Just got back from Town, I have bought a ring! and I checked out Apples Cinema Displays, got my eye on a 23" still, but I am definitely waiting for Apple to bring out new models first.
STILL rendering the final, It's going a lot slower than It should and I keep running out of disk space!
WWDC is coming soon (2 Days 18 hours 52 minutes) My predictions are:
Announce and hopefully release new 64bit Mac Tower with new case, most likely a derivation of the current case minus grill, id say it would be smaller but you can't release a new killer comp and have it same design but smaller, if It's smaller it will have to be a different form entirely. Who knows maybe Apple will even go back to the G4 Cube design now the chips run cooler.
No iPod related stuff, this is WWDC man!
New to OS 10.5:
iChat 4 with VOIP and better video support .mac only
Spotlight 2 with keywords! and better tie ins with new Finder
Some kind of virtualisation probably like Fast User Switch, not like WINE or X11
Front Row 2
new File System, versioning/revision/history/rollback per file/folder
Rosetta like device for running Windows binaries without windows (such dangerous ground)
new Cinema Displays that suspend in the air via magical dust at 200dpi and have built in iSight and IR.
More work on engineering animation:
Nearly wrapped it up now. (I hope)
Ugh, working at 4 in the morning again, and still no final render, but it is going now.. slowly.
Ahahahha I have the hiccups really bad, I could DIE!
phew, my patented technique worked instantly. Quite simply, you put your life in your brains hands by holding a ton of water in your mouth so that if you did hiccup, you would probably die
:-)Wait a few seconds till you would normally hicupy, and nothing.. It's gone, tadda, or if your unlucky to have a genetic makeup unwise to hiccups, you'll be choking on a lung full of water, but it works for me everytime.
Worked on engineering animation again, added wheels and re-animated the camera:
I'm now sat here waiting for a preview render to finish with a massive headache, of course this wouldn't happen if I hadn't put it off all day today and yesterday.
I've finally received my Uni grades, I have done better than I'd expected this year and ended up with a Second Class Honours Division One, which is the best you can get without kissing ass all day and night.
