Apophysis Image Rendering and MultithreadingThis article relates to the fractal program "Apophysis" (Apo), but may also be relevant to other image rendering programs.Apophysis Image Rendering and Multithreading9 years ago in Personal More Like This
In Apo, there is a setting in the OPTIONS menu where one can specify the number of rendering "threads" to use. This has a direct impact on the amount of rendering time an image takes to render. If set to OFF, the image will render as if it was using a single CPU. If set to 2 or 4, the image will render in much less time, because it has 2 or 4 CPU cores of which to take advantage.
People who have Intel CPUs, which have hyperthreading (such as some Pentium 4's), can set this option to 2 if they wish (DO NOT use higher than 2).
Don't know how to get an image in here, so here is the screenshot link showing this setting option. http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/46008841/?qo=1&q=by%3Azsteve+in%3Ascraps&qh=sort%3Atime
Hyperthreading (wanky marketing speak), basically means the CPU has "two threads" with which to perform its data processing (sort of like two C

Gonna get back to business/writing asap. There nothing much to tell this time besides my life has been a complete and happy mess (partying all week long). But it was worth it.
Anyway, a special mention this week to a contest held by the brillant group GetDailyDeviations , check it out:
Another special mention to a huge and crazy project going on, whose purpose is to feature unknown and worthy deviants, held by AlphaManifest.
Plum facts #11 : In my opinion, the best literary art is in the "undiscovered" section because there are mainly mainstream stuff or fanfics in the "what's hot" section. And each piece of art I'm featuring is an undiscovered one.

Core Membership - The TRUTH behind the priceCore Membership - The TRUTH behind the price3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Okay people I'm back with a revision of this journal:
I didn't mean to be swearing at the intro, I wasn't calm mean I first made this journal and want to sincerely apologize for those that took it way too seriously.
That rumor it would shut down wasn't real entirely, it isn't a rumor at all but it was a scared speculation. So don't believe it and don't call me out for that scared tactic. It wasn't meant to be that.
Anyways back to what at hand.
And the fact of why of this in the first place:
I get it. I understand the main reason is that dA never told us. I GET THAT. I never said dA was 100% innocent , only the fact that I care about this site and don't want it die and maybe shut down. The thinkers behind the updates, the Admins, I agree we don't have a good relationship with them and they have been known to be quiet and aggressive like that one time an user wanted to get an answer for a question regarding som

After long time, somehow demotivated. Sorry.Hi pals,After long time, somehow demotivated. Sorry.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
it is me, Woxys do you still remember me?
It has been months since I’ve posted my last journal.
I apologize for my inactivity.
The first reason is that I have a job and that means I am usually tired in the evening, so I do not have mood or even energy to edit photos and to prepare long journals.
The second reason is… sorry, I will be pretty honest and do not get angry, please. I think everybody’s noticed dA has changed the system. Now it is much more difficult to get some attention. I think original idea was to give a chance to less know deviants but as a result, people I know are not active at all – in the past, they were happy when they got to front page time to time, reaching some 300-600 faves few times a year. New system gives them 30 faves even for really beautiful shots.
Year or so ago, when I posted a photo of a cute animal, I could have 100 faves in first 15 minutes.
Now it happens that when I post a photo of some baby animal, I have 3 view

The Shape of Things to ComeYou want change on DeviantArt. Everyone here has something they would change. We do listen and, yes, we can’t get everything done. Still, as a community, with any change we change together because we are all here together.The Shape of Things to Come1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
We found major talent to join the DeviantArt team this year to help us assume responsibility for major change and deliver on it. In return, we will be calling on the whole community to exercise its responsibility of continuing to shape DeviantArt into the place where the global undercurrent of creativity feeds the future of popular culture.
DeviantArt is as binary as it is digital in its platform. We serve equally those who produce art as those who need to see art and engage with it. Creating the undercurrent is a function of tools as much as it is a function of community activity. Getting these two to work in unison has always been the secret sauce of DeviantArt – and every recipe for the sauce begins
My deviantART StoryMy deviantART Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I fell in love with deviantART from the moment I was drawn to it. It's light, life, mystery and magic.
I spent days, weeks, months, years wandering and being mystified, amazed and entirely in love with all that surrounded me.
It was the community of people that kept me excited, kept me inspired, kept me aspiring to be someone better than I was. Even in the darkest times, the community has helped keep the lanterns lit.
I've been taken to amazing places, worlds, lives because of the family I've grown with on deviantART and every thing that's been shared with me and everything I've been able to share with you. It's been a journey.
And here, today, I'm still as captivated as I was when we first met.
Happy 14th <3

My site: patrykolejniczak.com is up.
I have only been able to upload a small fraction of images so far. Have no worries, I will be posting images gradually once I find a time to do so . The site itself will be more user-friendly as well in time.
Also I will be much more active on twitter than deviant, so if you are interested you can follow me there.
Thanks for stopping by.
