G'day folks,

If anyone in the Petaling Jaya/Kuala Lumpur/Shah Alam area is looking for a cheap, decently sized, mid-range model graphics tablet in good working condition I have a used Intuous3 that I'm willing to sell. I recently acquired a new Intuous5 and have no further use for the old Intuous3.

Product for sale:
Intuous3 PTZ-360 Graphics Tablet with Tablet Pen. Installation CDs + original packaging included. Latest drivers can be downloaded from Wacom's website if necessary.
Asking price : RM550 (COD)
Delivery : by hand to various areas in PJ/KL/Shah Alam or collect yourself in Kelana Jaya


[Specs]
Product : PTZ-630
Age : 4 years
Pressure Sensitivity : 1024 levels
Tilt Sensitivity : +/- 60 degrees
Tablet Active Area : 6" x 8"
Tablet Resolution : 5080 lpi
Reporting rate : 200 pps
Touch Strips : 2
ExpressKeys : 8
Pen Side Buttons : 2
Interface: USB


[Notes]
Overall in good working condition. Tablet overlay surface slightly worn (still relatively smooth for normal usage). ExpressKeys, Touch Strip and USB cable still in good condition. Pen side button slightly worn out, nib in excellent condition (brand new replacement from Intuous4 series standard pen nibs), eraser nib in excellent condition (hardly ever used).

It is cheaper compared to a brand new low-range Intuous Pen tablets (formerly known as Bamboo Pen Tablets) of similar size, not to mention the Intuous3 has twice the number of ExpressKeys and it also has 2 touch strips.

Status: Tanking!
Details:


Almost three years of tanking in World of Tanks... I think that's the longest amount of time I've spent on any online game I've ever played. What is it about this game that keeps me coming back for more? A more interesting question, why the hell am I suddenly posting a journal entry on my practically inactive dA account? The last journal entry was over a year ago (also about WoT, as it happens). Well, to be completely honest, there's gold (in-game WoT premium currency) to be won and I want it. So I have to write something up for a chance to win it. Hah!

I can almost sense that the reader is wearing a cynical expression right now. I reckon the reader is currently thinking "Oh riiiiiight, I bet amade is gonna start gushing praise for the game and brown nose the people developing it just so he can get his grubby little hands on some gold". Fear not! This journal is not a review of the game... rather, it's a reflection of all the things I've experienced as a result of my foray into World of Tanks since early Closed Beta (before the NA/EU server split), until the present day where I now have accounts in both NA as well as SEA server. Holy cow, I have TWO accounts on two separate servers. AND I've spent hundreds of dollars on both accounts. The amount of money and time I've spent on this game is mind boggling!

Moving on, I find it extremely remarkable how much WoT has affected my life. Yeah, I know that sounds corny as hell, but it's really true. For better or and worse, World of Tanks has shaped nearly three years of my day to day life.

I was introduced to World of Tanks sometime in the middle of 2010 by members of a certain North American gaming clan I was (and still is) a member of. I still remember my first battle, using the ubiquitous tier I loltraktor, in the map called Lakeville. Actually, it was in a training room... because I didn't want to go into a real battle acting like a complete noob and get laughed at/scorned by 133t veteran players (the term unicum wasn't invented yet I think, they have to invent efficiency ratings first). Basically, I really didn't know what to expect out of the game.

So my first battle went like this: it started with waiting for several minutes until finally another newbie to entered the training room I had created (server population was still very low back then). Since the match could handle up to 30 people at once I thought I should wait for more people to turn up before starting the match. A few more minutes went past and the lone player who joined my room got fed up of waiting and left. I decided I should join someone else's training room instead but it turned out all the battles in the other rooms were already in progress, and noticeably all the rooms had only two players each. So I recreated my room and waited yet several more minutes for another newbie to join. As soon as one turned up I quickly placed him into the opponent team roster and started the battle immediately before my victim could escape.

Finally! I'm playing World of Tanks! Ohmaigawd, the graphics are awesome. Look at that beautiful lake! See that town over there! What a tall mountain! The tank is so detailed! Alright, lets see what this baby can do... HOLY **** this piece of **** is ******* slow! Okay, never mind that. The controls are surprisingly easy though. Lets go into town, I bet that's where you can get all the best tanking action. So I crawl my way down to town, slowly turning round corners expecting the evil MS-1 on the other team to appear and spew hot lead on my sexy tank. After cautiously peeking around every corner I found no sign of the enemy. Nothing, nada, zilch. Feeling rather disappointed by the slow pace and lack of action I then made my way to the enemy base which was on the other side of town. As I was approaching closer to the enemy base a red bar appeared at the top of my screen. The enemy is capturing my base! The sneaky bugger! Instead of going into town and duking it out with me in a dramatic battle on the city streets he had gone through the quickest route to my base to capture it! As it was impossible for me to capture the enemy base before he captures mine, I was forced to make my way back to base. Then, just as the base was about to come into my view the capture bar filled up and the battle ended.

So much for my first exciting battle.

It wasn't the worst first impression I've had for a game and I usually stick to a game long enough to give it a fair trial. So for my next battle I figured I should just jump straight into a real battle with full teams. Back then in early Closed Beta, WoT did not have Match Making as we know it in its current form. Instead there were 2 modes of battle: Standard and Recruit. In Standard, tier I tanks can and will go up against tanks of all tier, all the way up to tier X. Tier I and II tanks don't have to enter Standard Battles, but some brave people bring them in regardless and are occasionally team killed by irate players. The matches are balanced by giving an equal number of each tier (more or less, it's a bit more complex than that). I knew I wasn't ready for that yet so I joined a Recruit Battle, which is basically the same as Battle Tier I in the current WoT MM; only tier I and II tanks can enter Recruit Battles... however this included tank destroyers and SPGs. I hoped for the best and clicked the big red "Battle!" button.

I was hooked.

I got hooked real bad that I spent hundreds of battles in the PzKpfw II because I wanted to be PERFECT before I move up to Standard Battles. There was so much depth to the game that I resolved to learn everything there was available about it before I go face the veteran players (the majority of which actually have only played a few hundred battles as well as it was VERY early Closed Beta). I stayed away from trying out the SPG for quite a long time because of the prevailing animosity towards it by many players at the time plus I was afraid I would suck at it, but soon I tried it out anyway because I didn't want to be ignorant of what the SPG gameplay was like. I was very late at trying out the TDs as well because the lack of turrets did not appeal to me back then. Eventually I sampled every class and it wasn't long before I developed a fetish for collecting tanks.

When platoons were implemented, the game became several times more fun now that one could play with friends without having to count down and click battle together in the hopes that we get into the same battle. A very large majority of my games on NA server were played with my regular platoon mates from the gaming clan I mentioned earlier. Without them I probably would've stopped playing on NA and would only limit my gaming on the SEA server. 90% of the time I play on SEA is done solo because I haven't really established any long term connections with anyone yet to platoon regularly.

It's been two years and 7 months since I got into World of Tanks. I'm still playing the game, still stalking the official forums (both NA and SEA). Nearly every morning the first thing I do when I wake up is check the forums and play the game, because mornings are the best time for playing on NA server when the ping is pretty decent. It's a good thing I'm self-employed, I can start work late, procrastinate or skip work completely any time I want! I must admit this does bring terrible a toll on my productivity. Work was neglected, clients were pissed off and had to be placated, self-promises were made to work harder which were inevitably broken over and over.

I've spent so much time on WoT I've made custom skins, created skinning tutorials, collaborated on player made mods and apps, and even do official work on localization of the game client (which repays me more than what I had invested into the game by several times over!). I've learned more about tanks over the years than I thought I ever would, and more about military history than I thought I ever cared for. The game has burned me out a few times and I've taken a few weeks off from playing each time but after a while I always come back to WoT. I often tell myself, one day I'll eventually give it up, just as how I've given up various other online games I used to play when I finally get bored and could no longer derive any further satisfaction from them.

Right now however, I'm content to just continue enjoying World of Tanks and let that one day remain in the very distant horizon.


I CAN HAS GOLD NAO PLZ? KTHXBAI

You may or may not know that I'm currently wasting most of my free time playing World of Tanks. Recently however Wargaming.net (the developer) has opened its new office in Singapore and set up a regional server for South East Asia!
worldoftanks-sea.com/

The SEA server is currently in open beta (once it officially launches most if not all progress will be reset, but you'll probably also get a special beta tester gift after launch), if you want to try it out this is the best time to do it.  Gold (premium in-game currency) will be given out free daily during open beta so you can sample the premium content before it goes live, though the game itself is free-to-play with very little reliance on premium content for an F2P model. I'm also one of the translators for the Malay localization (yep, Malay language is available for this game!), so if you're Malaysian go check it out and let me know what you think of the localization. There's only one snag: the SEA server is still very new so the population is very low right now, though I expect WG will be doing some extensive marketing drive in the region soon enough like they did for NA and EU.

One other game I'd like to call your attention to is Hawken. All you mech fans should love this.

Closed beta sign-up is now open (if you do choose to enlist, please use the referral link above ;) ).

I wish to share something that I wished I had found out months ago and save me from all the frustration.

If you own an Intuous tablet and you're using Photoshop CS5:
1. make sure you have driver 6.1.6-7 RC installed (uninstall older driver first)
2. open up tablet preferences
3. double click on the tablet icon on the top row
4. set the mode to recognition data !!!IMPORTANT!!!
5. ???
6. PROFIT!

Your pen pressure sensitivity will work properly now instead of only working intermittently. It's also reported that if you have 6.1.6-7 installed but using older version of PS-CS you may start experiencing the problem of pen pressure sensitivity working intermittently, just set the mode to recognition data and it should work normally again. Driver 6.1.6-7 is supposed to fix this particular issue in CS5 but the documentation on it was practically non-existant and ended up messing up pen pressure sensitivity for CS4 or below users who didn't know about it (I mean, who'd knew that you could even double click on the tablet icon in the preferences to bring up an obscure dialog?).

Details:
Been almost a year since my last journal. How goes everybody?

I've no idea how many folks are still watching this inactive account, I still do check in to see updates regularly I just don't post stuff anymore. Anyway, to get to the point I'm looking to build up a network of freelancers to outsource work to. I occasionally would get more work/offers than I can handle or work that I don't have the full skills for so there are also profitable collaboration opportunities.

The kind of people I'm looking for are people I already know, hence why I'm posting this on my dA journal. Of course, you should also have a strong portfolio that's accessible online and have working experience in the creative industry (freelance or employed). People I know in real life is a big plus, especially those from The One Academy but I've lost contact with most of you. Too bad I don't facebook, I'm pretty resistant to it despite knowing its potential and rising importance in society. I did join a social network thing though, which is purely for professional purposes. See the link below after the commissioning info link. Hopefully we can connect with each other and spread some work around.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Take care.

Normally I'm pretty ignorant of the all going-ons in dA and usually couldn't care less about it but today... well, I haven't been so active on dA since so many years ago.

I actually wanted the Team Gaga avatar but after handing out several llama badges to other Team Edward users I actually kinda grown to like being on Team Edward. The prime motivator being the team scores dA recently placed next to the logout button, it was fun watching Team Edward leading for a while until for God knows what reason they suddenly removed the numbers :|

It's not fun anymore. Spoilsport.
Well, at least today I had some reason to post a new journal to replace the old new year greeting. Happy April Fools day folks, peace out till the next holiday or global event of some sort.

