My mother survived a complicated operation this morning. Her severe illness came completely out of the blue, so I am still in shock. However, it’s looking good that she’ll be able to leave the hospital in a few weeks without further damages to her health. I am also happy that I managed to see her for a few minutes before the operation, and when she was waking up after it. She is the best!
Sintel has nothing to do with the largest cpu manufacturer in the world, but is the title of an animated short film by the Blender Foundation. The visuals are really impressive for an open source project with a budget of only €400,000. The touching story is about the girl Sintel as she goes on a quest around the world to find a baby dragon she calls “Scales”. You can watch the movie in HD on YouTube or download it on its website.
