Mandelbrot Sets

I’ve generated a couple of Mandelbrot sets.

f(z) = f(z – 1)2 + c; f(0) = c and c is complex number (x + iy).

They’re pretty sweet looking! I used Perl and GD to generate PNG images. The images are rather huge so please be patient. If you have a dialup connection, be prepared to wait a very long time for some of the images.

A Lot

A lot has happened. As you might have noticed, vivin.net and vivin.com were both down for a while. That’s because Marc’s ISP decide to make the intelligent decision to change his static IP. That resulted in some problems. Marc finally fixed it. So here we are.

The Photo Album should be up probably next week… this week is hell. PHP has been compiled with gd support so it’s going to be a breeze.

421 is a lot of work. ARGH!!

I got half of my signing bonus from the Army. After taxes, I have $2,802. I’m not touching it. I’m putting it in savings. But it’s so awesome to have that much money!!

Went to Garba last night. It was awesome. A whole lot of fun. Didn’t do too much garba, but had the dandia going for well over an hour.

There are some other things I wanted to write, but I can’t remember them at the moment… I’ll write them later… Oh yeah! I bought a motherboard for the server I’m building. I only have the case, harddrive and RAM left to buy…

Your own code. Use IE.

I probably should document my code. It’s not cool coming back to it after three months and wondering what the hell you were smoking when you wrote it.

I managed to figure out (vaguely) how I got fly working. I know I did something weird to the makefiles. I think I had to link it explicitly or something. Anyway, I can add Photos properly now. All I need to do is finish the “Delete Photos” and “Update Photos” option. Then I can put up the photo album for real. I need to make a non IE5.5+ version too… so that other people can use the photo album at least. I wish everyone would use IE. Seriously. Alright, alright… now you’re probably thinking “What? You can’t say that! That’s an affront to nerds everywhere!”… Microsoft is Evil, but it sure as hell makes my coding a whole lot easier if everyone just stuck to IE. Then there’s .001% Mozilla crowd going. Oh Mozilla is SOOOOOO much better than IE and Microsoft is Evil and you’re a traitor! Yeah whatever. Makes my job SOOOOOO much easier. Stick to IE and while you’re at it, PLEASE upgrade to the latest version – i.e 6.0 (eh? eh? get the pun?) If you’re still using IE4.0, that was sooo 4 years ago! UPGRADE!

GD and FLY

I just installed GD so I’m on my way to creating a dynamic photo album. Marc has given me no promises about recompiling PHP with GD so I found an interpreter (fly) that should work with PHP. Nothing else… June 3rd is only two weeks away… I really don’t want to leave…
