Blender's Transform Refactoring

Uhm, looks like our student association (at the U) being on strike has a good side, I was finally able to give a good push of bug squashing in the Transform refactoring.

Also, LOD from the french community was nice enough to do some video demos (the first one has some french audio commentary, the second one had text instructions), you can give them a download HERE and HERE.

This is starting to look more and more like a finished product (need some UI cleaning still, but it's getting there).

'til next time

Some random moron used a phpBB exploit to send a mass e-mail with a link to a virus to all the elysiun users on sunday.

Hopefully we caught that up in time, sent another mass e-mail to warn people and blocked the hole. Thankfully, he didn't do more damage then that.

Apparently, this was a new sort of virus (a user contacted an antivirus company about it). Not a very smart virii maker though, making code in VB (someone on IRC had lots of fun desassembling it, another one tried to run it in Wine which didn't do much...). Apparently the virus downloads an IRC proxy and spams a server or whatnot. Not that much important.

This pisses me off for two main reasons: That some people are still making virii (for any morons reading: j00 4r3 n07 1337!) and that the phpBB people could still have such a stupid hole in their code (missing type checking in the session handling code, no less).

Now, I better stop writing, I'm getting pissed just thinking about that (well, that an some school matters but that hardly interests you).

Signing off

Good day

I'll try not to be too formal, this is my first blog and I'll be putting some random thoughts here, whether it is about Blender, school, work or even (god forbid) personnal stuff.

So grab a popcorn and enjoy.


Here goes nothing...
