They may be famous, but can they sing?

I’m a celebrity, but I’d rather be a pop star.

Coming soon to NBC.

The TV networks are running out of ideas…

Holy crap! I emailed my resume to a company and they actually called me back, within a half-hour! I’ve got an interview tomorrow at 10am!

Note to self: Don’t send out resumes when you’re not really awake yet, because you might be expected to do a phone interview within a half hour.

A+ Core Hardware Exam: 695 / 800
A+ Operating Systems Technologies Exam: 776 / 800

I’m officially an unemployed A+ Certified Technician, yay!

At some point I’ll take the NET+ exam, too, but I can’t afford it right now.

On your marks! Get set! Render!

I had the day off work today, so having nothing better to do, I decided to race raz0r (PowerBook G4 1.33Ghz, OS X 10.4.1) and media (Pentium III 933mhz, Ubuntu linux (Hoary)) in rendering with Blender.

raz0r, rendering frame #15 from Magnets: The Movie, required 313MB RAM, and took 2:30 mins to render the frame at 400×300.

media required 380MB RAM, and took 3:40 mins to render the same frame at the same size.

In the words of Stormy Waters, “Smoked that bitch!”. I was expecting the outcome to be along those lines, but I’m not sure why linux requires almost 70MB more RAM to render the same frame.

The output pictures from both were identical, obviously.

I was playing around with Blender a bit, and I decided to model the magnet toys I have sitting on my desk.
