'Addicted' to Addiction

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

As I get older one thing that annoys me more and more is the quantity of what passes for journalism. The rise of editorial over actual reporting. The need to have a journalist at the scene of the event to give a live report to camera and have a nice chat with the studio where […]

New Google Analytics Features

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Some of the new Google Analytics features look interesting. I’m going to reserve judgment on the animated graph as I’m not convinced its really comprehensible for many sites. Having looked at it on Tuesday night I’d rather not have discovered even more new features had appeared overnight while in a meeting showing it to a […]

Just Messin' Around with Vue 7

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

I’ve just spent the evening messing around with Vue 7. Nothing really to show from tonight but I made the yet to be titled picture above last night. I’ve resized it for the web from a larger, print quality render and cropped it a little too. The ship is from Cornucopia 3D and the Water […]

Spooks won't be Winning…

Monday, November 10th, 2008

…Great British Menu. Microwaving a land mine might be an original way to diffuse it (and inverts the microwave as bomb from Under Siege) – unfortunately it was a dastardly French landmine so it would fail the test of being regional. Not sure if it would count as seasonal either. The Bondish technobable element (like […]

Sunday, November 9th, 2008

I’ve checked my Vue python script Cloud Builder in Vue 7 Infinite. No problems detected so just a small update to the Readme file to note the test.

Centre Finder 0.2

Sunday, November 9th, 2008

I’ve just updated and tested my Vue python script Centre Finder for Vue 7 Infinite. No significant changes just a little tweak so the cube it creates is name "Centre". The zip file on the Centre Finder page has been updated and I’ll update the web page itself later.

I didn’t mean to do NaBloPoMo this year but since I seem to be by accident I ought to come up with a post for today… Except I can’t think of one so this NoNaBloPoMo post will have to do otherwise I’ll fail today.

Burn after Reading

Saturday, November 8th, 2008

Today’s cinema outing was to see Burn after Reading a film more in the style of a 1970s or 1960s slow burning thriller than the big action thrillers usually made today. There were no car chases or fight scenes, no high tech gadgets or flash cars and not one of the characters was remotely competent […]

Industrial Britain Photographs

Friday, November 7th, 2008

Came across the Industrial Britain site via a report on the BBC – the images are stunning.

My first Vue 7 Render

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

A quick (around 12 minute) render using Vue 7 Infinite. One of the new infinite procedural terrains with the desert preset and a slightly tweaked god ray atmosphere (I made the sky a bit more red and a little less blue). User defined render settings.
