Well, it's 1:30 am and I have to wake up early tomorrow. God bless coffee...in advance.

Wanted to make a more nebula-looking fire in this one, making it look more cosmic and psychedelic.

Adobe Photoshop CS2 (which I own a legal copy of)
Wacom Tablet (which I was gifted by my uncle)
CGTextures.com (which I am a member of)
Macromedia Flash 8 (which I purchased an upgrade copy of...used, but the pin still works)

Yeah, got in a little rough and tumble with somebody regarding software piracy. I would like to emphasize that I put my money where my mouth is, and saved up money for years to purchase 2005-era software. Just have to say that I normally don't mind pirates, but it pisses me off to no end when pirates pretend that their activity is completely legal and justified.

No, have some shame ya' cheap ninnies. If you pirate shit, stop flaunting it about like what you do ISN'T ACTUALLY A FELONY AND COULD LAND YOU A FINE AND JAIL SENTENCE THAT OBLITERATES YOUR LIFE. Bragging about committing felonies? You idiots.

Don't brag about it. Don't be proud about it. Don't recommend other people do it. Otherwise you're just a pompous egocentric dick who thinks they're so untouchable they can throw little pride parades for themselves and cry about how they're victimized for being THIEVES. Christ. What is WRONG with people on the Internet, geez!

Shoulda just made that a journal entry. Oh well. 1:45 am now. Doesn't make my alarm clock jump any further forward.

COMMENTS APPRECIATED! Criticism honored...just like your honest patronage.

Please, it's late and I need to vent. Keep comments focused on the work. I don't want MORE pirates coming here to explain to me that I'm wrong for disliking the ilk that obliterated PC gaming for the contemporary generation of players and developers. 80% Modern Warfare piracy rate. You're proud of that number? Gah, no comments on that. No comments. If you're so pent up that you think I'm wrong, note me please, thanks.

Thanks. I'll keep pushin' on at work. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else right now (okay, maybe same project, but at a beach-front campus, that would rule). But the way things are going, I've just gotta keep on clamoring up the proverbial brick wall of the Employment Castle.

It's almost midnight, I'm entitled to some awful metaphorical analogies at this hour. :lol:

Heh, damn right. Which reminds me...why do I let things people say over the Internet get me down?

Oh wait, right, because these are pirates, and their activity transcends the bounds of the Internet in ways that hurt my job security. Idiots, I can ignore. People who steal the stuff I've worked on? They can go die in a fire.

Thanks! Details are coming in, and while it's unfortunate that 200 of my industry comrades are now out of work, specialized in a skill specific to jobs that aren't available anywhere in California, it presses me to work harder at my own job to not look so expendable.

I've seen a lot of good people get let go, many of them were people I sat next to, growing to enjoy their company every day, their presence making work life so much easier, and it really takes a huge chunk out of me to see them get the boot. It's like making your own desktop lava lamp during your breaks and lunch hours, and right when its working and totally cool, somebody accidentally knocks it off the table. It's that kind of feeling. Nobody to blame, nobody at fault, but a lot of tough feelings. I swear, every time that happened, I could feel another two years of my life span floating away, it really gets to me that much.

But thanks. Fortunately they are under a different publisher than me, but its still sobering to see that the video games industry isn't at all recession proof. Something I've known for a very long time, honestly, but still got me close to home this year in particular.

Oh forgot to mention, I'm a little depressed tonight because of the closing of Pandemic Studios. I know a lot of good people who worked there, and have always appreciated their portfolio.

EA has dropped them as a part of their restructuring campaign. I just hope somebody else grabs them, and keeps their talent contributing proactively to the industry.
