My job has its own equilibrium. When I’m feeling particularly like I’m in serious trouble, a very heartening set of QA numbers would come in. When I’m feeling like I can do no wrong, a particularly troublesome customer with some business or family emergency would call, making justice and company policy lock horns with each other. I would come away from such a call feeling like an unlearned imbecile.
“Take heed, lest ye fall.” That’s KJV talk for “stay focused.”
You snooze, you lose
I slept in yesterday, until 4:30 PM. I don’t much like that, as it means not much time for schooling myself in Blender 2.48.
While I’m on that subject, I recently found out that Jeff Ringtail is a Blender user. He reports difficulty rendering a horse charactsr with 2 GB of RAM. Out of curiosity, I checked up on my own machine’s properties. Not quite 600 MB RAM. I’ll need to upgrade it before Basic Bear can have any fur.
When I brought the Dell Optiplex home late in February, I wasn’t asking for much in terms of speed and memory. It could handle the newfangled Flash animation used in most banner ads, and I was pleased with that. Now I have Blender 2.48 and my dream of bringing Skye Goodfellow to life on the big rear projection screens at my church. Since Christian Assembly was primarily a music and dancing church, I knew going in that animation would have to be done on my own time and on my own dime.
