:iconchaoticafractals: :icongfxcoders:
Last night we learnt that our dear friend in fractals, Light Ska Iktomi, has passed away: Devious Journal Entry

She was the sweetest, kindest person you could hope to meet online, and really held the Aposhack community together for many years. Those years were some of the best in my life, mostly because of the fractal scene, and she was so so dear to many of us... I genuinely weep for her passing, she was a great one :(

Some more sad news unfortunately, is that I have left my job at Glare Technologies after 9 years. When I joined Glare, I handed over the rights to Chaotica (... it's that old), and they will continue to own it; I've personally never received money from Chaotica besides my normal salary. I'm still in discussions about how to possibly continue developing it, but for now its future seems quite uncertain :hmm:

Everything sucks :|

i'm a graphics programmer, aspiring artist, electronica fan, post-humanist and naturalist, player of go and appreciator of mathematics and algorithms.

i work on indigo renderer and chaotica at glare technologies in leipzig, germany and previously contributed to lux render. my first job was at lionhead studios on black & white 2, followed by short stints in vfx coding, and design.

all the images in my gallery were rendered with various programs i've written over the years, without the use of direct3d / opengl / photoshop / etc unless mentioned.

10 years ago the spams was prospered , and almost all users received 30 spams per day via mail, and many spyweres made setting on computers against wishes, and attacked servers.
Just MICROSOFT's servers was been attacked by unknown authors and by trojans 10 years ago.
message to Lyc and to Aexion:

I found new hint about how to been attacked Aexion's servers.
8 years ago, I hadn't antivirus, and my computer was been infected with trojan spywere whick may attack other server that to seem that I attacks servers. That's Al was believed that I would been hackers, and reported me to Aexion, else he would been right.
Now I having NORTON antivirus, so I won't attack neither servers, and won't modify neither file on servers.

Else I so sorry of Al and Aexion that I wrote several offenses and complaints
I felt offensed for fake accusation.
