First, have you tried ATi's newest drivers, under http://www.ati.com/support/drivers/mac/macos10-2-ATI-displays.html ? The Radeon Display utilities also allow for application-specific tweaking of the OpenGL driver, maybe changing a setting or two there could make things faster. Secondly, the speed h...

Still it's a good question. The software is free to use, the documentation is, so why not the graphics? Because graphic designers are a bunch of arrogant bastards and much more protective of their work than developers? ;o) SysAdm: Here in Austria (and maybe Europe?) there's a difference between a p...

"i realise that another compnay, product, software title could hapily use the Blender name (as long as it were not compeating with blender)" that's not entirely true, Blender can be considered a brand and one could argue that no software product in general could use the name "Blender". it really dep...

There's also the possibility of getting an USB NumPad (goes for some 50 Euro) which you could then have on the opposite side to your mouse. But if you don't user the numerical buttons for the layers a lot the "emulate NumPad" might be a better (and cheaper!) solution.

Regarding the Standard Apple keyboard & mouse, did they finally started shipping with 3 button mouse or are you still stuck getting a one button and than having to buy a 3 button mouse on the side? Martin Still 1 button. It has something to do with tech support or so I've heared. Apparently "averag...

From what I know Ton is working on a Mac now, most of the time (because of it's unix underpinnings). If we were to buy him a new machine, we could consider 1.8GHz PowerPC G5 160GB Serial ATA Combo (CD-RW/DVD-ROM) 1GB DDR400 SDRAM (PC3200) - 2x512 Mac OS X - U.S. English Accessory kit ATI Radeon 9600...

Well, I'd be interested! I'll likely arrive on Thursday and go back on Monday - are there any other options you would recommend? Maybe a cheap motel or so? I think my price range would end at some 75 euro a night (preferrably cheaper).

Ton: Certainly such a session would be nice :) Ascotan: Thanks for the very informative post! My point basically was that I do not think the patent system will (or should) allow to patent trivial stuff, for which the EU would need to employ specialists who will set the rules of what is allowed and w...

But this is what I was talking about, you need to use existing ideas to innovate!! And you cannot do it freely if software patents stop you. They're not stopping you. Like JWalton said, that's sensationalism - it's not like people will be able to patent 1 and 0. Yes, it's exactly that, you take ide...
