I’ve been neglecting this journal for awhile. I’ve found that I tend to do this when my life is fluctuating, but I have little to actually do. It’s those times when I’m busy but stable that I find the time to update my journal. In any event, the big news of the past week is that I quit Intersect on Friday. Why would I do such a crazy thing? After Intersect let about […]

Saalon‘s just posted an intriguing diary entry; he posted the first part of a story, and hopefully, future installments will continue it. It’s a sort of epic fairy tale. He’s asked for my comments, so I’m providing a critique here. It’s very, very interesting. I like the idea of off-the-cuff storytelling like this. I’d be scared to try it, which perhaps is a good indication that I would benefit from trying. […]

I’ve got a bunch of short updates today, so bear with me: This morning, I finally updated Otherspace Productions’ main webpages with information on Murmur. I’m talking with Saalon about finishing the scripts for Wine to Those in Anguish, so that we can make an animated short out of it. I’m working on a small documentation website for Cosmoe, namely, Cosmoe Made Easy. Methuselah now has a working Debian […]

Heh. Phoenix Feathers is a cute, manga-inspired series about a college version of Hogwart’s. The artwork is pleasant on the eyes, too, which helps.

“The most interesting aspect with OS X is the way Apple managed to take a Unix kernel and turn it into a user-friendly OS with a charming desktop and Mac GUI. Curiously, no other company has been able to manage anything like this. The Linux folks are said to have legions of coders whose sheer numbers are supposed to be the big threat to Microsoft, but they have gotten nowhere […]

Well. I’m still at Intersect, cleaning up and preparing their online help systems for the next release. I should be done with that by Friday, and then we’ll all sit down and figure out what to do with documentation moving forward. Part of me is urging that I leave Intersect post-haste. I’d like a new beginning, and I have very little confidence in the future of this company now. OTOH, Intersect is […]

Sorry for not updating for awhile; my cable modem went out, then I learned on Monday that I think I’m going to lose my job. So. I’m rather preoccupied. Meanwhile, I received 36 episodes of Kodomo no Omacha last week, and the show is like crack. I’m already at episode 15.

More linkage: Ichigo’s Sheet Music has sheet music for dozens of animes series and films, from Ah My Goddess to X. I grabbed the Nausicaa theme, “The Real Folk Blues” from Cowboy Bebop, several Princess Mononoke songs, and a couple of themes from Tenchi Muyo! (including “Kagato’s Organ Recital” from the first OVA), among others.

Wow. Research Channel.com delivers on one of the promises of the internet: video feeds of distinguished researchers, talking about their areas of research. It’s available for a variety of access speeds (though only in Windows Media Player format), and covers a vast array of topics, from 3D modelling to ceramic art to health care.