P.S. Team Edward RULZ! ***:star:sparklesparklesparkle!:star:***

Long time no see folks. Happy New Year and all other well wishes I should be doling out but haven't due to it being very belated.

I had just arisen from a slumber in which I had been dreaming. This ain't one of those cheesy "I had a strange dream, I wonder what it means?" kind of dream, it's just a perfectly normal dream which is the result of the brain trying to sort out recent experiences and I know exactly why I had the dream.

Just the night before I had been playing The Last Remnant (a very decent JRPG). I only played it for a couple hours because it was late and I was tired from work. But in the past few weeks it's been the only game I played whenever I have a bit of free time to waste spare. So, unsurprisingly, when I went to sleep I dreamt that I was in the game.

In the dream the game characters were all asking for various things. Some of them collectively asked to go and look for a certain item usable by several of the characters while one or two others wanted something which only they need. Etc, etc, etc... It seemed to me that the characters were extra whiny than they were in the actual game itself. Then, while still in the middle of the dream I woke up with a throbbing headache. I really hate these sort of awakenings because the dream is still fresh in my head and being an anal retentive my brain insists on making sense and solving the problem I had in my dream.

In the actual game itself the various playable characters would occasionally request a certain item for them to be able to upgrade their equipment. Procuring these items mean having to visit certain locations and farming them from various mobs. Sounds straightforward enough right? Well, no. You can have up to 50 characters traveling with you and each of them are equipped with a preferred weapon type and each with a certain upgrade path. A lot of them require different upgrade components but quite often enough a few of the characters would need the same item as some other characters. So I try to plan my excursions based on the various characters' needs, going to places where as many types of the requested items can be found while spending as little time and as few visits as possible to various locations. All this is optional, you could just ignore their requests and continue with the main storyline but instead of finishing the game I've spent the bulk of my playing time pandering to the demands of each character. If not to keep them happy at least it's to stop them from bugging me all the time. Haha. Did I mention I was anal retentive?

So while lying awake in bed I tried to reach a consensus on the issue I had in my dream even though it wasn't real and bears no consequence whatsoever to real life or the actual game I've been playing. Then my train of thought veered off into a completely different track altogether and I suddenly realized that how I deal with real people have been substantially influenced by the various RPGs I've played over the years. It was an interesting enough thought for me to forget about the problem I had in my recent dream.

In the various RPGs I've played I always try to get the best ending. Did I mention I was anal retentive? I did? Are you sure? Well, if you insist. Anyway, I'm anal retentive (just to be sure). Quite often in RPGs the game would present you with various choices and decisions to make while playing the game and I would often choose whichever path that leads me to the best ending (the term and definition varies). This usually means keeping the main characters happy, but like in real life you can't make everyone happy which is why you have choices to make in the first place. Without quite realizing it, over the years I've been letting RPGs develop my social interaction skills, specifically the ability to hear out and evaluate everyone's views/opinions/needs objectively and come up with a win all solution for everyone, failing that a compromise that benefits most people instead. It is something I always strive to do when dealing with people in real life, there's an urge inside of me to keep as many people happy as possible. Occasionally I would wonder how I got to be like that and why I should even give a damn about other people.

Really, seriously. Compared to real life, if you do something wrong in a game you can always reload back to the point before you made the choice (provided you were anal retentive enough to have saved before each decision you were to make). Being able to relive these choices gives you an opportunity to learn and experience cause and effect without actually having to worry about possible negative results, since it's only a game and isn't real. Who cares about a few angry sprites? Just reload the game and they'll be happy again.

In a nutshell, anal retentive people make good mediators especially if they've been playing a lot of RPGs. Yes, I know it's a rather tall conclusion I've jumped to... don't argue!

So what's the point of this journal entry? It's just something for me to do while waiting for the aspirin to sink in so I can get back to sleep.

G'night folks.

