Happy New Year!
« on: December 31, 2007, 05:24:52 PM »
May all your children be black!

That's what I wished for myself. If you know what I mean. ;)

But seriously, I hope not to end up being a street-person in the next year and acquire myself a decent PC. One that can run....ugh...OpenGL programs.

All the best. :)

Should be done in the next 2 months...most likely. Sorry. It just isn't going smooth. Maybe it's a cursed project. Dunno.

Celebrating new year is fun, second best day in year (mid-summer is best) but i hate the fact that it takes atleast 2 months until i remember to write new year in dates etc. :D
Just today, i did write "03.01.2007" damn
