_Brachiosaurus_ the Passable

Good enough! Let's Go!

What Will Be Done

My decision as it now stands: I'm stayin' the course. I still feel I need to commit to more rigorous improvements in my art, and I need to do it soon.

Since there have been a few recommendations along the technical I've received from strangers, I want to make something clear: the SGI is my last computer. I intend to use it until I no longer can upgrade/repair it, something to be treated as a perfect brush.

Part of the reason is that this is what I know. The larger part is that I simply don't want to be stuck using and maintaining mediocrity for the the rest of my professional life. Learning a new OS is, from my perspective, a waste of time. The old hardware and software still works, and works as if it were new, and I have never had an occasion to throw away a perfectly usable brush.

(Then again, no brush has ever frustrated me like a computer manages...)

So. I'm back.

This Blog is Broken [update: or not]

As you can see, none of my images are loading at all anymore. This may be the death knell for this journal until I can find something which will frakking work.

The days of straight html (and none of this database-driven shite) really were better for my needs.

Computers really suck lately.

[Update: the minor stuff seems to be working again, but the main site I host all my images on is still down, down, down.]

Ad astra per luna.

I'm tardy in getting this up, but this is relevant to some work I did recently (movies currently available through Team Phoenicia's site), and is important.

Currently, there is a donation drive up for the project.

Team Phoenicia's blog has been added to the blogroll: Go Go Rocketship _Team Phoenicia_ Go!

Gone Missing from the Edge

Sunday (3 August 2008), a friend died. He was battling cancer, and had been diagnosed very recently. Now, it looks like the battle's over before it had a chance to begin.

Jeff had the capacity to explain things so well that even I could understand him.

In spite of the foreknowledge of his health, this is very sudden, and I won't pretend to be anything but frustrated and a little exhausted by this news (even coming as it does on the heels of a frustrating and exhausting weekend). You can get an inkling of how cool Jeff was by reading his Wikipedia entry.

Every time I had a conversation with Jeff, I learned something awesome, something important, or something cool, usually in combination.

He will be missed.
