newLISP on Rockets is my rapid web application development framework, which powers this blog and other sites. The code is available for free under the GPL at the newLISP on Rockets Blog.

I decided that I wanted to have a little nicer-looking logo and front page graphic for the framework than the little cartoon rocket I started with. So I whipped up a new model in Blender using simple cylinders and basic commands like Extrude and Size. Blender is really easy once you get the hang of all the shortcut keys, and those keys make things MUCH faster than using primarily mouse-driven 3D software.

I UV-unwrapped the model in Blender, got a free stock metal texture from newlisp.org.) The background picture is from a NASA weather observation satellite.

Glad you could make it!

I’ve converted my old blog (old as in circa 2010!) to a new one. The main change was moving the pages from being hosted on the Dragonfly web framework (written in newLISP) to my very own newLISP on Rockets framework (which, as you may have guessed, is written in newLISP as well!)

The primary reason for this change was to get all my websites on a single platform and to "eat my own dogfood" in terms of the newLISP on Rockets framework. Also, the Rockets framework is based on Twitter’s Bootstrap and thus has a nice responsive design that works much better on mobile devices. Go ahead, try it on your phone!

Not everything is converted yet (the user profile page, for example) and there may be some bugs over the next few days as I work all the kinks out. Please let me know if you have any issues.

Enjoy the new site!
