However, whether this is the null pointer which was causing the majority of the server crashes in the last week or not, remains to be seen. I'm not going to touch the server for the next little while until I get more crash data (or a lack of it) from the live server. So, we shall see.
So, Black Friday got me again. As it does every year. I spent money I didn't have on things I couldn't afford, but... I will consider it a good investment. I bought Substance Designer and Painter 2018, and Marmoset Toolbag 3. It's been a few versions since I updated my Substance things... and generally, I mostly use 3D Coat for textures, but it's always good to keep up on trends.
