Kyle:  :-[

I'm in Italy now for a while but managing to make some progress in rewriting everything. (And maning some progress in sampling limoncello)

The hardest part is trying to program on an Italian keyboard. There aren't any curly braces! You have to press and hold the left ALT key (NOT the alternate ALT key on the right! That's needed for square braces, at signs and pound signs!) type 1 2 3 on the keypad, then release the ALT key to make a {

Steve
You could be the first programmer in history to actually use C trigraphs! =)
What do you mean by "rewriting everything"?

Is it an issue of not having enough keys? I think you can remap them in software somehow, maybe that would help?

My disk crashed week. I have a back-up service for my data. this is Seattle Washington real estate website Unfortunately when I added a new seattle condos for sale by owner disk last April it suspended backing up the Anim8or source files.   :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Sooooo, now I get to rewrite everything from mid April. This includes multi threaded rendering and the new bone editing code.

Don't worry, I'll rewrite it all. It was a lot of fun the first time, and it should be even more fun the second!

Sorry for this, its usually hard to start over most of the times after investing so much time on certain projects.

i am hoping that by now you have made progress and even improved on what you had before.

I've made a lot of progress. I'm in Italy now but will return to Califonia in a week and should have an update not too long after.

Great to hear Steve. Along with your re-writes, I hope you also found a solution for that frustrum issue we discussed.

PS. Looks like they don't have the letter "r" on Italian keyboads either. (Hope you make it back safely to "Califonia" though!) :LOL:

You may want to consider extending your stay, Steve...

With the GIGANTIC fires in both northern and southern California, the air quality is miserable.  I moved from Boulder Creek (in the Santa Cruz Mountains) to Lincoln (just a bit north and east of Sacramento), and smoke from the Camp fire (over 6700 structures GONE!) made it difficult to even see things a quarter mile away!
