Laptop Death

Sadly, my laptop is nearly dead after years of great service… I’m typing this on a USB keyboard, and the CD drive has had some sort of problem where it sometimes reverts its driver to PIO mode (instead of Ultra DMA), which eats up CPU cycles with needless hardware interrupts until I uninstall the driver and let it reinstall itself properly. This was a big pain in the ass to diagnose the first time! I think when I move I’ll be going back to a desktop solution.

Here’s a couple of paintings from the book project. As you can see I’m starting to put the final touches on them. It will definitely be nice to finally be finished so I can move on to the next idea! Other than that, since today I “pancake day” I suppose I’ll have to come up with something clever for supper.

    Did you see the movie Coraline???
    The animation is gorgeous, there is some off beat humor/belly laughs but there are a couple of scary parts. I highly recommend it.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