Hello again folks. It's been very hot these few recent weeks, sweltering hot. So hot I could cook an egg on my wacom tablet.

Anyway, I didn't post a journal from out of the left field only to moan about the current climate, I was just wondering what everyone else is up to. I don't regularly update my dA account but I do check it practically every day. Though I still watch a large number of people I've hardly added any more into my watch list for over a year or two now. I watch their deviations of course. I always watch their scraps, and for some of them (especially ex-class mates) I watch their journals too.

Yet...

Hardly anything ever pops into my message box! Well, apart from regular deviations by a few exceptional artists who I don't know personally who themselves don't know I exist... You know, those sort of people you watch just to see their awesome stuff popping up in your message center. So where the hell is everybody else?

So my questions to you folks:
:bulletred: Are you still drawing or making any art?
:bulletred: What are you doing these days?

There are several people, both online and RL friends, I haven't heard from in a long time so I'm just trying to touch base to see how're you guys are lately*. In the past several days I met quite a few old chums I haven't seen in ages which triggered me to write up this journal looking to see if anyone else is "still alive".

Anyway, whatever you're doing... Take care all ;-)

*if you like, you can answer the questions even if you're a total stranger :-P

First of all, Happy New Year folks.

Now that we've got the niceties out of the way lets get on with what's this update is all about.

I've been stuck in a rut for a very, very long time now. There have been very few independent non-commissioned works coming from me and I've been meaning to get my portfolio buffed up with up-to-date works since... since I forget when already. For all ye freelancers, YOUR PORTFOLIO IS IMPORTANT! I'm pretty damn sure that many opportunities had been missed because when I look into my own portfolios I sometimes feel that although I'm confident I don't lack the skills or talents for a particular job posting I just don't have the work samples to show to earn the confidence of the employer. So this journal is a reminder to me as to what needs to be done. I've given a lot of thought on which particular genres/styles that I should focus on based on what's lacking and what's in demand.

Stuff I need to draw more in order of priority:

    Children's Illustrations - A relatively new interest of mine
    Anime/Manga - Something I haven't done much anymore even though there's plenty of demand for it
    Conceptual - Time I stopped envying and started emulating
    Vector - I've done tons of this stuff, but mostly for stock and/or under NDA, therefore I haven't showcased much of it in my portfolio.
    Stuff I like - Duh, in theory my portfolio should be full of what could be considered my fetish e.g. mecha, wimmin, red-headed wimmin, red-headed wimmin in overalls, red-headed wimmin in overalls in mechas... you get my drift.
    Backgrounds - I used to do lots of these, but it's waned a bit and all I have are outdated samples.



Feel free to give suggestions on what you think needs to be more of in my gallery, or what needs to be prioritised on. Also, as of this journal posting I should at least come up with one new upload per couple of weeks. So you're invited to shout at me if I don't show any activity on dA for the next several weeks (until the next journal update at least). I just hope there's still plenty of people reading my journal updates, I won't mind if total strangers come over to give me a tap on the shoulder once in a while.

Btw, am I the only one in the thinking that the new dA profile looks worse? I feel that now everything is so... disembodied. The old look feels more snug, and everything seemed to fit together just nice. And I'm almost certain that it's taking longer to load too, and that really ticks me off.

Also, Chinese New Year is around the corner. So I would like to wish all those celebrating it the best of luck for the coming Year of the Ox.

Gong Xi Fa Chai!

Work is getting better, I'm a lot busier with commissions therefore I've finally managed to replace my old Graphire for an Intuous while still being able to pay bills and actually have some money left over (wow!). Hopefully this trend continues.

As such, if anyone wants a slightly battered but still functional tablet (5"x3.5" active area) I'm willing to let go of mine quite cheaply. Here's a pic of it amade.deviantart.com/art/What-…
As you can see I can't hardly call it in good condition, but it still works perfectly well if that's what you're looking for. The plastic surface cover is slightly scratched but you can always overlay a paper or something else on it if it bothers you too much. Perfect for those who're too poor to buy a new Bamboo tablet or for those who wants to try out using a tablet before buying a high end Intuous. I'll also include the installation CD as well as the bundled software that came with it.

