[color="RoyalBlue"]Sword of the Stars, a lot. And they've only gone and made a 4x space game with actual, tangible differences between the races (some of which are randomised) which means I no longer feel comfortable using my bog-standard ship naming system for everything.

The main exception I can think of is Dominions 3 - it only has a few tracks, but they're very good and a change from the usual epic orchestr...

[color="RoyalBlue"]I got a copy of Mount & Blade for not a lot of money, and I'm absolutely obsessed with it at the moment. It's not without its flaws, but it has some of the most unashamedly fun combat of any action rpg I can think of, as well as not having anything magical or any super-powerful pl...

I'm a professional (using the word in its loosest possible sense) photo enhancer/restorer, so I'd be happy to take a look. it may well be a learning experience. bear in mind that the bigger the source image, the easier it is to work with.

looks like a decent monitor. I'm not sure if you already know, but bear in mind that LCD monitors aren't as good at working at resolutions other than the one they're designed for. the two in my house tend to slightly stretch the image so that you lose a little of each side of the screen. it's not u...

I have been learning. made my first stuffed toy thing. the design is quite blatantly stolen, and I've a lot to learn. most noticably, the stuffing's a bit lumpy and it's a bit fat because I didn't allow for stretchiness on the design. but I'm still proud of him.
