Feb 07.2018 - Episode Guide Updates

BM1.0 Icon My Computer.gif Very quick update message. We're down to 40 or so characters to import from the old website and all of the episode material has been pulled in as of last night. You can get to the Ep Guide by dropping down Guides menu at the top and selecting Episode Guide.
When you're there, be sure to look for any entry with a on them, there is a deeper review or re-telling. We're happy to have the Dan Fiorella re-tellings in place (The Ax, Boomtown, and Space Moby) along with the original BM1.0 screenshots.

Moving forward we have the Traash submission is the first "new" epguide entry and it has all new BM3.0 screenshots, plus we may have lined up a review or two from a guest that we located on the Internet and we'll be sure to post those up in the upcoming weeks.

This is a 21 frame stitch to make this shot. In the series the machines, scenery, and panning shots always worked well together.

Jan 28.2018 - Blender, Series 6 Podcast Ep 10, Updates


Blender

BM1.0 Icon Goose.gif I went down a rabbit hole last week when I couldn't sleep and I started playing with Blender3D. The first time out took me a long time to get a 3D render of the GR badge and the second time took me much less time (14 hours vs 1-2 hours). I still have a long ways to go to get to the end with a need to learn texturing and coloring. Not to mention I need to find a font (a friend of the show ("mt") has been assisting in that area).

Series staff member David Rosler has been very supportive of this work, offering some tips here and there. If I can get a decent model, I'm hoping to print one in 3D. Below are my second attempt and the reference image, while here is the Twitter conversation around the first image.



Series 6 Podcast

BM1.0 Icon My Computer.gif The guys over at Series 6 Podcast published their tenth episode. This time they reviewed the Christopher Rowley episde Traash and RD_Blade was kind enough to submit the guest review for our Episode Guide (thanks RD!)

Makes you wonder if spaceships have insurance and how much the deductibles are.



Updates

BM1.0 Icon RecycleEmpty.gif Plodding along with the site conversion. We're starting to categorize the fanfic character appearances (Thank you Helper #1!) and that's causing the Bio pages to start populating with the appropriate links to get you to the fanfic that stars the character you are looking at. Also, character names (A-Z) are starting to populate as more characters are added and updated. Finally, as a tease, I found that I had a scan of the following which I'll upload to the site (35 pages) in the future:

Jan 11.2018 - fatima updates About, AKK site update, David Rosler, Updates

About The Series

BM1.0 Icon My Computer.gif Back in March 2001, fatima submitted an "About the Series" article that really took a good look at the different aspects of the show. The article covers everything from the creators, to the run of the show, the unfortunate reason behind the lack of a second season, and the fans (You!). We were very happy to receive an update to the article this past week and it's now part of the Guides menu above. You can read the article here. Thank you very much fatima!

AKK Site Update

BM1.0 Icon Full.gif AKK has one of the longest running GR sites out there. How long you ask? We have the original announcement here in the news archives from back in 2000! AKK updated her website this past month and we have to say it is looking pretty snazzy! Check out http://www.annkniggendorf.de.

David Rosler

BM1.0 Icon Normalcursor.gif David Rosler has some new videos up on his YouTube channel. I have some listening to do this weekend as I see what looks like to be some discussions about his Orbiter movie project. I also see a Filmaking 101 for Experts video as well.

Website Updates

BM1.0 QBall Icon.gif News Archive imports are done up to Thursday 10-26-00
BM1.0 Icon Goose.gif Working through the "B" entries in the Character Guide area. Oddly enough, it was the old news posts that got me back on track for doing them in an order versus going all over the place.
BM1.0 Icon RecycleEmpty.gif Added Boomtown and The Ax (both Dan Fiorella submissions) to the site.
BM1.0 Icon RecycleEmpty.gif Other areas of interest that have been imported or updated.
BM1.0 Icon My Computer.gif Finally, I moved the webmaster note to the bottom of the main page and added a progress bar. There's still a lot of material to go through!
