    That's probably a good idea. What do you use for your testing environment? I used to use XAMPP all the time but now I'm using WAMPServer.

    I use XAMPP. Never tried WAMPServer. What's the difference?

    The interface is a bit better with WAMP. The system tray icon has a nice menu that's more intuitive. Plus it has links to everything you'll need on the menu. Aside from that it's pretty much the same.

    I've tried EasyPHP once, but I would advice against using it. I was going to install Wordpress, but I couldn't get it to work for some reason. After a few hours of troubleshooting, I finally came to the realization that I had done nothing wrong, it just wouldn't work with easyPHP. With Wamp, I got the site up and running in a matter of minutes...

    I've tried EasyPHP as well and I had the same experience with it. I would definitely recommend staying away from it.

    Hi, Alex! That sounds really interesting. What programs do you work with? :)

    Hello, I'm barrissoffeefan

    and, if you hadn't noticed, I'm a super fan of Barriss Offee...or Aayla Secura, whichever!:p

    I LOVE Star Wars. Literally the best thing that ever happened to me!

    I enjoy writing fan fiction.

    I started building Star Trek (hiss! I know...) ships as 3D models in Maya. Build some short videos of them flying around. Mostly the classic ships from the 1975 Technical Manual.

    Then, when I needed a break, I built an R2, R3 (clear dome), R4 (cone head), and R5. Animated them a bit. Put in all the tools I could reliably find info on. Don't trust the DK books--too many inconsistencies and just plain mistakes.
    Have the models set up so I can build any color combo I want.

    I was wondering if anyone else had done that.

    Rendering out frames for my parade of droids animation. Hope it will be done this afternoon, but I've thought that before...
