Activity


In my previous journal entry, I wrote (somewhat tersely) that I'd be less active due to computer issues.

Here are the issues:
  1. DA is no longer Safe For Work, so the best-performing computer that I have access to cannot be used.  That eliminates 30 minutes of DA per day.  And, yes, I have the setting "Block Mature Content" set, but that's not the problem.
  2. The second-best performing computer is the family laptop, which my daughter uses for schoolwork.
  3. The next most modern computer is not reliable.  For example, I was using it last night to access DA, and it shut down unexpectedly due to overheating.  And I had it on "Balanced" setting.  It also doesn't start up reliably, especially in cold weather.
  4. The desktop has out-dated software. With Windows 2000 Pro operating system, it cannot install newer browsers.  And the browsers it does have do not work well with DA.  This is true for the library computers I sometimes use, too.
  5. The old Pentium III can run some bare-bones Linux flavors, but the Mozilla or IceCat browsers that come with them bog down when faced with complicated page rendering.

Yes, I do have four computers at home!

Well, I've ordered a new (refurbished) desktop that should eliminate the #4 problem.  Also, our daughter now has a tablet that she can use instead of the laptop for certain things, so #2 is less of a problem.

But with NaNoBloPo starting in Nov, I'll be spending my free time blogging.

Anyway, if you're still reading this... First of all, Thank You!  Second, I have about 8800 items in my message center, mostly Watched Deviations.  If there's a deviation you'd like me to see and fav, please Note me or e-mail me.
  • Mood: Bemused
  • Listening to: NRP
  • Reading: Courageous Dreaming
  • Eating: that which I shouldn't
  • Drinking: tea

I took this last year while on a hike.  I just noticed that it seems to have some potential.

Adjusted curves in The GIMP.

No problem at all. I normally submit a deviation and see how my watchers respond at first. After a day or two I then submit to relevant groups but if a group requests it early I'm flattered!  :nicetomeetyou:
