How much of an expert is that expert?

I was looking for work in the writing field a little while ago and I came across a listing that made me pause. Not because I wanted to take the work, but because it was just… I’m not sure how I feel about the listing, or the realization that it is probably more common than […]

Cold Mornings and Meager Meals

As I am writing this the weather app says that it is -3F in Houston, Alaska. Based on past experience it is a good 5 to 10 degrees colder where I am, making it between -8 and -13 F where I live. I am curled up on my bed, pillows piled all around me, my […]

Sahara (2005) glowing clam shells

I like the 2005 movie Sahara, staring Matthew McConaughey, Steve Zahn, and Penelope Cruz. It is a fun adventure film when one looks at it as that and does not look too closely at the science of the small bits of sideline trivia tossed out in the film. Such as the scene, roughly 24 minutes […]

Destiny 2 players want to see Eververse removed from the game

The forums for Destiny 2 have lit up with demands to have the Eververse trader removed from the game. The microtransactions debate ignited with the winter event, The Dawning, because much of the loot that was added to the game for the event is locked behind Eververse. It is possible for players to earn through […]

Scrivener settings out of whack

While I was asleep earlier my critters did… something, to Scrivener. I had not intended to nap, but had sort of passed out when I leaned back for a bit, and the cat and or dogs knocked my keyboard onto the floor and hit some kind of button combination that told every text file in […]

Fallout 4 settlers missing… settlers are on roof… uhm… What?

So, I’ve been playing Fallout 4 and I got this mission to talk to Sturges, only… I could not find him anywhere. I kept going to where it said he was based on the marker, but… no Surges. I spent quite a while hunting for him and finally decided that I needed to look up […]

Ghost in the machine?

So, I loaded a model I have been working on into Unity and moved the game camera over to take a look at it and… it did not look the same as it had in Blender. O.o I… think I might have accidentally given it a transparency layer. o.O

Yeah… that is not how […]

Eclipse over America… so fitting to my life

So, it seems that the universe has decided to cast a shadow across America. I have not looked a lot into this, it has been a high stress low enthusiasm few weeks for me, but from what I hear this eclipse covered from Alaska to Florida. Pretty impressive and I am sad that I missed […]

Lighting Issues with Knuckle Gun

The knuckle gun is the first model that I have gone for a full photo-based rendering in cycles. I created my own gold tone for the inlay sections and used metal and stone textures I got from Poliigon to create the gun and the stone surface, but I am having some trouble getting the lighting […]

TV gave up and died finally

Back around 2009 or 2010 I purchased a 40″ Element TV set. After I had to move out of my home in 2012 and into a small camp trailer the TV became my home theater system, one of the very few actual luxury items I kept and made room for in my new small home. […]
