  • The DB on Facebook page has been a real eye opener. All these years I’ve been looking at emails and comments from people, a lot of text, and now I can see human faces. While I know there are real people behind all of these emails I get, this makes it all seem more personal and real. Very cool.

    I had an idea that might make my Facebook page a little more interesting. I’m sure a lot of you out there have some wicked multi-monitor setups running my wallpapers. For a long time I’ve wanted to have a place where people could share photos of their workstations and it looks like the Facebook “Fan Photos” sections might fit the bill.

    I personally run only one monitor but I would love to see some of the multi-monitor (and cool single monitor) setups out there. If you would like to share your desktop with the world please feel free to post a photo of it in the “Fan Photos” section of the Facebook page. Thanks!

  • Based on my experience rendering “Promise of Spring” (see post from 2/12) I’ve decided that I need to upgrade my hardware. Here’s my plan: I’ve purchased two Xeon 5365 (quad-core 3 GHZ) processors and 16 GB of RAM. These will go into my current machine, upgrading it from from 4 cores to 8 and 8 GB of RAM to 16. My dual-core processors and RAM will go into a new box that I am building from scratch on which I hope to use to render projects while I work on new stuff on my main machine.

    Back to work on my new wallpaper now…
