3D STREAM: Apathy for Distraction
by Barry Fox
I don't want to flog the dead horse of violence and videogames; nothing has been proven in that long-standing debate in either direction.

I think you could pay respect to those that have died by acknowledging that your work affects people and by examining how it does.

by Abby Albrecht

  • The Big Kahuna deadline has been pushed back due to September 11, 2001. If you have questions about money transfers from another country, I'm still working with accounts payable on how to handle it. Really.
  • Big Kahuna Prizes! Yup. Cool ones. The list will be available as soon as I get logos.
  • Wow, work. You may have noticed, things at 3Dgate have been slow. DV.com needed some help, and when the boss says "Go!" Well... I go. But I'm catching up now. The job board should be working, but email me when you submit an opening.


A handy addition is the Magic Ring widget that lets you modify properties of objects when you create them.
