    I am slowly emerging from the darkness of depression, but slowly. I don't have a car now so eveythings has gotten harder. At least Asda etc deliver now so that is what I am doing. I managed to render an image for Dreamlight's monthy. Thanks for asking Jack. I have managed to get some motivation and got some major garden jobs done. Though I am paying the pain price now for it. Seeing the work done does put a smile on my face which is nice.

    So all in all things aren't too bad, getting better by the week.

    Well, glad to hear things are on the up. :)

    Speaking of gardening, this warm weather really has turned the garden into a jungle. I myself have spent all morning out there with the lawnmower, trying to reclaim the grass.

    Hopefully that will earn me some brownie points with the wife! ;)

    LOL, when it works ;-)

    Exactly.. and when it doesn't... !

    I think the results are pretty obvious to see here ;-) but the team have worked really hard and i'm liking the new site/forums.

    Hi Jack, not spoken to you b4, but i use your products and just resizing one that has just finished, will have a few older ones to post here too.

    Regards always. Ian :-)

    Sorry to hear that, as a fellow sufferer of anxiety/depression myself, hope you progress well, as for my garden, the wife wants lots of borders and bedding plants, whereas i'm more of a low maintenance 'put stuff in tubs' sort of guy :coolcheese:

    be well :-)

    Thx Ian for the kinds words. Yes I have suffered from it since 1998 when my body started to play up. Having to accept being a crip is hard considering how active I was.

    Garden. Before my body starting giving me attitude I dug out a 1 m deep pond, lined it and hid the liner with a small flat bridge, rocks and plants. Half the lawn went to make way for a pebbled area which leads up to the pond. I don't do bedding much. I like shurbs, small trees and ferns.

    You do know tubs and pots need more watering hence more labour. :)

    Nice work everyone!

    Had another afternoon in the garden - and looks like I've got more to do today too.. No rest for the wicked, as they say :)

    I hope you are Slip, Slop and Slapping Jack. I can take a lot of sun giving that I grew up in the north of New Zealand but even these last few days have taken their toll on me. Little red and a little heat stroke.

    Nice images Ian. I like the landing platform one above. Cool idea.

First render I did was crap, second not much better. Now It is looking better. I am sorry Jack not ine of you products in site on this one. But yiu know me, can you feel the love. :coolhmm:

    I am slowly getting used to the forums finding my way round the various new functions and turn off a few too. :)

    Hope so, just waiting patiently now for the forum to start bumping threads again.. I don't know about anyone else but the way it keeps threads buried, even with new posts, kinda kills the whole experience for me.

    I just don't have the time to read through all 11+ pages.. and that will only get worse as time goes by :(

    I find going to "My Public Profile", located on the front page of the fourms, and clicking "View all posts by this member" helps me keep an eye on the threads I have posted to.

    Plus I turned off Enable Smart Notification in the E-mail settings in our Control Panel also locate on the front page of the forums, top right.

    Also when I have finished reading all the new posts I will make all read before I leave the forums.

    Hey,

    The only timeframe I can give is 'soon'.. while I don't decide the actual release dates I can tell you that there is more both in the can and being worked on as we speak.

    I remember doing projects in grade school on the nomadic tribes of the North American plains. I like the sense of space on the wide shot and the brightness. As for Dixie, Dixie seems to be a very versatile character, she practically fits in anywhere.

    Well Dixie, in real life she is a special agent hopping through the time and space tunnel searching for adventures :coolsmile:
    she was selected for this job because of her versatility, intelligence, toughness and good look :coolsmile: and because she likes good Italian food, pizza and pasta, steak and beer :lol:
