I have been sleeping…

… way too long. Too busy packing stuff and tying loose ends. Today I found out that one of the earliest 3D modelers I used, TrueSpace is now available for free, gratuit, gratis, for noppes, nada, nix. Caligari is the company that created TrueSpace and the company was acquired by Microsoft a few months ago.

I have used version 4 of this modeler for quite some time, and got accustomed to the somewhat non-standard but highly efficient user interface. Then as technology progressed and I did not want to spent money on upgrades.. I sort of abandoned it. But WOW.. it is there: version 7.6 for grabs and for keep! That got me all excited! The SDK is available too.. so development of plugins is possible.

Oh boy.. that will keep me stuck to the PC for days and days..

Getting some work done…

Tempting… sitting in front of my PC… staring at the screen… casually browsing a bit and have nothing to worry about for a while… and time slowly moves on… and on… and on…

Then suddenly it hits me! Ohw man… I FINALLY have some time to make real progress and work on all the stuff that I want to work on for years already and I let it waste! So today I kicked myself back into shape and decided to actually be – somewhat – productive.

Cool.. so what is the plan? Well.. I once was proud owner of Poser 4, upgraded to Poser 5 and last year when ContentParadise had this crazy blow-out sale I picked up version 6. But where I actually used Poser 4, I never came to installing version 6. And I have HEAPS of content for it too! So that will be todays job, read up on creating a good install.. what to do with runtimes and so on. I also ‘use’ DAZ|Studio and that one does not really care where content sits on the PC, but I remember Poser does.. so back to browsing I guess.. tho not so randomly now *grins*…

Update: wow… so many sites around! But I bumped into this one: morphography and I absolutely love it. Concise and to the point info and heaps of usefull links and downloads.

Back on-line

WOW.. been a bit hectic lately! And I suppose that follows directly from the limited number of posts sofar *grins*

I have packed all my stuff and relocated to the other side of the world. Getting there was not so hard, getting ready to go there was. And in all dust whirls caused by packing I forgot all access information for this blog … Luckily I know databases *grins* so that was fixed easily.

From now on I will have plenty time to start all my projects that have been in wait state forever. So keep your eyes open for fresh updates. Probably one of the first ones to come is the move to Umbraco.. they are in beta for version 4, and oh man, it has new features that should make any .Net developer drool.. uhm.. make that ANY developer. More on that soon!

For now .. I just have to add that I got here in Oz allright, and no .. it does not feel like I am walking upside down.. tho I must say that their winter to spring type weather looks much like the summer to fall type I left before. I am truly looking forward to some real summer… Life is going to be good!
