A couple days ago, my computer finally decided to die on me. I got it replaced, with a somewhat more powerful rig, even, but now I face the daunting task of moving a ton of data and setting up my tools again.
I'm pretty sure I'll be back on track soon. The upgrade came with Windows10, which positively scares me, but it also comes with more processing power, a better graphics card, and really good ventilation. No more blowdryer hardware!
I don't enjoy moving data but it's actually pretty cool to set up a new rig- you have the illusion of a fresh start, and I have a lot of stuff waiting for me once I'm don. There are three commissions waiting, and the Zodiac wallpapers, a certain wind-up doll is going to see the spotlights again, and I'll finally be able to play Borderlands 2 at more than 20fps!
Good times. Goooood times
