Well, that's neat...

Discovered a world generator from donjon, and being the spherically accurate generator that it is, it outputs images that wrap around spheres.

Google likes images that wrap around spheres because they're the right dimensions for Photospheres, which is an auto-awesome feature, meaning you don't have to take a Photosphere in order to see one.

So what I have now is the exterior of a fantasy world projected into the interior of a virtual world, and of course it still works inside and out (star charts can be put on spheres, the Earth can be viewed from inside a sphere, it still works).

Pretty rare that it happens (I've messed around with a few maps like this, only one has been Photosphered so far), but interesting to play around with - I can see, for example, the size of these land masses in more accuracy, without having to remember to squish the image this way or that in my mind.

Limited application at the minute, but nice to see.

FIFA 15 will never get old

It will. It will get old. But I'm going to get the most out of my wonky animations while I can.

Shaun in the City

What is it like to follow someone (like a sheep...) on the hunt for 50 Shaun statues scattered across London? Something like this album, I'd imagine.

We did visit all 50, but like a right idiot I forgot to snap photos for two of them, so here are 48 sheep (some harder to spot than others), with approximate locations (hopefully).

All of a sudden, I'm actually watching the adverts on YouTube videos

I don't quite know what's happened. It's as though out of nowhere they are both better targeted and more interesting to watch, and so I watch them.

This from a man who used to run ad blocks damn near everywhere. Weird.