I reckon I can sell it to anyone living in the Klang Valley area, specifically those around Petaling Jaya, KL or Subang, hand delivered to any place I can reach via LRT/Komuter 'cos I don't think it will survive shipping in its current condition. If you live in KJ, I could probably deliver it to your doorstep. Minimum price will be at RM70, selling to highest bidder if any. If you are interested in buying or have any questions feel free to note me or reply here.

Cheers!

EDIT: Oops, I forgot to take into account that I only have 4.2mb/hr of bandwidth using geocities' free hosting service. So if you can't get in, that's because someone else have already used it up so you'll have to try again an hour or two later. My apologies for the inconvenience. This is just a test run of the site as I plan to move to a budget hosting service which will have a larger bandwidth limit.

EDIT again: I've disabled the links to the images in the gallery for now. Once the hourly bandwidth limit has been reset it should be okay. If you want to see the artworks just visit my dA gallery ;p if you want to see how lightbox 2 works visit this www.huddletogether.com/project…

Edit 3: Site now launched using my own domain name. Many thanks to those who contributed their feedback in helping me improve the site! Gallery section is now up again, the lightbox script should be working nicely and you won't get that 503 error no more! This is the last edit, I promise! I won't bother you folks again till at least next month :P

Good day folks, today I will torture you by presenting the much delayed, long procrastinated, haphazardly created by a newbie, online portfolio site, what belongs to me (Ooh, I can hear you groaning already!):

:bulletred:=>Studio Wossname<=:bulletgreen:

So I'm begging you guys to check it out and let me know what you think of the layout, content, etc... The gallery section uses Lightbox 2 script to showcase the artworks, but I think a conflict with Geocities' embedded scripts is preventing it from running properly. Keep in mind the purpose of this site is to impress potential clients and employers, so I'm trying to make it look as much professional as possible. Crit away on anything: copy (text), images, code... Any feedback at all will be much appreciated.

On a side note: I've already bought a new keyboard a few weeks ago to replace the old b0rked keyboard. As mentioned before, my PC lacked a PS/2 port and for some odd reason the PC hardware store near my house lacked either a PS/2-USB converter OR a high-end keyboard that uses a USB cable. Since I was too lazy to trek downtown to look for a better keyboard I bought a very basic logitech USB keyboard. The old Dell keyboard had those media & accessory control keys at the top which I had grown attached to but the new keyboard lacked. The workaround? I connected both keyboards to my PC and put the old one on top of the PC housing. Whenever I want to launch a calculator or adjust the sound volume I simply reach for the old keyboard :P

Have a nice day all!

Today's Journal was brought to you by the letters 'T', 'Y', as well as the 'LEFT-SHIFT' key and sometimes the 'BACKSPACE' key and the 'RIGHT-BRACKET' key. What do they all have in common? They don't work on my keyboard. But how come I can type this journal then, you ask? Well... There's a certain combination I can press for some of the buggered keys to work. For example, if I press 'Y' and 'T' together both of them will appear, but not if I press them individually. So you can imagine how many times I have had to press the combo keys in order to type out this journal. Now imagine how many times I had to press the backspace key (or DELETE key when backspace don't work sometimes) to get rid of the extra 'T' or 'Y'. Very, VERY annoying.

It started with the left-shift key. At first it was just a minor inconvenience... Ok, I can still live with just the right-shift key. No problem. Then the 'Y' key followed suit a few hours later. Typing was made a bit more difficult, but still not impossible. Then a few days later the ']' key and the backspace key refused to work sometimes. And now the 'T' key fell victim to this weird epidemic. Oh God, do you have ANY idea how often you need to use the 'T' key? It gets worse, my work is severely hampered because I rely HEAVILY on short-cut keys. Illustrator, PS, openCanvas... It's bloody frustrating! Dammit!

