Just a little bit, a little bit at a time, Lord.
Kafka was a dillhole, Orwell was a submissive? depends on who you ask. . .
So what did just happen?
There has been a very lot of very important very very this week and I could let you know what I've heard myself but, it isn't anything. I'd just be repeating what you can find on your own. I have no insight or new knowledge, but a lot of questions.
If I started putting out my conjecture about what has just 'gone done' and why, I'd me just fanning the flames of conflation of simultanious events as being related, or reveeling, by just making a good guess, someones close to the mark explanation about how and why and who and who's doing it and when will it end, etc.
I ran into someone who I didn't know who wanted to show me a photo of him in Vegas with a famous Rock Star (who I love) and it was cool. and I was like 'way cool. But then I asked him 'how it was' in Las Vegas since the beginining of last month. Were people still upset? He said not that he saw. So what can I conclude from that ? Business as usual? I'm asking questions and no one can answer them so why?
One of the euphemisms that is being used to describe the mass-arrests in Suadi is that there is a 'corruption probe' going on. Another was that it is a 'counter coup'.
Two 'princes' died in unexpected suddenness, one in an heliocoptor crash, the other in a fire fight with his body guards defending him. So the government by consensus is over? Or did the situation warrent this for reasons that won't be put forward for 75 years because the nature of it is too sensative?
And our State Department is on board with the on-going 'corruption probe' in Saudi. There are many other dots in this constilation that we could connect. I't all over the news who is connected to who, who was puppetting who. And as we know the things that come from one place that are lauded are often copied elsewherre. We know that Saudi didn't invent the purge, but they sure have given us all food for speculation.
But what do I know? Nothing. If there are executions I'd prefer there also be trials. In the world of kings and international regime mongering, and funding of foreign operations, know this: they don't just go and target anyone for no reason. There is always a reason that these things happen. And it's never just arbitrary and it's not without a lot of forethought. So we can make up something. And most of us will. It will trouble us. We'll glom around The Net looking for frozen insight, something dated from before, when we didn't know, someone who might have been eyes open and wide and sucking in the stream of what is actually ahppening.
The narrative of 'corruption probe' is . . . lacking. People will write a Hamlet. to fill in the blanks. They'll cast politicians as failed Lady McBeth's. She'll be bubbling in toil and troubling (very troubling)
Ya, so explanations are scant. And now Twitter has upped the number of characters that they allow. Wow. So if it's dumb before, with twice as many characters is it twice as dumb?
Ya, if I don't know why am I going on with this?

Check out some karts, built with Blender and Open Source scripts at Game Sculpture. The page is one of my demonstration pages, with inserted images in that, and haven't taken too much time with it and it needs some tweaking.
Learning Blender and mesh-methods is a great hobby. It's a new enough field of artistic expressiong in which there is much new effort that will bare great fruit. A young person who studies meshes and textures also studies the tradions of graphic art. The concepts of these data point dances is an extension of finite mathematics, and the 'pop' that many culture critics might not have expected. The mundane of the trite math of the graph is the most interesting thing that gives us all our new breakthroughs. Break on through and learn how to count in meshes.
What does that mean? Count in Meshes? Because despite what you might want to understand about the infinity of the universe, and the every and constant hum of all creation, when you 'craft' a 'virtual' scene, and use a 'modeling tool' you need to add pieces. Each piece you add 'weights' the 'item' or 'object' in different ways. What is this thingt hat we actually have when we make such a model? How many teers does it have? Does it have a dossier? Do we have access to a file with information on this . . . node . . . yes they call it a node.
'Node'? That's not good enough. I want percision, you give me pudding. I can't screw anythign into your pudding explanation without a lot of very hard thought and a long time of try try again, and actuallu use this. So they filled it in. And over time they filled it in with a lot of dfferent things that it could be. And if it were that thing that it could be it would need some minimum set of aspect in order to , and here is a new and important word 'render' it as some presentation of that node-thing-collection of node-thing-collections. It's a node thing collectin of node thing collections. And then we push it through our render engine. OR we can see it as if through the 'lens' of our render. The render is the part that we add in that lets us 'have a copy' that we can use 'for viewing purposes' or 'in order to experience the node-thing-collection of node-thing-collections. OK?
