the gigital resources used in the production of Avatar (2009)

This is very, very impressive but is becoming part of history. The preproduction phase of three sequels to be released starting December 2017 began in November last year.

I wish to live long enough to watch all the three of them, and also to see the first manned landing on Mars. :)

It has twice as many processors as my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet and has USB ports the GT2 doesn't have. It's a tablet class device in a memory stick form factor.  8)

Exactly half of its processors total are on the GPU. :D

MSDN - Project Detroit: OBD-II Manager

A Microsoft Channel 9 Coding4Fun project.



Maybe Patrice can figure out how to incorporate this into his models and plug the USB cable into his car making the (model) cars none of us can afford come alive.  8)

PowerBASIC Update

After doing a small amount of research and asking around, it seems the company is not really operational at this point.  I don't believe either Jim Bailey or Tom Hanlin are involved any more.

I really like this logo and can see a variation for Script Ledger.

PC sales continue to take a beating

PC OEMs are hoping that Terry Myerson, the head of Microsoft's Operating Systems Group, wasn't making an idle boast when he said Windows 10 would be on a billion devices in two to three years. That's because by research house Canalys's reckoning, "The global PC market, including tablets, experienced an annual decline of 7 percent in Q1 2015."

It has been interesting and a great leaning experience lurking the Mike & Patrice show. Patrice's latest mesh editor example sparked an idea for how to buy clothes on-line.  Have a 3D model created of your body and vendors can match inventory they have that would be a good fit. They could also demo it for you on-line. Just a thought.

 Fits like a glove.  :)

... and you could also earn a coupla $$ in the process by hiring yourself out to them to create the 3D models of their current stock. No wait, this can even turn into a never-ending inflow of cash because the inventory's going to be updated every season. :)

I'm calling this "the land of untamable idiots". There are so many more urgent challenges in the world today! For example, look at that crazy putinist Russia: this weekend's prime time on their main nationwide TV channels has been devoted to  some heated debates on whether they should drop an H-bomb on Istanbul or not!! HORRIBLE!!!
