Finally found a use for that digital photo frame.

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 […]

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 […]

Ahh, the bliss of extreme fatigue.

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. […]

Better Call Saul.

Posted by grelmar on March 28th, 2010

Ok, so there might be one or two people out there who may not realize that possibly the greatest show of this millennium, Breaking Bad, has entered it’s 3rd season. Now Walt and Jesse are really the leads.  But one of the characters you gotta love is Saul Goodman, the world’s greatest lawyer (warning – […]

Momentary Geek Panic Moment…

Posted by grelmar on December 14th, 2009

Ok, sometimes there’s a downside to being a nerd. Yah, I can hear the gasps in the audience now.  But it does happen. My most recent nerdburn moment came a few minutes ago, when I finally got around to updating to the latest version of Thunderbird, bar none the best email client available, from the […]

The World’s Most Excessive Mouse

Posted by grelmar on November 12th, 2009

What do you get when you unleash Open source types on hardware design?  Sometimes, you get beautiful, quirky, devices.  Sometimes you get “design by committee” monstrosities that would have been better off never leaving the drawing board. The WarMouse, also called the OpenOffice Mouse (which seems to be how they’re branding it), falls into the […]

Code Comments.

Posted by grelmar on November 8th, 2009

This might seem a little odd, but I have a habit of reading the code of web pages.  It might seem less odd when you realize I still do a bit of WebDev now and then, and it can be a useful way of figuring out the tricks people use to accomplish different things. Sometimes, […]

So, I guess I got hacked….

Posted by grelmar on August 21st, 2008

Yah…  My own damn fault, as I haven’t been updating the backend software. Fortunately, I was smart enough to backup the database on a regular basis, so nothing really lost. I’ll get a new theme up and running to “celebrate” the upgrade to the newer, more secure backend. Oh, and I’ll get the video plugin […]

Viral Video

Ok, I’m a Canuck, so I don’t really have a horse in the race as far as the upcoming American election is concerned. But this is a damn funny video.

Weaponize Your Pentium II

Posted by grelmar on May 25th, 2008

Subtitle: Yes, I have way too much time and spare parts… Now, you might think that, given the order of posts, the following project was inspired by the Conan Night I held last weekend, but the two are fairly unrelated. Actually, the inspiration for the following project came during the winter when I started to […]
