Some pictures from a hike I did last Sunday. Walked about 20km in the forest that surrounds my house. Love having this kind of nature just outside my doorstep.

Oh, facebook is down? Crazy that the news is covering that, there are more important things happening in the world today. And if it would not have been for the news I would not know at all, because I'm not on facebook.

Cool stuff, on , very cool that it works there. and one of very few game engines \ editors (if not the only one) that has info about how to compile it on openbsd in their documentation. Is also in openbsd as binary package ready to install.

Also did this render back then. The model of the woman was from a cd that came with a 3dsmax modelling book (quake related), the rest of the scene I made my self, rendered it with ‘finalrender’ plugin for 3dsmax. I do not know how long ago, but over 13 years ago.

I made this render 13 years ago, took FOREVER to render it on the CPU. I just found it while looking through some backup drives.

Tonight I've been spending time setting up openbsd , very easy to install with full disk encryption, got a nice lightweight desktop running (openbox + tint2), currently installing development tools and all the 'daily' stuff I need. I'll give it a serious try now.

Got some time for my computers tonight! Spending time once again with gentoo installation, still trying to get that full disk encryption going. I think I have it now, currently compiling the kernel, then grub, then I'll know.

My blender PBRT exporter scripts can now install from a zip through the addon panel, feels good to have that sorted. :) It shows up the way it should now. One step closer to first release!

Got @gentoo installed on my 'Lemote yeeloong' laptop, surprisingly easy to install. And it has a fully useable desktop straight away. has been successfully upgraded to the latest version of diaspora, I have also taken a full backup of the server.

I have written a small post on my website about my tinkering with during my recent Christmas vacation time -

Last hike in 2018. Walked here with my kids this morning. Next year I want to bring them with me up in the mountains and camp up there.

Got Marlyn and our kids out for a walk this morning. These images shows why I love doing that.

Took 2 days, but I got it done, gentoo with xfce4, just the way I like it.

Finally fixed a but I've been fighting for a day, now the roughness map exports as it should in my blender PBRT exporter. 'Matte' and 'glass' materials are now working with the new code. Now I have it all solved and can update the rest of the shader export code.

So, finally installing pure on my laptop. I have never done that before, usually I've been using one of those 'desktop ready' distro's, now I'm doing it all from the scratch.
Got it installed yesterday, booted up fine. Now I'm currently installing xfce4, it's a old laptop so it'll take a good while.