I don't think that's too hard to understand. This is a draft, so if it leaves you cold, and you find mistakes, you aren't paying anything for this, so get overyourself if my causaul way of not editing things in the first draft bothers you then, there isn't anything you can do about it, so get over it.
Blender gives you a node-editing interface that has evolved over a long period. The concepts of 3D things goes back to antiquety in the form of sculputure and architecture. The specification of buildings, the percision of measurement, allow for some rather simple and yet remarkible artisan carpentor/builder buildings in which people dwell. You need a plan, a concept. You have the materials. You don't just get all yor forms and fittings and throw them in a big hole, stir it up like it's cake mix, and a house pops out of it. That is not how the real world works. Preceeding the expenditure of large efforts the crafting of a plan augments the chances of success so much that if there are real things that need to be done they always add in the part about the plan. And that way they can 'manage' the effort better. In 3D world building (game sculpture) you need such a plan. Otherwise you will craft beautifult things, and I don't want to discourage anyone from doing their own thing, but if you don't understand that the reason that they don't give you a copy and paste is becasuse they let you pull in the object from another file. This very important concept means that your node-collectoin-collection is larger than your save file. And if you really need to pull the file out of the project directory and use it somewhere else, the interface allows the data to be pulled into the save file, at which time it will exist in both places.
Only by actual doing will anyone become expert in the use of any tools. Only when you know what the tools are and what they are good for can you become proficient in their use, and develop, yourself, new ways to use these tools. Only by trying to craft your own racetrack will you start to comprehend the complexities of game sculpture. Even in a virtual world you have to make things that fit and work orelse you can't install them correctly. Methods of making complexity can have simple descriptive aspects that, when multiplied together, makes sculptures of great visual complexity. The use of dupliverts, for example, can multiple an object in most pleasant ways. Learning about these mulitpliers allows the sculptor to greatly reduce the final node count of the 'saved' node-collection-collections.
The system provides a node count for the selected object. A good habit is to always have that as part of your concern. There are tricks to multiplying the node count which are simple things to do, like smoothing. The system lets the objects have a 'material' property (one of the types of nodes) and this property might have what are called 'modifier' properties, which are essentially node multipliers, and smoothing algorithms, that give various effects, and the expansion into all of the nodes specified by the recipee of mulitplication used is called . . .
I want to say 'baking'. In any case, fun stuff!
Blender is awesome, Open Source, and well supported. Check it out!

Poem Shards Eulogy I met him in the fog of war after he was already dead his visage in videos speaking dread and how the public is mislead. If only I could have known you before you gave up the ghost to haunt the crossing ferry off to places unknown, an undiscovered . . . virtue. A new country! A new type of people who respect the things that work that ferry churning through the fogs and mists and dank smelling out-gassings of these many foul rethorics spewed plausible no one knows who is sure? Which shore does your ferry pull up to to let out the ghost, so the story goes, the one that gets told . . . better be one that people can hear when their kids are there outside the house at the top of the stair. She can't hear that story if he is but a ghost now she knew him he was her friend and told her how he had been destroyed, remorsed, fallowed, wasted, lost abandoned on the battlefield of soul blow up your fallacies, this war needs to be taken way down inside those dark-thought places where hate channels freely destroy the hate by sending it off to unthought rhyme unspoken words unkind unthought hate. We try not to think of it, what the plausible story can be he's off on that Platsburgh ferry a shroud of fog the mists and fowl outgassings must some how be endured one last time to say good bye, come back to me come back to me you friend now gone and lost never known all hopes of how to write this story . . . his story . . . if he had asked me . . . I'd start the book: "He faked his death to escape . . ." from Unipoems She asked " If you get across can you take this to the King of Nowhere and tell him, plead to him to think of her and the way that she needs him? but he won't come home so she goes out looking for him went down to The Flatiron Building asking anyone wrote a card mailed it home. I imagine her collapsed on a bench people shuffle through she feels the lonely loss why won't he come home? I imagine her. She wrote it like that on her card. But it was all for sympathy, just an expression of her drama and she felt lost because of it and didn't know how to proceed the tricks didn't work with him he'd gotten willful, run off with a different girl who doesn't go to church. Hear the steam whistle of an approaching ferry turning to make a smooth connect. Moving back from the railing and the ropes she notes the impatience of the people at the dock and how the other women really like to talk. the crowd rushes forward have your nickel ready she gets swept along now she is way out there in the ferry out past the jetty.

