Greets. Pretty quiet the past couple of days. Been going oingo boingo at work trying to catch up. I finally did so I’m off for the next couple of days to lounge around in my underoos and program the day away (with the occasional frag in Unreal Tournament thrown in for good measure).

Found something interesting Sim fans around might like. A company called bioVirtual sells a product called 3DMeNow (I know, where do they come up with these names??). Anyways, it takes photographs and turns them into 3D models. Basically supply it a front and side view of someone and it’ll create a 3D model that can even be animated. Of course, getting this into The Sims will need some work but it’s possible. So if you’re looking to blast yourself (or someone else) into The Sims and don’t have the creative juices to do the skinning yourself, try this app out (man that sounds so much like a commercial for these guys). The product is cheap (based on what it can do) and only $49 but you can download a demo from here.

BTW if you hadn’t noticed, the blogback (comment) feature isn’t working very well. Either that or someone is getting cute with posting HTML or Javascript or something. In any case, I don’t have any control over it as it’s hosted at another site so just relax and go play with your Christmas tree or something. It’ll eventually work itself out.
