Pep has largely been MIA for a long while. Last we heard of him in the moderator section of the forum he said he was looking into helping solve the server situation (which was a complicated issue) but whatever he's been doing, he failed to communicate to the rest of the active moderation team through it. So we've been stagnating and answering countless PMs about 'why can't I change my avatar?!'. So after a long while, Ptoing took it upon himself to buy new serverspace, move the db and fix the problems with the forum (Adam helped and is now eating cake). This streamlined the 'chain of command' greatly as now this forum is owned by the same people that run it. This was a good time for a moderator purge from people who were no longer active in those roles, so Pep, Goat and Dan have been demodded.

As to what Pep is up to I really don't know, If he's around he can post and fill you in himself.

ARGHHHH  :'( Don't you just love it when you are working on some graphics and suddenly there was a power black out. And you realize you didn't save.

I loved it more in highschool when you were working on an assignment in the "computer lab" and your friend would kick out the power cable.
Naturally you would retaliate and ultimately nobody would ever get anything done.

That is why one of my favorite features in 3dsm is autoback, so many times our projects have been saved by that holy grail of a tool.   Only problem is if you forget to save the scene as and simply save it over the autoback, it will not be there for long.
(Also a reason why I picked up a UPS recently :) )

But yeah, I guess I never thought that Coke actually used the idea of marketing a drug LONG before Cocaine...interesting that if a street name is used, the FDA could care less, but as soon as somebody tries to sell something with the actual drug name, they go hay-wire.  Probably should keep that in mind when I start up my marajuana tea beverage...guess I should just call it Grass.... :hehe:

Speaking of Coca Cola, I guess all you Americans know that it's because of them that Santa Clause looks like he looks.

Probably for the better. If it were up to Scandinavians, he'd probably look more like this:

I labeled a cd "trojan_virus.exe" (it just had a few videos for Digital production) and nearly failed the class because of it.

Ironically, we were using mac....
