    Moonshine Diner Part 1 

    Join me as I work on the cast of Marlin’s World and find a place for them to hangout! Moonshine’s Diner is a product of DAZ3D.

    Rick Klick 

    I’m a large man. I wanted a “Poser” character to represent me. Marlin Fingle was based on DAZ3D’s Michael 1. Michael 1 didn’t produce a very good fat man. That’s why Marlin lost weight.

    I based Rick Klick from DAZ3D’s Michael 3 figure. His body got deformed a bit when he became heavier. A few years later, I used DAZ3D’s Genesis 2 Male for a new version of Rick Klick.

    Bitti Botti is a grumpy woman. She’s always into everyone’s business. Victoria 3 was the base of her character. I needed Bitti to wear a waitress uniform. She couldn’t find one. Years later I discovered Genesis and the 1950’s waitress uniform.

    Two Marlins 

    In 1999 I discovered Poser and started on a dream to bring my life into the world of art. Marlin Fingle was my first character. He went on a diet by 2005, and stayed the same for a decade. I recently tried to put my characters into a new scene called Moonshine’s Diner from DAZ3D.

    I ran into difficulties finding the right clothes for their new roles, etc. The answer was to use DAZ3D’s new Genesis characters as a foundation. Genesis characters had a larger wardrobe. Genesis characters are also more advanced, etc. Here are the old and new Marlin Fingle.

    DAZ3D Introduces Scott 6 

    Many people were wondering when DAZ3D would release Michael 7.DAZ surprised us by releasing Scott 6 first. Scott is an athletic character. His Pro Pack is geared to sci-fi, superhero, spy & “Real World” clothes. This is one of the best “Pro” bundles so far. I’ll have plenty of fun with Scott!

    Introducing DAZ Scott 6 

    People were speculating when Michael 7 (Genesis 3 male character) would be released. The answer is a typical “DAZ soon.” No established date. In the meantime, DAZ introduced the latest Genesis 2 Male character, including a discount offer on the upcoming Michael 7.

    I roughly calculated this month’s new characters. We’re talking at least $300 for the Pro Packs.

    Disable Spotlight on the Macintosh 

    Spotlight indexes your hard drive to help you find stuff. I have over a million files, and move them around. My computer was freezing. I disabled Spotlight to fix the problem.

    A Serious Fall 

    I had a serious fall today. I was cleaning the apartment. I turned around, tripped on an ottoman, and down I went. I reached out. My left hand landed on top of a side table by the computer desk. My right hand struck the seat of my office chair. The chair hit the computer desk, and knocked over one external drive.

    I had a minor scrape on my right leg, My right arm and wrist feel a bit sore. They’re usually always sore. I’m upset emotionally. That’s the real damage.

    I really need to clean this apartment and organize or get rid of some stuff. Part of that goal would be accomplished by setting up another Macintosh on the computer table. I need to find some bolts to attach one monitor to the monitor stand. It’s been months since I used that monitor stand. I really need to do the laundry.

    I feel exhausted and want to sleep. My Dad called awhile ago for some tech help. He’ll call back. I want to sleep.

    Stop Spotlight From Indexing Hard Drives 

    I’ve been moving thousands of files in order to organize my 3D Art stuff. My computer apparently had trouble keeping up with the demand.

    I decided to disable Spotlight Indexing on my external data drives. Here is an article I used for reference.
