Default OMG - Who Invited HIM Back

Well I have been away for a very very very long time. Due to personal stuff, work and the such I have decided that I will stick my toe back into the water of Maya and CG.

For those who remember me, I'm sorry

For those who don't have a clue who I am. HELLO!!!

To keep you up to date I am now a developer and no longer a support monkey. I have been a pro developer now for over 3 years after many years of hobbies stuff, I use PHP and Django with sprinkles of Flash/Actionscript, Sharepoint, CSS and jQuery/javascript. On other news the company I work for are merging and there may be chance for me to do some CGI work, which will be awesome.

So keep an eye out for me jumping on board the challenges and generally being annoying .

Oh, if anyone can point me in the direction of my winning entry for the Steampunk challenge many many many moons ago that would be great. I can't find it through searches and I can locate the final decision but no thread that shows the progress of the work.

Hello Chirone, long time no type. Yeah I'm a developer mostly on web with LAMP and Django and set to do my first Windows Phone 7 app soonish. Some Unix/Linux support but that's to be expected working in a lamp environment.

On that topic, if you want to say something is much better than something else would you say "miles better"?
