Quick Report: Getting The Artputer Going

1 Comment

I’m going to be devoting the next week or so to getting the “Artputer” fully active so I can make all kinds of cool stuff. It qualifies as a Clutter project because it involves me getting my work area going and some things I’ll have to do with the rest of the project days I have available. This week my project was getting it to minimum comic making status for my weekly comic. That included:

Quick Report: A New Laptop

The sticker I added. It says “my other computer is a time machine”.

The stimulus checks have allowed me to get a few things I needed. For example the Windows 10 desktop to replace the Vista desktop that died on me. With the latest round I was able to secure a new laptop. The XP laptop I have I’ve been using for my art desk, but the problem is thanks to a change in my primary comic and art software, the excellent Clip Studio Paint from Celesis (I highly recommend it for artists who find Photoshop restrictive as an art program, and even then you should try it out), has a new way of working its assets and now I can’t even update it. So I needed a Windows 10 laptop. Cheap because I don’t want to blow all the money I have since I still have no income to replace it and modern laptops have a built-in webcam, which I’d rather not deal with.

So I got a new computer, and this one doesn’t have a crack around the lid hinge that won’t let me close the top, which is another issue I have with my old XP laptop. Let me tell you about it real quick.

Returning To Things

Leave a comment

Well, I’m feeling okay…again…so it’s time to get back to work…again. Considering how many emails I didn’t get to read during these two sick leaves that was today’s project. I also checked out a new laptop for my aunt and something was wrong with it. My dad’s going to have to send it back and find her something else. So that didn’t go as planned.

Still I did manage to catch up on most of the emails I was behind on due to the sick leaves, so at least one victory was achieved. Wish I had more to report. Hopefully next week I can do a real project…before I get sick again.

The Clutter Of Sickness

“Sorry, Doctor Light. I’m sure that’s repairable.”

Hi. Just letting you know I haven’t disappeared. Remember that weird issue with gas, nausea, and other digestive nonsense I had at the start of February? Well, it hit again in March. Go back to my previous post to relive my frustration with how 2021 is staring out. So yeah, I haven’t gotten any clutter maintenance done the past few weeks. Also my email’s gotten filled up again so I’m going to try to at least get back to where I was before I got sick, after the last time I made going through my emailbox a priority. Surprisingly a lot of you liked that one. I guess everyone has to deal with that. It’s tough to read emails when you can’t keep your eyes open. I wish I had some new advice but I don’t. Hopefully we’ll get back up to speed on that one.

I’ll let you know when I get to clean or review something. It’ll be posted on this site so stay tuned. The project’s not done yet.
