YASP (Yet Another Software Package)…

July 24, 2011

I’ve now added BRL-CAD to my list of software packages to learn…

Is there a method to this madness, or just madness in my method? Does anyone smell a pattern brewing? Or is that just a pot of hot caffeine?

Minor Notes…

July 5, 2011

Well, it’s still a slow time in the studio here in July. Nothing design-wise has been generated since the last entry, and I’m sure you’re tapping your feet waiting for new content. The coffee pot is being cleaned out of all the crud in the lines…

As mentioned in the previous post, I had two Windows machines remaining, while the others were running Ubuntu. I can now let you know one of those machines – the Win7 box – is now a fully-qualified Ubuntu 11.04 system; meaning I now have four out of five computers running a seriously fast OS. One of the two laptops (a dual-core AMD Turion) runs the x64 flavor, and I am suitably impressed.

The effort to learn Qt is progressing. I’m not totally comfortable with it yet, but it is much easier than it was a couple of months ago…
