Did someone say dino nuggets?

Did a shenanigans comic for Silly Season Shenanigans for a change partly because it’s been a while since I did a comic and mostly because this happened on Christmas Day. I really need to find out what’s going on with Linux Krita (unless the problem has been fixed in the system update/s that will probably be waiting for me when we get back to Perth), as exporting to jpg with MacOS Krita is working exactly as it’s supposed to.


13yo really hates spiders. Even microscopic ones. “Why do they have to move?” XD The spider in question in this case was a tiny little thing just visible to the naked eye that was crawling along the esky lid as we were getting ready to go to a barbeque.

Common confusion

Amusement while I was walking the dog. When you’re somewhat androgynous, this is a thing that happens frequently. I enjoy it way too much. Especially when there are small children who are too young to realise some questions are apparently “inappropriate” and flat out ask me “are you a boy or a girl?” and I’ll usually answer something along the lines of it either/or, doesn’t really bother me, depends on the day, or if I’m feeling particularly playful, tell them I’m undecided that day and maybe they could suggest something.

Scale issues

See what I have to put up with? See what my poor family have to put up with? XD I’m having scale issues in both senses of the word. For whatever reason, when importing a model from Blender, it’s microscopic in 3dC. What I did with Red was to just enlarge the model til it was big enough to work on, then send it back, where it was (strangely) way, way, way too big in Blender (I think he was close to 1km high before I resized him).

So my car got broken into the other day...

To avoid the incident happening I shouldn’t have stayed for adult gym, but then the kids wouldn’t have gotten the things they got. And I think the only reason we caught him to to begin with was because I was actually in a hurry to leave, usually we all stand around chitchatting for 5-10mins before scattering to the four winds. FAQ Why didn’t you knock the guy out/beat him up? I had every intention of disabling the guy and then calling the cops.

I want to see your horrendous mistake!

I had spent a decent amount of time regaling 10yo with hilarious episodes of my 3d experimentations revolving around the shenanigans that can happen when one doesn’t parent controllers properly or grabs bones instead of controllers by accident and stuff like that. Then to prove that parents don’t know everything I showed him that I was researching some way to use a complete dynatopo sculpt rather than finishing off the multires one I was working on.

Sprat does not share my scss enthusiasm

[reformatted the code during migration to make it slightly easier to read, this was a copy/paste from some text conversation and all formatting was lost] ryivhnn 6/04/12 10:23 PM hee hee other cool thing with sass, i do this: @mixin inline-block { display: inline-block; margin: 0 -2px; vertical-align: top; } and then when i need things inline-blocked etc (in a few places) i do: #container { .stuff-what-needs-inlining { @include inline-block; } } Darqx 6/04/12 10:24 PM i look at that and see what looks to be php mixed with css and want to run away screaming
