Wallpapers

This is a wallpaper that I created sometime back. I think it was on Christmas Day 2003. This was created using a mix of photoshop and 3D max. An abstract design which looks pretty cool (at least to me).

This one was actually used for a competition where I got a $200 cash prize. Sorry about the funny aspect ratio, that was the requirement by the competition. This one depicts nanomachines (the metal objects) racing inside a blood vessel towards a valve (The semi circular thing in the middle). Again kind of abstract.

This one was also used in the same competition where this time I won a Canon G5  This image is about the SARS virus, plain and simple. Added the lines and text to give it a high tech kind of feel. The two images created for the competition were done solely on my Powermac (moving away from windows). The 3D stuff were done in Cinema 4D XL while the 2D work was done in Photoshop.

My setup

The image below shows a schematic diagram of my setup at home. Sorry about the ugly pic, will update it if I got time.

My ISP is Starhub which provides me with an internet connection via cable. The cable modem is connected to a broadband router which connects to all the machines via Ethernet.

My main workhorse is the Powermac. Its data is synchronized with my Powerbook so that I have my data on the go. The Athlon PC runs Windows XP and Gentoo Linux. Windows is basically there for me in the event that the software that I need requires Windows and for gaming purposes. I usually boot to Gentoo if I need to do any work.

My wife has a old Duron 850 which she is very happy with. That machine is out of bounds to me cos she says that I tend to screw up her machine.
