FOSDEM

Last weekend I was at the FOSDEM (the Free and Open Source Software Developers European Meeting - the FOSDEM website appears not to explain the acronym?) conference in Brussels with rather a lot (42!) of work colleagues.

I went to lots of talks, enjoyed the atmosphere, ate waffles, beer and had good meals in various Brussels eateries. I hope a report will appear here as an expansion of the summary I wrote on the company wiki!

I was there last year as well but a report doesn't appear to have reached this blog, maybe if I do that other entry that'll make up for the omission?

Water surface and terragen


A recent terragen render - this took a couple of days to complete. I'm still on terragen 3 and intending an upgrade when I can get around to adding some extra memory to the desktop! Maybe it needs a few more textures that rock is a little too uniform?
Terragen is a Windows application but it runs happily under Wine.
