animatortom:
if you have never done anything that gained you a paycheck

That's 99.9999% of people born without a silver spoon in their mouths. Sure I worked for many years, was in the Army, and built Spaceships too.

animatortom:
I never have had to worry about the wee one, or a hell-no face

Why worry about it anyway? (even a tiny one feels like it's a monster)

animatortom:
Besides, if my SO, wants it she better strip down first...

Oh crap,... goodnight, I just don't have the energy right now.

Goodnight Tom, and all of you, and good luck too.

It's like how on reality show contests they wait 5 minutes between "And the winner is" and the name of the winner, making you lean forward in anticipation. Except instead of leaning, I'm slamming F5 at super-sonic speeds.

Dude, you're on!

Ha! I thought that that post may have a repercussion or two. I didn't have the extra cash or I might have taken him up on that. Then it would have been sweet if HE had won. (like paying 500 bucks for the box he won!)

I have been doing exactly that since the early nineties, even with some big corporations. The problem here is a mater of principle. The response I received from ATI did not address my general concerns about their marketing practices. They basically said FU...Buy more!!!

So, I will not contribute to those marketing practices if they are unwilling to even understand and work with the people that have supported them for so many years. I know all companies do these type of things, and I also believe that is what has driven people away from companies like Intel and NVidia. It is also reversing those practises, that will drive people back to them. With these to-big-to-fail companies, they have just turned into companies that are just to big to care!

The main problem is that the bad marketing made me decide on the 8800 without upgrading the rest of the computer. Which, in turn has not improved my productivity! I have seen a slight increase in the rendering, yet other problems have replaced the time spent on the ones fixed. With a budget going to one card, instead of going to upgrade the entire system, all I feel I have done is blow the budget and many months for integration. Only to have a system that has shown little improvement, as far as productivity. If I would have gone with a new CPU and DDR3 RAM with the 7800, I would have been able to cut months into weeks. Instead, I am still stuck with a 2.6Duo-core, and 4GB DDR2, which causes lock ups when trying to do the final renders! For most artist like most people, time is money!

I would just be wasting time if I created materials for their marketing campaign, knowing that their own products don't contribute to increased productivity!

It's like how on reality show contests they wait 5 minutes between "And the winner is" and the name of the winner, making you lean forward in anticipation. Except instead of leaning, I'm slamming F5 at super-sonic speeds.

Dude, you're on!

Ha! I thought that that post may have a repercussion or two. I didn't have the extra cash or I might have taken him up on that. Then it would have been sweet if HE had won. (like paying 500 bucks for the box he won!)

Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.

I have been doing exactly that since the early nineties, even with some big corporations. The problem here is a mater of principle. The response I received from ATI did not address my general concerns about their marketing practices. They basically said FU...Buy more!!!

So, I will not contribute to those marketing practices if they are unwilling to even understand and work with the people that have supported them for so many years. I know all companies do these type of things, and I also believe that is what has driven people away from companies like Intel and NVidia. It is also reversing those practises, that will drive people back to them. With these to-big-to-fail companies, they have just turned into companies that are just to big to care!

The main problem is that the bad marketing made me decide on the 8800 without upgrading the rest of the computer. Which, in turn has not improved my productivity! I have seen a slight increase in the rendering, yet other problems have replaced the time spent on the ones fixed. With a budget going to one card, instead of going to upgrade the entire system, all I feel I have done is blow the budget and many months for integration. Only to have a system that has shown little improvement, as far as productivity. If I would have gone with a new CPU and DDR3 RAM with the 7800, I would have been able to cut months into weeks. Instead, I am still stuck with a 2.6Duo-core, and 4GB DDR2, which causes lock ups when trying to do the final renders! For most artist like most people, time is money!

I would just be wasting time if I created materials for their marketing campaign, knowing that their own products don't contribute to increased productivity!
