Ok I'm back sort of.
I had to go back to windows as I just couldn't do the open source thing they way I wanted or thought might be possible. I suppose it was down to my ignorance of linux.

I'm still riding the open source train but will supplement it with the programs that simply do the bloody job without writing my own linux variant to do so. It has its place I guess but if your trying to get things done taking a break to learn some linux thing to do that was interfering with my creative juices lol.

I'm getting into 3d printing in a way I hadn't expected and like many drugs I hope the novelty wears off soon as it's now another hobby/interest making demands on time I don't have already.

I need to get back to my Python Programming studies and my piano lessons now my car problem has been errr well temporally fixed.

I need to re-look at my Rockmaker maxscript along with a few others and make them more efficient.

Here's Paul Neales latest video from Pen Productions

I really need to update

I really need to update this blog and my excuse for not doing so is pretty lame ;-)

I've slowly been changing over to open source software.

My laptop now duel boots into Linux Mint and Windows 8.1 and much of my image manipulation ie photoshop is now gimp or another free open source piece of software.

I'm even learning Blender

but the reason for keeping things duel boot is because of running software that linux won't run (With the same reliability)

My car died and a lot of extra effort is going into raising enough money to repair or replace it, so I've lost my focus on this blog as it needs to be on the back burner until things all get back to normal.

I need to add an updated demo reel but I think it can wait as not much that I can easily show has been filmed. No one want to watch me pull my hair out scripting lol
