    DAWWWWWW. They sure do. Horses are nice and comforting creatures, if you happen to have mindset like mine. They're... I don't know, solid. They have presence.

    Cute horses.

    on the topic of horses: I still haven't installed Daz Horse 2 yet. I'm busy trying to finish some other projects on my computer first.

    I wish it were Friday - going to be a short day, quiet here at the office, lots of time to study and read.

    Can't TentaSquirrel at work, though. >:(

    Saw a nice refurb lappy on NewEgg, not a rendering machine but would work out for a new writing machine, then I could give away my old Dell system. Maybe next year! :-S

    Lunch soon.. clam chowder. Nice and mild.

    Yummm, clam chowder sounds good. My favorite is at Mystic Seaport, CT.

    Nothing wrong with ponies, ponies are nice, especially when they have cute baby ponies.

    The game is too addictive. And I'm an addict, when it comes to right sort of games. Games with heavy micromanagement content -- such as Master of Orion /MoO2, Master of Magic etc -- are my bane. And I'm not a young, energic thing anymore, so pulling 36+ hours of wakefulness with a game can be baaaaaa-ad.

    Blech, ate some bad chicken. Sick all Tuesday night and into Wednesday. Blech.

    Better today but it's cold, windy, and obnoxious outside. It's going to be a painful trip into work today.
    ..eugh, not good.

    Have to work tomorrow, blech, need the money. No new gear until net year! :bug:.
    ..ditto.

    I DO have some content money, will spend a bit here at Daz on the easy environment thingie..

    ...looked at that, something for the new workstation as I can only do simple pics on my 32 bit system.

    There's almost nowhere near me to get fried clams! I'll have to bus + walk to Quality Seafood for fried clams! Sigh, when it's warmer.. shudder..


    ...had to bundle up on Tuesday hop ion the bike and do the shopping trip. To take the bus not only costs 5$ (round trip) but takes almost an hour because of lousy connections. I can bile there in about ten to twelve minutes.

    After dropping about 50$ on food, the fridge started making a nasty whining sound last night. Stopped for a while then started up again about 5:00AM . Just started doing it again, really annoying. Sounds like a fan is rubbing against something or has a bad bearing but the way things are designed these days, there is no way I can get to it to fix it.

    Not what I need for the holidays.

    Blech, meh. No work on TentaSquirrel. Blech. :down:
    ...aww, and the little red hared girl scurried home to create the perfect WTD (Weapon of Tentasquirrel Destruction) using her knowledge of subatomic physics and skill in French Cooking.

    W T major F?

    my manpower/experis rep just sent me this document to sign. I don't think so

    EXHIBIT A
    CONTRACTOR PERSONAL DATA CONSENT FORM (AC-9166)

    ...yuk. Non Disclosure agreements are one thing but I can see this being so easily abused.

    I would think such an agreement would violate basic constitutional tenets. Are they requiring this as a condition of continued employment?

    another complaint.. DS needs Particle effects.. there is only so much you can do with props and shaders (you can do alot, but particles would be better) ..

    Yes, yes they would. I want them too. I think a Plugin is in the works but not Close yet.

    There was a pretty cool Particle FX for old DS3.x, I think it never made it to 4.x.. not sure.

    Probably easier to post it in, and faster, if you don't need interaction with other 3D objects.

    I'm going through shader mixer and shader builder tutorials, might be able to get by without a particle generator for alot of things.Did somebody say Postwork?
    ...nice, I'd add some lights in the main 3D scene to illuminate the area around the lightning bolt.

    Did this a long time ago. All the "sparklies" were postwork. Used several different coloured spotlights for the surrounding area and a couple point lights close to her hand in the rendered scene.

    ...site/store complaint. Was purchasing the new Teens bundle along with some other teen content and the daily snowball item during Snowball sale, applied a coupon and pretty much lost my discount.

    Even though I backed out of the original order when I start anew, I find I have to pay over 70$ instead of 32$

    Can't find anywhere to remove the coupon code and reset my account.

    I really hate this new site.

    I have to have an brain MRI tomorrow morning. Don't think is anything to worry about but woweee, wasn't expecting it. That is my complaint.

    Hoping your experience is like mine was. After the MRI of my skull they said they didn't find anything.
    Be well.

    Routine I think, not expecting any bad stuff at all :)

    Tomorrow morning?! ... on the 21st, you're going to be hooked up to a very expensive piece of hardware, searching for mental activity? o.0...

    You know the Everything Is Going To Be Different, when you emerge, don't you? ;-)

    (good luck with that! >_<)</span>

    Hehe absolutely the right place to be then. I need some apocalyptic music to take with me, and of course if everyone in the world turns into Zombies there will be a medlab nearby with a clone of Mila Jovovich around somewhere to fight them off :) Seriously, is just a precaution, don't expect anything has gone badly wrong :)


    crikey! hopez for a clean bill o' health!

    *hugs* Fine TY. Is only a mild persistent headache, probably a side effect from Norspan meds :)

    Daww such a cute raptor X3
    He seems a bit annoyed though...


    Just kept meaning to say I see your Avy as a cardinal. I know it isn't, but still...

    Heh he does seem like a Cardinal now that you mention it :D

    D|S doesn't have a particles plugin? I thought it did already. Carrara's always had particles, but they've been... Broken, if you will, for so long. I don't think some of the particle stuff is fixed even in v8. That video Mark Bremmer did with a trail of smoke and fire was pretty cool though.

    Mm... Reminds me I haven't done anything other than bubbles in a vat of liquid with Cinema's particles yet. That needs to be addressed =P


    Ooh also my latest test with M4D. This time I went and used iRay to render it. Two minute render time with Depth of Field and a large HDRI =P

    *edited to add* that I still need to finish rigging that beast. :P

    Nice looking skin :)
