I'm starting a PGCE (teacher training in mathematics) at the University of Hull. It will mean a complete change to my routine, as my old job was 6-10pm, but the course will be 9am-4pm. That actually leaves me roughly the same amount of free time, since it took over an hour each way to travel to and from my workplace. I just don't know yet how the change will affect my productivity. I hope I will still have some time for Lemmings and Lix, and I will definitely still be in the chat in the evenings.

I'll be away for a day and it could be that I'll start the next voting round a bit later as a cause. ;P

But I should be back tomorrow evening. :)

I've been spending way too much time on my computer lately. I'm going to quit cold turkey until I can get some better self-control, so I'll be disappearing from the forum indefinitely.

…and following nin10doadict will be myself.

I don't like how my opinions conflict with others on here so I'm taking my leave as well.
I have tried different approaches but it seems to be the same old, same old no matter what I do.

I don't know when I'll be back if I come back.
Don't tell me solutions to levels which I have not solved.

Lemmings: Gotta Go Fast - My NEW (in development) Sonic tileset dedicated level pack :)
SEB Lems - My first level pack (175 levels)
Flopsy's Youtube Channel - Watch Lemmings videos/streams with live commentary
Flopsy's Sonic Graphic Sets - Download Neo Lemmix compatible Sonic tilesets.

Good luck, Flopsy and nin10doadict! :thumbsup:

I mentioned in another thread, that I wanted to work an both the shimmer and the pickup-sprite-change/skill reordering this week. However real life got in the way and now I have far less time to work on this than I thought (which also explains why I will be less active in IRC for the next one or two weeks).
I still hope to get at least some experimental version with the shimmier done, but nothing guaranteed...

No problem, Nepster, don't rush it! :) The longer it takes to get the shimmier working, the more time I have for converting Lemmings World Tour - I don't want to fix backroutes in both format versions separately... :D

I should post here more often; but anyways;
I haven't been around (thus immediately aware of things) for several weeks now and likely won't be for at least a little while yet. My family has a ton of health problems which are ever increasing and dealing with that takes up all my time. And I have my own recent mysterious health problems to deal with as well.

I hope everything works out for everyone in the end.

I'm taking my computer to be fixed this weekend and I'm not sure how long it will take so I might not be on the forums for a while. I can still receive and answer PMs via my phone though :)

Well that didn't take long at all. That strange static sound that many people heard on my first stream coming from my computer is now gone :)

I've still been doing the volunteering, get to meet a lot of nice people, a lot of patients at the hospital are really friendly  and it's good to have a little chat with them when we are going round the wards with the trolley. I remember once or twice the fridge in the shop was not working so the soft drinks and everything ended up being warm instead of ice cold. Lots of complaints (lol)

I've still been a regular on the voicemails with the prank call community. Seems to be a hobby of mine at the moment.

I've actually been making a lemmings pack as well, I'm hoping for about 80 levels but I'll see how that goes.

Well, I've given my computer a rest for about a month now. I think I've improved a bit as far as my self-control goes. I think I'll give it another week or so and see how I feel. If it goes well, I may be returning to the forums soon.

Seems I've missed a few things... Hopefully it gets better for those who are struggling.
