Computer Graphics: Principles and Practice

I am now the proud owner of this book!
A very nice book, hardcover, 1200 pages, and of course a great, if not the reference book for computer graphics.
Charl has got his version signed by Jim Foley himself, the last time he visited our group. Maybe he’ll come back some time to sign mine… 🙂
Anyway, I got the book for a mere £ 39.99, or approx. 57 Euros!
Ok, I had to go to London to pick it up, by I was planning to go there anyway…

There and back again (twice)

The Hobbit

I’m off for the weekend, leaving for London on Friday morning.
I’m going to visit my brother and sister-in-law, whom I haven’t seen since their wedding. And I still haven’t seen the photos I made that day.

The Two Towers

I’ve been to London between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
Went to see the apartment of my brother and his fiancée. They’ve lived in that apartment for about a year or so, but I hadn’t even been there yet!

We went to see The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers. Great movie! Well, at least for my part!
However, my future sister-in-law would’ve walked away if it hadn’t been for us. She didn’t dare to watch the massive fight scenes with all the horrid creatures like Orcs and Uruk-hai. Afterwards she kept saying she couldn’t believe the movie was for 12 years and older…
But, as I said, I thought it was a great movie… Looking forward to part three!
