I love my job now. Although they have me doing the lowliest of grunt at the moment its still 10 times better than being a library page. They have a refrigerator stocked with about 10 diff types of soda and a cabinet full of chips (fries for you brits) right now iv been assigned to look through all textures in the track directories than find buildings that have windows that need reflections. After that I make a mask for the box mapping and save out my images, edit this weird file that lacks an extension, and then rebuild the level file. Iv almost finished Talladega

oh, and they have nice bathrooms.

Hahaa Busted Mirthin - now we know you're country

Papyrus are famous for the Nasca series and being a subsiduary of Seirra Online... recent years though they've not really been making much of an impact.

Ya know i don't remember hearing any news of them in the past 2years thou.

great to hear your not just the office gofer thou, otherwise you'd be down the 7/11 getting more stuff

Actually, I've mentioned Scotland many a time, it's just that under location it doesn't have the choice of Scotland. I think. I'm proud to be Scottish.

hehee... well i'm proud to be English
ya know its kinda weird the rivalry between the english & scots, espcially the Gordies and Scots
I mean there is a deep seeded recentment on both sides, but its kinda civilised - hahaa

Ya know i thought a perfect example was that fight which was setup over the football teams with TXT messaging ... like 50guys from each supporting side setup a big ass fight in the middle of nowhere
truely classic, its like "yeah we hate you and we're gonna beat the crap outta you... everyone get out ya diaries and we'll find out when we're all next free for it "

Hey Mirthin, what part of Scotland are you form? - I'm from Fife (East coast, near Edinburgh) myself .

Vegeta, The Scots actually get on really well with northerners, now the southern softies!, everyone hates them (the northern English, the Scots, the Welsh, and the Irish). It's all sorta tongue in cheek though - like the Americans and Canadians.

Indi, cricket is a strickly English pastime, Scots have never seen the point of cricket, like the way they all drink tea and eat cakes at half time!. Can you imagine an old firm (Rangers v Celtic) football match where they put on a half time buffet? - it's madness I tell you!.

Van B, I'm located around Glasgow. It's true, I've never cared a wicket for cricket. Our national games include hammer throwing and caber tossing. Throwing big heavy objects around.

hey hey who you callin' a southern softie
don't make me come over there and ruffle your hair ol' man

football wasn't invented in england ... was however changed into the game you play today
god knows why the Yanks call it Soccer, i mean there aren't really socks involved - make more sense to called it Booter or something. I think the original name for it makes sense ...
One Round Ball, use your Foot only to kick it in to a goal!

now american football lets see ...
One Ball that looks like a Fat Man sat one it, you use your foo-erm no hands to run it past a line.

yeah i can understand why its called football (morons )
I never got cricket, i mean you hit the ball and run back 'n' forth - but your only allow to do it a certain number of times, you're padded to hell meaning if you get hit it doesn't hurt (what kinda sport is that!?)
lol and the scoring system confuses the hell outta me

like tennis really... musta been invented by someone who hates to loose, i mean think about it rather than the score going
1, 2, 3, Match Point
it goes 15, 30, 40, Match Point
and when it gets to 40 if you both have 40 someone has to hit it to get an advantage to be able to win!!
seriously you can picture the guy trying his hardest to win by making up those kinda rules

another one i'm not so sure about is rugby - i mean seems kinda backward ... if you want to pass you have to throw it behind, kinda defeats the whole point in running up the field if you ask me, like go 20yards to find out the closest persion is 15yards back and behind the defense lol

ho hum eh

They call football soccer because they already plagarized rugby and called it American Football. In the UK when we play rugby, we don't wear armour like wussies.
