  1. My cousin's C64 made me want to smash my fingers with a hammer. I loved this thing: We put the 32K RAM upgrade in it. Absolute magic. And then I loved this thing: I spent entire summers coding Conway's "Game of Life" sims. (Mostly because the TRS-80 never saved correctly to the cassette tape and I'd have to retype everything every time I'd turn the power off.)
  2. I've been with Laughingsquid.net for years and years and years. Great service, great customer support, great uptime.
  3. Found a link to this nifty background renderer on Stu Maschwitz's blog about a bit ago: Background Renderer I've been using it for about a week now. Definitely handy. Thank you, Lloyd Alvarez.
  4. besides, shake is ony 500 bucks now. (assuming, of course, that you have a mac...)
  5. dude... i think i worked with the guy in that picture. you can tell he works for an ad agency because he's crying and thinks the world is ending.
  6. maybe we're all just too busy making work to spend time here talking about making work. me, personally... i get rock hard at the sign of my own navals. i feel like a broken record when i talk about her, but look at lotte reiniger's films. then contemplate how she made them. then worship the electronic gods who allow you to both make your deadlines _and_ have a weekend.
  7. my favorite restaurant in the world is yakitori taisho on st. marks. it's an awesome gastronomical and cultural delight. make sure you try the chicken skin.
  8. Hmm... guess I should have done a search first. Lots of good stuff. My apologies.
  9. The muckety-mucks at my facility decided that we need to speed up our AFx rendering. I suggested a fibre-channel based SAN, but the $100K price tag didn't go over well. The "start the render at 5:30 and it'll be finished tomorrow morning" isn't flying either. So... Who's using what to speed up your AFx renders? I'm looking for some sort of middle ground between my two extremes. Is anyone actually happy with using AFx's built-in distributed rendering? (And if so, what's your secret?)
  10. If will if you cut off it's arms, legs and head and dispose of them separately.
  11. Half hour bike commute each way. Keeps the activity level up. Oh, and it's about a 5-minute hike to the bathroom from my workstation.
  12. no kidding. have y'all seen CNN International? sweet.
  13. That is brilliant! I have this fantasy... (No, it's not what you think.) One of these days I'm going to do a piece using only art cards, a copy camera and an optical printer. Some day.
  14. are you kidding me?! you can pull my stylus out of my cold, dead hand. using a computer without a tablet is slow and gives me RSI problems.
  15. Lotte Reiniger is the creator of "the Adventures of Prince Achmed", thought to be the first animated feature length film. Put it on your NetFlix list and remember as you watch it, that she did each frame once after another from the start of the scene to the end, with no real-time preview, no video tap, no nothing. It's a masterwork.
  16. d00d! what plug did u use for that wood textchur? it's sw33t!! iz it from toolfarm?
  17. look at your box sides very carefully to make sure none of them are intersecting. also, maybe your null in comp3 sounds redundant. you should be able to move the box in comp2 directly. granted, i can't see what you're trying to do from here, so these are just wild-assed guesses. good luck. -t
  18. oh. i f#@&ed up and clicked "camel" instead of "rollerblades". sorry.
  19. It helps a LOT to flip through the manual for DVDSP and also to read up a bit on the DVD spec in general. Once you understand how DVDs function, it's way easier to make one using DVDSP.
