Here’s a film I made for the latest CGSociety challenge…the theme was to adapt an ancient myth to steampunk stylings. I chose the myth about the fountain of youth for my topic.
Here’s some exceedingly lovely student CGI animation that also manages to tell a great little story. I’m reminded of Neil Gaiman’s story “Other People” from his excellent collection Fragile Things (to say more would be a spoiler!).
I’ve also included the Making-of video.. Pretty impressive short animation though.
The username is the main Email address you have with aapt, and the password is the same as for email.
There are 2 main views in the usage meter, Show ADSL Usage & Show Dialup Usage, in actual fact, Dialup usage will show ADSL usage as well. The main difference betweeen these is that ADSL usage only shows a graph with when the usage took place, not many other details (and from what i’ve found, takes ages to load). However the dialup usage page will show much more information, however is all text, i suggest you give both a go and you’ll soon work out which view you prefer.
This usage meter is generally running ~24 hours behind, this is because the usage is counted once your session ends, A Session is the time that the modem is connected to the service, generally a few minutes before midnight a new session is started.
The effect of this is that it apears the usage meter is running slow/behind, but infact, the issue is that since the session starts a few minutes before midnight, all usage in that session is registered for that day. Eg:
Session starts at 10th July 11:55pm
Session ends at 11th July 11:55pm
99.995% of the usage most people make in that period has been made on the 11th, However, as it started on the 10th, the usage will apear for the 10th.
Note: If your username/password does not work on this usage meter, none of the following usage meters will work either at present, this means that you are on AAPT’s new platform.
I dont personally use it, however some people find this a good option.
FinalÂ NoteÂ onÂ theÂ newÂ System
A Final note to those people on the new system (Ie. cannot log into the above official usage page)
AAPT has recently changed their website format, and moved to a new platform, all these usage meters are incompatible with the new format.
