Looks like I'll be gift-making while about 40,000 feet in air.

 

 

In preparation for landing, please turn off all electronic devices.  And make sure your seat backs and tray tables are in their upright and locked positions.

Generally, the last version you PM is the one taken, so yes, you can send an update later. In fact, if you already got something but don't know if it will get improved later on, it's better to send it early and be sure there's something (while still having room for update).

So your giftee is a 'he' eh?

That narrows off a good 2+ people.

My gift is just about done. And it's awesome. And my giftee will agree. I mean, I did ART for it. Like, on a computer. Like, with technology. Wow. You all pretty much just watched a pig fly.

is she? I wasn't aware that it was a male? maybe xim is just an alias I used to throw Schler off my trail and confuse them. They are at any rate a very pretty humanoid.

Nowadays people use "they" as both singular and plural third-person pronoun (in English).   You see this on wiki.   But a few years ago (OK... many years ago) English had no gender-neutral singular third-person pronoun.   People used "he" when the gender was unknown.

 

Fortunately, my gift has nothing to do with grammar.   That would be boring.  So I'll save that idea for the next GMC Jam.  It's sure to be a winner.

You weren't nearly offensive enough.  You'll never succeed on the GMC that way.  :P

 

Back on topic

I had some time today, so I completely re-made my gift.    It was complete crap.  Now it's only partial crap.  That's 50% less crap.

Also, I hope everyone reviews/comments on their gift. I can't wait to see what my gifted has to say. :)

Woot dun dun dun (I'd do a music note but my computer isn't that cool)

So, now that I'm done, not saying that I made something on GM, but if I were to have would it be preferable to send the gmz or just an exe? Also, if there are people who didn't make their gifts, after I'm done beating them with a stick I have time I can do another. +2 for Finals week being OVER!

I hope that the recipient will like it, I put a lot of effort into it (and I also had some help from friends and family).

Grab them now and share the joy~!

(unless you're one of those people who have yet to get their gift; some I've yet to receive, some others need a bit pre-processing beforehand)

Please let me know if there are any issues with the site; porting things over and configuring the server has proven to be tricky.

I'm feeling very fortunate and extremely grateful for the awesome dozen+ music tracks.  Excellent stuff, and it instantly gave me a new game idea!  Thank you very so much and more, Secret Santa!  I can't even guess at who you are, but you are a great musician.  Merry Christmas!
