Just finished programming job (well, I wasn't paid, so "job??") for which I had to buy MS Visual Studio. That was a chunk of change. Prefer Borland but has become too difficult to integrate with MS stuff (directx, etc.).
Getting back in a small way to HL, mostly continuing my first-ever HL map. Working on level 3 at present.
Just noticed I'm coming up on two years hanging around TWHL. wow.
