Hello everyone,

A Very Happy New Year to you all !!

I don't know if anyone here wondered where have i been busy lately, as i last uploaded a few skins

for the WC Holiday Contest ... that was around Christmas.

Well, the good news is that I have custom built a new pc for myself as a new year gift,

the bad news " I've spent Rs.36,000 on it i,e approx. $700 U.S.D .... Lol ....

Though it was very urgent as i used to run out of memory on my 3 yr. old laptop while doing animations.

This will help me to create more and better stuff in less time apart from playing games and watching

movies.



System Specs -

Processor                       :    Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2320 CPU @ 3.00GHz

Any suggestions are welcome.

Amit Saran.

Suggestion:

Get busy skinning some of those great dreams, and I want to see you venture into making some WindowBlinds skins!

 

 

 

Oh yes... another suggestion: Have a great New Year and enjoy that computer!!!

I say call it "Shiva" - while being 'The Destroyer' of the old, Shiva is also 'The Creator'... of great new stuff!

Congrats on your new system. I built mine as well. There's something very satisfying about using things that you've built yourself. I hope it serves you well. Now let the .dreams begin!
