Over 3 million customers [page views] served...

Luckily for me, the time zone that I am working in happens to be the time when something cool happens like 3 million page views!

Here is the steak:

3 million

...the sizzle:

 

...and the recipe [the team] that makes it happen.

Why {y} is Y up in 3D software?

620px-Coord_system_CA_0.svg

I used to support Maya back in the day and the orientation of the software is Y up.  For some of our other software packages, the orientation is Z up. During my morning coffee run, the conversation came up with with one of our Maya Developers [Julia P.] and she told me why and it totally makes sense....

If you are an Artist, the image will be on an easel, therefore, Y is up.

If you are an Engineer/Architect, you are working on a drafting table so Z is up.

Here are some screen captures of our software packages and their X,Y,Z orientation.

The dreaded Blue Screen Of Death & my second Webinar....

BSOD

Personally, I haven't had a lot of Blue Screen of Death [BSOD] on Windows.  In fact, it is a rarity on Windows if your system is protected with the latest Anti-Virus software, moderate UAC controls, and Malware removal software is used.

During my last Webinar, I actually had a BSOD during a presentation.  It reminded me of this live presentation with Bill Gates.

This was the first time a BSOD happened in any of our Webinars so it is something we will add to the Webinar process so that we can recover quickly.  For those who attended, I appreciate your understanding.
