    Unlike blue potatoes, that are blue all the way through.

    Blue potatoes? I’ve had purple ones and enjoyed them, but haven’t seen blue ones. I always buy the purple and yellow carrots when I see them, and purple cauliflower. And red bananas.

    Haven’t seen green cola for a while.

    :lol: I think the purple potatoes are the blue ones and vice versa.:D


    As for the cola, I believe the green one is called Sluggo-cola!:D

    I just remembered that I have a bottle of Coke in my bag.

    Related to my testing for the troubled plugin and me starting and restarting 3ds Max, over and over again, Windows decided to activate a feature that helped to prevent "crashes", which in turn threw a warning in Corona Render (I'm testing this, and I'm loving it).

    Thanks to Corona's more informational warning notices I was able to track this issue and a solution almost immediately.

    No more warnings. :)

    I finally solved the 5x5x5 Rubik's cube without help! I've been on it, on and off, for months though...

    I've never been able to solve a 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube. :(

    I got fibre broadband! It’s thirty times faster than my old connection.

    I guess I'm still waiting for the price to come down a bit to get Gigabit Internet. The US has some of the slowest connections in the developed world, but by US standards my connection is pretty fast for not being Gigabit.

    I've recently found a few rabbit holes that I didn't know existed. Or, to be more precise, I've been exploring rabbit holes and found branches that I didn't realize existed and have discovered a lot of features built into Max that I had no idea were there or that I used to hope were there and were not at the time.

    The thing is, Max used to come with printed manuals and I would actually lay in bed and read those manuals, cover-to-cover, before bed or just to pass time. Now, they only come with PDF manuals and I'm less likely to sit at my PC and read them. It's too bad, too, because I could probably be a lot further in my learning process than I am now had I known of many of those newer features.

    I am happy that trees are being saved, but sometimes nothing beats a printed book.

    A gigabit would be awesome. I’m getting 25-30mb now. Some days I barely got 1mb with the BT connection, but it was meant to be up to 17mb.

    It's easier than it looks. But if you want to solve it without help, you need to be very very patient.

    Using the speed test app on my phone I’ve had up to 30mb. The estimate was 30-60mb. I’m pleased with this.

    Ah.

    I guess I'm at 480 Mbps at the moment. They finally upgraded our upload speed from 10Mbps (for over a decade) to about 25.

    I'm surprised you're at 30. I have a friend in SE England that gets about a 1Gbps on fibre.

    SE England has better infrastructure, it’s where most of the population is. I’m NW. we don’t even get cable here.

    A family member got promoted in his job. Knowing how he works, it's a well-deserved promotion!

    A total idiot paid me 170 dollars to 'smite' me. It should go down in the history books as the epitome of human retardation.

    That's about the only good thing.

    I had a snow day! And after nearly 24 days, my voice has returned!
