FreeWrl wouldn’t compile. All my hopes and dreams have been dashed… I think I might just have a go at some 3D modelling instead, since I probably wouldn’t even have an audience for my worlds. Haven’t tried to get GDAM (mixing software) working again yet. Last time I did, I tried a million and one things in the config file, but got the same result EVERY TIME! One fix was even specifically for the computer I’m using, and even that didn’t work. I’m not sure I’ll even be able to do that much with it if I do get it working, because I only have one soundcard, and only the shitty internal microphone on my laptop. I suppose I could get a synthesizer program or something, or just mix the songs I have. Or, I could buy a cheap PC and an extra soundcard for it to act as the server. But probably not for a while.
I’ve been thinking recently about PCs. I think maybe they are a better option than macs, just because of the widespread availability of cheap hardware. I don’t know if I could even get a second soundcard for my desktop mac. It was always windows that kept me away from them, but now that linux has fixed that problem, what’s to stop me? I wouldn’t get a PC laptop though, because they’re ugly and noisy and heavy. I mean, fucking floppy drives like!
