    I think I'm connecting again, but not real sure. Was the forum having problems earlier?

    My dear little lady, why are you pushing that gangster war game on us? I would rather you tell us what it was going on in your life than you add that to your sig.

    It's a family thing. My #2 son owns it and I'm trying to drum up business for him.

    I figured out how to change the background for the Holiday Room aka Lyrra's Room aka Granny's Room. It was used in the BC in Aug 2011. I went to Parameters - Diffuse and substituted the background I wanted for the black backdrop it came with. Now I need to clean it up, l need to light a fire in the fireplace, and get busy knitting.

    I am learning a lot these days, I'm buried in my books and putting what I learn into practice, mostly in 3DS Max.

    Modelling is fun.

    On a somewhat related note, I am going to try to post more. I have been neglecting the forum quite deliberately I'm afraid. The home situation has got so bad that I'm extremely grumpy most of the time, but I want to put more effort into this side of my life.

    How is everyone?

    Running backwards in circles, naturally. Barry, get rid of those grumpy drawers and put on some happy ones. Maybe a pair with bells on them would cheer you up. Sometimes I wonder why we have to have a real-life. Virtual ones can be so much better.

    Sorry things are so rocky there. Here's hoping things will get better. Maybe Santa will take away a present (Daniel) instead of just leaving a lump of coal for him.

    He doesn't know it yet but his present from me is worth very little money. Everyone else's are much nicer.

    He doesn't rate a suitcase, just a plastic trash bag.

    Crap on a cracker, I found out this USB headset microphone set up can be unplugged from what is an adapter in the middle of the line. I can plug-in the headphone in one plug in the microphone in the other plug. Then all my sound for every program goes into the headset, but here's the but, because I trained Dragon NaturallySpeaking using the USB microphone my profile, the thing that it uses to understand me, will not work with the standard microphone. After a week plus of training this thing to understand me and everybody's handles that I put in so far will need to be done all over from scratch. If I swap it from USB, hearing everything through the headphones, and talking to it at the same time, will force me to start back at day one.

    I'm doing a very slow render! Was hoping to post it this morning but no chance, it's been going for nearly 17 hours and is 55% through!

    Well, I had to start my render again for two reasons. Firstly part of the young lady's armband was poking right into the arm and I hadn't noticed in preview. I didn't want to hurt her so I decided to move that! Secondly, I was using a snow shader on M4 in an attempt to make him look dirty (changed the snow colour to brown and grey), but it also made him look really shiny, so I took it off and he looks clean (not keen on that but never mind).

    Anyway, here's the render. Hope you likey.

    I did get Christmas boxes piled in the living room and the manger scene unpacked, with a lot of help from the 14 month old grandson. I can't tell if he likes angels or not. He kept putting them in his wagon.

    Every time my daughter decorates the tree, Earthquake Ian hits it within 15 minutes. Tinsel on the floor, ornaments in kitchen, living room and hall, angels in wagon. He's getting fast at rippping open presents, no matter whose they are. I'm only leaving my room for coffee.

    OH poor Anne. I remember the days of having to hide presents away out of the way of grasping little hands. My younger son was a very curious child ( looks suspiciously around to see if Neil is listening) and he took a good many years before he changed. :coolgrin:

    ANd then of course, after the presents have all been officially open you have that problem with clearing up the resulting mess, because, as we all know, the boxes and wrapping paper are infinitely more interesting than the toys that were inside, both with kids and cats.

    It's just part of the joy of Christmas. My daughter has already had to completely rewrap one present. I think she has given up on keeping the tree decorated.

    I don't know who is going to be around tomorrow, since it'll be a busy day, so I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

    Some days have been rather dark this year and it's been this community, and especially the posters in this forum thread, that have lightened those days. Thank you.
