Re-Take the Animation

Usually we use this spot for updating about the general site activity and updates. this time though there is a project that has come to my attention through Eric Blair I’d like to post up here.

A group of folk have decided to take fan-based work up a notch. Zeak Studios is producing an entire animation series based on the Re-take Evangelion dojinshi (sp). this is definatly something I hae never heard of in fan based art work of any kind and marks a nice little event in my opinion. and will have links posted to his site and hopfully he’ll have his first video out by May 23.

We’ll be supporting this project as best we can. They could use some voice actors, especially females. so if you want to aid these guys head over to his site and take a look. Also the associated youtube page is here.

We wish him good luck in his endevor.

Distributed Computing

Long time to see,

Decided to reinstall the [email protected] project on my home system. Fact is that this was the first project in what became to be known as Distributed computing. THe idea is that by sharing the load with many computers at regular peoples homes they can do more and get more done then just with their super computers alone. And they are right. Since [email protected] started, Berkley took their original idea and created a frame work any other project could take advantage of. Boinc is a frame work that allows many projects to utilize the dead cycles of your proc when you aren’t doing anything except say… posting to your blog. Writing a fanfiction or novel.

Wasting power while you are at work.

[email protected] can be found here. BOINC can be found here.

There are many projects using this software, so if you aren’t as interested in Aliens you can find one for your interests rather easily.
