Hey peeps!

Well my last blog failed didn't it? I start my work again and the the Lagwagon© (the name of my PC, you can't nick it, I've copyrighted it ;) ) decides to go suck a fat one and force me to factory restore... again, 4th time now I think? but heck, I want to map, so shittyass PC or not I will carry on creating maps whenever my computer decides to let my use the Source SDK again.
Seeing as my flat is now gone, I have started a new vision, but I might revive my project next time I have nothing else to do.
If you're out there thinking "Give up man, my fatass mother can fun faster than your computer" Sure, you may be right, but as a wise friend of mine once said ' Live life to the fullest, follow your dreams and make damn sure you have them. ' Although I wouldn't class spending my day sat at a computer living life to the fullest, neither would I class 'Fullest' a word (Should probably look it up before I post this, but heck) I love developing, so in a way, this is my dream - and I will never give up.

^_^ I had a 1.2 single core processor and a Geforce 4 with only 512 mb RAM during 2 years of working on 1187. My old motherboard was set at half of the capacity my video card could actually run, so I even had half the power utilized of that card ... only the last year of developing did I get to upgrade to a duo core i5 with 4 gig RAM and a ATI Sapphire 5080HD, the leap of power was insane and I could do things that I couldn;t before, but, 1187 wouldn't be where it was if I didn't have faith in myself and even when I couldn't map with HDR, or I'd have to wait insane amounts of time before a map got compiled, or my pc would crash, again, or ... well, too much for that matter to sum up here.

What I'm trying to say is that however crappy your pc might be I understand how it is to be where you are, and also for me, I didn't give up.

So that's one more motivational point I have to offer you dude.
Now go get em ;)
