  • Well, I was going to suggest cropping the bit of blue sky off the top, and its reflection off the bottom, for two reasons. One is that my eye is drawn to the blue patch at the top, and the other is that making it all green makes the image even more unusual/interesting. On second thought, though, I'm not sure I want to lose the branch at the top, so these are now just thoughts with no conclusion.

    I must say though, that the greens look very nice, at least on my monitor, and green can be

    The plan is a pretty simple game that I am using to teach myself more aspects of blender game programming. It would be a good opportunity if your main goal is to learn certain aspects of blender in a collaborative way, sharing your strengths while getting help from others where you get stuck. Game elements will be added depending on what you want to learn.

    Having now purchased the new Nexus 7, I can first-hand observe the oft-reported deficiency of the Android platform compared to iOS: lack of high-quality apps.

    That applies to such essential (for me) apps like Mailbox, Toodledo, or office software packages. A typical situation on Android seems to be, that even if you manage to find a particular app whose quality satisfies you in iOS, the same app in Android will be of lower quality. This is the case of the Kindle app, for example. It is

He further argues that Lincoln's relationships with women were either invented by biographers (his lov
