Barry, I have held the gun to my head with my finger on the trigger.  It’s not a matter of no guts, but rather there is something we need to do to finish our plan for this life.  We may not know what it is then or now, but we will eventually get it done and then we can go.  Hang in there.

BBS, I am so sorry.  Give him an empty room, just a bed.  No phone, TV, or computer.  Lock up everything, including the bathroom.  When my brother was running loose, stealing everything he could from us, we put locks on all doors.  If anyone wanted to use the bathroom even, they had to ask me or my daughter to come unlock it for us.  And we stood outside the door until they came out.  Can Carole have him committed for psych evaluation?

I don’t know, Anne.

I am feeling a bit better today, but I don’t know what’s going to happen.  Last night I was quite literally suicidal, wanted to take all four of my insulin vials.  Not being melodramatic, I really wanted to do it.  But I didn’t have the guts to go ahead.  I know you guys will think that’s a good thing, and I guess I do too in a way, but I just don’t know how much more I can take.

On the plus side, I’ve got new toys.  3DS Max 2013 and Cinema 4D R12.  Nice toys.  I feel guilty because the only reason I’ve got them is because I know someone that had spare seats.  I haven’t earned them.

Still, I’m gonna make the most of it!

forget 3Ds max ( you didn’t like Maya ) - go with C4D - hope you post some thing

as for the kid - put that sucker AWAY some where - I know where he would be if he was here

I like Maya, I just don’t understand Maya.  Lots on-screen at once and some of it doesn’t make much sense to a newbie like me.  Of course, it’s a very professional piece of kit and newbies have a lot to learn.  And recently I’ve had less time than normal to plant my arse in front of the puter.

Cinema 4D is almost the opposite.  Clean interface, very little on-screen, but of course the same techniques will be used to model, so again if I learn this I am also learning Maya, Max, Carrara, Hexagon, blah blah blah.

Something will be built and rendered.  By the end of November :D

Well I don’t know much about the app itself but the manual is tremendous!  I was going to buy a book about Maya because I don’t like Maya’s manual/help system all that much, it’s very wordy, but now I don’t think I need to because just about everything the C4D manual explains will be doable in Maya, and the C4D manual is very easy to read.  Love it.

I do like the clean interface.  Not thousands of buttons, icons, forms and info panels bogging me down.  Really like that.

What I’d like is a 3D app that lets me customise the UI how I see fit!  I like Carrara’s attitude of having different rooms to do things but I want to create my own room with my own buttons, info, forms etc.  Not sure anything will let me do that!

Going to start (again) my project today.  In C4D.

got too sleepy to play much, found the collision smoothing thingy for other items in Daz studio 4.5, under scene tree edit
pretty cool for fitting clothes to other figures, did funny things with dynamic cloth though.

I am learning a lot from C4D, mostly from a modelling philosophy point of view rather than an actual doing point of view.  For instance, there’s a lot of advice about edges which I hadn’t really thought about.  No edges are truly sharp, so it talks about making curves all the time.  Great idea, and advice that I actually needed because my current model (in Maya) does look quite sharp around adjoining parts.

Whatever application I use I’m learning a lot from this manual!

my little car arrived today
wish I could open it and look at it but because they are collectables that could devalue it, it is up to my brother to decide if he wants to.

Collectables can be fun. I have a Ral Partha, limited edition, Dragon (The Great Red Dragon).  Still in it’s original box and packing, although it has been opened. Still has the ceritficate with the number on it. It is now worth at least 3 times the price we paid for it.

I have several times looked at it, and wanted to assemble it, paint it and have it on display, but strangely enough it would lose value if I did that.

Although I do have some collectibles, the things I treasure most are the dolls I spent so many pleasurable hours playing with.  When I got married in 1961 my dolls were the first things I packed to go with me.  They pretty much stayed packed until I finally got a girl in 1980.  They’ve been taken out several times for her to see, but not to play with.  She had her own dolls.  I gave her my Madame Alexander Cinderella, but she knew it was not for play.

I pretty much gave up on collecting things after I was robbed for the third time. I had a HUGE collection of Albums the first time. All but one of The Doors albums, all but two of the Beatles albums, most of Lynyard Skynyard and others. Then I had a LOAD of DVD’s, all collected one by one not in sets. I also had a pretty good set of Crystal Angel figurines. By the time they finished cleaning me out I had 10 albums, 9 or 10 DVD’s and just one figurine left. The Fact I worked 50 plus hours a week and everyone knew my house was empty when my car was gone made my place a target. My collections was not all that was taken. I went two plus years without a PC because I was afraid to buy another one. So I just stopped collecting things and let everyone I knew know that fact. The break in’s just stopped when the word got spread around that I never had a thing in the house I could not replace cheaply and fast.

We’re the only house in this small area that has not had a break-in.  All of our theft have been by visiting relatives.

Is that what you guys call a Ute?  In Britain we might as well call it a mobile reservoir because if you leave one outside for more than half an hour it’s bound to be filled with rain!

This 3D modelling thing is confusing, I’m going to be looking at other models to see where I’m going wrong!
