Default Anyone still around?


It's nice to see the odd comment on here and a few wanting the place to return. I have no idea if these types of places still exist this many years on. It's been about 12 years since GI first went online!

What's everyone up to?

Me? I have two boys, 9 & 6, both in school and doing great. Working hard in a creative communications role and enjoying it. Playing loads of Xbox One (Ark: Survival Evolved is my current addiction) and more into video editing these days than graphics like we used to make.

Hi Marc! Thanks for the update! Glad to hear you're doing well!

I'm here! I still check GI daily.

I have one kiddo - she's 6 months old already - time flies. I'm a quality supervisor at the ol' chocolate factory which keeps me quite busy. Between house work, baby, work, and family time, I don't have much free time. My computer has also completely shat the bed - so there's currently no gaming going on for me (not that I'd have time anyway).
But, in the little time I have, I've become a bit of a triathlete. I'm running and cycling a ton (and swimming when I can - but my swim workouts are mostly just surf sessions). I've done a ton of running races this year and have a few more scheduled through the rest of the year.
So that's pretty much it!

Hey mate, noticed you're name was on the bottom all the time, I admire your dedication to GI

Nice to know you're doing well mate, even if you are busy, kids are great and wouldn't swap my two for the world.

I wish I was fit enough for any form of running, let alone a triathlon. I'm very unfit and heavier than I wish I was. Been on a keto diet (high fat, low carb) for the last 6-8 weeks and lost over 20 lbs so it's working for me. Slim RaMarcus here I come!

Funny this thread was just started as something tickled me to go on GI for the first time in a couple of months.
Crazy to hear you've popped out a little Glass, Glass.

As far as myself, 2 days ago was exactly a year since I started working at the current job. I write "tunes" for Mustangs. Basically reprogram the ECU to make the car go zoom zoom. I spend a lot of time hanging out on the dyno doing R&D and basically beating the crap out of cars. Also building my own car, R32 Nissan Skyline (the green one in the attached file). Guess that's my "kid" as that's where all my money is going to.
Also looking to buy a house soon and (still) finishing up school for computer science.

Hey Chris, good to hear you're well mate. The picture doesn't load for me, don't know if that's GI or just me as this is a new laptop.

Interesting job there though, it "sounds" great!

Nice, man! Yea I'm in decent shape at the moment. I was never in that bad of shape, but my endurance is definitely up there right now.
It feels good though, eh?

Good work! We bought the house last year. That'll soon become the thing you put all of your money into!

I stream most nights (UK time) on Twitch.tv/ramarcus if anyone ever wants to swing by and say hi. Happy to catch up with anyone and I'll drop by here more often now.

And if anyone plays Ark: Survival Evolved on Xbox One, I run a server (for over a year) on there and although it's UK only, I'll gladly let anyone here join: UKARKSERVER – XBOX ONE 247 – XBOX ONE ARK SERVER

Not sure it's worth doing anything with GI these days but it won't be going any where as it doesn't cost me much to keep it online.

Yea - there really aren't active boards anywhere. I'm a little active on one with a decent amount of activity - maybe like 20 posts a day?
But I doubt we could ever get the ol' gang all back together. Sounds like we've all moved on to bigger things.

What does the other site do that keeps it active? I don't mind doing a bit of work here but I can't support it like I did back in the day. Drop me a link to it via DM if you can.

There's just a small core group of people that post every day. Actually I feel like a majority of the members are older people - retired folks - that are half decent, and help some of the younger, newer members.
I'm still not that into the forum - people have really weird styles and stuff that is popular with designers on that board is stuff that I would have called 'gimmicky' 6 years ago. But it's somewhat active - I still enjoy giving cnc and attempting a SOTW here and there. I'll pm

yea - unfortunately I know nothing about vbulletin other than how to mod in forums - that's about it!
But I'm here if you need help. With my new role at work, I'm on the computer a lot more than I used to be - I have time here and there to check out the ol' forum.

Hmmm, what to do. Guildinn was always a weird name for a GFX site, it was just me reusing a URL from another project which never worked, it stuck and couldn't change! lol

Surprised to see people still kicking about on here. Congratulations on the kid Glass! Sounds like everyone is doing well which is good.

I graduated uni last summer and have been working as a civil servant for the courts since December. Planning on leaving the UK in November to spend a year teaching English in Taiwan - providing I've got the capital saved up by then!

No Status Update: Away creating my next GFX masterpiece!

LTP! Hey mate, great to hear you're doing well. Bit of a switch from the courts to teaching English abroad, sounds like a great experience.

Planning to take the kids abroad somewhere next year on holiday. First time for them and undecided where to go at the moment.
