Happy Ninth!


'Three weeks ago, the cattle had just been turned out to enjoy the fresh grass, when something went terribly wrong.
"When our trainer first heard the bellowing, he thought our pregnant heifer may be having a calf or something," said Abel. "But when he got down here, virtually all of the steers and heifers were on the ground. Some were already dead, and the others were already in convulsions."
Within hours, 15 of the 18 cattle were dead.
"That was very traumatic to see, because there was nothing you could do, obviously, they were dying," said Abel.
Preliminary tests revealed the Tifton 85 grass, which has been here for years, had suddenly started producing cyanide gas, poisoning the cattle.'

correction: As pointed out by Candide, Tifton 85 is NOT a GM grass, however GM stuffs are still evil.

Just having a peek at Cory's very beta Facebook virtual world named Cloud Party.
It has a lot up and running already, but at this time the aesthetics make me cringe. I'm sure that will change - very early days yet. It uses a cell phone look to anchor visitors quickly and give them something they are familiar with as an access point to everything. Floating islands (reminds me of There a bit, and a few other VRs) are as close as a click, and the reward for completing the tutorials is a modern house. Building using prims is a big part, as well as mesh. Scripting, physics, and so on. Not sure how a noobie would fare as I'm so familiar with VR, but I think quite well. It has been easy so far for me, but then... I did somehow shrink my window and relogged to fix it; after that I was a cloud.


I'm feeling pretty good today. Yippee!

This was good.

I'm having a difficult time, but my specimen results came back and were ok, and the excessive activity had slowed down (coz Frank made it be so), so all good on that front... er back.

A Lars von Trier film, Melancholia deals with the fly-by appearance of a new planet.

Candide gave me the link to this most excellent 'O Fortuna Misheard Lyrics' animation. Made me laugh A LOT.


I made a thread in Glitch Forum's Ideas requesting an upgraded axe I called 'Class Axe' - and yesterday it came to be! w00t! Silly thing to w00t about, yes, but still!

Trying to find a substitute for Mac's Remove White, which might be Kill White used in Pixel Bender, but having difficulty making it show up. Meanwhile here's Enj 'n' Os à la  Pixel Bender Oilpaint.


Reminds me of when I was married and one day tried to sew a bikini out of camellias to wear greeting my husband; ran out of time but was fun.

Mobile tactile tech gets physical

Tactus Technology is showcasing its next-gen mobile tactile tech at SID Display Week 2012 in Boston.

Essentially, Tactus has created a Tactile Layer component that  generates a haptic user interface (UI) with real physical buttons, guidelines, and shapes which rise out of the surface from any touchscreen.

Mobile tactile tech gets physical
A Tactus spokesperson told TG Dailythat its layer panel is the "world’s first" deformable tactile surface capable of creating dynamic physical buttons that users can actually see and feel in advance of entering data into the device. 

So how does it work?
Well, Tactus uses microfluidic technology to create physical buttons that rise from the touchscreen to give users the experience or feeling of operating a physical keyboard. When no longer needed, the buttons recede back into the touchscreen, leaving no trace of their presence.



It's 13 degrees C, 55 degrees F.

I'm freezing.

BTW don't forget about Venus if you are interested.


The Chandra X-Ray Observatory announced that’s it has observed something unprcedented: a supermassive black hole being ejected from its own galaxy at speeds of millions of miles per hour. The evidence suggests that the ejection was caused when the black hole collided with the supermassive black hole of another galaxy, producing an immense recoil force.

Black holes! Does that mean one alternate reality is on the loose?

Candide found this and sent me the link :-D

I want to keep everyone updated here and on my own blog at
For those of you who don’t know I have had MS for 16 years and have been in a wheelchair for 10 of those years with no sensation or motor function below my waist. On the week of March 27, 2012 I had both liberation therapy and multiple stem cell transplants at CCSVI Clinic. My first blog on this site was on May 22, just a little over a week ago. I wasn’t going to blog again until I had a video to show everyone, but I felt the need to share my personal thoughts here goes. 

These are fab photograhs:

ISM) -- Our universe may exist inside a black hole. This may sound strange, but it could actually be the best explanation of how the universe began, and what we observe today. It's a theory that has been explored over the past few decades by a small group of physicists including myself.

I want to ask for thoughts about improving the world -- what do people need? How can things be organised?
