I'm feeling a bit under the weather the last couple days, but on the other hand I have Monday and Tuesday off, so that always helps out!
So I've been keeping myself entertained recently by learning Lightwave, a 3d graphics application. Tons and tons of fun... (This is the exact same app. used for the special effects in TV series like Babylon 5, the later Star Treks, the new movie Serenity that just came out, etc..) I'm using the book 'Inside Lightwave 8' as a guide. It's not perfect, but still very good.
