Finally found a use for that digital photo frame.

Posted by grelmar on January 17th, 2012

I haven’t actually talked about the fractals in my posts for a bit, but the one in the post bears mentioning, and it relates to the post as a whole.  You really need to click on this one and see it full sized.  It has a rainbow coloured fern/feather look to it that’s quite spectacular […]

My Personal 2011 Video and Movie Round Up

Posted by grelmar on January 3rd, 2012

A lot of people put out their “best of” lists at the end of the year/beginning of the new year.  This isn’t that.  This is my list of  “TV Shows, Videos, and Movies that I watched and enjoyed and you might not have heard of or enjoyed.”  If I did a “best of” list, it […]

First Impressions and Thoughts on Google+

Posted by grelmar on July 14th, 2011

A few days ago I got my invite to Google+, the big G’s latest attempt at building out a social networking service.  The invite came (of course) from a longtime friend, who rates as even more of an Early Adopter than me.  I’d been reading about it since before it had even launched – it […]

That “Rock Star From Mars” kind of feeling.

Posted by grelmar on March 5th, 2011

Why does Charlie Sheen get all the credit?  Haven’t we all had that “Bitchin’ Rock Star from Mars” kind of feeling?  Sure, I’ll give him full credit for coining the phrase.  But all of us have done something, pulled off some kind of stunt, that gave us that (temporary) feeling of total awesome.   Maybe […]

February 2011 Fractal Gallery

Posted by grelmar on March 1st, 2011

Here’s a collection of all the fractals I posted in February, 2011.  All images are 1920 x 1200 when viewed full size.  To view an image, simply click on it when in thumbnail view.  Or right click and “View Image” when in slide-show view.  The gallery also happens to play nice with Cooliris/Piclens, if you […]

I nicknamed this fractal “wheat-field” –  and if you look at the full size image, it isn’t hard to tell why.  Wheat-fields, aside from reminding me of long, boring drives across the prairies, remind me of my early teens.  I spent a decent chunk of my summers in those years visiting one uncle or another […]

Better “done” than perfect – Why software is broken.

Posted by grelmar on February 24th, 2011

I colour shifted this fractal a bit.  It reminds me of a slightly distorted Yin without the accompanying Yang.  (Or is it Yang without the Yin?) I was flipping through my feeds, and came across an interesting bit of a rant against Facebook and they’re poor security implementation on a security research blog.  I found […]

Ahh, the bliss of extreme fatigue.

Posted by grelmar on February 22nd, 2011

This is kind of an ugly fractal – something I rendered out from XaoS, ran through some colour shifting, de-selected the centre, and then distorted the heck out of the surrounding field. Can’t even remember what fractal it was based on, other than I seem to remember zooming in near endlessly on a tiny dot. […]

Why are tech pundits so predictably wrong?

Posted by grelmar on February 21st, 2011

I took a couple of days off from posting, so let’s get back into the swing of things with some vague thought waving. I spend far too much time reading tech-centric news and forums.  And one of the things that strikes me, is how often the tech pundits, professional journalists, and industry insiders so completely […]

Coffee snobbery.

Posted by grelmar on February 18th, 2011

Another XaoS rendered fractal.  Reminds me of a Mardi Gras face mask. A colleague from the U.S. was up for some meetings this week, and brought me a mighty fine pound of coffee from a boutique roaster in San Francisco.  It’s kinda an inside joke about the fact that I work really weird hours, and […]
