Re: blue meanies :(

Silly duck As usual, I point to my sig disclaimer... Am I correct that if the application does not specify a color, that's when you get the default blue-meanies look ? So if there is no call to set a color, then there is nothing to find ? Pretty much, the blue backgrounds come from the app using re...

Out of curiosity, do you have any figures on what level of bandwidth the forum takes?

Re: Remote Toolchest

I'm trying to get my Origin Toochest on my Octane. I have a simple serial connection between the two.

Re: Anonymous FTP Problems

It makes me wonder if this is some sort of pirate data scheme, upload blocks of your files to random anonymous ftp sites, voila, secure, distributed storage :-)

Re: Prism-inspired wallpapers

but just the draft quality would take a whole day for my dual R12k:s to render... :-/ This flat one is much quicker. May I have a .mb(.ma) file to try to render this in production quality on dual 600? Alright, don't say I didn't warn you. I didn't keep the original file before moving on to the curr...

Re: Picked up a couple PDAs...

Sony had some really cool variants, I remember a friend of mine picked one up in japan at some point. I can't remember many details about it, but I think it had a swiveling screen and built-in phone. ISTR the official Palm SDK came with CodeWarrior bundled. Teal software made a lot of nice tools, th...

Re: Prism-inspired wallpapers

duck what software do you use to make those? If I may be so bold as to inquire... :P My Octane happens to have a Maya 6.5 installation, so I occasionally play with it to make things like these. I originally made this one with depth of field and a sort of cylindrical shape, but just the draft qualit...

Sure! Not an apple logo then? Feel free to suggest a tint colour as well :-)

Prism-inspired wallpapers

I finally got around to making a new matched pair of wallpapers inspired by the Prism hexagonal interference pattern, and now you can have them too!

Re: Picked up a couple PDAs...

Back when I still used my palm PDA:s[1], they were my alarm clock (of course) calendars, music player (yes, really, the T3 has a 3.5mm jack and it sounds terrible), note taking and mobile digital communication tool (IRC, web). Not sure what I'd do with one today (probably why my T3 is in a box and n...

Re: Fear of Artificial Intelligence

Check out the rest of the channel as well. Thanks for the link. These guys are quite good at explaining topics. I never thought about the fact that humanity might end by the means of a stamp collector and his overambitious AI. :-) Quite a few of Brady Haran's channels (he's got videos on lots of su...
