Thursday Thirteen #9

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

Thirteen Things about Mark Caldwell as though I was a character in a (badly written) detective story… He was tall, not too tall. Tall enough to have to duck through low doors. Tall enough to be asked to reach things down from high shelves. His gut had the the soft padding of years of pleasant […]

Creating the Inventor's Work Bench

Friday, April 27th, 2007

The picture I used for my Wordless Wednesday this week was made for the latest issue of Ragnarok. Various 3d models were assembled in Vue 6 Infinite but this one could have been made in any version of Vue. I’ll start with the easy bits. The bench itself is a cube with the old wood […]

Ragnarok 52

Friday, April 20th, 2007

Issue 52 of Ragnarok the SFSFW‘s journal of fantasy and science fiction wargaming landed care of the Post Office today. My first Rag cover. It wasn’t a picture I’d done expecting it to be used on the cover but John liked it and wouldn’t let me fiddle with it. I’ve got a couple more illustrations […]

Thursday Thirteen #1

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

Thirteen Things random things about Mark Caldwell 1… I remember far too many useless facts for my own good but can’t remember a thing if I’m on a quiz team. 2… Being in high up places doesn’t bother me. My fear is unsteady high places I may fall off. 3… I’ve just joined the moderating […]

Squid Quotient – Yet More Pointless Stuff

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Found at Very True Things… Your Squid Quotient = 133.25 Interpreting your results: An average Squid Quotient is around 100. A SQ of 100 means you have a normal affinity for squid. A SQ above 100 means you have an attraction or fondness for squid. Below 100 means that you should probably stay away from […]

My First Ajax Page

Friday, February 9th, 2007

I’ve been looking at the open source xajax project for php for a couple of days. It’s a pretty straight forward way to add ajax to a PHP site without needing to know a lot of javascript. I’ve used it to enhance the front page of the meme machine tonight. Not the most complex of […]

impworks Link Section Coming Soon

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

I spent several annoying hours today trying to find free link directory scripts for my impworks site that worked with smarty templates. After a couple of wasted hours of downloading and trying out scripts I decided it would be quicker to code something up myself. Now I’ve got the basic MySQL, PHP and smarty templates […]

Making Clothes for Michael

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

Over the weekend and tonight I’ve been teaching myself how to make poser clothing. Mostly I’ve been using Virtual Fashion 1.5 Pro and Poser dynamic cloth. The down side of which is the time to make the simulations and the simulation failures. When it fails the simulations vary from the annoying to the farcical. The […]
