The Inspirational

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 […]

Mister Gaaaariiiibaaaaldiiii!

So what’s new? Now everybody has their own new favorite feature, but […]

Procedural Modo(e)ling

Two weeks of no activity… Guess that shows how much I’ve withdrawn from my former life and all that geek nonsense I used to obsess about. *lol* Anyway, at least a bit of  worthwile news comes our way with the release of Modo 10.1 – the one with the procedural modeling stuff. As I wrote […]
