Adobe and the Linux Curse

An interesting discussion popped up on regarding the creation of a perfect Linux distribution for artists, over the course of which it was suggested that Adobe do it. While the idea is sound and on an idealistic level makes a lot of sense, it still falls through. First, of course: Who as an artist actually […]

Miracles happen?

Maxon, what took you so long? When it comes to being closed up, they were closed up as someone who has been tied, gagged and plugged during a BDSM play session (yes, I know how that stuff works; feel free to ask). Gathering from this thread over at CGTalk it seems they’re finally coming around. Did […]

Knock, knock…

Today is a weird day. For days I’d been wondering about some repetitive knocking at the strangest times and today I found out what it actually was. I live on the 5th floor of a concrete building from 35 years ago and back then they didn’t think of acoustic damping and the walls sometimes feel like […]

CC 2015 Point (Zero Zero) Two?

The universe is going to make another burp (or rather a dissatisfied loud belch) with the upcoming second year half versions of Adobe‘s video tools.

Alive and A-Dead?

I know that when he’s so terribly quiet, he’s usually terribly busy, but for a while there even I was getting worried about Mr. Kramer. After all it’s been almost three months. It’s good to see they left him out of his dungeon working on Star Wars – The Force Awakens. To be honest, though, […]

(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 […]
