Next I need to figure out how to use the models and rigs in Godot. I get the basic imports, but I don't quite understand memory optimization and such which feels important as I start to build out and have a scene with more than two or three objects.

I finished up the basic tutorial videos for blender. I think I basically get the fundamentals of the software. I need a mouse and maybe a better computer though. My poor little 10 year old computer really struggled with basic operations, and I finally found a situation where trackpoint is not preferable.

sometimes I want to report something on here, but then I remember I'm on a single user instance and I can just do what needs done. Still, sometimes I just want to report something to someone to be like "do you see this shit?"
