Group analyzes works of C.S. Lewis

10/22/06, 11:20 am EST - Xoanon

C.S. Lewis wrote his novels more than a half-century ago. His words still have impact, as it brought a group of strangers Wednesday night at the Canterbury House on the College Avenue campus. C.S. Lewis was a prolific writer and a Christian speaker who is best known for his children's book series The Chronicles of Narnia. Although he died in 1963, his many novels and essays dealing with Christianity and friendship are still studied today. The C.S. Lewis Society at Rutgers addressed the topic of friendship - which was one of the sections of Lewis' The Four Loves - at its first meeting. [More]

Weta Digital - extraordinary rendition

10/12/06, 2:24 pm EST - Xoanon

Weta Digital is an extraordinary company. It was formed 13 years ago in, of all places, New Zealand, by film director Peter Jackson and others to provide visual effects to movies. After having its physical effects part split off, one of its first projects was to provide the special effects (SFX) for the film Heavenly Creatures. This needed one computer, a film scanner and a film recorder. Since then the Lord of the Rings trilogy has happened, followed by King Kong, and Weta D now has up to 600 people working on projects using a so-called Renderwall suppercomputer with 4,400 processors backed by a BlueArc Titan super-NAS system.
