Might be kind of lonely though :(

I'm trying out NordVPN. Easy to use. Advanced features if you want them. I seldom notice any slowness. Cheap enough if the 2 year deal is still available.

I want to go here again. It is open in October. Too long a drive for my old truck.

3D screaming occurs when learning Blender. The hot key for screaming is shift-alt-S*7-right mouse button.

Strange observatory mysterious closure It is a nice place to go for a break or hike in the area.

Signed up and got a deal.

UPDATE: Free of the bubble that ubiquitous profiling creates, I see "recommended" and "you might also like" suggestions that are more varied and so are more useful and interesting. That's right, without goolag style profiling I see more recommended videos, pages, products, or even ads that I might click than in their bubble. I also found that:
- My bank doesn't like me trying to log in "from" unusual locations
- I should pick US servers to check weather sites so I get the temp in Fahrenheit.
- One email address, through a third party, notifies me every time I check email "from" a new location. Security, good.
- I see ads in other-than-english languages, for "foreign" products, different way of advertising etc. that give an interesting view into other cultures

Playing with Blender's fire simulation. Steinie Brew's Red Fire beer. The only beer with fire.

I think I've had that. Jalapeno deep fried in beer batter.

Halloween hexed my FBX. I tried exporting a DAZ scene as FBX to Blender and the figure was distorted in spooky ways.

Dunno about FBX to Blender, but here is a video on a OBJ import from DAZ3d to Blender and sending objects back.

Well there is no documentation on the fbx format! In the long interview even the head of Blender admitted..they are getting a hard time with fbx...because..well go figure! Even Eon..vue suggests to rather use the collada format!

Thanks. I was trying to export/import with rigging and animation so obj won't do it. The FBX export had a bazillion options. I'll try collada or just stop playing with Daz to Blender transfer with rigging and animation since it is unlikely I'll need it.
