Just got back from a Dutch Dash ferry trip. Before anyone asks it was one of those sorts of trips. I went with my son and girlfriend, had a great day in the Rijks museum and generally enjoyed the fortunately warm weather.
On our wanderings we stumbled across a little retro gamers store that had these old consoles on display including a Playstation running a demo of Doom :-) after we left I wondered if the shopkeeper was registered here.

Hooray! Kind of.
I'd been in a temporary promotion in my Local Authority for around 16 months that is presently due to end in April. However, I've just got a new permanent job at the same grade which means a bit more financial security for me even if it also means moving away from a great team into complete unknown territory.
The new job is to lead a team administering discretionary payments from a static budget for people in crisis. Bearing in mind the hard times expected ahead in the UK because of the Government's Welfare Reform plans it's shaping up to be a very challenging role...

It's my 31st birthday today. Happy birthday me.
Had some nice gifts so far including a PS3, new shoes and a squash raquet. If I don't get it I will treat myself to the BFG edition (please don't turn this thread into a FOV argument).
I've also indulged myself by releasing the second Hadephobia beta probably a little prematurely.

|...But I'm not very tech savvy. To be honest,I don't care too much about it's specs but the nightmare scenario would be being unable to run Doom as I know it now. My understanding is that most posts fix all but I'm not certain so... Is there anything I should avoid or keep in mind before I buy?|
|Maps by My 6 Year Old Son||February 28, 2012, 3:48 pm|
My boy Dylan started sketching out Doom maps on paper after I explained how I make levels. Encouraged by his enthusiasm I agreed to recreate his layouts in Doombuilder and let him pick things, flats, textures etc. I gave him only the minimal amount of guidance to make things playable so it's obviously very rough but I was more interested in what his untaught impulses would be. Here was the result:
Doom Station of the Devil
He's awesome at names :-)
It's a vanilla compatible Doom 2 MAP01 level. He's made another map but I'll post that some other time. He was 5 when he made this one but he's 6 now.
I'm interested in your thoughts. Dylan is more interested in your demos.
