Now that the Nehe Winamp Plugin results have finially been posted. I’m going to try and motivate some Nehe followers to get interested in a Firefox Plugin contest.
The technical aspects appear to be already worked out. And Firefox has really good documentation. The contest would be to run OpenGL code from within a Firefox plugin. The “Windowless” demo from the Gecko Plugin SDK uses Win32 calls to draw, so it shouldn’t hard to get OpenGL to work.
Just need to put this in here:
Piece of cake:
It was a nice day to relax: (TicToc)
But then we were ambushed: (by Pellet Storm)
Ready for attack: (Adventurous)
How does bunny taste: (Tiggy)

Here is the definitive reason why I don’t like Rubarb. Not just because I don’t like the taste, but because as it grows it looks like slug bait!

The sludging epic continues… Looks like brains!
I was inspired by [this article] on the BBC that describes ant behavior:
I was thinking that it would be a neat project in the future to have a contest in which the purpose is to make an ant sized robot that can be integrated successfully into an ant colony. The robotic ant would have to be integrated into the colony for two weeks to be successful.
These are two excellent resources for making icons for the web or other applications!

The following [article] compares Intel Prescott vs AMD 64 to pretty good detail.
Today started off by snowing for Valentine’s Day.
Linae and I took a little morning trip into the yard and took a few pictures as we walked down to the stream. And then the hail started about 4:30. Click the “Read More” to see all the pictures…
Adventurous and Tiggy decided to follow us down, while TicToc decided to nap on the lawn mower bag:
It’s hard to believe that these two photos are only two hours apart.
Our fruitless apple tree at 2:30 PM:
And at 4:30 PM:
Oddly, it is 42 degrees outside and all the sudden it started hailing and snowing.
I use the Firefox for security reasons. According to the latest polls 25% of online users are using Firefox too. Microsoft is losing 1% of their IE market share to Firefox each month.
And now there’s a tool that makes using the browser immensely better than IE.
The [Web Developer Extension] for FireFox is now available.
It’s funny, google has indexed every [piece of artwork] I have every posted online.
Update (Google has since re-indexed and hence dropped my image cache).
A friend of mine just registered the domain name: spleensoft.com
I found myself wondering, what does the spleen do, which I found here: [What it does].
In simple terms:
The spleen is a bacterial college for your antibodies. All disease is studied there and memorized to produce better antibodies later.
Starting this month in December, three programming contests are about to arrive.
1. Winamp Plugin Contest at Nehe:
2. 72 Hour game programming contest at GDC:
3. Three Month Mini Contest at Nehe:
4. GIMP 2.2 Splash Screen Contest:
I was compelled to do a Winamp mini contest entry over at Nehe.

The TagCMA project has been taking up so much of my time that I’ve decided to give the collaborative model editor its own site.
Here’s a picture of my Toyota ’95 Pickup. About two weeks after buying it, a rock quary truck dropped a rock the size of a football in front of me on highway 522 (55 MPH == 110 MPH football sized rock) outside Monroe, effectively taking my Toyota logo with it. And seizing my hood shut. Luckily it stopped before it took out my radiator. Luckily no major damage to me!
Here are a few pictures from my parent’s green house during the late fall. Stuff is always blooming even when the temperature is dropping outside.

I just added the ability to load OpenGL textures in C#. So now I have a basic functional mockup that shows some of the features that I’ll be adding into this collaborative application.
