This is legit the carpet pattern in my hotel room in New Orleans.

Wish me luck.

I made a website for the Libre Graphics Meeting 2019 in Saarbrücken, Germany next year!

It's not the official site - they went a different direction, but I figured rather than letting the design languish I would at least share it...

"What an excellent day for an exorcism."

The most chilling exchange in an amazing film.

Just have released last week's highlights: cryptomatte support in Blender, new QGIS release with 3D and animation features, feature freeze in FreeCAD, 3mf support in OpenSCAD, upcoming Flowblade 2.0 and Pitivi 1.0 releases, and more.

One interesting thing I probably should have mentioned is the meeting of FreeCAD and BRL-CAD developers where they discussed possible integration between the two projects, up to having BRL-CAD modeling tools as a FreeCAD workbench.

In the app Open Camera, you can now shoot log video! That's pretty cool.

"ƒ/8 and be there" == old-school "auto-exposure" mode to photographers. At least, I think so.

Come check out or share any fun tips you wish others knew when shooting photographs!

I just noticed that I've been a member at blenderartists.org for *14 years* this October. Holy moly! That means I've been using @blender for something like 16 years now...

Here's a couple of recent renders of mine.

I'm not happy with how the Wil Wheaton situation was resolved. An admin was overwhelmed with frivolous reports about him and felt forced to exile him. I've said before that I think it sets a dangerous precedent on how a large group of people can mobilize to drive anyone off the fediverse. Mob rule is universally dangerous: Mods and admins must examine evidence and decide based on wrongdoing and danger, and not on how many times someone was reported.
