  1. I've just discovered an amazing parody of Apple from 12 years ago!


  2. I hope this doesn't count as political. The politics is literally background to the real comedy. And now, for the most 2021 screenshot of the year so far:

  3. Dancing birds


    Also, nice sky!



    Needless to say, I've been taking lots of pictures. Apologies for not reading notifications recently, the forum break has been nice so far but I may become active again at some point! Who knows though.

      Love the sky picture! Sometimes it's just a good thing to take time off from  talking  with random internet strangers once in a while. 

  4. I've been in a Jacob Collier mood. One of the best.
  5. I'm not dead, just busy. I did make a neat render I wanted to share:

    1. Schnoz


      Looks really nice! I just have two suggestions.  The  light source seems a bit on the bright side, and the waves could be slowed down. Otherwise, I like this render.

  6. I need to study but I'm absorbed by the saying "righty tighty, lefty loosey". It is nonsensical! If the top of the turning thing is going left, the bottom is going right, and if the bottom is going left, the top is going right! There is no relative translation between the two parts!! One could use the right hand rule, that makes sense. But 'left' and 'right' don't describe rotation!!!

    1. Schnoz


      Sounds like a 3 am thought!

    2. Windows7ge


      Want me to add a layer onto the confusion?


      Left hand threaded screws. Screws that tighten when rotated counter-clockwise. :3


  7. Hot take: Hexagons are the bestagons.

    Some of you will probably get it

  8. More rendering! And it loops!

    This was inspired by the wireframe trench in Star Wars (1977), eventually I want to build this into some sort of race with wireframe spaceships, that'd be pretty neat. Generally wanting to flesh it out while keeping the aesthetic.

  9. I did some spooky rendering yesterday:


  10. Image overload. To be clear, I didn't do this thinking it looks good, just interesting. Almost comic-book like.


  11. I saw a beautiful Corvette the other day. Lucky I had my camera on me...

      @Silentprototipe  I mean, I'd be proud of that thing, as well...

    3. Bombastinator


      Very very stock.  That’s someone’s pride and joy.  That or they’ve got 12 other cars just as nice.

    4. Silentprototipe


      @Techstorm970 Considering its a relatively mint C2 I guess he does have a right to :P 

  12. I found how they make egg cartons! They just tell the cardboard to form itself into z=sin(x)sin(y)
    3D plot


    I just randomly happened upon this shape when doing some Calc 3 homework, completely unintentionally, when I thought "EGG CARTON" and distracted myself from immanently due homework.

  13. I'm not dead. Also, holy crap. Apple just released the iPhone I've been dreaming about for months -- an updated iPhone with the 4s' design! This looks as good as iPhone's aesthetic peak a decade ago... with what looks like some of the best tech out there. I'm no iPhone fanboy -- far from it -- but I'm feeling a little less loyal to my Samsung Galaxy S8 right now.

      If I can find it for a discount, I would definitely consider buying a 12 mini.

  14. Well, my new Nikon D610 is serving me well. No tech photos yet, but I do have some birds and butterflies and scenery!



    Another field

      And yeah, feel free to post all that in the parrot thread should you desire.

    4. OJTheAviator




      With my birds not being parrots, RGB, or animated (harassing a tv presenter), I feel these photos would look as out of place as wearing pajamas to a formal dinner😂


      Edit: seems as though I may have misjudged the parrot thread! I may post after all

  15. Good point about copying stuff from C to another drive. Would have saved some time. I did use the bootable registry editor, and attempted to use a backup I had made of the registry, but I got an error and wasn't able to fix it that way.
