    Default I'm baaaack...

    Just thought I'd start a thread to say "hi".

    Some old-timers might remember me as I was an active participant/moderator in the years before 2010. I used to live here in Xara-Xara-Land. Then things got crazy with work and fun stuff like talking graphics took the back burner. Years flew by. I'm currently in the process of retiring from my career as an architect. I'm hopeful that I will get back into exercising my creative noodle with graphics. One thing I've been thinking is I'd like to get into painting and potentially use Xara to plan out paintings. (When retired a person can make time to plan -- something that was never done in my past artistic pursuits that were always more playing than serious pursuits).

    I'm going to have to look around the site here and see what old friends have been up to, and check out all the work of potential new friends!

    It's good to be back!

    In the dim recesses of my memory I seem to remember you.

    Thanks Guys!

    And it's my birthday today. 57 trips around the sun completed today. Odometer is at about 33,288,000,000 miles (53,580,000,000 km).

    Happy Birthday.

    You did forget the Earth's rotational speed adds another 368,000,000 miles if you've always been 45 deg North.
    Just sitting, you are travelling at Mach 1 Earth-wise and Sun-wise, 100 time faster.

    Sounds like a 'Flat Earth' graphics challenge is coming on... (I just say that because clearly we ain't moving at Mach 1 right now )
