where's my manners? i've been active here for a couple of 100 postings and not yet introduced myself. shocking. Hi guys My name is Steve Leworthy and i'm a 3d cgi artist living and working in the Cardiff area of South Wales in the UK. I'm a traditional Windows os user of 20 + years, and have only started using macs in the last 5. so now i get the best of both worlds. But, i so love Apple's hardware and mobile os too. I've got a 1st gen Touch with i adore, and am now awaiting delivery of my ipad2. (special pressy to myself). I'm a 30 something wannabe guitarist, artist and have a love of aviation. I live with my wife and 2 dogs about 5 mins walk from the beach and i drive a sporty Hyundai coupe. there we go, useless info nobody's interested in i bet ;p quick shameless plug to end my 'hello' thread - 3D and Architectural Visualisation - my web site. Displays my interest in 3d visualisation and most things 'techie'.
