New Glasses Yeh!

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

Got my glasses back with the new lenses today – apparently they were waiting for me to contact them – strange that they went to a lot of trouble checking my address, phone number, work phone number, mobile phone number and address when I ordered them so they could let me know as soon as […]

Vue Texture Resizer …

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

Spent some time wrapping the script I started on last night into wxPython but mostly I’ve just been sciving off tonight.

Vue Texture Resizer

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

One perenial problem reported by Vue users is running short of memory. Part of the problem is that it is so easy to import objects that are loaded down with image based textures, bump maps, reflection maps etc. At the moment its a bit of a pain to hunt down all the textures, make copies […]

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

Well almost a year since I last posted about Joomla and I find myself gearing up to a development based on it.

I use the Liverpool to Norwich rail service several times a year to get to a variety of destinations. Central Trains were never perfect but East Midlands Trains seem to take pride in getting it wrong. Where Central Trains would provide vouchers as compensation when late with an explanation of the cause I’ve yet to […]

Up the Parthenon

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

I’ve been saving this for a night when I couldn’t face NANOBLOWHATONEARTHAMISTILLDOINGTHISFORMO and with 5 days to go… Possibly the worlds oldest joke book found at the BBC. By which I mean I read the report on the BBC web site not that their still using it to write jokes for sitcoms. Read more about […]

So far its a Cunning Plan

Monday, November 24th, 2008

I typed up the idea I mentioned on Friday today and so far it seems to hold water. I need to do some work around the edges to flesh out the detail still.

Intentionally Blank

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

I was thinking of saying something about BBC2’s Einstein and Eddington but I think I’ll just say I enjoyed it. One odd thing I noticed today (other than how busy the shops are and how long the wait to be served is when we are supposedly not spending on the high street) was early on […]

Hold on a Minute Lads, I've got an Idea!

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

I wrote an article on heist movies, You’re Only Supposed to Blow the Bloody Doors Off!!! , for Valkyrie issue 25 several years ago. I’ve been working on game ideas related to that and to a detective based game for quite a while either as a role playing game or as a wargame. I’ve been […]

Vue Mass Convert 0.6

Friday, November 21st, 2008

I’ve just uploaded Mass Convert 0.6 for both Vue 6 Infinite and Vue 7 Infinite to my web site. The major improvement to this version is that when producing Vue’s VOB files it now produces a preview render of the object or if an appropriately named file is present on your computer with the objects […]
