The Weekly Gnuz & Lynx Roundup: 2014/03/16


tyson-nyeG’day, and happy Sunday. I sit here mysteriously unassailed by my cats, no kitty noses in my face, no paws silently inching their way across my keyboard, and nary the sight of furry bodies drapped loudly purring across the desk behind my laptop…

This last week marks the first rather halting attempt to make animations of my fractals, using Mandelbulber and iMovie. While I’m far from pleased with the result, it lays the groundwork of understanding to do it better next time. I know what settings will be needed to generate the still frames, and the settings in the editing software to make the frames into a video short, and so on. Once I get results that I hate less, I’ll post them on my YouTube channel. I’ve been waiting for a while to get to this point.

I’ve yet to name my series of blog posts dealing with the details of argumentation (not the rancorous and quarrelsome kind). I’m not going to call it ‘project reason’ as that’s already taken by Sam Harris, and ‘project argumentation’ just sounds lame.

I’m not including the weekly stats for this blog on this post anymore; That is now dealt with monthly on this blog’s newly updated page ‘About This Blog & Myself.‘ It also has my rules for blog comments, transparency with you, my readers, in any business dealings I may do on any of my blogs, including book and service reviews and product promotions. This blog I’ve yet to use for business: It’s mostly for fun, which is one reason I’ve bought off ads showing or getting revenues from it of my own.

I’ve compiled a list on Evernote on the URLs of my fiction installments posted on this blog, and I’ll post them all on their own page on this and other of my blogs.

This is sort of a spring break for me, so I’m officially off study, even though I’ll continue working on notes and study materials in my spare time, and catching up on blog projects, whatever names I’ll give them.

This week is a special tribute to some of the blogs I follow, and I include links to their posts here. Do check out their sites and enjoy their posts. They are to me, very cool, and very special people.

About Troythulu

I seek to learn through this site and others how to better my ability as a person and my skill at using my reason and understanding to best effect. I do fractal artwork as a hobby, and I'm working to develop it to professional levels, though I've a bit to go till I reach that degree of skill! This is a crazy world we're in, but maybe I can do a little, if only that, to make it a bit more sane than it otherwise would be.

    • With our cats, Gorgeous and Eccles are used to staying indoors, though Rocky does try to sneak out and we have to nudge him away from the door using our feet. He does not like that, but then he is more mellow about it than most cats.
