I am running on XP and the first time it happened was just after the initial massive download updates.
The second time was as I approached my hut on relto to open the door (twice)
I swiched off the download all ages at startup and I have not had the problem since.
I do consider myself part of the Guild of Writers kaelisebonrai so stop stiring! I don't give a toss what anybody thinks of me. I consider myself mature (as in an old cheese) enough that other peoples opinions voiced or otherwise aint gonna stop me using tools the've made.
For all I know Guido van Rossum may have said I am crazy and not a fit person to run a worm farm but it is not going to stop me using Python like wise Ton Roosendaal may have cast dispersions on my mother my flag my country and my beer but none of this will drag me off of Blender.
So put your opinions back in your trousers If you want to fester over them it's your perogative. I'm going to be busy working on my age and if you don't want to use Dustin's shard then don't use it but please don't make recomendations on the basis of your prejudices percieved or otherwise because being totally ignored and sidelined often offends.
