Float Overblow is working with an AI known as MidJourney. And asked me if we wanted anything rendered out of it. Generally, it’s better to describe a paragraph of a scene that you want MidJourney to draw for you. But I gave it a simple statement similar to how you work with DALL-E.
To some that have been reading for a while now you may be thinking that I’m going to introduce something new or revolutionary that will change the landscape of website design. When the truth is. This is actually an old standard that’s been around but should have been implemented a long time ago. It’s just for security reasons WordPress blocks this format by default.
So, we’re going to unblock it on our site and use it. To those who have visited my front page and/or art section chances are a vector has been uploaded and presented to you on your browser like the icon on the right.

4 years sitting in a desk drawer and now my Pine64 is back online.
A long time ago we did a review of a Kickstarter project known as the “Pine64.” It was a $15 dollar arm processor board that came out after the Pi 2 in 2015. We were not one of the super-early backers and thus we got a 2016 board just like everyone else. When we did the review it wasn’t overly favorable because during that era everyone was trying to “Kickstarter” their project but no one really had good foresight as to how to handle their product AFTER it was “kickstart’ ed” for lack of a better word. We had hopes that in due time the OS would get more stable and these Pi’s that carry the Mali400 GPU chip-sets would get useful again. So did it? Quick answer – Yes and No. Read on and if you want to know more.
Interesting style time! I wanted to see how my character looked in another artists style. So, I turned to the Mastodon network. Found a furry artist through the federated network that was looking to do some commission work and I took up her offer. IrresponibleFun@Mastodon A.K.A Kansyr@twitter and Kansyr@Furaffinity did an awesome job. Thank … Read more
Teletext is REAL! Even in the future-past of 20A7!
There are better sites out there that would give you an accurate description of Teletext. Like I could link you the Wiki right here. We stumbled upon this form of art when doing research on InfoChammel which is Public/Private cable access gone completely insane (In a good way). But a short summary for those who don’t want to go clicking around is Teletext was a graphical and information standard developed in the UK during the 1970s as a means of delivering content and information over the air. It didn’t really take off in America due to too many fights over how the standard of Teletext should be displayed. Read on if you would like to know more.
A while back I did a quick article about PNG compression. Looking back on it. We have to admit that it was a rather weak and lackluster approach to compression. We could easily go back and amend our newest discoveries but the discussion of compression expands into multiple formats. So lets dive right into what’s going on with this site and probably every WordPress generated site in existence and why compression is all around good for you.
These sketches were done in the blue sketchbook during 2015. Although some of them were revisited for inking with a Sumi-E pen. a lot of these were sketches out in 2016 this is still what we consider the 2015 book.
