It's all there in the title. =p

Being that it's the end of the semester, I've been a tad busy as of late. It doesn't mean I've been neglecting my promises! I've said it a billion times and I mean it: I will get all of the requests taken care of! 

Art of every kind is a side hobby of mine. I don't get paid and therefore have little motivation at times. We all know the feeling. Be it math, science, writing, or art, we sometimes just don't feel like doing them if it becomes work. We get burned out and loose interest. Or maybe it's just me...

I love art but I'm afraid if I push myself, it'll just feel monotonous. I don't want to dislike it! It already happened to me in physics. I absolutely love physics but if you want to be an actually respectable physicist, you need to dedicate every waking, sleeping, breathing moment of your life to it to become great. I couldn't keep up with what was demanded and I just got burned out. 

It's kind of like if you build a Redstone clock in Minecraft using only Redstone Torches and dust. If the clock runs too fast (i.e. If to much work is asked of it) it burns out and becomes unusable. lol Minecraft applied to real life :XD:

But for serious though, I really want to thank everybody for their patients! No one has been pushy or demanding but we're all human. I know what it's like to want something and not get it in a timely manor. Even if you understand and can sympathize with the situation, it's still a little disappointing in the back of your mind. The Ego is a tricky bastard. I just want to point out that I don't like Freud. He was nuts. It was just a good chance to use "ego" in a sentence! lol

Is this just me making excuses for not getting stuff done? Perhaps. It's not intended to be but I'll do some self reflection later and decide if it is all just an excuse when I have time. lol

BUT I DIGRESS! Thanks again all!

I'm a 24 year old guy. My interests are so broad that I find it difficult to specialize in one field. That said, I'm not the best but I try and enjoy what I do! ^_^ I don't really get to watch many movies and I've only just recently attempted reading for enjoyment lol I love (good) cartoons and anime. Such examples are The Powerpuff Girls, Ed Edd & Eddy, Dexters Laboratory, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Pani Poni Dash!, Negima!?, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Strawberry Marshmallow, .hack//sign, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun, Maria✝Holic, etc... Talk to me and we'll probably be friends! :D

I just want to let you know that I feel really bad for not showing gratitude. I did like that you tried to show me something I could read, and I never meant to hurt your feelings. I'm sorry, I truly am.

P.S. I won't bother you again, I just wanted to say this outside the poll.

No hard feelings. Admittedly, I was a little harsh in reply to you. 

It's hard to tell what emotion is trying to be portrayed on the internet. I prefer to talk in person. Especially when it comes to having discussions. 

I'm sorry. I suppose I could have taken my own advice and not bothered replying to you. I just have had bad experiences with trolls in the past.

It may seem a little bit uncomfortable now, but feel free to stop by my page whenever you'd like.

No bad blood here, friend. :hug:

Happy (late) Birthday! :)
I wish I had a present for you right now :(

I might be able to get a build of my Join Type test path effect working soon, though. Damn segfaults.

Can't say how soon, unfortunately. It could be a day, or 2 weeks.

In the meantime, you can see a preview here: (I had to move it into one file because of some linker error

The interesting stuff is at the bottom.

Hey! Thanks a lot! No need for a present! People acknowledging that I'm still alive is gift enough! XP As for the Join Types, I see you've posted a journal entry about them, so I'll totally go give them a look! :D

How are they? I know it's nothing special yet, but I've already made some improvements and plan to get Extrapolated Arc joins working very soon

It looks like it's working nicely! I only noticed a few oddities.

1) When I duplicate a path with the path effect on it, it doubles its width. Fixable though; you just need to reduce it again in the path effect options.
2) When selecting an arbitrary node on a path with the path effect on it, when using the Break Path at Selected Node option, the whole back end of the path dissappears as if you used a Mask on it. The path is still there, but invisible at the point where you broke the node and on.
3) Conversely to number 2, I can join the nodes of two paths (each with the path effect on them) just fine. When I try to join the nodes of a path with the path effect to a path without the path effect, the resultant path is just a regular path with no effect. This might be intentional, idk.

That's all I really tried so far. All in all, it's looking good! :D

Happy Birthday :). Another year, another experience of a lifetime.

Thank you very much! Quite a positive way to look at things! I'll try to apply that idea to my everyday life this year and see how it turns out! :XD:
