Sitting in Heathrow after a training course, waiting for my flight to Aberdeen, and browsing Nekochan via a tethered connection from my phone to my laptop (never been a fan of browsing forums on a phone, and couldn't get Heathrow's wireless to work for some daft reason).

That looks like a butchered CD drive eject mechanism? :D

Playing with Metasequoia and toying around with Renderman. Very relaxing.

Creating a Saab 9000 addon car for Viper Racing, my favorite racing sim. It's almost 20 years old but there are still enthusiast web sites that provide all the tools and information necessary to make new cars and tracks. Software I've used in the process: RealViz ImageModeler 4, Photoshop 5.5, 3D Studio MAX 2.5, Maya 3.0, Zmodeler 1.07.

The Saab is about 90% finished, need to record audio of the engine and polish some of the textures.

Binge-watching BSG reboot (who in their right mind could watch the 1st one?) for the 4th time. I discovered this gem late in life.

I've got the miniseries and every episode on DVD! During one of the seasons the New York Times tv critic said "BSG is the best show on tv," note, he didn't say the best sci fi show, he said the best show. And, he was right... :mrgreen:
