Just wanted to share a quick screenshot of the full Ormr interface - it's miles ahead of what it was when we were showing it last time. :)

I know I've been quiet for a while, but not for the lack of new things I'm working on. :) Today I can finally share my most promising project so far. I'm running my very own Kickstarter campaign for a brand-new, procedural image editor that allows artists to go back to any action you've done in the past, tweak it, and instantly get a new result in real time, without redoing any subsequent work. If you want to help, please back it and/or spread the word about it. Let's shuffle the graphics design industry together a little! :) http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/928340467/ormr-the-smart-image-editor

Now we're talking. No more failing DNS lookups, long ping times, throttling, ridiculous monthly caps, and failing connections when torrenting. Did I mention this is officially a 15Mb/s plan? I think I'm in love with Teksavvy now. The difference is unbelievable. Goodbye, Bell.

You'll have those 32mbps just for initial ~30 seconds of a http connection session, after that it should drop to your 15mbps. And you'll still have some rogers issues, as Teksaavvy is just a reseller. But overall - it's better.

That reminded me of 2 things I tripped over two weeks ago while looking for an old EngSci professor I had in university. You really have to go to UofT EngSci to get some of this:

DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! Don't fall for the positive reviews - read below for why. SHORT VERSION: You should know that we were satisfied customers for our set of lessons preparing for G2 test (we took almost double the ministry-recommended amount). We passed the test and were happy with the school. Then, we decided to come back for highway driving lessons. Big mistake. This school is only good if you don't run into any issues and take exactly what you're given - but if you would like anything changed, they will blatantly lie to your face, deny they did anything wrong and refuse any, even simple, requests. They will then slap an exorbitant refund fee if you want some of your unused money back. You'll find out what "the worst customer service ever" means very quickly. EXTENDED VERSION: When we came back after the G2 lessons, we wanted to learn how to drive on the highway, not necessarily just pass the G test. We made this explicitly clear during the first lesson - that we wanted as much time on the highway as possible. The first lesson went well - we were taken on the highway three times, for one block each time. The second lesson we again mentioned that we'd like as much time on the highway as possible - this time were taken on the highway just twice, again just for one block. Basically, merge onto the highway, change a lane, change back, and exit. This was a bit underwhelming, since very little time was actually spent driving on the highway. We realized that this is something that's not going to teach anyone to actually drive on the highway, and wanted the next lesson to consist of driving for most of the time to a destination that is further away, and then coming back. We mentioned this again to the instructor, and he agreed. What happened next, however, was very different - he chose a route *away* from any nearby highway ramps, then got stuck in traffic on a street that is known to have heavy traffic even during the beginning of the rush hour (3pm); then, when we eventually made our way to the highway on-ramp, we just went to the border of Mississauga and back, spending about ten minutes total (!) on the highway, and that was it. At this point, we were fairly disappointed, since we have explicitly asked for time on the highway three times, and have instead been spending most of the time and money driving around the streets. We called the school owner, and attempted to first describe the situation, and second, find a solution that works for both the school and us. During the entire conversation, however, the owner have denied that anything was amiss, denied any requests for changes, blatantly lied to our face, and did not attempt anything to actually solve the issue. Among the lies were: - That the instructor took us on the highway 9 times in three lessons (when it was, in fact, just 6) - That they got stuck in traffic because there was a serious accident (we neither saw one nor did Google or any other road services report anything) - That we couldn't have spent just 10 minutes on the highway because it takes 10 minutes with no traffic just to get from Mavis & 403 to Winston Churchill & 403 (which takes 4-5 minutes one way; we also timed the time on the highway, and it was 10-11 minutes total, and the traffic was indeed flowing freely) - That the instructor couldn't have chosen a different route because he can't check the traffic before the lesson (come on, really? It takes 30 seconds to glance at a phone with Google Maps on it) - They refused our request to change to our previous instructor - They refused our request to change to *any* instructor with back-to-back lessons At this point, they basically said they will refund the remaining two lessons with a refund fee of $40 (!). We initially paid $150 for five lessons out of which we actually had taken three ($90 worth). Instead of refunding $60, they would only refund $20. When we mentioned this isn't fair, they started to deny everything again and eventually hang up on us.
