It’s funny the things that you eventually end up at a few yrs down the road. Today for instance, I was doing a search on a web comic I once followed pretty much dedicated due to the mirth and comical mayhem it caused and the fits of laughter I would suffer afterwards. I came across someone that was part of the cast as well. Seems she’s getting married and all type for happy are happening for her. All I can say is good for her and wish her well, I know we didn’t get along or were buddy/pal like, but we still from time to time and on rare occasions had decent exchanges of verbal communications. It is/was good to see her succeeding in life and partially being where she wanted to be. I think we all just grow away from things at some point in our lives. It’s just a sign of saying I’m done and need to move and expand from what I’ve seen.
I can say that I really don’t miss much from some of the older times from the early yrs of my “forum” days. Lots of asshattery and douche bag teabagging cyber bullying on …..(Pondering) I’ll say 78% of the forums that I went to and that only 4 % of them are still in existence still. Maybe I’m wanting to rant again maybe I’m just thinking what type of messed up people I’ve dealt with on line. Then again there “are” (yes there are) people out there who aren’t douche bags and are actually quite fun to pal around with and discuss things with. Then there are the near-do-wells, you know the ones that you think are your friends, but they talk shit behind your back and cut up on your expense and you don’t even know because it’s all behind closed doors or it’s on irc or such? Yea, I’ve dealt with those too. The worst are the ones who prefer their games or other things rather than wanting to or at least PRETEND to show an interest in what is troubling you and what has you upset. Those are just the worst type of person you’d want to contend with. The only way you can actually deal with them is to make a clean break and just not bother with them and hope that someday they will realize what they did and correct themselves for future encounters with other people.
On the light side of things, I did get the family room doorways fixed and realigned, I even caulked the nail entries and the older indentured in the woodwork from past slamming and fits of rage that have happened over the yrs. Alright, enough ranting and feeling sorry for myself, I guess. Back to work and back to reading genshiken again from front to back and the official guide as well. I’m currently waiting for RE:play Vol.3 to hit the library and my hold list. Otomen Vol. 5 is out as well and a Co worker and fellow manga reader is grabbing a copy at the Barnes and noble’s this Friday and as soon as she’s done with it I get to read it next SQUEEEEEEEE! Wife got our oldest a Finishing Sketch Pad for Easter, she doesn’t want it! ZoMg, “fine” I’m taking it and I’ll see what type of sketch I can do on one the sheets myself! I love art pads like that, I think they’re great. AH! It’s almost time to go home must get pack ready to saunter to the car and drive home. Not sure what I will do after dropping oldest off at school but I know I’ll do something with the kids on the day before they go back on track. C ya later
Got my end of the yr bonus amount. Didn’t think I’d get one to be honest. It’ll be nice when I see it in my bank account though. Girl Scout cookies are here and I’m making my deliveries to work and only about 1/3rd of the people had the monies from friday’s payday still avlib.
Well I’ll just have to make an extra trip tommarow maybe then. As long as I get them done I’ll be happy. Next after i get home I have to make sure the pc is up to date and I have the Web Cam reinstalled. I think’ll retire for the night when I get home.
Watched the closing ceremonies from work. great stuff, blah blah blah yea yea yea . Can I go to sleep yet?
not sure if it is the weather of what but I am so tired today. But I did get part of the laundry done and the dishes and kitchen cleaned up. Helped the twins with thier valetine boxes. SO CUTE! I should and may take picks soon. Starting to discuss how to plan out the redo on teh family room and moving the laundry room and expanding the boiler room out properly. ACK ! have ot run its that time again.
Oh and Paul got done with the leon mcnichols model……Its cool, but something isn’t right with it. The hair just doesn;t sit right for some reason. The facical features are slightly off in a younger sense of the way. Well lets see how it goes? worst case scenerio, paul might have to redo the head. Which isn;t that made though.
Ok, so got up girls were still and only 2 slices of cheese cake avlib to have. (Not like I could have anyways to begin with). But then then all left and I started the clean up process. By the time I got everything done it is now time for me to head to work. So short entry today.
Ok, Mobster2 Vendetta, great game but as any game there are in fact several assholes per server it seems. The worst part about it is when you ask nicely, they act like total bollocks and need to have their Gulliver’s beaten in with a 2×4. What the hell is it with people acting like assholes in a game? Does it come right back and boil down to “it’s the internet, suck it up asshole” Where does the polite game play go these days? I mean in Mafia wars, there are polite people; they even wish to join after battling it out in good sportsmanship.
And I can see it like that as well. I do not tend to however add just anybody to my mob, MB2 wise or MF wise either. I have to get to know someone before allowing them into my squad of death merchants and kill counts. A few people said I should form up my own mod name/squad. So I did, secret forum within my site’s forum. But it is for FB Mobster2 Mob members. Time for me to head downstairs and start working on repairing bathroom fixtures.
So yea, going downtown tonight so I will be unavlib. But those hat have my # text me.
Hey hey, just got back in the door from my mother in law’s, saw ronda’s brother and his family thier youngest daughter is so CUTE! GAWD so cute, and she giggled at me! LOL We had a fun time with everyone. Dinner has great had the cheese and ham bake with a cheddar top. A nice garden salad and water. Oh and the downstairs as it is looks very cool, has a Semi Santa Fe feel to it. Having a mauve/sand tone + texture to the walls on one side of the room and a Rustic red on the other side as well.
Go the kids home and into bed, just posting this as I’m falling asleep. So I’ll ttyl and post to you all in the PM tommarow.
Ok, so I’m getting things cleaned up on the forum. Updated a few threads to relfect our move to UDK. Need to study more on the 3d model side of things. I mean I am trying to lear how to do some of this on my own but its harder than it looks. tryign to get some of the existing weapons ported over animated and rigged and coded properly and get a ammo pickup made for them as well isn’t going to be easy.
Nick called and he has an issue with his PC, seems his mainboard is the issue I replaced the PSU since it refused to post. not it posts but shuts right back off. So that leads me to belive and speculate something on the board or maybe a bad memory dimm might be the cause either way He’ll have to hit PC Laptops, or some PC repair facility on this one since I no longer have the proper tools to test and fix it myself. Ok off to work I go YAY !
Wow, now the physixudart_20.dll is giving me issues after reinstalling the engine itself. *sigh* I understand why but the how it happened is whats got me? Also, I have to check with the team to see how we are doing on progress. Paulo from what I understand is working on binging the map over to the UDK which should prove useful as far as getting the experince on working with it for the 1st time.
I am also learning how XMI works. Its proving to be interesting to a degree. because I’m trying to learn how to rig and I can understand how tedious and to the beginner how frustrating it can be. Animating and rigging models can be painful mental wise. But it does indeed give me an apperciation on the guys that do remarkable work with models like evilengine as an example. dude is a 3d marble maze of knowledge talent. If Epic had a an award for best player sculptor? You’d seen his name in the top 3.
Anyways, back to cleaning the kitchen and getting a load of laundry done. THEN WORK! on one more day till my friday! HUZZAH!
