Right. I had intended my remark to be jocular but did not realise how sensitive the subject is. We learn. The best of it is that English is a bastardised language containing elements picked up from all over. Damn - the man-in-the-street cannot read or understand documents only a few hundred years old. Welsh OTOH remains pure - or so I believe.
No hangover this morning. Coffee - and then on with translating for Poser.
Soory if the previous post came over a bit snctimonius, I am after all only adopted Welsh, by reason of [A] marrying a welsman and [B] moving up here.
BTW local joke would have it the the reason for the topograhy of Wales is that when the Amgles and Saxons invaded the welsh all worked together and puushed Wales further away from them, thus squashing it up into Mountains and Valleys.
Apparently if you could find a big enough Steam Roller and flatten it out again it would be bigger than England LOL
Don’t worry, Cho. Your remark did not come over as sanctimonious, but merely the continuance of pleasant chat.
Another standing joke about Wales is the rain. One guy remarked that the many pretty waterfalls are compensation, adding, “We’ve got lots of compensation.” That was not so much as a place in the Faroes though, where one spot is called The Valley of a Thousand Waterfalls. I think that is an under-estimate - all three sides of the valley were streaming, trickling and falling.
Very slow start to Poser conversion, held up by vital TV viewing. It’s going to be several days, I fear.
It didn’t happen, I fear. About a month ago I was very pleased with myself when I recreated those amazing steps in the forecourt, but now I am paying the price. Taken together, those steps and the curly walls encompassing them comprise no less than 1,284 faces even with a reduction offered by Hexagon, but (wouldn’t you know it?) Poser doesn’t like them. In short, a proportion of these faces rendered with reverse normals and correcting them has been rather like picking grains of rice with a pin. We are getting there, but it has been an unexpected delay. Watch this space.
Good excuse to open a bottle, though. LOL.
I believe that I’ve cured every last one now, so all that remains is to check for any last-minute alterations, prepare some promo pics, write a ReadMe and bundle up. Keep your fingers crossed - it rather looks as though Wednesday will be the day.
