phatch

For those interested, when I do the watermarks on the images in this blog, I’m using
phatch. It’s a great piece of software for doing stuff like this in batches.

drivers are a pain!

I’ve been playing around with swapping operating systems, dual booting and stuff lately. Here’s a tip – find some forums with knowledegable people. Some folks think they know what they are talking about and others really do know. Ask around multiple places if you ever run in to problems. Also, remember the ol’ saying, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got.”… on other words sometimes just changing one little thing can sometimes change everything. I have been trying to install a sound driver for the last few days, and kept hitting a roadblock. Turns out that instead of picking the folder for Windows to search in, I had to actually tell Windows to not search and that I’d pick the right driver, even though it was the same blasted place that the search was looking in and not finding… Can’t tell you how many times I hit that roadblock and kept coming back to it, doing the same thing over and over… sometimes things are MUCH SIMPLER then we think they should be.


Long List of 3d and 2d editing software

This space will is reserved for a list of 3d and 2d editing software that I’ll drop in here in the near future, and/or build over time. I don’t have time to list it all right now, but am putting this here as a sort of reminder to myself to come back here later and add more. There’s tons of great 3d and 2d freeware and shareware out there as well as higher end stuff. I’ve played around with quite a bit of it and will post my comments on each one I have some experience with here.

Also add more like it.. other lists have been in various forums before.. but forums disappear over time. Blogs can too, but not as easily all the time.
