Jeremy Heminger in Space Suit Modeled in Anim8or

For several years in the early to mid-2000's I was very interested in 3D modelling. I generally used a free program called Anim8or however I did eventually move on to Blender...I still tend to use Anim8or because it's just really simple.

The disappointing thing about these images is that they are all low-resolution. I lost a ton of working files from this era.

Curious Pondering - MYSQL And How It's Always Eventually Evaluated As A String

Thu, 02/15/2018 - 08:16

I was working recently on building an abstraction for IndexedDB in Javascript and as I was building I was thinking ahead about building queries. I have only just begun using the feature and so I haven't really delved into retrieving data as it refers to searching. Regardless, I was thinking about building a simple SQL type language. This is really impractical of course but, the thought crossed my mind for a second. It passed quickly mainly because I would be evaluating a string and accessing a database.

Surrounding Lake Perris in Southern California near Moreno Valley there are a number of trails that are not exactly fun but, there are a few hills that are challenging and the scenery is rather nice if you enjoy wide open spaces. Often I will ride the various trails until I am nearly exhausted. Then I will ride downhill to the lake. There are restrooms with water fountains. The water is clean and surprisingly cold. Great for refilling your water bottle or camel backpack. After refilling I have on hot summer days taken a dip in the lake.

Some Old 3D Animation I Built With Anim8or

This stuff used to be so much fun to build...1. I wish I still had all the stuff I built. 2. I wish I was still inspired to do this stuff...Now I sit down, start to do some modeling and in a few minutes I find myself coding or watching a YouTube video...It just doesn't hold my interest as much anymore. This was back in 2008 - 2010 ... ish.

Meh...Maybe some day soon I'll get inspired.

Animated Grass Coded Into Anim8or Using Game Maker Language

Mon, 01/15/2018 - 18:15

In the late 2000's I was really into 3D animation and making 3D games. I was primarily using a free program called Anim8or. The program saved its files as a readable text file that could easily be edited. Also, to program had some simple methods for morphing model animation. I decided to do a few experiments dynamically creating animation by combining the output of another program I was using at the time Game Maker.