who da thought?thought is sequential the end of it is never flood on, river of wise neglect let the bough break let the wind blow removed the baby from that cradle long ago and took him somewhere safe. Thought is over rated when it's thought for being mean to be mean being mean what you mean when you are mean when you 'mean what you say'. Memory is overrated there is joy in the person even when they don't know who you are anymore they still love you they usually don't forget that they love you usually. It was cold that day he'd driven all the way there and plodded through the snow to face the sorrow of his loved-one who didn't remember him but thought him to be someone else as thwarted. Memory is overrated when it's hard hurt of past tragedy as if it happened yesterday from the long ago. Bill Perilli, writer of all of the things on this blog. 🌜🌜🌜🌝🌛🌛🌛
Fedora core 27 is coming out this week, and I jumped the gun and did the upgrade on two of my machines. I have to say it's been rather flawless. Cudos to Fedora for getting the dnf system-upgrade right this time.
I have a legacy system that's about a little more than 10 years old. I replaced it as my desktop box, but I decided to leave it as a server. It's got Nvidia, so that's been an ongoing issue over the years. But I got the blender bug, and I decided to upgrade to a dual head nvidia system so that I could render much faster (much much faster). My recommendation is that it is worth the money if you are graphically inclined, and that's a good reason to do it. One of the main purposes for doing this is to do VR, but the only VR I do is crafting in minetest. I do that as a hobby. I also like to make tuxkarts, for the game supertuxkart. It took some time to get more proficcient. I came up with some ways of doing it. It really comes down to, in blender, learning, learning, and learnig more. Blender is one of those realms where you couldn't possibly use it all or know it all about the product. It's too fast. And not only that, it's got boucoutte plug-ins (in python) so . . . it's a real big thing."
My oldest system, that will still boot, though I haven't done it in years, is a legacy Compaq 'notebook' computer, a big black brick of a thing, heavy and it was very cool (very very cool) when it was new. Years ago there was a 30 days of the dead and I loaded on 30 days of Grateful Dead songs and turned that machine into playbox. But, as it is in the real world, when would I ever have call to use the thing? If I set up a music server, why do I want to run a 20 year old machine with a ten year old operating system? But it's cool to have a working copy of FC10 (or whatever the version of fedora was in 2006 or so). I suppose I could try and yank the drive and load the latest just to see how it works. In lieu of getting a new music machine, I think that I should investigate what I already have. Even though some of the android from a few years back really are inadequate the way that they are, they do have a lot of good features that a non-hobbled operating system (I consider Android OS a hobbled version of Linux, Google built their house on usurping open source. I see no advantage to keeping and maintaining an Android system. If it is to be made into something useful it mostly needs to have a less commercial, and more real-time operating system. But I just haven't gotten to the part where I take the mistake purchase that I made of an android tablet, some years back, and have some old version of Android on it. I think I got a hobbled version of the OS. I wouldn't be so derisive of it if it were actually a reasonible operating system that let you upgrade to a new version, like you can with Fedora and linux.
I have an old phone that I could convert to a linux. I haven't tried to do it. I guess it's doible, as long as the thing is 'unlocked'. But . . . instead . . . I would rather work with a newer system.
