Hello World


I've been fiddling around with a few experimental ideas, this week, including generating pseudo mod files in the browser.
Really wasn't expecting that to work, but.. There you go!
Browsers are really quite powerful buggers, now, aren't they!?

I wonder what else I can make in a browser?
I mean, seriously, the past couple of weeks I've generated videos and almost made mod files. A music editor tool should probably be next, so I can make mini melody things for the new JMTrackr, and then maybe get the tool to export real .xm mod files, afterwards.. ?! That would certainly seem to be the obvious path, from here.

It's amazing how many little tools I've now made using either php or javascript, which I previously would've made using Blitz3D/Max. All those little scripts lying around my hard drive are now transformed into a whole new methodology.
Times they are a-changing..

As we emerge from the horrors of 2020, we start to see light at the end of the.. .. oh, fuck!!!..

Covid continues. Lockdown continues.
Everything is pretty much the same as it was, early last year. Except worse. Because the government are idiots.

Meanwhile, America looks like they're pretty much ready for a civil war, spurred on by the least civil president in American history.
Oh joy..

Stay safe, everyone.

Artificial Artist

The guys at OpenAI.com have created a tool that accepts a descriptive bit of text, then generates images.
But, not like we're used to seeing being generated.
These are staggeringly impressive results.
