Nah, it'd make you sound more like an alcoholic.

I like my keyboard a lot because it's very thin and doesn't make noise when you click stuff, but damn, look at this keyboard at the bottom of the page: http://www.avenir-computer.com/. first i thought yea whatever, it's just a keyboard nothing special about it, and it looks ugly. but you have 12 buttons on both sides of the keyboard that you can manually program which is extremely useful for games. I always have to do crazy finger acrobatics when I play WoW because I gotta have like 30 or 40 spells with hotkeys, cause clicking is for noobs. i have all sort of crazy combinations like ctrl-Y, shift-H etc. for all you gamers out there, i really recommend you get something like that (even tho i never tried it :p)

btw look at those crazy-ass graphic cards too. im so tempted to spend all my reserve money on a beast PC

I drink:
Energy Drinks,
Coke,
Sprite,
Coffee,
Tea sometimes.

Tea

Lets give you a brief...thingy. My mothers side of the family are pretty much all quite bad lightweights when it comes to alcohol, some of them end up unable to drink more after only about one can. However my fathers side are the opposite, and most of them can drink a lot more than my mothers side.

Then at my parents wedding one of my Dad's mates did a speech and all through it he talked about beer but he replaced the word beer with tea to take the piss out of some of my mothers family, for example he would say, "Sometimes Paul would drink barrels of tea, one after another, and keep doing so for the rest of the night" apparently all of my Dad's mates and siblings were laughing their arse off and my Mums family were just sitting there looking confused.

I was reminded of it the other day when I saw a bottle of beer and that beer was called 'tea'.

Desparados doesn't have tequila in. Its just tequila flavoured. Tequila is definately the nicest spirit, but it still tastes disgusting, and should not be drunk unless you purely want to get drunk fast. So that being said, why would you want to drink a beer that tastes like such a horrible drink? Its about 6%, so i suppose its a fairly strong beer, but no where near strong enough to compensate for the taste.

Its all about Real Ale for me. I normally just drink lager, since its cheap and usually a high % ABV, but you can't beat Real Ale.

back to flash-related matters....

Speaking of things you do while you are working... do you all have mini-rituals / quirks to your way of working?
For example, for many years I would mask the whole area and work under one huge mask. I'd do it so often like i dont even notice myself doing it. I'll also always turn off every possible snapping... omg if you ever send me a file with snapping and i dont realize it until im actually drawing and 'snap' i'll have a mental breakdown and drop kick things... oh i also hate it when people send stuff with symbols named Tween 1/2/3/4/5

I'm curious if like as a programmer you find yourself writing your code in an unusual manner.. maybe you are someone who comments lines religiously... maybe you have some sort of morse code comment system.. etc

back to flash-related matters....

I always label my folders alphabetically, like A_GUIStuff, B_Backgrounds, C_Effects, e.t.c, and imported stuff starts at the end of the alphabet, like Z_Bitmaps, Y_Music, X,_SoundEffects...

It's a bit weird, but it keeps everything in order.

I always tend to use dot hierarchichal (sp) notation on my symbols and folders. For example, if I've animated the walk cycle of my character "Blaze", the MC would be called "Blaze.Walk" or something along those lines. I also tend to comment my code a bit, but only on the uberly strange functions, the type that I would read the next day and NOT understand. xD

I write my code in the normal easiest AS2 way, just applying it into the symbol. I don't really comment my code much, most the time I only write simple script so I have little, or no need to do so.

The quirkiest thing I do in flash is save insanely compulsively. I literally save every time I possibly can. Right after I draw a line, I'll save, right after I type a line of code I'll save, it's pretty much if I stop to think about what to do next, I am instantly saving. I don't know if anyone else saves as compulsively as I do.

As far as coding... I separate my functions with //----// and put them in alphabetical order...but that's not very quirky.

I name variables whatever comes to mind at the moment. It's like a stream of consciousness. Makes it hard to go back and troubleshoot sometimes.

Rofl, I used to do that. Until I had a very hard time debugging once, so now I try my hardest to restrain from it. There's always the usual "coffee:Boolean" thing. :B
