If you don't save at all during 4 hours of work, you deserve it, I usually don't go 30 seconds without saving. You're crazy if you go more than 10 minutes without saving.

I save often, but not religiously. Sometimes I'll go over an hour without saving, but when I'm working on something properly I save after any important additions/changes.

I think I save about every 5 to 10 seconds. When I'm working on Flash I also back-up my files every hour.

Denvah

I just got back from Denver, it was pretty awesome. We stayed in a 2 story hotel room which was awesome.

Then we went to the Broncoes/Saints game. We sat by this kinda douchish dude who got way to into the game.

Yeah, I know, I'm descriptive right?

Ding, level up.

RE: Dead Pixels

My Dell 17" LCD monitor I'm using right now has one stuck red pixel. It's quite dark -- doesn't bother me much, though I do notice it all the time. Fortunately, my fancy new Samsung 20" should be here tomorrow. :D

RE: Saving

I save compulsively every couple of seconds... ironically, I can't remember the last time something crashed on me while I was working.

That reminds me -- I'm forced to use IE7 at school (they have an executable whitelist = can't run external applications at all) and I found out today that it crashes if you attempt to switch to a tab that you just tried to close. :P

I'm giving you an evil squinty eye right now, i dun DESERVE it, unless you're saying its in flash's programming to crash. Honestly i usually save around once an hour and i'm perfectly fine, its once every ... 2 months..ish? that it would actually crash, in which case its because i have something downloading, music, flash, photoshop, msn, maybe converting some files or something, all at the same time. running my comp at max.

Flash Crash

I wish I could get into the mindset of systematically saving every couple of seconds. But, when I get in the zone of animating and I'm doing something that looks awesome or is super detailed and super intense, I find it so irritating to break concentration. You'd think hitting two keys wouldn't distract me...but I guess it does.

careers
Say I want to be a professional animator, what should I study? Graphics Designer?

flash bugs
Has it ever happened to you that you click on some are to fill it one color, and at the same time other area fills with an unrelated color? It happens to me constantly and its annoying...

Starting A New Game

I'm starting a game, which will be my first flash thing I'll put effort in. I'm hilariously ashamed of my games story, so Jesus comes back for his 2nd coming and Judas is still alive. So, expectedly, Jesus is kind of pissed, so he has to fight off Judas' Jew army (I'm sorry) who all have the stereotypical big noses and are wearing cloaks. Jesus progresses and eventually comes across guns. He fights off the gun toting Jews and their small to massive bosses in an epic struggle to get to Judas to finally take his vengeance.

careers

Unless you find a specific degree FOR animation, then I recommend a general degree in fine arts, what I'm going for. That's probably the most requested degree from animation companies.

Madness Day

Kinda lackluster for me, Zekey's probably my favorite just because he broke the formula. Sooo many clones this year.

But I will try it when the wireless is up again, thanks!

I dunno, I guess RyanPridgeon's right. The better you get, the better you want.
But I love my computer so much, I don't want something better atm.
I reckon I've gotten over it. I just like dark themes and wallpapers, but meh.

Also, the games are kickass. <3

HOLY. FUCK. That has happened to me SOOOO many times.
One time, I did all the movieclips I needed for that scene, just finished the background and all its little details, and then flash fucking crashed.

I just sat there for ages swearing at my computer.

Lucky for me, I live in Adelaide. And UNISA do a degree purely in animation :D
Only problem is, its quite a drive from my house. And because I'm lazy, I haven't got my L's yet.
Public transport as usual, I guess.

Yeah, happens to me a bit.
I colour something, and one part of the drawing becomes black.
Sometimes it goes unnoticed for a while, and I have to go over it, retrace the outline etc.

Stupid Maths Teacher
We got told our reports today, and also got our recent tests and stuff back.

I got an A on my big project, and a B+ on my latest test.

Then I got my report for Maths.
C.

I was pretty pissed off. I asked the teacher about my grade, and she said "oh, well it was only based on one test. I did the reports earlier on in the term, to save time."
WHAT THE FUCK!
The only test I didn't study for, and my grade is marked on that.
Bloody stupid.

DIY Teddy Troopers
I love this idea. I didn't really hear anything about the Munny contest, except the winners.
I love vinyl toys and such, and collecting nic-nac kinda things.
Also, I draw on most of my stuff.
Only problem is, I can't paint. But I'm gonna try.
What do you guys think about it?

Audacity has never let me down. Basic fixes call for a basic program, I don't feel the need to boot up the mBox to slice up a sound file.

I prefer goldwave, more options and still free. Audacity is too simple for more complex things.

CS4: I'll probably get it. :) I skipped CS3 but I think I may as well upgrade. Problem is I have no intention of learning AS3 so it could be a waste of money. Meh whatever I can afford it with ease. (I love you sometimes exchange rate.)

Saving: I save randomly whenever I remember. I don't lose flash as it's only crashed once and that was just because I scribbled so much. I have lost blender files and BBS posts ever once in a while though.

Maths: I'm top of the class and got 139/150 in my SAT's. There is a gifted set with 8 people in it. I came joint third with two others in the gifted. (I'm not in gifted.) Therefore only 1/4 of the gifted class beat me. Now explain how they are gifted?!? (One got 149/150 and the other got 142/150 so they ARE gifted. Still not moving up though as apparently now I'm too far behind?!?

Essays: I must shoot my English teacher. She gives us an essay every month. Enough said : /

N.B Speaking of which I should probably get on that since it's in for Thursday : /

Hmm, madness day is filled with madness clones, novel! It's sad to me how much people still completely love madness clones though, and original stuff like Madness Bar Brawl get such low scores, 3.8, that's ridiculous. Ok maybe it's not "original" but the animation is original, it's not a madness clone for sure. In fact one reviewer gave it a 3 and said "not to creative" wtf???

Also, Tom's game was swell, I've already played it three times.
