Too Many Ideas – 5 Today

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

It doesn’t feel like five years ago today that I started my Too Many Ideas blog after being persuade it was a good idea by Kim Knox on a writers night out at the Everyman.  To celebrate I could have baked a fruit cake or a chocolate cake but instead I had a look to […]

I was a Teenage Spam Bot

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Its funny how ideas can suddenly hit from out of nowhere. Well they feel like they come like flashes of lightning but really they must simmer around in the subconcious waiting for their moment. One hit me earlier – today seems to have been a day where I’ve picked up quite a few new followers […]

Victorian House Model Extensions

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

I noticed last year that the 25mm version of my cardboard house models had picked up a steady stream of downloads. When I originally posted them back in 2007 there didn’t seem to be a lot of interest so I’d never really followed up on them. Now there is I had a dig and found […]

Accretion City

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

I’ve tried to create a picture like this for some time – a cityscape with layers of different types of building like real cities have. I started this attempt earlier today and I think its my best attempt to date. Its built up of several CityEngine created models and a few from Cornucopia 3D. The […]

The Bluecoat Liverpool

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Today was the first day this year I’ve taken my camera for a wander round Liverpool at lunch time.  I’d originally taken it in because there was some really atmospheric mist when I got up in the morning and I was hoping it would still be around later.  By lunch it had all burnt off.  […]

CityEngine Colour Combinations and String Multiplication

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Working on my CityEngine Constructivism WiP model today I wanted to simplify the way I’m colouring the models. Rather than just assigning random colours or fixed colours I’ve created some sets of colours for my buildings. I’ve got the set of colour combinations stored as a string that I’m picking one at random for each […]

The King’s Speech

Friday, January 14th, 2011

In case you’ve not already heard The King’s Speech is a costume drama based on real life events around the end of the reign of King George V, King Edward VIII time on the throne and George VI reign up to the outbreak of World War II.  It’s focus is not the abdication, death or […]

Photo Galleries

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Last night I added a page for some Vue stuff from my blog to make it easier to find. Tonight I’ve pulled some of my photographs together into galleries in my pictures section so they’re not lost in a sea of over a thousand posts.

Vue Free Objects Page

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

Google may want to organise the Web – I just want to organise my website.  So since I had a couple of freebies for Vue floating around on Too Many Ideas without a proper home and I think I may have some more on the way I’ve made a new home for Free Vue Objects […]

Comments Spammer 404s Again

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Inevitably this post about 404 errors and comment spam got spam comments that broken the pattern with multiple 404s generated for one comment from IPs around the world.  Nice to know that it stimulated someone to go to all that trouble.  Still the usual suspects still fit the pattern.  None of them got past the […]
