    Morning. Non complaint: four day weekend. Complaint: Waah is a little cool so far today.

    ...from what I've seen of the advance Melbourne forecast, in a couple days you'll be wishing for cool.

    here we will be lucky if we make the upper 40s.

    While on the weather site during lunch viewed the photo gallery for Melbourne. Nice looking city with some really neat architecture (love the Webb Bridge). In one night pic taken along the Yarra it didn't look too different than here in Portland along the WIllamette, though you have a couple taller skyscrapers than we do.

    Also love Flinders Station. We used to have a really neat Gothic styled station on the lakefront (Lake Michigan) in Milwaukee WI where I grew up (see below) but nothing as grand as Flinders. Unfortunately it was raized in the mid 60s in the name of "progress" and a lakefront expressway that was never built.

    Seems that power kiting and kite boarding is also quite popular there. You must get some really good winds.

    ----

    ...well finally made it. Four days of not having to think about the workplace and all the associated politik. Very light day today (most of my client's personnel took off early for the holiday here) so was able to get out a bit early and get a ride home saving about an hour and a half on the commute. Currently at the neighbourhood pub enjoying a pint of CatDog on 2.50 pint night (every Wednesday all ales are 2.50$ a pint all day until close - and this is of fine handcrafted brew). The nice thing is I don't have to get up at 05:45 tomorrow so I can stay until time is called.

    Hey what a great ol railway station with a cute turret. Flinders St Station has an old ballroom inside, is very luxurious but fallen into disrepair. Old Melbourne was built during a gold rush mining boom and new Melbourne during a iron-ore mining boom so lots of public stuff is way lavish and even a bit controversial to the average laconic Aussie, I guess generations need to put their stamp on the future. The best thing about the gold rush guys was a fascination with parks and gardens and trees everywhere, newer skyscrapers have elaborate rooftop hanging gardens I guess to fit in with tradition. Strange in a city where it doesn't rain much but I guess that's the transformative bit of civilisation in action.

    We both deserve a few days off hey :)

    That's because women are typically sugar and spice and everything sweet and nice, whereas guys are just downright mean, except for me. lol

    ...most of it fond memories. Used to take trains out for there to Green Bay & Chicago until the C&NW; moved to the station they shared with the Milwaukee Road on St Paul Ave.

    The Milwaukee Road had an imposing terminal as well, very "German Bahnhof" in appearance. Unfortunately it first had it's magnificent clock tower removed then after the Milwaukee Road abandoned it the building burnt down.

    Unfortunately the only image I have from its heyday is an old postcard.

    did everyone have a nice day today?

    full tummy tired, the upstairs people making too much noise to fall asleep.

    i asked my 6 yo cousin if she decided what she wants to do when she grows up, without hesitation she says she wants to be a writer and illustrator.

    Spent the afternoon with an old friend eating rich food and drinking wine out of a cardboard box in the sun on a deck overlooking the Maribyrnong River, was sorry when the sun set and had to leave :)

    Complaint... More so disappointment and frustration. My WIP boots has an issue... I wielded various parts together... In the viewport all looks great... In renders, well let's just say it is mangled on the surface :( All the verts are positioned fine, all edges are wielded, the mesh is neat in the viewports, but is very jagged in renders despite all my smoothing efforts. I may have to re model the foot area of the tall boots :down:

    There is always a solution... And I think I found it... Though it's a painstaking process... It seems some of my verts are doubles, and you can only see it in the renders, not the view port which is annoying. I have to insert a wire (Cut it) to connect the double verts and then target wield it together, fixing the problem. ........... At least I dont have to re-model it.


    The drive that makes me wanna craft my own clothing is that there is very little, "Appropriate" and non-V4 clothing as well as not much support for genesis. You see alot of "Sexy" and there are beautiful renders using the style, but it's not really why I'm into Daz and 3D.

    Fair 'nuff, that's good motivation. I like what I saw of the boots :)
