The Geeky

Not so A-Maz(e)-ing

One of the more questionable “pleasures” of again having access to more TV channels is that I slowly get to catch up on movies on my backlog. Sometimes that’s a good thing, but more often than not I come to the realization that I really didn’t miss out on much. I don’t need to write a […]

Inter arma, enim silent leges

“Under war, the law falls silent.” That’s one of the more intricate politically themed episodes on Star Trek – Deep Space Nine (and incidentally happens to play in huge parts on the Voyager; talk about cross-references in different series). A good part of it has Adm. William Ross in it in a somewhat shady mode […]

Graceful Gravatar Gravitas

Following hot on the heels of yesterday’s remarks about After Effects getting an emergency patch update for the umpteenth time, here’s another one. Lately WordPress has been annoying me more and more. On several occasions I’ve reported glitches or non-working stuff like domain mapping.

It’s Plexus – with Plexus this time!

When I was writing this post about Plexus‘ Photoshop knock-off I already knew about version 3 of the original and now, after a rather short Beta phase that I was involved in, if only peripherally at times, it is here for your pleasure. So what’s new? Now everybody has their own new favorite feature, but […]

Fresh (Body)Paint

I admit, I really don’t like any form of digital painting. It’s always like you have to futz around with ten different brushes and a million brush strokes forever to achieve something that takes a minute with a piece of paper and a pencil. That also extends to texturing 3D stuff. Luckily, I did CAD […]
