      TheRecreator

      I've been thinking about why Monty's passing has hit us all so particularly hard. He was an amazing person, and an inspiration to so many people. Our lives were enriched by his work.

      But I don't think that's it. I think there's a simpler reason - this community is like family. We've seen inside each other's lives, rooted for each other as we strive to succeed. We've cried through the tough times, and laughed through the good times.

      That is not to minimize the impact Monty has had on us all, and on me personally. I didn't know him much, but his words from his Comic-Con 2009 panel still resonate with me. I can't quote them exactly, but it was something to the tune of "If you keep waiting until your technique is perfect, you're never going to release anything. Use what you've got and just create! There may be other people better than you at what you're doing, but nobody can replace your unique voice."

      I may have channeled Neil Gaiman there a bit, but I'm sure Monty would agree. Don't let fear stop you from putting out content that you love. Whether your tools are calipers, motion tracking suits, or stick figures, you have something worth giving to the world. Your family is behind you - get to it.

    • Funding a Trip to RvBOR

      3 years ago

      TheRecreator

      I've decided I want to go to RvBOR. Problem is, I can't afford to get there on my own. I don't want to ask for handouts, but I'm currently a little on the unemployed side...

      So I'd like to offer my services to anyone on the site who has need of them. My skills include the following:
      - MSEE in Electrical Engineering (Multimedia & Creative Technology)
      - Graphic Design (see my board game for examples of my work)
      - Game Design (see above)
      - Web Design (HTML and CSS, with limited Java, PHP, and Javascript abilities)
      - Image Processing (optical character recognition, video summarizing, etc.)

      I am also an excellent problem solver. I'd probably be in IT support right now if it weren't for my mom's infuriatingly unspecific bug reports (and even those I was able to decode).

      To keep the con budget manageable, I may also need to crash at someone's place over the weekend and ask for a ride to and from the airport. If anyone can offer either, please let me know.

      As for the "hire Rec for odd jobs" stuff, please leave a comment or contact me by message, and I'll work something out. ^_^

        I know what you mean. I have the same problem with a story thread I have to get around to. It is the 3rd and final part of the series and the whole multi-series saga's only missing story-and it is pretty important because of what happens. It's like not having the Return of the King in LotR. It is on a forum story creation site too. I have just lost the enthusiasm, so I know right where you are and how you feel on that.

        It's on indefinite hiatus right now while I complete another project. I'd like to finish it eventually, but to be perfectly honest I don't have the same enthusiasm for writing the comic that I once did.

      Hey, I guess you've been in the mafia group long enough to know that I have a game that's supposed to be ready for tomorrow. I need one more person, though.

      Is it possible for you to save my game before it's 12 am here, which is to say, in 1 hour?

      • CalPal

        5 years ago

        That works. I'll have you as an extra for either team.

      • TheRecreator

        5 years ago

        How 'bout this: I'll play as a seat filler until you can find someone more capable of participating. Will that work?

      • CalPal

        5 years ago

        Understood.

      • TheRecreator

        5 years ago

        I'm more concerned about being able to invest myself in the game. I don't have any time to scout people's profiles at the moment.

      • CalPal

        5 years ago

        You can still save the game. I'm waiting until 4pm today!

        If you're worried about conflict of time, I can see about giving you a not too important role. There aren't any bodyguards or cops this round, so no writing for anyone but me if that's what you're concerned about.

      • TheRecreator

        5 years ago

        I guess not, given that I got this message 3 hours too late. smiley3.gif

        At any rate, I think I'm not sure if I have the time to fully participate in Mafia. Do you need someone who's engaged in gameplay, or a seat stuffer?

        I'm not used to people I don't know taking the initiative to join our server. Given how much of an open world Minecraft is, I'm hesitant to just throw open the doors. If you could get a recommendation from someone who's already on the server, I'd feel more comfortable about giving you access.

      Compressed audio formats like mp3 and AAC are GREAT because the files are so much smaller. They SUCK, however, because the audio quality is greatly degraded from the 16-bit original from a CD. (16 bit is acceptable, but we had all hoped that by now consumers would be buying 24-bit audio. Boy were WE wrong!!)

      There are different encoding schemes to go from CD to AAC or mp3, but overall, even though some might sound different, they suffer from similar degradation and artifacts.

      Whether you buy a 256kbps file from iTunes or convert it to that yourself from a CD, it will bascially sound the same. You can, of course, rip from the cd as a 16 bit wav or aiff and maintain the higher sound quality, but the file would be 5x larger.

      I havent personally tried or even investigated the difference between making an mp3 from a 96kHz 24 bit file versus a 44.1kHz 16 bit file. My feeling is that it wont matter-the quality of the final version is the gating factor here. Actually, it does matter, technically, at least. But I doubt that the perception would be much different.

        Before I launch into a tirade about the flaws in your exploratory vessel idea (I totally typed up such an analysis for some reason), I think I should ask: what assumptions are we making regarding Earth's economic interest in the program, our production capabilities, our communications, and our atmospheric exit systems? At first glance, the idea of interstellar exploration in any capacity (let alone on the scale you've proposed) seems too expensive right now, but I doubt you wanna hear that kind of math. =P

        Possibly. You're the first person to approach to join us without an invite, so first I'd like to know where you found out about the server. Second, would you happen to have a Skype account? Most of us communicate via Skype.

      • TheRecreator

        5 years ago

        I speak of the underground rail. I've already built the rail bridge through your quarry. The only extra stuff I might build is a pedestrian path running parallel to that bridge leading from your stairs or the access tunnel to the platform (which is south of your quarry).

        There's also the question of whether or not you'd like the underground rail line to pass by your home.

      • TheBeta

        5 years ago

        I can sum the questions up by asking if it's the above or bellow ground line. If it's above, I'd like privacy. If it's the underground line, do what you think would be best. As I said I'd like the line cutting through the quarry if it's just the line and nothing else, but if you need to build extra go ahead.

        I'm at work right now - won't be able to sign onto Skype. Can you message them to me instead?

      Hey, I wanted to ask you, what art styles do you like?

        That's a difficult question, one that I can't properly answer. I tend to favor either crisp vector art or stylized "big headed" figures, but if the art is well-done and consistent I generally dig it.

      Are you posting the picture so I can put it in a journal or should I just write the journal already?
