Too Many Ideas - Archive for 2008

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 […]

Vue Mass Convert 0.6 on Its Way

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

I’ve been putting a few finishing touches to a new, improved version of the GUI version of my Mass Convert script for Vue tonight. Hopefully I’ll have the time to package it all up and post it tomorrow.

Mark II Eyeball

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

Spotted this on the BBC web site – the I-Ball – a camera for use in looking in dangerous places. How long till they adapt the idea for sport? It will make for interesting footage from football and cricket plus no more watching a blue sky where there might be a ball during golf. It […]

Oh Cheer Up Duck!

Monday, November 17th, 2008

Well I started on NaNoBloWhateverIGotLostSomeWhereInTheMiddleOfTheAcroCumuloNymbusMo by accident. Some days I can’t find anything to write and others I’ve more than I need. Anyway the Princess Trust show from the other night has started turning up on YouTube and here are three of the bits I liked most. [All now removed]

EcoSystem to CSV / CSV to EcoSystem Tested in Vue 7

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

I’ve checked EcoSystem to CSV / CSV to EcoSystem in Vue 7 Infinite and its working. As with the other scripts once I’ve tested them all I’ll update the impworks web pages.

Le Doulos

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

I saw a write up of Jean-Pierre Melville’s film Le Doulos [1963] in one of those greatest films of all time lists burried between the always present classics and the good recent films that get voted onto lists for a few years and then fade. It caught my attention because its not one of the […]

I Just Want My Glasses Back Now

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

I put my glasses in for new lenses last week and so I’m using an old pair that are so close to the same prescription that I can see almost as well as normal. What I’d forgotten is how heavy these are compared to my current glasses and how being so much bigger they catch […]
