The WTF?

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 […]

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. Yesterday it occurred to me that the Gravatar widget finally had whacked […]

Fixer Upper

*sssshhhh*, don’t tell anyone, but there are times when I do watch those more or less awful shows on some of the Discovery Network‘s channels out of sheer boredom. Fixer Upper is one of them, where some interior designers and architects try to turn some of those terribly distasteful American country homes into something that might […]

1-2-3 (Re)Activate!

In a stroke of madness I have just reactivated my Facebook account! *yee-haw* My first excursion there a few years ago turned into a nightmare, but, while I’m already as confused as I was last time, I’m willing to give this another whirl. Hopefully my half-Asperger-ish brain will not lock up again over the flood […]

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 […]

It’s still 2015…

Well, at least according to Adobe. Thus this year’s first new Creative Cloud versions are labeled as 2015.something, which is actually pretty terrible. It’s like the company being in full Corel mode and having zero confidence in their products because they know that a) they are still full of bugs and unresolved issues (trust me, […]
