lol, I was not sarcastic at all, love your stuff. I'm a scanlines geek too (dont play zsnes without them) I just didnt have anything to add to the discussion :p

Ah thanks then.  Sorry, I have a distrust of the internet and internet folks real meanings and intentions, plus a low confidence in my own graphics and my taste in retro (the amount of people who keep telling me to 'stop living in the past'...).  All that combined makes it hard for me to recognise a genuine compliment.  Thanks again.  :)

Thanks.

Member of the family passed away last night.   In some ways it's good for him because he's not suffering anymore.  We all thought his time was up about six years ago (I remember a very emotional christmas from that time) but he seemed to hold on a lot longer than anyone expected but in the end he was mostly bed-ridden and unable to have much of a life.

Edit: Dude, Carnivac, I didn't see your post before I posted here, I guess I have terrible timing. My condolences to you and the rest of your family.

Nah, it's ok Pawige.  Just strange to me cos I'm not that close to my family.  Always been a bit of an outsider but I do care about what happens to them and even though I knew this was coming some day it still feels bad now that it has happened.


Good luck with your game.   :)  I just noticed you moved the info of it to the OT Creativity thread which I had forgotten about.  Perhaps that's where I should have posted stuff about my game rather than clogging up this thread.

I think I know how you feel. Two of my grandparents passed away last fall (one was expected -- he had had a few strokes, the other was a major shock), and even though I didn't really know them very well, it was tough.

Yeah., that's it. Sorry to hear about your grandparents.

I'm sorry for all you guys, hope you feel better soon. Three of my grandparents have passed away, but it's been long enough for me.
If it's not too harsh to ask, I'd like the thread to get on a lighter note, since I've been wary of not changing the topic so as not to offend anyone :-[
Then again, if anyone needs to get something off their chest, please do so.

My brother mentioned an idea he's been toying with, which I'd like to share with you: would a website made solely for job offers revolving around pixel art/digital art be of any use or an improvement over the current system used in the Pixelation forums?
Planned as a separate feature already, actually, since threads for offers and portfolios are sort of.. meh-ish.
Crow, how long will implementing it take? :P I'm very interested in this, since I'll be looking for jobs now that college is over. I tried doing so in January semi-actively (about 10-20 applications over 2 weeks), but I didn't get any, and decided to stick to school 8)
