Twiggy
Twiggy because it and Twi'lek start with the same 3 letters. No better reason. Also no better reason for her to be wearing jeans shorts than I thought it'd be cute to see a twi'lek girl wearing them.

So today is the 46th prelude to my 100th birthday. :D

Ok, so I failed. I was trying to submit this last night and didn't realize that I'd forgotten some steps and it was on hold until just now. My birthday was yesterday, the 12th of August. I was trying to submit this just before running off to play 4E D&D. Once again my kindly Drow Bard Morrigan nearly died in battle, but not quite.

As always: if you see something interesting please ask.

I found this series of photos and felt the need to share just for something completely different. :D

Nothing big here, just having some fun playing around with raw character concepts. I've been bouncing back and forth between Star Wars: Old Republic and Guild Wars 2. SWTOR opened up an expansion that they have been releasing piece-meal over the course of the year, with perhaps another year to finish it. It's entertaining because it's a rebellion-style story with an evil empire that the PC gets to dismantle one piece at a time, gaining new allies in the process, most of whom become Companion Characters you can take along on personal missions. My favorite of the original set is Vette, the cute blue Twi'lek with an attitude who is the Sith Warrior's first companion, and now anybody who finishes the story chapter introducing her can have her as a companion. GW2 opened up a new expansion called Heart of Thorns. Both games have added lots of new costuming which is cool.

Additionally today I concluded another battle against a stupid troll. Anyone interested can check out the comments on my front page - I included a link to the piece of art where it all started. The artist whose art was trashed with this little war is quite good and could use some love too.

As usual, I'm still working with DAZ2.3: Aiko3 and various stuff, if anything is interesting please ask.

No real story to this one other than she was supposed to include a link for some additional skins that had gone away before I remembered to go get them. The artist who did the character wanted to see a render. I think. I'm still a bit confused by our conversations. But here's a render of Zhymphelia in any case. Just a quick little fantasy piece to play with the character.

I'm still trying to get the main rendering machine (The Quad-Core)  up and running again. Mostly it just needs me to do some set-up work with DAZ again. Data Recovery contacted me, they are pretty sure they can recover my contends from my old Master HD from the Quad, the catch is it's going to cost close to $1k. O.O But there are around 2 years worth of DAZ scenes and stuff on it, which makes it worth that price - barely - maybe.

Ok, so maybe two months ago now my dual-core machine suddenly died. From how it was acting I took a guess that the video card fried, and after pulling it out and looking it over it looked like I was right. Last year when I bought the new card for my quad-core (so I could play DragonAge: Inquisition) I considered buying another identical card for the dual, but put it off. So the first thought was to go ahead with that plan. Then I decided that instead I'd buy a better card for the quad, and retrofit the card I got last year into the dual. So new card was ordered. Before it arrived, the quad started acting funky, I am running WinXP (still) on the dual, and Win7 on the quad - so I was getting constant reminders to take advantage of the free upgrade to Win10, but hating change I was hesitating until the last moment to do so. So then they announce "download your free Win10 now and install it later." - this sounded like a good plan to me, so I did it. And as soon as the download finishes, it starts the install. I stop it. When I reboot the quad later it wants me to restore the startup files. I do so, everything works. Win10 tries to install again, I stop it. Blue Screen. Repetitive Blue Screen each time I try to restart, attempting to run in safe mode to repair startup and the system just sits there doing nothing. Borked. So in order to have at least ONE of my computers working, I pull the video card from the quad and put it in the dual core. The new video card arrives after around ten days. My old power supply won't run it, it needs additional special connectors that the current power supply doesn't have. I order a new power supply that CAN run the new video card. We wait for that to arrive which it does after around ten days. Jim, my computer-savvy roommate installs everything. Windows does not work. Nothing he tries works. I order a new Hard Drive in the theory that maybe we can install Win7 on that and slave the old drive so I can get back at all my files - most especially the hundreds of unfinished scenes and finished renders waiting to be worked on. We wait another ten days for the new HD to arrive. Once it arrives Jim uses it to attempt to get at the old drive - nothing. Oddly enough it shows a section that I split off as a fake additional drive, but won't allow us to actually open it and see it's contents, but the main part of the drive is a complete ghost. Jim tries installing Linux to see if that could "see" the drive - nope. So now I'm mailing the drive off to Data Recovery Systems to see if they can recover my stuff. Also, the new drive I bought is a three-terabyte one, I thought that would be cool, but Jim warned me that the high-capacity drives run slower - by about 20% - so I don't want the new drive running as main. So I'm debating whether to buy ANOTHER drive that runs at normal speeds, or wait to see what happens with Data Recovery Systems.

In the mean time since my dual core took over doing everything except rendering there's so much on it that it can't render half as effectively as it used to do, but it's all I have to work with, so I'm puttering along with it.

And as near as I can tell, you can't run Skype on anything older than Win7 anymore. I've updated it several times but it won't let me log in - which is what it does when you are running an outdated version of Skype. So I can't chat with anyone.

On the plus side, I did finally drag myself to Force Awakens. I thought it came off as a pretty good homage to New Hope and the Star Wars we all loved. Now to wait until Ep8.

Anybody else having any fun?

Why are such an angry person? I tried to end the argument, but now youre making alternate accounts to harass me via Private messaging because I blocked you? I'm not attracted to you, please stop messaging me.

You tried to end the argument by calling me names, claiming you are my better, and insisting that you'll get in the last word? And leaving you a public comment just like this isn't a PM. And this didn't happen because you blocked me, but because I kept blocking you and you kept creating new accounts just like this one to keep it going. If you checked my alternate account it's five years old. catspaw82.deviantart.com/ This has nothing to do with attraction, this has to do with your harassing me over a nice comment I left on a piece of art in somebody else's gallery. leaf98k.deviantart.com/art/Sis… People who call me a mongoloid aren't high in my list of people to be romantically interested in, so you have no fear of that.
