The Geeky

(Don’t?) Sweat it!

In the Möbius loop that is my precarious health, it seems I’m going through the same cycle over and over again, just in different intervals. The frequencies of my medical schedule – weekly, monthly, quarterly, annually – are like an interfering wave pattern that would create screechy noise in an analog synthesizer. One of those noises […]

The Error Code Database needs you!

My, what a week! The powers that be, meaning our MDK (Medizinischer Dienst der Kassen = Medical Evaluation Board), on behalf of my health insurance have force-declared me fit for work, so I have to re-enter the circuit of going on a hunt for a job after almost one year downtime. Suffice it to say […]

Nothing compares 2 U

Wonderful song, isn’t it? I still have those pictures of Sinead O’Connor in my head… In the wake of the recent release of Cinema 4D R17 inevitably those questions popped up on my dashboard about an updated/ revised comparison of modo vs. Cinema. The bad news is, that I’m not going to do it. There’s a […]

The most important Feature modo doesn’t have?!

The […]

Grim Tales in Space

At long last I managed to get myself Interstellar. I had waited until the pricing got a little more reasonable because I wasn’t in a rush and it’s one of the rare occasions where I consciously wanted a Blu-Ray for the visuals. Imagine my shock when I popped in the disc and had to look […]

R17 not so cute

Alas, my predictions were too optimistic and thus wrong, but well, perhaps I need to change that flickering light bulb in my crystal ball. The cat’s out of the bag and the new features for Cinema 4D R17 have been announced and it’s pretty lackluster, if I may say so. A lot of stuff like […]

The Power of 10

With regards to operating systems, 10 doesn’t seem to be a good version number. After Apple already have been making everyone’s life difficult with OS X 10.10 for the last nine months or so, it seems Microsoft are following suit. Yepp, as if the inherent issues with the CC 2015 weren’t enough, upgrading to Windows 10 […]
