GSoC, WordPress and ME!

So I have been accepted onto GSoC for another year!

This year I am working on a Bugtracker, using WordPress as a base, probably working on top of WordPress 3, need to discuss this with my mentor, but I’ve not been well the last couple of days, which was hell for the Station Manager Presentations (well done to @RichLegate btw), and thus I didn’t go to Plasa, tho I am feeling better now 🙂 Hurrah!

Handed in my coursework/dissertation this afternoon!

Now just a Motion Graphics video to finish, and a essay to write.

Not forgetting a dissertation presentation….. Fun

Motion Graphics Audio Sourcing

Just been doing a quick hunt for audio, whilst I finish my story board for my motion graphics project, and I’m going with some audio from 2001 A Space Odyssey.

First YouTube result, was interesting, since apart from containing the audio I was after, its a Adobe After Effects CS3 remake of the opening.

Comparing that to the original, its quite a faithful reproduction…

Anyway back to finishing my storyboard, but given that both of these is a minute long, or so, still need a further 2 minutes of audio….

Then again I might change the order of elements, since I am making a advert for firefox or chrome (I can’t remember which one I put in my brief, so should probably dig that out…. and check).

Anywho in other news, my other project is coming along nicely, the new games module for 360gaming [dot] net, now gathers data from Xbox.com and Wikipedia. All thru async. jQuery.

WIll be posting about that another time.

Long Time Since I blogged

Again, its been a while. Things have been pretty busy.

Currently I just fixed the LSRfm.com Podcasts, they were downloading a minute or two of audio the PHP was dying, FAST CGI php5 was being ghey.

So after a quick chat with Dreamhost over live chat, my script now rather than munch the file, just passes it off to a http location, less of a memory muncher too.

SRAchart is its usual self, tho we did get a full house of Charts last week, (well near enough), Ellie Goulding and Owl City are dominating, and Glee Started Charting too.

(Yes I am a Glee Fan)

Handed in the Motion Graphics Brief.

So Uni Wise I just need to sit down and code code code, both for Project 2 (ala 360gaming.net enhancements), and start planning and researching what I need for project 2.

And start writing an essay for Futures and Strategies, fun times.

I’ve not had any spare time to play Halo, tho the Reach Beta has been announced! Hurrah!

Now I must get back to coding stuff for LSRfm.com fixed the Jukebox, now to do the music db, tho I do have a nice IRC bot sat in the new LSRfm.com Chatbox

Also <3 jQuery....

Motion Graphics

Part of my degree is to create a 3-4 minute project, using Adobe After Effects.

So this is the first of many blog entries on the Subject. This blog (under this category) will form part of my project entry, (5% in fact), as a production journal.
So any comments will come in handy!

Currently I’m slightly add odds, but have a thought of creating a advert for Firefox or perhaps google chrome.

Ultimately using shape and colour manipulation to merge the relevant browser logos to create the chrome one.

Perhaps starting the 3-4 mins with a quick browser history, Netscape anyone??? 😛

Watched Transformers (the first Michael Bay one) today and having watched Start Trek XI by J.J. Abrams, should be good inspiration for this project, in terms of technology.

Avatar might be a bit far…..
