    I will be flying to copenhagen on august 3rd for a 3 month internship working on XXXXXXXXXXX.

    Also since that time is over the Unity Users Conference I will be there as well. I look forward to seeing all of the Unity guys, and cool people from the forum at Unite 2007.

    I'll post pictures while I am there if I have access to a camera.

    :D

    that's awesome that your parents are up for something like this - i'm sure both you OTEE will benefit nicely.

    Way to go Yoggy!

    I for one welcome our new particle expert overlord to our fine country

    But I will probably have to wait until October or 2.0 (whichever comes first) to find out what your top secret project at OTEE is all about. :)

    There is no one else, Forest, that I can think of more deserving of an opportunity like that than yourself. Given your enthusiasm and knowledge even before factoring in your age, it's a great opportunity and all of us here on the forums know that you'll really get a lot out of.

    And again, it shows the calibre of people we have to thank for Unity.

    This has made my day! big big round of applause for the bright young spark of bright sparks-I was actually thinking that this might and should happen...

    Your a really helpful dude Forest, and I value the help you've given me and others here. Be assured if you need my help for anything, I'm just a PM away...

    Your one of the people that gives big life to this forum. Good job OTEE.

    I mean, how good is this for all of us? :eek: :p :D 8) :D :) :wink:

    Thanks guys. I always appreciate the encouragement and in return I can promise some cool stuff when this is done. (though I can't tell ya what it is yet) :)

    I will probably do some touristing while there but I am also going to be working most of the time.

    The Little Mermaid statue is a *must*see*. :|



    Ok, no, it's not really that cool at all, but there is a lot to see so no worries there. With three months you have a great chance to get out of the city itself, something I have yet to do. The OTEE guys are great hosts and I'm sure you'll be well entertained while there.

    I've seen it. ;) Frankly I was more interested in Legoland at the time. Actually I guess I still am...building stuff is fun, whether it's plastic bricks or code. :) Denmark's a cool place.

    I don't know. It would be expensive and a hassle, but I may do it anyway if OTEE doesn't have a spare one I can use.

    I'm sure if you're not taking it, you can find someone to take it off your hands for the duration ;)

    Awesome news Forest and most deserving! Good luck in the DK!

    If you get a chance, check out the Danish Design Center. I found it very inspiring!
