I went to the same college he did (a few years later but in the same Film Studies department). He's actually a really nice guy and very supportive of the young up-and-comers. And his animation is great fun.

I should tell you about one of the comps I use at work:

AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+
3 Gigs Ram
Nvidia geForce 6600GT graphics card
175 GB hard drive
Runs Windows XP 64-bit edition

This thing is a real number cruncher. Me likes it.

AMD 64 3500+ Asus A8N-E 1 Gig ram (matched 512kb sticks) Some graphics card in the line of an Asus A9600 Ok system, but what makes it cool for what I wanted is this little PCI card I got that essentially is a computer unto itself. It is equivalent to a Celeron 500 so it isn't that fast, but I didn't...

A long time ago, in a city far, far away, I too took the ASVAB. It was a good excuse to get out of a half a day of classes. I think I did pretty well, but to be honest, I didn't really care about how I did. What I got in return was about 3 years of harrassment from recruiters from the various branch...

Anything that sounds remotely close to "Pretty in Pink." This includes such bands as Flock of Seagulls, The Thompson Twins, Simple Minds, and, of course, the offenders themselves, The Psychadelic Furs. Heck, I might as well make it any band whose lead singer is over-accentuating his (real or faked) ...

The IT guy in my office got a beta version of Vist to test and really wasn't all that impressed. Basically it is a prettier version of XP. Sure there are enhancements, but one should probably wait till mid/late 2007 to make sure most of the inevitable security/operational flaws are ironed out. If I ...

Not only that, but the thing doesn't even work (it overheats after a few minutes). Not wanting to sound big-headed or anything (some of my projects have been a tad embarrasing to say the least!) but that truely is hideous! At least I don't post my hideous failures on the web and make them out to be ...

Just a quick comment (this is a topic which would lend itself better to a conversation than to typed comments): One has to remember that there is a significant (huge) amount of "post-processing" done in the brain after the rods and cones detect light. From simple things like "flipping the image" so ...

Sony LCD Manufactured *with* LED backlight

This is pretty old but I had never seen it. I guess Sony is now producing a high-end LCD TV with propreitary LED backlighting. Supposedly they render colors better than traditional fluorescent backlit LCDs. However, with a $7,500 - $10,000 price tag, I doubt any of us will ever find out. Now, if th...

In my PSNES (which has been done for months, sans case) I used this . I modified it for my particular battery usage, but it works great. Parts are pretty standard and cheap. It uses almost no power and I used a blinking LED, which draws very little current so it doesn't exacerbate the problem of low...

I like rock, but only if it is soft. Like Michael Bolton or Sade or Hall and Oates. And, of course, John Tesh.

The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac seem to be mysteriously rapping from beyond the grave...if you count that as "playing music."
