Howdy Thar! (bbcc Entry)
Well hi Guyz!
My, it's been so long, I don't quite know what to say... BBCC Entry perhaps?
Basically, I just popped on BZPower last Thursday out of curiosity (because I hadn't been on in a good while) and checked the BBC Forum for a contest. Sure enough, #56 was under way and I found the theme intriguing. I checked the deadline, and found out that (what-do-ya-know) it was three days away. I dropped the subject mentally and went on my way. Well, on Friday I got sick (nasty sick, I won't go into it), so I had a whole bunch of spare time on Saturday (and low energy too) which motivated me to try a doodle MoC for the contest. I actually had the "railing" for this thing already built; I was originally going to make some sort of serpent-like beast out of it. I then got the roller coaster idea, added a bunch of red and blue pins, build the cars, and added the supports. It's not overly complicated, but I thought I'd enter for the fun of it. And hey, who says an entry has to be overly complicated to get far (or for that matter, it doesn't have to be a huge beast or an awesome looking humanoid). I'd love your thoughts (no matter how small) on my latest doodle.
As to my other project, it's kinda got the pause button pushed on it at the moment; Come Christmas-time I'm sure I'll pick it back up again. I find it amusing that this is exactly what happened last year with Skotraxx; I started in the summer, finished in January. As I think I've said before, my BZPower interest comes and goes in waves. I have two technological interests that take up a fair amount of time, and I can't do both simultaneously: BZPower/BIONICLE and video games. When I get bored with one, I switch to the other. School and LIFE also play a huge roll in limiting my time here (I'm sure that many of you know what I mean). All this to say, I still love BZPower, I just haven't had the time lately to build and thus not the time to enjoy the site. I have no idea when I'll be back on in earnest, but for now you can count on my presence during the contest period.
