Not good

Some bugger nicked my phone. We went out to the LUG meeting last night, and between leaving the place and getting home, my phone was nicked. We tried to ring it and it was off, so someone has pocketed it and ensured that it is turned off. I know that it is not anyone in […]

OK, here it comes

Right, prepare yourself for the bacon review of the third installment of the Matrix. We went to the cinema in wolves, sat down with popcorn and fanta in hand and prepared for the film. What I was then treated to for the next two hours or so was a complete, engorged, swollen bag of shite. […]

I have finished by Blender series now for Linux Format. It is a bit of a shame really, as it was a really fun series to write, but I am pleased that Blender has had a lot of exposure in the magazine. When the final part is published in January, the series will have run […]

I have just bought the new 2.30 manual that is to be released in late december, and I have been playing with a script called Make Human. It is so simple to create effective looking human meshes.

Headbanging

Wireless madness continues

Right, this is starting to freak me out. My wireless card decided last night to stop working. I can see the card in the PCMCIA services and insmod the driver fine, but in terms of grabbing an IP address…nada. I have no idea why this is doing it. Consequently, I am sat here with a […]
