Image Resources

July 1st, 2009 | Posted by pftq in 42 | #

Resources and tools for creating images, video, and more...

     Below are some useful sites to look at if you make any visual form of multimedia.  Usually, I will try to list only free sources rather than those that require a subscription.

Interesting Photoshop Tutorials

Recreating the Dreamworks Logo with Clouds and Sky - Some of the image links are broken, but the instructions are still there and the end product is fantastic.

If you have to be trained to recognize something of value, it just isn’t that valuable.

Reading Memory

June 27th, 2009 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

  First Image of Memory Being Made - I completely mistook the headline for implying that memory can be translated to an image (photo, scan).  For a moment, I thought we’d actually be able to scan our minds soon and save images off of them. :P

  Guess that’s a little bit further in the future since they’re just now figuring out what memory in the brain even looks like (not the memory itself but the part of the brain that holds the memory - which isn’t really what the memory looks like but the memory container looks like… kinda like memory cards I guess - ack, confusing terms!).  I guess perhaps in the short term future, we can look forward more on learning to increase our memory or enhance.

  Maybe one day we can buy extra proteins to enlarge our memory capabilities! :D (though I wouldn’t want a bigger head as a result of it)

  Still, I’d really like to be able to make any image or sound just by thinking it - actually have some machine read the memory off my mind.  That would be useful…

Losing work over something stupid is like dying abruptly because you forget to eat.

Life is Easy

Life is easy. It’s just when you do something you think is impossible - things get a lil’ hard.

VCR/VHS Resources

June 17th, 2009 | Posted by pftq in 42 | #

Maintaining or obtaining the VCR and VHS, for whatever purposes…
     Yes, VHS is dead technology, but for various reasons, some might want to keep the tape and machine. A few might even want to obtain them. You might want a VCR spare to watch really old tapes, or you might want to start converting tapes and still need the VCR to do it. Good VCRs are becoming harder to come by, so it’s ever more important to keep whatever ones you have in working condition - same goes for tapes, especially if you recorded them yourself.
     Below are possible links to check out if you want to obtain or maintain your VCR and tapes, as well as other links related.

Three Years Past

June 12th, 2009 | Posted by pftq in Stories | #
     A freshman boy walks down the school hallway eating a cup of ice cream he got from across the street.  While walking, he suddenly looks up from his ice cream to realize his surroundings look different.  It's the same location with some things altered, perhaps looking older or worn out.  He eventually realizes he has ended up 3 years into the future.
     His friends tell him he's crazy.  When the boy tries to use his ice cream as proof, they tell him he just got it from across the street.  Defeated, the boy just accepts his situation for the time being.
     His learning is accelerated and he quickly adapts to his new life.  He seems to learn things instantaneously sometimes (such as math) even though he doesn't remember having been good at it before.  One day his friends bug him about the ice cream again and the boy gets irritated.  The boy suddenly shouts, "How could I have gotten the ice cream...[More]
