Oh hey, want to be friends?

I want to one day go up to someone and say that, just to see how they react. Also because I have no friends. Seriously, I only ever play Left 4 Dead in person these days. My xbox live friends are so busy hugging zombies and watching videos that they no longer want to cooperatively kill them with me. Oh, well – at least they included the split screen mode.

Guys, a few days ago Sheldon basically called me a liar. Why? Because he’s insensitive. To satisfy him, here’s a picture:

I wonder how many copyright laws I’m breaking right now. Hopefully few to none.

Relatedly, you’ll all be happy to learn that one of my walls is now officially red. I really feel it better symbolizes whatever it is walls are supposed to symbolize this way.

Once upon a semester, I had a class called CSc405 – known to some as Computer Graphics. Taught by Hausi Müller, we were assigned a few interesting projects. These projects were lengthy and elaborate. If I were to guess, I would say that they tended to take around forty hours to complete.

I had to do a few essays in Computer Science, usually in my elective psychologies or English classes. Conversely, the essays assigned in those guys usually took more like one hour, or max six.

Anyway, what I’m getting at is that I dedicated a fair chunk of time to some of these fourth year computer science projects. We became close. I kept them.
I wanted to show one to Karl, though I suspect he’s seen it, and that is the reason behind this blog.

It should pop up in its own window when you click the link. Click and drag with each of the three mouse buttons, in turn.

    prob should have been conservative and split this into three blogs, but I’m whatsit… impatient.

    Remember when the only projects I actually finished in that class were the SVG drawing app(s) and the POV Ray model? I would leave the other ones with my customary 6-10 hours assignment completion window and then suddenly realize that they were a lot more involved than I had previously anticipated. Oops.

    I guess I can believe now.
    But that won’t stop my insensitivity.

    I don’t think I ever saw that curve revolution thing =O That’s pretty impressive? I didn’t know you’d worked with splines/culling/etc?