I dug up one of my old keyboards but my PC doesn't have a PS/2 port and I only found this out after I disassembled the keys from the old keyboard and cleaned it meticulously. Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! :pissedoff:

I'm not sure whether it's my keyboard or something is wrong with my PC, but until I get some money from my next commission job I'm stuck with this infernal keyboard :|

Bigod, why did I torture myself typing up this journal entry?

The old journal was... Very old. Everytime I read it I'd think that I had died or something. Although I'm not active on dA I still browse around and look at the works of the people I watch.

I'm feeling really pepped up lately, currently looking for more work as a freelance illustrator (see link below for more info). Also, I'm thinking of getting a domain name to host my portfolio and commission works but I'd need to look for someone to help me build the site. I was thinking of hiring a professional web designer but would prefer someone local (hint, hint).

Have a nice day all!

Things are going well. I'm still not active on this or any other art-related sites 'cos I'm busy with freelancing work. I've got plenty of doodles, sketches and semi-finished stuff but I really don't want to clutter my dA gallery with junk. I'm thinking of trimming it down and putting up new ones (whenever I actually have new ones to put up, commission stuff don't count). Or maybe I'll just stop updating this account and put up a proper portfolio site. But I'll still be hanging around watching certain artists and friends of course.

Apart from that, whenever I get bored or tired of drawing and work I'm spending most of my free time in this game => Regnum Online
Uh... I think I'm spending way too much time in it already. It's not WoW or anything like it (I've never played WoW before actually), but somehow I've always been attracted to games that have simple mechanics yet complex strategic gameplay. Should you decide to join this game, let me know so I can find you in-game. And make sure you bloody well join Alsius or I'll hunt you down every opportunity I get! :threaten: =D

On a final note, Happy Merdeka to all Malaysians! I hope you all had a great time celebrating the nation's 50th independence anniversary ;)

Status: What, me worry?
Details:
Things look bad... But what the heck, things have always looked bad. No sense in grovelling in despair. Although there are strong indications that things might fall apart I don't see why life can't go on. It's gonna get so much harder, that's for sure. Hardship has never bothered me much, some more wouldn't make much of a difference. I'm just gonna grin and bear it.

On the bright side, my freelancing work seems to be picking up. Hopefully it'll make up for all the bad stuff. On a humorous note, I forgot my own birthday about a week ago. That means I've missed my chance to go and hustle some of my friends into treating me to breakfast, lunch and dinner. What a horrible waste :(

Status: Totally bursar
Details:
I'm still alive... Yes, sorry to disappoint you all. I'll be posting one or two things in the very near future (ooh... the suspense! </sarcasm> ). Yes, I know that my journal entries sound more cynical these days. That's because I've become a very cynical person. But I promise you you won't find me cynical at all in person (or professionally). I just happen to like to write in this way. Honestly, I'm a decent person underneath that sour, frowning, craggy face :threaten:

Carry on folks, and have a nice day.

Status: Ambling through life through the other side of sobriety (aka knurd)
Details:
Been back in college for about a couple of months now. I'm now almost in my mid 20s and have gone through 4 er... no, wait. Damn, was it 5 years?... or so in pursuit of "higher education". Most of my peers have already graduated and got a job and some already married too I suppose. Even my current classmates who are a few years younger than me are nearing the end of college while I've fallen behind about a couple of years to them. Meanwhile, I've been on and off classes and jobs and periods of wanton "grape entrepeneuring". Don't ask.

Still, I'm not really complaining. I just rather not go where everyone else is going so I'll keep my own pace thankyouverymuch. muttermuttermutter

Minor update on ref links. You can find a few of Andrew Loomis' figure/anatomy books (scanned), highly recommended. I threw away the old link.
