Modern Mime

Saturday, September 8th, 2007

I was going to post a funny video I saw on YouTube but for the life of me I can’t find it now. Fortunately Kim has a funny one from The Secret Policeman’s Ball and I’m going to steal it to fill a gap in my blog today. I thought I’d blogged about the show […]

Soda Bread Pizza

Friday, September 7th, 2007

Tonight I take my inpiration from darkdwarf’s post Tuna Fish Pitta Bread Pizzas. I thought I’d share two versions of a quick Soda Bread pizza recipe.

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

  A few weeks ago my list was of herbs and spices I restocked from Matta’s International foods in Liverpool. Last weekend I went back and got some more spices. So here are thirteen more spices in Mark Caldwell’s cupboard. I’ve run out of jars now so I’ll have to stop but my cupboard smells […]

Vue Stereo Image Camera Creation Script

Monday, September 3rd, 2007

I was asked by Jim Coe if I knew of a script for creating a pair of cameras for rendering stereo images in Vue. I didn’t but writing one wasn’t particularly difficult. It isn’t a complete solution as it won’t generate an animated camera and it won’t work with cameras that aren’t flat and level. […]

The Bourne Ultimatum

Saturday, September 1st, 2007

While I like a Bond film or a Die Hard 4.0 I prefer my spy films to be a little more believable, a bit more visceral more like Ronin or Iprcress Files. The first two Bourne films fell squarely in that camp. I saw The Bourne Ultimatum and it doesn’t wander from the path. Like […]
