Long time, no see

Ok, so I know it's a long time since I wrote anything on this page. A lot of things has happened since...let's see, the Siggraph deadline in may! First of all, my sketch was rejected which is a bummer, however the other sketch we sent in, where my supervisor Nafees was the main author and I was listed as the second author, was accepted. This means that I will be going to Siggraph after all. Next week I'll hop on a Icelandic Air flight with Boston as it's destination.

Secondly I have finally graduated from Unviersity with a M.Sc degree. Not a day to late either. The rush was mainly due to fact that I needed to hurry up and get me degree before summer in order to apply for an visa to the US. As it turned out, I was too late and the visa cap for the next fiscal year (starts in October 2006) had already been reached. Thus no work in the US for me...

Siggraph deadline passed!

Phew, I'm all exhausted. The Siggraph deadline passed an hour ago, and we survived. We actually submitted two sketches in the end, one of which I'm listed as the main author. It seems that this will be yet another record year with up to 700 sketches. I think about 100 get accepted, so there is a slim chance that we'll get accepted.

Now I'm ready to take a nap...

Siggraph deadline approaches

The Siggraph 2006 sketch deadline approaches relentlessly which means that we need to accelerate our work at DD. I'm going in to work tomorrow to put the finishing touches on our renderer. The volumes are begining to look really cool, and hopefully we'll finish on time.

What's up Johan?

I know what your thinking. Why the hell doesn't he update his goddamn homepage? He promised he would. Okey, I haven't got a perticulary good reason, just that the work at DD has been very fun, challenging, and demanding. I've also tried to work on finishing the technical design of this page, but it's hard to find the energy and inspiration to write code when you get home from an exhausting day of coding at work.
Anyway, soon the worst pressure will be over, since the deadline for Siggraph sketches is on 12:th April, and I aspire to finish this page after that. I wish I had some images from m

The state of things

I had to degrade the "quality" of the page a little to make it compatible for Flash 7 player (don't wan't to let the linux people hanging), so a little of the bling bling has temporarily diappeared until I found a way to detect player version and load correct content.
What you can't see is the backend. Currently this site is relying on static xml documents for content, but I'm working on a SOAP backend. It's a little tricky to find time for working on it though. Hopefully this will be fixed soon

New page (again)

Ok, so this is the new version of cumulunimbus.se, all flashy and cool as you can see :-)
The change is because I could no longer connect my server at home with the domain, so I made the decision to buy space at a web hotel instead. On a tip from my friend Mattias i choose Oderland and it seems to be very nice.
Hopefully this page will contain some more functionality but that's all depends on the time available to waste and energy.
