Maya / Re: Extruding.....

As well as having the polygon on faces mode, make sure you have the faces selected that you wish to extrude before extruding :) The manipulator should then show up on the selected faces and it will allow you to do a combo of move, scale and rotating. Hope that helps :)

PC / Re: I need a new computer...

After a day of cooling down, my computer decided to work again! yay! well... the screen blacks out sometimes still... I think I will still be getting a new one because I don't want to risk this thing dying around assessment time :O

I looked it up and it was a problem with the toshiba portable models between '06 and '07, the GPU fails.

I talked to another friend (Who is also named Matt which is a bit weird lol) about that computer I was looking at and he said he wouldn't buy so I guess I'll keep hunting idk..

PC / I need a new computer...

Last night my computer decided to completely die, well the GPU fried for some reason. Replacing it will cost just about the same as a new computer because its a laptop and is integrated into the motherboard. So... I need a new computer, I'm thinking that getting a desktop pc would be best? Here's one that I had in mind

If you cant be bothered clicking the link here are some specs:

Intel(R) Pentium(R) Processor Q9400
(2.66GHz, 1333FSB, 6MB)

8GB (4X2GB) DDR2 800MHz SDRAM Memory

Nvidia Chipset 1GB 9400GT PCI-E Graphics card

1TB SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive with Native Command

For $949

Sound alright?

If anyone has any recommendations as to what they think I should get let me know because I would like to buy something soon so I can continue doing work. And no, I don't want a mac lol.  ;)

Hi everyone!  ;D I'm Gavin, a 1st year animation student from Deniliquin. I haven't really done any 2D animation before, but I can't wait to start XD I've done some 3D stuff in a program called Wings3D, and enjoy it lots  :D It's like a very basic maya i suppose, it's free and about 30mb (i think) if anyone wants to try it out, google it! It's worth having a look at before going head first into Maya ;) Thanks for the warm welcome, i look foward to working with you all  :)
