My band, Nonagon, will be playing a live show on Saturday, August 5th at The Note in Chicago's trendy Wicker Park neighborhood (1565 N. Milwaukee). The show starts around 9 o'clock PM and the line-up is as follows:
One of the first Flash animations I ever created was for a site that Ajenda produced called Easter Fun. Well, six years later, we still get about a thousand or so hits a month. In an attempt to squeeze some money out of this Internet relic, we are redesigning it to fit in some Google AdSense ads. In the process, I have completely revamped the look of the menu animation. Check out those gradients! And, as an added bonus, the chick doesn't squawk at you every 3 seconds.
This past weekend I made an impulse purchase in the form of a new DVD player. My previous player (a Samsung DVD-P421 from 2001) seemed okay, but recently it was hiccuping on the many-a-DVD layer switch. This always seemed to happen at a key moment in whatever movie I was watching. A minor glitch, but annoying nonetheless.
I've added a new image of my post-Nova art studio.
Okay, NewEgg has redeemed itself, UPS still sucks though. I checked my credit card statement and we finally, 7 days later, got the ten dollar credit we were offered. The CF card is still working, faster and better than ever.
Recently I have discovered the joys of DOS emulation on my Windows XP machine. DOSbox is an open-source project which provide MS-DOS emulation that is tailored to gaming. There are builds for Win XP, Mac and Linux.
