I just couldn't help it... I know I've slacked off on the blog over the past couple days, I think it'll become a once-a-week thing.
However, I've been waiting for a good RAGEPOST to include in a blog, and tonight I found one. So this mini blog is about just that post.
It took me like four tries to read this post, so its actually a combination of a RAGEPOST and THE TRANSLATOR... aka the RAGELATOR.
3.5 THE RAGELATOR

Well its pretty obvious that he wants to make a video... the caps lock tells the whole story there.
But, can it be translated?
Well, I was gonna try to break it down into sentences, but I can't. Its one giant sentence. There goes that idea.

Wow... just... wow.
The default vBulletin emoticons are obnoxious and make me want to strangle small furry animals with my bare hands until they are raw and bloodied.
So I've made new ones. I'd display them here separately, but the forums software limits me to 10 images per blog post. :|
In addition, two animated ones:
Anything important I missed?
EDIT: Further stupid emoticons
Bang Head :banghead:

1. SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY
2. THE TRANSLATOR
Hi leute ich hab ein kleines Problemm ich kann seit dem ich das Löschflugzeug eingefügt habb die Wasserwerfer (Die Wasserstrahlen) nicht mehr sehen ich hab das löschflugzeug bereits entfernt aber es tut immer noch nicht . auch nach einer neu Instalation nicht
Hi I have a clean problem with the Liebherr crane falling into the water. (DIE WATER). Last night I drove the Liebherr into the lake and it suddenly became night time. Good night I'm busy installing.
3. RAGE POST OF THE DAY!!!11oneone
who banned me and why
New guy registers an account.
New guy clears cookies after visiting some *ahem* websites he shouldn't be.
New guy sees post about a vehicle he wants and quickly tries to reply "CAN I BETA TEST PLZ? I HAVE EXPERIENCE."
New guy instead gets message about being banned (this happens when you try to reply without being logged in).
And then it gets weird:
New guy LOGS IN (first hint that MAYBE YOU AREN'T BANNED)
New guy MAKES A POST (second hint that MAYBE YOU AREN'T BANNED)
4. SIR, YOUR CAR NEEDS TO BE BUSHED AND SET... PUSHED IN A BUSH AND SET ON FIRE
Gabe's '49 Ford sure looks like a fun car
TO CRUSH WITH A MONSTER TRUCK.
(Sorry Gabe, your vehicles crash and damage so well that its just as much fun to look at the damage that can be done to them as well as it is to drive them).
1. We need some kind of auto-image resizing here. Then again, my blog wouldn't be my blog without a giant image spanning the entire screen making the formatting go way out of wack.
2. IN OTHER NEWS:
The Invited section of the forum is on its usual "P***ING CHALLENGE" rampage:
since you always tend to complain
What the hell is your problem?
i do not really care about you b****ing around
get out of my threads and leave me alone.
I've got an attitude problem
Your attitude stinks.
I love a good drama thread.
Before others get involved into this or it results in an invited rampage...
LOL... its good entertainment at least.

This is a nice handy way of documenting my thoughts and ideas about my RoR projects.
After the recent flurry of talk in the forum about understeer and steering geometry, I decided to change my Tatum Buggy steering to feature the Ackerman angle. 3 nodes later, and the buggy feels much better. Steering feels more stable and understeer has been reduced considerably. Thanks Lifter, for the suggestion.
I've just spent 15mins looking for info about Caelum scripts (for my La Paz map) but I can't find anything that helps
I've been re-working the roads on La Paz to make them tighter and twistier. It's hard trying to visualise how a road will look on a 4km x 4km map, when you're drawing it in by hand in Photoshop with a 7px wide brush. It's getting better though, now the tracks are more challenging.
Things to do :- Alter the steering on my Firebug crawler to add ackerman angle, work on new buildings for La Paz, finish off suspension meshes for '37 Ford Rat Rod, add more trail runs to Riverbed... so much to do and so little time.

Disclaimer: While this post is based on a true story, embellishments may have been made in order to make the post more entertaining to a wider audience. Any similarities to any persons living or dead are purely coincidental and please don't sue me.
Throughout the years here at the Rigs of Rods forums, I have gone from stupid newbie to stupid invited member.
Through these times two things have remained constant: my level of immaturity in any given situation, and my avatar.
No, not the naked-blue-pagan-treehugging-hippie-communist avatar. :|
I mean the forums avatar.
When I tried to reupload it after the great forums switch of 2010, it told me this:
I thought to myself, "what?"
How could the forums do this to me? Doesn't it know who I am?
Enraged by the forum software's apparent lack of knowledge as to the hierarchy here at the forums, I tried uploading again. Again it failed to upload.
Panic began to set in. What will I do without my avatar? Would I suffer an e-identity crisis? How would it affect my productivity? Would I have to find a new avatar? Somehow the old backup avatar seemed a little dated.
Perhaps, I thought, other invited members might be sympathetic to my cause.
I posted a thread in the invited boards where I made the point that while it was nice and all to have an avatar size limit, it prevented me from using my avatar. This was clearly a violation of my right to free expression under the constitution of the United States, I stated. Furthermore, clearly if people can upload multi-megabyte image files to posts, then I can upload a 78 kilobyte avatar that loads once per page that I post in?
It was pointed out to me that the forums weren't hosted in the United States, and that you are being immature.
I countered by saying that I was always immature no matter what the situation, and that you have a poopyface anyway.
Rather unfortunately, this amazing feat of rhetoric proved to be too much for them as it sailed over their heads. They told me that my avatar was a distraction and too large and to change it.
While tdev did say that he increased the forums avatar size limit, for whatever reason I still cannot upload my avatar. I do not know how long it will be before I get my avatar back or whether it will happen at all.
Please show your support for the increase of the avatar size limit so that I can have my avatar back before I go insane and kill everyone. Thank you.

I've started this project more than 1 year ago and it's the first car model I build specifically for RoR (other model have been made for 1nsane). The G is a bit a "hello world" for me as I started 3D modelling with this car in Zmod a few years ago.
Well it starts to look like something so here is a collection of screenshots showing the development. Hope you'll like them
