Update

Damn, but this has been a busy month.

I’ve got a whole bunch of web projects that I’m finishing up right now. I’m currently working on something related to my last web design work, Nuglass, that should be close to final by the end of the week.

Last night Flood Theatre tested a whole bunch of new material at show we put on at East 15 drama school. It went down pretty well, all things considering. Some material bombed, some of it soared. That’s what these nights are for, anyway, and the feedback so far has been positive. Here’s the poster I whipped up for it:

Natural Selection 2 is going from strength to strength and it’s a fantastic experience to be able to work alongside such a talented and inspired team – even though I’m thousands of miles away from most of them. I can’t wait to be able to show off what I’ve been working on, and hopefully that won’t be too long now.

I finally upgraded to a whole new PC. In the interests of learning something new, as well as keeping costs down and getting exactly what I want, I ordered all the individual components and put it together myself. That went much more smoothly than it had any right to, and I’m really enjoying being able to play modern games. Given that the last PC I bought was in 2005, the upgrade was considerable even though I didn’t spend all that much.

A few puzzle pieces are falling into place now, and now that I’m close to completing a few outstanding projects, I’m looking forward to moving on and trying a few design projects outside my comfort zone. No idea what that will be yet, but I’m looking forward to it.

    Hey!

    I just stumbled across your blog (from the ns2.com community site) and found your website and blog very nicely designed :)

    As I’m looking to build a pc of my own now, and thought your blog needed a kickstart for animation, I thought I would ask you what config you got for yourself!

    Hope to hear from you!

      Hi Alex!

      Sorry for taking so long to reply. I should really stop neglecting this place.

      Thanks for the kind comments about the design. As for the PC config, I don’t want to go too far into just listing bits of technology, so instead I’ll point you to the same resource I used: theBit-Tech Buyers’ Guide. I went with the “Affordable All-Rounder” as a framework for my build, which gave me a decent price/performance ratio. I didn’t stick 100% to it, so do look in the comments there and take a look around a few other places as well for any other advice. One thing I will say is don’t get the CPU fan that they recommend. The mounting frame is far to weak to hold the weight of the fan and heatsink, which caused to shear in several places and come right off the CPU, nearly damaging other components as well. Nightmare.

      At any rate, good luck with your build!

      Andrew
