Of course, in reality you wouldn't see the stars anyway...

12' projector screen? Suddenly the 40" TV I've just bought seems rather puny (although at least I can still see that if I turn the lights on...)

This reminds me - if you are in Seattle, make sure you check out the SciFi Museum.

Among the nifty things there is a cool rear-projected display which is framed as if it's a viewport at an orbital station. Ships from various SF series - from Star Destroyers to the Planet Express ship - drift past.

It's a video that loops every 4 minutes or so, so it doesn't hold your attention for very long, but it's still fun to watch.

Having a video like Andrew's as a loop would be pretty cool.

Making a screensaver has crossed my mind...

I've got a touch of the Plague of Duskir at the moment, so I've been working on this rather than the things I should be doing. It's now 25 seconds long and has music...

It's gonna look sweet and I like that you've chosen Trilion (my baby). Did you ever notice that Trilion was a desert world? <picky picky pick pick>

Don't change a thing, I'll write the blue in somehow.
