Don't know when I'm getting a new one; hopefully soon. :S

I have a new Dell Studio desktop supposed to be delivered within 3 weeks, barring any unforseen circumstances.  4 cores of cpu and craploads of memory - more than anything I know what to do with , lol,  but you  can be sure a HD video is in short order once I can get apo to work with Win7 :D

I mentioned in this mynameishalo.deviantart.com/ar… deviation that I would upload a better encode of the video and here it is.

www.megaupload.com/?d=EMWSHJVR
(if you have trouble with Megaupload,  make a note here or in the comments of the above deviation and I will find an alternative upload host.)

You will need a suitable h264/x264 codec installed on your puter or just get VLC Media Player www.videolan.org/vlc/ available for most platforms - and I recommend turning on the motion blur option when watching, it just makes everything "flow" so much smoother :D

I must thank :iconstarlightie: for suggesting my deviation to :iconcmptrwhz:

Needless to say I will not be able to thank everyone who fav'd individually so I thank you all.

Have a happy and safe holiday. :)

Well, my winter blahs appear to be over.  Those short days seem to depress the hell out of me,  but the days are now indeed longer and I seem to have my "passion" back.  The only cold I wanna see right now comes in a brown bottle :D :D :D

It's gonna take a wee bit o' time to sort through all that.

A big collective thanks to everyone who fav'd.

My PC has been busy rendering frames for my next apo animation (preview fc85.deviantart.com/fs40/f/200… but I had to break it down in manageable sessions since the thing would require 4 solid non-stop days to do it in one go and that is just unacceptable since that would get in the way of my new found addiction - Stepmania www.stepmania.com/!!! :D :D :D   

Only have 1200/4200 frames rendered so far so it'll be a few days yet :/

Thanks to everyone who :+fav:d - I appreciate every single one but sadly I cannot thank each one personally. :(

Laters ;)

***EDIT***
Yet another setback.  I now have to re-render 600 @$?&ing frames because of a careless mistake I made in a keyframe that caused a sudden "pop" in the animation (forgot to set the Julia3D power to the same value, you can't gradually morph a power variable).  That's 10 hours down the crapper.

What is the power level?

So if anyone can capture my 9001st pageview,  I will forever be indebted to you.  Chances are I won't catch it myself as I will probably be sleeping, working, fapping to goru/furry/Boxxy, etc.... It has special significance to me hehehehe.

In before go back to 4chan.

My most gracious gratitude goes out to dazza1008 :icondazza1008: for the 2x3 month subscription. :hug:


Also,  starting to get over the post-holiday blahs so I should become more active soon.  I just have this overwhelming urge to hibernate at this time of year :p

As always,  thanks to everyone who has enjoyed my work.  Every fav and view is truly appreciated.

To-do list:

- learn how to implement CSS on my page to make it super ultra tacky and completely lower the real-estate value of fellow deviants :p
- take the time to record custom deejay mix for destinysolo :icontina1138: (I haven't forgotten,  I'm just lazy this time of year  :D)
- deleted ???

on WebDesignerDepot.com www.webdesignerdepot.com/2009/… .  I was completely unaware of it - I only found out via a pm I received informing me of possible theft of my work but I just want to clarify to all that I'm perfectly OK with the feature as only lo-res versions are being displayed with link-backs to my original page.

Some fellow Deviant's artwork is also featured - whether or not they gave their blessings is unknown,  BUT if you ARE one of them,  do realize that the feature is getting a lot of DIGG.COM traffic (594 diggs at time of this journal update). Do not underestimate the power of the Digg.  

Walter (of webdesignerdepot.com) sent me a pm earlier informing me of his possible faux-pas and apologized and I replied that I am completely OK with it.

Over 4000 frames to render,  2200 done so far (and maybe a custom composition in FL Studio for sound?)

As always,  my apologies for not being able to thank all the faves or answer all comments. :(

I recently took the time to re-render Fleur d'Apo Fleur D'apo by mynameishalo from the original posted dimensions of 1600x1600 pixels to 2560x2560 pixels.  This should be adequate for 20"x20" prints.  I would have rendered higher rez, but my p.o.s. pc lacks the ram and horsepower to render that size in this lifetime lol.

Also,  my apologies if I have not thanked you for faving my work or responded to comments (again).  I DO appreciate all of the favs and comments,  but I lack the time due to IRL issues.  My sincerest thanks to everyone.

IF I don't have time to update my journal again this month,  I would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season (Merry Christmas).
