... and if you're reading this - shouldn't you instead be 
working on a video for it? :)

Remember, it's for fun and learning.

Latest things i learned how to do:

Modelling: Lady's got new wings:
http://wip.anthrosphinx.de/episode010/20070729_224316_snap_81796.jpg
Automation: Anti-gravity strength control script-wired into 
dynamic hair/cloth.
Zero-G mode off:

Zero-G mode on:
http://wip.anthrosphinx.de/episode010/20070729_225258_snap_82378.jpg

Comments welcome. Hey, there's got to be someone left out 
there - last count was only four different senders over the 
last three weeks. That's hardly worthy for a competition 
that is heading into its tenth year! C'mon people... anyone?
(sigh)

Iíve got a WIP that I think will be in a submit-able condition for the
deadline. I donít think that Iíll be able to finish what I want to do but I
should be able to post a cyclic doodle. Itís the first time Iíve used the
animation feature of a modeler so the movement is simple and limited. But
itís better for some one to be first out of six than five :-)

That's great! Is it going to be something with Rusty, or the Commander?
No, don't tell... :) i enjoy looking forward to the unknown.

You do realize you've got quite the fan base for your creations? I know 
of at least three other people at our local internet assoc. meetings 
that also are waiting for the next episode.

For some reason I hear the sound of cash registers.

No, we're running our internet assoc. on a honorary basis 
(and have been doing for the last decade) ... :)

That *other* sound of cash registers may be due to the costs 
associated with creating computer animations, mainly 
electricity bills from overnight renders. This is one thing 
that affects me, too, and there's not much i can do about 
that. At least, i looked all over your homepage for a way to 
buy the Rusty T-shirt ;)


OT: That was another Google accident waiting to happen:
"rusty robot shirt"
resulted in (among others, of course)
http://www.robotcountryusa.com/cgi-bin/wwwcat_2.cgi?pagewant=1&catwant=wwwcat_2

Ouch. That's not even remotely similar. Then again, 30,000 $ 
for the group of robot orchestra players ?!

While we're on the topic of "shirts" - i couldn't believe this:

http://www.zazzle.com/pd/awards/pt-235?st=award&at=daily_top_10%25&day=05.12.2006

Among the TOP 10 of shirt designs - december 5, 2006?! 
(designs viewed - not necessarily bought)

Ooops. Weird. After all that time.

This one gives me the stranges redirection loop, with the date counting 
up and up and up in the browser's URL field, until Zazzle complains 
about "too many redirections"... (Safari/Mac)
Ah, the joy of different web browsers! Indispensable tools for the rich 
multi-media experience ;)

      Wow, it counted down for me using IE until it got to 1998 and then 
produced a 'cannot find server' page. Weird...
