I figured I should announce this one since people didn't care for the silence two weeks ago. Another addition to Stewards, just before last week's entry.
Media Comment: Just finished it. Now what should I watch?
No news post last week because I was busy updating the contents of the last update. It's now a decently polished product.
This week we get a somewhat lengthy addition to the second chapter of Stewards, near the end. Hope you like it!
Media Comment: SG Atlantis is a surprisingly fun show to rewatch. A lot of shows don't hold up the second time, but SGA does surprisingly well.
It's still very rough, but I'm working on a new little game. Check it out!
Media Comment: Love this soundtrack, it makes for good working music.
This week I got so wrapped up in tidying up site content that when I sat down to actually make the update I was totally out of time. Maybe I'll whip something up tomorrow that's cooler than links working right.
Edit: OK, here we go.
Media Comment: New season on Netflix!
Since I've been watching a lot of Star Trek recently, I've seen this effect a lot. It got me wondering if I could achieve a similar effect in less than a hundred lines of code. The answer is yes.
Media Comment: Season three is a hoot, you should be watching it!
Another two additions to Stewards, near the beginning. I'm working on trying to find a clever way of anchoring my sections that isn't restrictive, so you guys don't have to do so much hunting around.
Media Comment: Ah, what a grand old show. Loved the setting.
This update has to do with the Stewards story, but is a digital render. Still pretty young though, so don't get your hopes up too high.
Media Comment: KT and I are watching this series together. I forgot how funny Pete is.
I have no particular explaination for the missed update last week, I just got wrapped up in stuff. This week I've added a bit to the end of the first chapter of Stewards. Enjoy!
Media Comment: Second season is not what I expected. A lot darker than I'm used to Star Trek being.
Sorry about the missed/late updates, it's been busy around here. Last week I focused on improving site performance, cutting memory consumption by over half and generally cleaning up the code enormously. Unfortunately those changes are going to be invisible to 90% of you, so it wasn't worth mentioning.
This week we have a new section added to the Stewards story, right at the beginning of the chapter. I ended up delaying publishing it because I wasn't happy with my numbers. I'm no mathematician, but I do like consistency, so I ended up crunching a lot of really big numbers to figure out the max speed of the ship.
Media Comment: I'm catching episodes during my down-time as a way of relaxing. It's fun to see how they work within the Trekkie canon, introducing new details or fixing little things. I enjoy it pretty well, I'm just starting the second season.
3d update, this time using a healthy volume of Photoshop to make it look right.
Media Comment: Not really much to say about this one, it's an enjoyable enough show. It'd be a lot better if you didn't know who was going to survive and all that.
