Long story short I broke my laptop. I tripped on the tablet cord and knocked it off my desk and onto the couch. Seriously about a foot drop onto a soft surface.
The good news: The tablet is fine, well as fine as it was before. It's still dying a slow death. Something is wrong with the cord that causes it to disconnect if I look at it funny. That being the case, I had put aside some money to replace it when it dies.
I've now re-purposed that fund to replace the laptop. See you in hell sticky M key.
The bad news: I have to rebuild the tablet fund. I hadn't backed up the harddrive since around the first week of February. Since the point in time my old external harddrive stopped wanting to accept new data. I put of replacing it because I'm unemployed and didn't want to devote much needed money to that.
Basically I bet against myself and lost.
The plan now is just to redo a bunch of work. Goodie.
But first I'm going to work on some new stuff and finished some older stuff. I don't want the first few things I do on my new computer to be
the last things I did on the old computer.
I also have 3,000 messages to catch up on. So that's the plan, make more art, catch up on messages.
You know, same old, same old.
P.S When I set up my new computer it wanted me to give it a name, for example 'Living room computer'. I christened it Watson.
Calling it Hal seemed like a bad idea.
