1. Random Bits

    Apologies in advance for the recent lapse of posts from me. Busy week or so. First off, this is my first post from my new 12" Apple PowerBook. It's quite the machine. In other news, the other end of my local connection, and AirPort Base Station (wireless router) now (finally) terminates in a DSL modem. Speakeasy has been good thus far.

    One of the first things I watched with my new high speed (although, not officially "broadband" which 1 Megabit and higher, I get around half that) connection was a sequel to the classic "Napster Bad" animation, "Sue All the World." Not quite as good as the original, but what else is new. It's funny.

    Lastly, a new must have gizmo: Kensington WiFi Finder.

    I saw this mentioned at a couple places. The design is clean XHTML and CSS, it's awefully pretty too. The design is by Doug Bowman.

  3. Linux and Movie Magic

    Linux clusters have been taking over studio render farms for a while. Including being used in the new movie Sinbad. eweek has an article about the trend. I was amazed by the comments about what 64-bit computing does to the process...

    "DreamWorks had, for example, one sequence that took 24-hours to be rendered on a 32-bit system, but which took just 20 minutes on Itanium-based servers…"

    That's crazy!!

    Interesting interview where Linda goes through her work in the EXPOSÉ 1 book. I especially found this interesting since I ordered one of these nifty digital art books myself.

  5. MTV does Spider Man

    Tomorrow night is the premiere of a new Spider-Man cartoon on MTV. I guess I better set my VCR since I'll be out. It looks to be done in 3D with cell shading. The video they have on the web site looks a little rough around the edges. It looks more like I'm watching a video game versus a real cartoon. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt since I'm such a big fan of all things Spidey.

    One of the interesting things is the cast. What seem to be the main three characters, voiceovers consist of, Peter (Neil Patrick Harris,) MJ (Lisa Loeb,) Harry (Ian Ziering.) And apparently Peter and MJ are already dating, no build up of their relationship. Some plot modifications in general I guess.

    I'll just keep my fingers crossed. July 11th, 10:00pm EST.
