Nature Vraie 9 is now up, go check it out. So far the response has been very positive indeed.
I was watching the latest WWDC conference video at the Apple website after hearing so much fluff on Slashdot about Steve Jobs apparently losing his flair. I have to agree with the sentiments of others, that this is a developer’s conference. They’re more interested in things they can use more than the typical whiz-bang niftiness that usually comes out during an Apple keynote.
Still, there were plenty of interesting items shown, especially those having to do with Leopard. That Time Warp demo looked fairly compelling, but while the ability to go “back in time” to see the state of any folder or file that was changed and resurrect that to the present is interesting, I have to worry about performance on my G5 Mac. And one of the little asides they showed was the new updated iChat client (which I never seem to use). The ability for the software to take a snapshot of what’s behind you in a videoconference and substitute any picture or video in its place is just a stroke of genius.
It’s a neat time to own a Mac, and probably an even better time to upgrade to an Intel one.
New PC first though, for me.
So I’ve posted my impressions of Chromehounds, finally. This game is like crack, and I have to tell you I’ve barely played anything else lately. I say it in my impressions and I’ll say it here: this is a mech pilot’s wet dream come true. Should have named it Crackhounds.
Also finally passed 2000 points on my Live gamerscore. Took me a while, but then again I don’t play for points. Still, kind of neat.
There’s a rather large tournament happening in TV at the moment, and CCP have taken the interesting steps of getting EVE Radio to come and broadcast it all live via streaming video. Very cool, and it runs for about six days through July as the tournament progresses.
About a week ago I was asked by the kind folks there to work up some kind of monologue about Warp Drive Active that could be put to video, and it seems that was broadcast today during one of their segments between matches.
Check out the schedule for the tournament here, and access the live stream here.
This weekend I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Laocoon of EVE Tribune, a news site for the EVE community. The interview appears in their Issue #5.
I can never get over when this kind of thing happens. If someone had told me years ago I’d be doing an online comic and getting interviewed by websites I’d have laughed at them. This reminds me of the time when Urban Mongral of EVE Radio interviewed me for his radio show Desert Asteroid Disks. That was definitely interesting as well, as I got to choose a bunch of songs to subject listeners to across the entire hour of the broadcast. If i can find the MP3 of that I’ll put it online.
Check out the EVE Tribune interview here.
Ok, the digital art section is coming together, and I’ve got most of my galleries up for people to check out. Take a look, and enjoy the fancy shmancy image viewer. I’ve still got a ton of additional content coming, but I’m bouncing between this and working on a project for my alliance in EVE.
Well I was going to redesign my site, but lately I’m so damn busy I figured I might as well bite the bullet and install WordPress. Pretty funky. Now, all I have to do is get all my old content moved over.
I’ve turned on comments now, but apparently there’s some weird php security thing that makes the login link not work when you try to add comments and aren’t logged in. If you get that, just hit your back button and click the Login button under the Meta header on the right, then you should be able to register or login.
