I think it has a slave cylinder if it's 80's or newer, but I'm never sure because some cars still use drum breaks in the back and carburetors were used on new cars until the mid 90s and we still make manual transmissions.

It's weird, my car seriously just felt faster.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Christ.

Kids these days.

That was fun. Let me go over the highlights:

By the end of the two hours, I was covered in more drool than a bulldog's owner.

Some kid shit his pants while sitting on my lap.

And my favorite, a 10 year old making threats toward me if he didn't get his gift this Christmas.

God damn. Almost makes me wish I asked for pay.

Eh, it's December. What the hell?

It's not like I need much. I'm just going to buy this ultrabook I've been shooting for, than give some shit to charity or something.

Someone definitely deserves WAAAAAYYYY more than me.

Well, I managed to complete my animation quite a bit earlier than I thought I would (mostly because I decided to cut one rather large corner to get to the end of the song already), but I had to export it into two parts because my program kept freezing up each time I tried to export the whole thing in one go. :T

So, currently sending the two files to my friend so she can help me put them together, while she sends me a file that I need to burn with the rest of my projects into a CD. It's a waiting game at this point, since it's taking forever for the files to send.

I can already guess that I will not be sleeping anytime soon. >->

She wants to spend her final days giving affection so she can get an equal amount back before the end. THE SIGNS ARE ALIGNING!

And sorry to hear that Hiroko. Hope you at least get a few winks of sleep.

I haven't slept since writing my paper all last night and now I'm writing another one tonight

Same. To. Male. Yeah.

I've been awake almost 36 hours now.

I don't know how I managed that.

Was talking with friends earlier and almost forgot the word "forgot".

I'm going to bed.

Well. Almost literally nothing is working out.

My friend couldn't put the videos together. After another failed attempt to export the whole thing or try combining them myself on a new file, I decided to give up and simply post the two parts on Vimeo and burn them onto the CD with everything else--except THAT isn't working out, either, as Vimeo (after forcing my hand and making me pay $10 dollars to bypass the "weekly 500 MB limit" thing) crashed twice trying to upload those two parts, and, they won't even play properly once burned onto the CD.

So. Going to try splitting up the project into fourths, see if that does anything...but for now, suffice it to say, there was a lot of gross sobbing tonight.

Well, looks like this paper writing stretch has fucked up my inner clock.

I knew something was wrong. Turns out my mother caught a weird scent when I went to my room and walked next to her, so now she's highly suspicious of my weed habits and will be probably stalking me to see what I do and how I behave. I don't specially give a fuck but last time she almost kicked me out of the house, so i'm a wee bit nervous.

Anyway guys that fucking suck. I'd wish i felt more empathy but i still feel the happy haze from having finished all my finals with decent notes, sorry. One thing though, from all that lack of sleep my pitch purple eyebags almost covered my entire eye area, i'm about 89% panda. I thought i'd get 100% before i finished my exams. :C

Hey hiroko when the file finally goes through i hope you can post a link here. xD

Alright then. Managed to pull something off with help from a classmate, so. I guess I'll post a thread with a link to it soon.

I wonder if steam would do software sales? Game maker studio at 99 bucks is too high a price to pay.
