3D Flash Engine

::: illogicz.com > 3D Engine for Flash MX

Nice 3D Flash engine that allows custom worlds to come to life, utilizing the drawing features within Flash. Haven't used it for a project yet, but looks to have a nice set of classes that can take the drudgery out of 3D world presentation.

Guide for Linux Migration

IBM Redbooks | Linux Client Migration Cookbook A Practical Planning and Implementation Guide for Migrating to Desktop Linux

The goal of this IBM Redbook is to provide a technical planning reference for IT organizations large or small that are now considering a migration to Linux-based personal computers. For Linux, there is a tremendous amount of “how to” information available online that addresses specific and very technical operating system configuration issues, platform-specific installation methods, user interface customizations, etc. This book includes some technical “how to” as well, but the overall focus of the content in this book is to walk the reader through some of the important considerations and planning issues you could encounter during a migration project.

Digital Bubble Art

Liquid Sculpture

What do you get after you interface 100 gallons of high viscosity liquid, 249 electrovalves, a compressor, and an iMac? Very cool, 3-D bubble art of course!

The artists quote could not be more appropriate: "Analog expression with Digital technology, Digital expression with Analog elements”
