Krita and the accidental painting.

It has been a long time since I checked out Krita. I Painted this in Krita 3.1.1 on Mac Yosemite, versions for Windows as well and of course Linux; all are free. The bird took about six hours, give or take, and the program was not shut down for two days. I had one lock […]

Gambas 3 TreeView and TabStrip Example Code

My top three Desktop Operating Systems for 2012

Mountain Lion is the cats meow. Now all my Macintosh devices are one! “We are Apple. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.” And, after a couple days in Windows 8 I have a feeling even the Borg would have lost interest in Microsoft all together, I certainly did, yet again… Anyway. As good as […]
