I know I haven't been around much lately. I graduated with my Associates Degree in Information Technology and am starting my Bachelors Degree in Information Systems Security. That , experimenting with Linux (which I use exclusively now) and being sidetracked with my website caused me to put the RPG-I work on the back burner. But I'm back and I'm almost done with the Provisional Ranks.
On a related note, mtPaint makes it so much easier. I don't have to use 2 different programs in order to keep the resolution where it needs to be. If you want a good OS, use Ubuntu or Lubuntu.
