Some Random Stuff For a Saturday and Sunday

Three Things to Love

MacBook Pro, Nescafe Nes and Bon Jour

Ok so it’s a Saturday, and I am bored to tears and have about zero motivation to do anything worthwile.  However, all is not lost today, I have 2 extremely good coffies to choose from, Nescafe Nes and Bon Jour, both sent recently from the wonderful shops in Paris, France, to my door here in New England.  Makes what I have been going thru this past week just a little more bearable.

However, the problems are still there and in the end, my anger is sure to get the best of me, and if I never see a particular person again, it will be too soon, in fact, the way I felt yesterday after getting off the phone with a Federal Authority, well lets just say some pretty nasty thoughts were running through my mind.  But you know, I think that i would have been amiss if I didn’t have those thoughts, this is a pretty bad situation.

Of course making it even funnier is the fact that someone I am acquainted with, not that I like, hell I’m come right out and say it, I think she’s a total flake that needs serious psych help, keep writing things on her blog about all sorts of mystical crap one minute, like she’s the most loved blogger (she even refers to her readers, all one of them, as Spudguns) and then the next she’s knee deep in self pity over some non existent disease (the disease is real, I doubt she has it though) and then into some big tirade about how she worked in Television (I guess anyone who brings coffee to the talent is now a media person) and now she’s on to this thing “breakthrough, the Movie” yeah, you guessed it, some sort of self help BS that is supposed to be then end all be all to making yourself what you want of yourself. (Where have I heard that before hmmm) All I’m going to say about her, is this.  My Macbook is yummier looking than yours and I know how to use mine.

ON to the self help thing that I was going to segue into anyhow.

Ahh back to the Macbook and ideas to come.

Anyways, so I am now officially impressed with the iPad. So far typing on it is as easy as using my MacBook or iMac. There will be a complete side by side on the ereader portion to the Amazon Kindle later today.

The Joys of a New Computer

Posted in 3D, CGI, Computing on March 28, 2010 by vk08

I have not updated this blog as often as I would like to, mainly because my computer’s keyboard was clunky and really a pain in the rear to type upon.

It's a Mac, not a PC

That however has now changed, and I never in a million years thought that I would find a machine that you could type on and not want to rip your hair out of your head whilst doing it.

MacBook’s and their sibling MacBook Pro (and Air), along with the new Apple keyboards are designed in such a way that a light tap and your words appear.  The screens on the MacBooks are crisp, clear and easy to read, with great contrast, and the machines themselves are light and as functional as the desktop models.

I am ecstatic at the moment that I am able to be typing this latest blog entry on a machine I never thought in a million years I’d be able to replace.  More bloggin later..

John Eaves awesome design

the start of a major project...

I admit it I procrastinate.   Some time ago I was asked if I would model this beastie and so I said fine..  It *is* a really cool design and John Eaves is without question one of the foremost designers on the planet for this sort of thing, so I thought it would be kinda fun, but…              I put it off.

No more, it’s started now and fromt ime to time I’ll update it’s progress here.

Let the fun begin.
