The Rights of Writers and of Audiences
     This topic has been on and off on my mind for a few years actually, but recent mainstream discourse has brought it once more to the fore-ground so I thought I’d share my opinions.    Now I’m not a Game of Thrones fan. At All. Not the HBO television series nor the books- I respect George R.R. Martin in terms of technical writing craft and attention to detail in world building, but I don’t care for his stories or characters. And due to the fact that a lot of others around me are and the way it’s constantly being talked about on social media, I don’t think I’m really missing out on anything--even witho

Platform Heights
It seems like some people actually like reading my long posts about weirder aspects of the german rail network, so here's another. What is the difference between these three trains? Well, there's lots of differences, starting with the color and then going on for a long time (I just realised that the white one has a different coupler. No idea why), but the one I'm interested in: In each of these Bombardier Talent DMUs, the middle low floor part is at a different height. The first train (class 643.0 of) has it at roughly 60 cm above rail top. The second (class 643.2 also of DB, with branding for the Euregiobahn network) has it at roughly 80 cm
GLLara 0.2.8
I've released a new version of GLLara, the XNALara-like program for Mac OS X, featuring a lot of bugfixes and a few minor new features. Get the full description and download here: http://cochrane.github.io/GLLara/2018/04/28/release-notes-v028-final.html Particularly interesting: - Full support for optional parts. - Some improvements to bone handling. - Can import images as posable planes, to add effects or similar. - Many models that didn't work before will work now.
Euro City Express
I've actually wanted to take a picture of this train, but I never actually managed to stop in Frankfurt on my fairly frequent travels between the different ends of Germany lately, so this'll have to do. There's a new long-distance train category on Germany's railroads. Since December 2017, the list of InterCity (IC), EuroCity (EC) and InterCity Express (ICE) has been expanded and now also contains the EuroCity Express (ECE). This is something that sounds like a big deal at first, and a lot of press actually covered it as if it was, but in reality there's only one ECE train pair. It leaves Frankfurt in the morning every day, traveling from Ge

You wanna know? Czech private railway company bought an modernized Belgian class 12. You can see it here https://www.czloko.cz/pool/czloko/image/thumb_xxl_effiliner-3000-pern-1.jpg

I was wondering, are you still working on updates for Gllara? It's been awhile since the last update and I was just curious.

Quick update: I just created a new release of GLLara to fix a bug that was annoying me. Feel free to give it a try: github.com/cochrane/GLLara/rel…

Not at the moment, no. I work on it when I feel like it, but that's maybe once a year at most. Since I don’t really use the app for anything myself, I never really feel any need to. I know this isn’t what you want to hear, sorry!

If you want to do development yourself, or if you know anyone who might be interested, it's all open source. As an easier option, if you know anything you want changed or any new feature, go to the agithub page and create an issue. No promises, of course, but that is where I keep my own notes as well. So the next time I do decide to work on this app, this is where I'll look for places to start. (If you say it to me here then I'll probably forget it in a few months)
