I started this blog as an exercise in recording my own thoughts, research and creative activity – as well as learning more about the WordPress publishing platform.
Early on it was pretty much a solely personal exercise… but as I’ve tweaked the site layout, added Search Engine Optimisation, generated a few trackbacks from busier blogs etc. I’ve been noticing a steady increase in visitors.
My posts generally don’t have ‘Allow Comments’ enabled – so I thought I’d open a sticky ‘Comments Welcome!’ post that did. So if… :
I set out to jailbreak my iPhone with a list of possible gains…
I can’t say it’s been a wholly pain-free experience… I managed to ‘brick’ my iPhone several times and was forced to ‘restore’ loosing some data I hadn’t backed up – but hey – what did I expect? A few weeks on, I’ve regained a bit of device stability, gotten used to the new functionality and interaction and I’m happy I did it. Here’s how I’ve gotten on…
I’d been having some issues mixing the PeasyCam and Obsessive Camera Display (OCD) libraries in the same Processing sketch – which I’ve now sort of resolved and learned a thing or two in the process…
I found that switching between a PeasyCam and non-configured OCD viewport camera feed made PeasyCam behave idiosyncratically – loss of mouse control, some offsetting of Z-axis distance (only on the first switch back from an OCD feed – it’s consistent from then on), clipping of the scene – as if the
farClip setting in OCD has likwise adjusted it in PeasyCam – though clipping isn’t actually assignable within PeasyCam itself.
Turns out PeasyCam is now at v0.8.1 – I was running an older version – and the documentation now includes a number of methods I hadn’t noticed before.
