Cool Circle of life ... time to close this one.

Hello buddies,

Iīve had a very good time with you guys. Much has happened in this year, many a friend have I got to know in this site, and many will still be.

Iīm writing this few words, since Iīve come to realize I no longer pursue an active 3d career. Quite sincerely, I havenīt used Maya in many a months. I believe I have a far better chance in the graphic design industry, and as such Iīm going to try to focus all my efforts into regaining and honing my creative eye.

Many thanks to many people, of whom I particularly remember; (In no particular order by the way)
  • BulletProof (Did you know the actual logo of Simplylightwave was created by him in a challenge run by me?)
    Darkon (Heīs a rocker dude)
    Roman (Terribly good friend of whom Iīve lost contact over time)
    K (Very good friend. His Andrea Gails animation tests are just a small thing to come from this great dude.)
    Mike (Dudeīs bright. Thatīs for sure)
    RageCGI (Donīt change buddy. Incredibly great guy. Frigging knows a lot about everything graphics related.)
    Kurt (Got that artistic flair, I know heīs gonna get far)
    HogwardsPotter (Best 2d to 3d ratio guy Iīve seen. :p)
    Danny (Man, now this guy knows Maya for sure. He loves partying too. If you want to laugh, be sure to catch one of his special webcam screenings.)
    DaveBaer (Incredibly great guy, didnīt have a chance to chat him up, but he sure does know what heīs doing when critiquing. Not for the faint of hearth though. By the way, his thesis proyect featured lotīs of us in the credits. Loved watching those credits roll. Thanks for that mate.)
    Darkware (One of the best critiquers around this place.)
    Nitroliq (Man, que te puedo decir? Still going to go for the WShark thing. Hopefully, we will meet again in the future. On the meantime, thanks for the very good times. Sure won a friend around this place.)
    M (Now this guy sure did work a frigging lot on those challenges. Spammed these forums for a while, but all around a nice guy.)
    Mumbojumbo_13 (If there is one bright kid in this place, itīs this guy. One of the few I can see making a very good career if he follows his passion with the same spirit he undertakes every project. Still remember him when he didnīt know jack about Maya. Probably knows more of it than I do now.)
    EagleKing (Very crazy dude. Would get depressed in a matter of seconds. Then be back to normal as if nothing happened. Donīt tell him jack about his cousin though .. he still thinks itīs a blapshemy. :p)
    Vectorman (Finished a particular independent film, some aliens killing some monocycle dudes. Very freaky stuff. The director was far more freaky though. He pushed on though, and showed me some lessons about staying focused on something. Wanted to battle me, guess thatīs one raincheck Iīm going to have to take. Very cool guy.)
    Tariqrf (Lol, flamed this guy to kingdome come. Hopefully he wonīt spam this place anymore. :p)
    Dragonfx (A newcomer, but a latin one. Hey, blood is blood. Cool guy, suerte con todo hermano.)
    Brian_ellebracht (Shit. He totally destroyed me in a flower battle. Still think itīs one of my best models to date. :p)
    GCastro (Guyīs one of the best dudes Iīve ever known. Period.)
    David (Damnit dude. I donīt know how you manage to code so much stuff, and still get drunk. EXCELLENT buddy. Trully excellent guy.)

And particularly to Kevin ... Many a times we had to chat over women, beer, trips, beer, trips, bitches, and some stories you wouldnīt even imagine. Lol. Guyīs one of the best dudes Iīve ever known in me life, and trully hope I get to meet up in some point of the future. Take care of the kiddo mate.

Many many a thanks to the people which make this a great thriving place to be. Please do enjoy the place. Donīt spoil it, be nice to new guys, and if youīre gonna fight, at least make sure you use the F word a lot. :p

Iīm stepping down as moderator, since quite sincerely I feel we need some fresh talent around this place. Will still post ocasionally, as SimplyCrack is not easy to overcome.

Have fun mates.
Live a great life in the process.

Yeah, Adl. You can't go!

Everyone has their ups and downs. Hell, I was about to call it quits couple of months ago. But here I am, stronger than ever

"If it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger."

Take your time off and unplug. I'm sure you'll be back

NOOOOOO! Shame to hear that you're leaving Maya behind. I haven't touched it for several months either. I haven't really had much time for it, around moving interstate and at the moment highschool is a little bit of a strain.

One thing you taught me is the value of placing advertisements for threads in your signature. It was that that pulled me into the first ever SM tournament that M ran (hmmm, as I recall you forfeited to George).

But anyway, good luck with your move back to graphic design. You do have a pretty sharp creative eye and I hope all goes well in the future for you.

it is indeed a sad day in the life of SM!

I know Mr adl has said a thing or 2 that may have caused unrest but..... He has a big heart and has been part of this place for so long.

I personally got on with him like a best mate, we shared the same sense of humor and the things I found funny - so did he and vice versa! I could read him like a book and he could me...so this is a big wrench in my heart

I had a good chat with Adl today, we bull shitted some and chatted about some issues, laughed and said our farewares regarding the sm site - I had a lump in my throat and felt very sad at losing such a cool guy.

We have both promised to keep in touch and we WILL meet up some time as we have both planned.... we will also chat as much as time permits on msn chat. But Sm will never be the same again as he was the guy whos posts I always read and looked for... Now I dont have time to use maya and manly use the board as a "chat area" he kept it alive and fun! Sure at times he was a miserable old sod and went over the top, but I to have done this on many occassions - its part of life! You get involved in chat and emotions arise, so some things are said out of turn but I can assure you all that this guy is a big teddy bear with the heart the size of a someone with Elephantitis.

I do hope he calls in to visit and I will keep him open as a moderator so he can access the mods area as he is always welcome.

So brother.... good luck in your graphics and I understand your reasons in your decision.

Take care

Kevin

Nooooo dont go! Just unplug and commie back!...Well if you dont, we all understand. Good luck on your graphic design industry..though you CAN use Maya with that industry at the same time You never know, youre animating a simple box and then all the sudden you see a pose of it and hmMM, that looks like a cool design to do on paper But good luck man. Hope you come back!
