  • On The Job Training

    Well, I still have one more Star Party to look forward too this “season”, and that’s the Winter Star Party. It’s a little later this year, coming the first week of March really. Good seeing in the Florida Keys usually, but this...
  • On The Road Again

    Getting ready to pack for Night Fall in Borrego Springs, CA. I'm giving two workshops on using TheSkyX and a morning (morning?!?! What ARE they thinking… it's a STAR PARTY!) talk on our move back to the Mac and iStuff plans. I've always...
  • Party Time!

    I believe the point of a blog is to update it more than once every six months for so... okay, REALLY, I'm going to try and do better. First of all... I think somewhere it says 'Seeker Developers Blog" or something like that. At least it used...
  • Observing Season is here!

    I just got back from my latest trip to Golden. I live and work in Florida, and work for Bisque remotely. Occasionally though, it is useful to pay a visit to the "home base" and do some planning, and just have a few meals together with everyone...
  • On Netbooks...

    I've been on the road a bit, and it's always great talking to customers, meeting other vendors, and of course doing some sight seeing along the way. Had a great weekend in Pasadena at the Pacific Astronomy and Telescope Show. Steve, Tom, and I...
  • Theater Suite News

    As I mentioned in my last blog, the next maintenance release of the Theater Suite is about ready to roll. It's not as simple as me just checking in source code, so don't expect it tomorrow, but it's coming soon. In this next release we have...
  • Seeker News and Snow Leopard Technologies

    Sometimes programming is a bit of a chore, sometimes it's just so much fun you don't want to go home at the end of the day. Lately that's how it's been with me. I've just finished up a maintenance release for the Theater Suite and...
  • Busy Bee

    Well, I have been one busy bee since I returned from the Winter Star Party. The next big event was NEAF, where I met one of my hero's (as well as 100's of thousands of other Astronomy Cast fans) of the astronomy podcast world, Pamela Gay (I'm...

  • Finding your Mojo

    It's probably about time I updated my blog. It may have been a year or so since my last post and I'm going to get back into the habit... promise! I just returned from the annual Winter Star Party. What a week! The weather was much better than...
  • Seeker and other Mac news

    Wow, I’m way overdue for a blog entry! I’ve been pretty busy lately and there’s a lot going on in the Bisque world, as well in some of my side projects. Since my last post, we have shipped TheSkyX for the Mac at MacWorld, and TheSkyX for Windows since...
  • New Products and MacWorld!

    I’m really starting to hate December. Of all the worst times of year to have a big expo, January has got to be the poorest choice you could make if you were trying to make people miserable on purpose. The basic problem is that everybody wants to have...
  • Leopard, Seeker update, and MacWorld or Bust!

    I’ve been running Leopard on at least one of my test machines for well over a year now. Each build has been give and take as Apple has honed in on the final release. One rather nasty rendering bug persisted until the very end, and finally turned out not...
  • Jury Duty and Sky & Telescope

    Today I have been called for jury duty, and as I write this, I wait in the jury selection room. I brought things to do, but it’s not like you can plumb the depths of... well just about anything with the uncertainty of having to jump up any minute and...
  • The Dome Commeth

    Seeker-Dome or Seeker-Pro (we haven’t quite decided what to call it yet) is coming soon. I’ve spent more time on dome rendering than I ever thought I would. Another case of… “yeah, that looks pretty easy…” – NOT. Steve of course didn’t have nearly as...
  • SigGraph Postmortem

    In short, SigGraph is the world’s biggest yearly computer graphics conference. The venue changes (but is usually Los Angeles), but his year it was in San Diego. I don’t go every year, but having just had the fourth edition of my OpenGL book released,...
