Me, I've learnt to play guitar, had to much coffee picked my nose and bugged people by posting idiot questions. How about you?

P.S I really think this is the true reason why animators have lots of silly toys to play with!

Currently "PANIC" when things don't work out right. Drink more coffee, get manic. Rattle the prodictive eigth ball to see if it knows the future & then collect myself to start again. Draw breath & ...

Remind myself that life is sweet whilst hitting F10 & pick up the guitar to start strumming an anoying tune. Remembering it will all work out in the end!:thumbsup:

Go yell at the staff :)

But, we have one machine set up as a render controller which runs two nodes during the day for test sequences and such, and all other machines run two nodes overnight, so we don't usually have too much render downtime.
