How's this neat project coming along? :) I have to say I can't wait to see the translations.
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

It's...

*looks at bitmap*

*ahem*

I'm still trying to work the damn letters into the proper spaces, blargh. Harder than it looks. (Not to mention I'm now in physical therapy twice a week for a blitzed wrist...) That PDF idea is starting to look better and better.

I haven't given up though, honest to dopefish.

Mmmmmmmmmrnph.

As much as I really hate to do this, and would rather not, I'm going to put this project officially on hold. My physical therapist is very cranky with me for overusing my wrist (to be fair, she's not wrong...) and has told me in No Uncertain Terms to cut back on what I do on the computer, the majority of my free time is being taken up by family illness issues, and what little free time I have after that is going towards a not-exactly-a-proper-translating-job that I've taken on because frankly no one else will do it. (At least it's fun.) I'm not sure when I'll be able to poke at this again, so while I'd love to just get it done with...well. Priorities. I've never quite been that good at those.

Many apologies, mates. But, project ain't dead. It's just sleeping for a while, honest guv.

Oh man, that's serious. Forget about this then - family and health come first, always, always, always.
Thanks for your update, and good luck with your situation. :)

Hang in there mate! Don't worry, you'll get better and then you'll be right back in the game :)

There's no need to push yourself, there are mods on this board that have been sitting the best part of a decade. We are not a fast-paced community, leave things until your life is better suited.
What you really need, not what you think you ought to want.
