Blender 2.78 has bendy bones? That sounds pretty intriguing.

I'm going to have catch up with Blender soon!

Sadly, this seems pretty accurate lately.

Got a little start on this today. Just learning how to use the Blender UI API.
 
Started writing some code for integrating Blender with TACTIC -- just a UI mock-up, but it's giving me a better idea of how to set it up, and it's running code, which is always a good place to start.

I've decided to call the Add-On package "KitCAT".
As I described in a video last month (A Virtual Studio for Anansi Spaceworks), I've decided to adopt the TACTIC project management suite. This will require me to develop a Blender-TACTIC integration Add-On, and today I spent some time learning more about the Blender UI scripting API, ...

I've made significant progress on this over the last week. It's good to be moving again:

"This week, I have got the Rocket library loading and correctly displaying menus with localization. This involved a considerable amount of work to get character sets, fonts, and the internal representation for locales to work correctly. There's still quite a bit of polishing to do, but I think I've identified the trouble spots and worked around them."

Very much in agreement with the sentiment, though it's weird that they don't use the usual jargon. What they call "majority voting" is "first past the post" voting, and is primarily distinguished by the fact that you don't need a majority to win, but only a plurality.

What they call "majority judgement" is just one of several alternatives which ask voters to rank or rate the candidates. In fact, it's probably inferior to "instant runoff voting", which asks voters to rank the candidates, rather than rating them (it's superior, because it's a common problem with rating systems that voters will tend to the extremes for strategic reasons rather than voting honestly. Ranking requires them to make comparisons, allowing only one candidate at each rank.

It's getting very close to the wire for +Nikolai Mamashev's motion comic adaptation of +David Revoy's "Pepper and Carrot" free-licensed web comic. He's at 93% with less than a day left!

I really hope he makes it!

In my opinion, the artist here exhibits the perfect response to seeing their work used by someone they consider unsavory: to express contempt in their own responses to it, rather than attempting to use copyright law (or threats) to censor speech.
 
K.C. Green's "This is fine" comic is a great meme for political commentary — except when the GOP Twitter is using it.

They ruled the safe-harbor clause still applies, even when the laws are State rather than Federal.
 
This one is good news.

Introduction
I've been interested in space and technology from childhood and in art, writing, computer programming, movies, electronics, and animation for almost as long. 

I've worked as an astronomer, a software maintainer, tech support (never again!), and as a writer. I'm moving into film making (not entirely new -- I was a film student at one time) with a video project called "Lunatics".

Bragging rights
Wrote a book called "Achieving Impossible Things" about free software and free culture. Write a (semi-)regular column for Free Software Magazine. Married for 20+ years, 3 children, 2 cats.
