Mama, don’t let your babies, grow up to be techies…

Kinda neat one…  Not often you end up rendering a fractal that ends up being all straight lines.  At least, not with the software/methods I use. So, it’s Saturday night, and here I sit locked down in front of the keyboard…  Again.  Like so many Saturday nightsw before me, and so many after.  I’m really […]

Why “Big Hollywood” Deserves it’s Fate.

Nothing screams “80’s !!!” quite like Pastel Pink.  To be honest, I was wondering if I’d ever come up with a way to sneak this fractal into a post, but inspiration struck a few minutes ago, and it’s the perfect fit for this post. It would be a bit of an understatement to say that […]

How to know you’ve made it as a great work of Sci-Fi…

This is a fairly neutral fractal, which actually makes for a really good wallpaper.  Something interesting, without getting in the way of the readability of your desktop icons. So, I’m skimming through my RSS feeds, and I catch an article on Nat Geo about using asteroids for space travel. Without getting into the merits of […]

Not much to say…

This fractal has a nice zen minimalism to it, which somewhat fits my mood at this exact moment in time. Today was my “day off”, and as a result I only had to spend two and a half hours in a meeting, right smack in the middle of the day.  After that, I drove home, […]

This is kind of a neat fractal.  Reminds me of stirring your coffee before you drip in the cream.  Which is appropriate, because one of the scientific uses for fractals is to simulate fluid dynamics.  This image might give you a sense of just how that works. It also provides a good segue into my […]

Deepest darkest Africa.

This fractal has both a neat pattern to it, and a fairly subtle blue colour scheme.  It actually makes a really good desktop background because the blue/black contrast allows for really visible icons on icon text.  Keeps it easy to find all your stuff. Now, as for the title of the post… I got thinking […]

Some more thoughts about the OS “Wars”

Posted by grelmar on February 6th, 2011

So, I think I’ll put the fractals at the top left of the post, so people can get to them quickly without having to plow through whatever I want to rant about on any given day.  I kinda like this one, it’s a really pleasant soft orange pattern. But onto other stuff… A friend, Xepol, […]

Maybe a Fractal a day?

Posted by grelmar on February 5th, 2011

I keep wondering what to do with this space.  This blog as a whole suffers from an extreme lack of posts over the past few years.  More than once, I’ve tried to come up with a reason to do “a post a day”, but really, that’s a lot of work.  And I have a day […]
