelling by sketching the shape of the object you want. Finer control by painting on the resulting object. You can also paint colour onto the object. The tool set is limited but it’s a fraction of the price of many similar tools that […]

Cop Night #5: A night with the Fuzz

Saturday, February 24th, 2007

Hot Fuzz is far too funny and clever for its own good. I hate Messrs Pegg and Wright for the ridiculously high level of humour they maintained throughout the film. I despise them for their effortless references to action films from around the world; to the plot structure beloved by Bruckheimer Simpson Bay and associates; […]

Cop Night #4

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

Not a huge amount of cop (or other stuff done) today. Spent the morning at the eye clinic and the rest of the day in a darkened room recovering. What I can’t figure out is why every time I go there I come away with a bad back. Did do a little bit of polishing […]

Cop Night #3

Thursday, February 22nd, 2007

More robbers than Cops tonight really. Just finished watching The League of Gentlemen which arrived from Amazon today. Not the situation comedy but the film from 1960 that the series took its name from in which Jack Hawkins and a hand picked crew of ex soldiers stage a bank robbery. The focus is on the […]

Cop Night #2

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

So tonight wasn’t quit as good a cop show night as expected. My VCR tried to eat the tape I’d put in for Life on Mars. Did get to see CSI which continues to be enjoyable fluff. Got one with the equipment section of Serious and Orgainsed and also made notes for descriptions of British […]

Cop Night #1

Monday, February 19th, 2007

I feel a Cop Show theme coming on this week… So Waking the Dead’s run ended with a romantic twist for Boyd. Slightly subtler than CSI’s Sarah/Grisham matching dressing gown crime scene and foreshadowed a little more in the plot too. I’ve also been working on Serious and Organised. Boring equipment list creation. I’m torn […]

Days Like This

Sunday, February 18th, 2007

One of those days when life leaves me wondering if I should cry with joy or anger. North West Water achieved another little bit of incompetence after there earlier efforts by disconnecting the water supply today. I wouldn’t mind they told us they were going to turn it off. Except the leaflet said it would […]
