Past Lies

Tuesday, April 17th, 2007

Three blog posts in a day here and several more on Vue News and Disavowed-1010! I didn’t want to finish today without giving Kim’s new book a proper plug… I’m not going to pretend to be a big reader of romantic fiction. Until I read Kim’s previous story Buying Mackenzie’s Baby I think the last […]

First Swift of the Year

Tuesday, April 17th, 2007

Saw my first swift of the year in the park this morning on my way to work. It might have been a swallow as it was going at a real rate of knots but I’m pretty sure it was a swift. The house martins will be wizzing around soon too.

The picture originally intended for last night’s post about Creating a Bifurcated Lava Flow in Vue Infinite was waiting for me when I got up this morning. Rendered in Vue 6 Infinite and resized for uploading to the web.

Dr Who – Gridlock

Sunday, April 15th, 2007

Caught up with last nights Doctor Who which was a cracking episode. A good episode but maybe not as good as the first two because "The Shakespeare Code" and "Smith and Jones" went to more trouble to establish a solution to the problem in the plot rather than The Doctor pluging wire A in to […]

So that was what it was called

Friday, April 13th, 2007

I’ve been trying for weeks to remember the name of a BBC drama from the 80s. I’d remembered the theme was Stravinsky’s The Firebird but that didn’t help track it down. Google is great for many things but when you’re looking for the wrong title it’s no help at all. Thanks to the New Scientist […]

Thursday Thirteen #5

Thursday, April 12th, 2007

  Thirteen Things from my life in the Last Seven Days by Mark Caldwell It was the last episode of Life on Mars this week. I think it made sense in the end. Sort of. And even though there isn’t going to be anymore it didn’t finish in a way that they couldn’t do any […]

Tuesday, April 10th, 2007

Have you ever wanted a plateau on your terrain that a building can stand on or to cut a flat road through a scene? Here is a new Python script for Vue 6 Infinite and Vue 6 xStream to make doing both of those easier. It appeared as a work in progress yesterday (Terrain Sculpting […]
