    Sorry to ask such a silly question but where do I find the PDF to download it ?

    It's mostly been a fun twenty years or so but as someone wiser than me said (Gandalf?! ), this too shall pass.

    It's of Persian origin, apparently, but it's been appropriated by a lot of people, Gandalf not included As for the thanks, thank you for working tirelessly on the forum helping to illuminate people!

    Oh that's sad indeed. You and Deuce are probably the two at NT I had most time communicating with, especially Deuce, he helped me out many times. The only other i know there is Ken Nign.

    I really liked the way the docs were going. like many aspects of lightwave, there was a lot of bellyaching on the forum, but you guys made tons of improvements over the last couple years. Sad to see that it’s over.

    It is very sad to see such people leave the LW. All the same, something too strange is happening with the company. I don't want to think that someday I will have to change the LW for something else. But all these events are still alarming.
    Thank you Ben for your hard work! Good luck!

    So sad! Thanks for everything!

    Lightwave - one of the best pieces of IP that an owner let go down the toilet. I guess the Luxology boys had it right all along - a divorce.

    @Off, I still have an amazing scene you did that you kindly gave me (not sure where it is right now). It was an airship, I think? Very complex scene with loads of objects... @hypersuperduper Thanks, we were setting things up to make the docs context-sensitive soon, and so many other things. Gah.

    By the way, just because not all the names have been crossed out it doesn't mean there's anyone still developing LightWave. The other people in that engineering team have been deployed elsewhere.

    Bit late to this news, but is a great shame to hear that you're not working for NT anymore Ben.
    You've done a great job with the documentation over recent years, and it is a bit unnerving to hear about all the talented folks leavign and being reassigned.
