(Carrie and Andy arrive at the TEC Land Amusement park)
CARRIE TEC Land! What a great idea.
ANDY Yup, Tomorrow’s Experimental Community Theme Park.
ANDY This place has everything, prototypes of all the latest technology, cultural experiences from around the world and great rides.
CARRIE It’s just nice to have you off work so I can spend a whole day with you.
ANDY That’s right, a nice relaxing day of fun.
(Richard and Madrid walk past Carrie and Andy without either group spotting the other.)
MADRID and CARRIE What could possibly go wrong?
January 7th, comics will return to REGULARLY scheduled updating. That is, twice a week. There will be Wednesday updates this week, but not on Christmas. My husband and daughter are on break for two weeks for Christmas.
2013 started out well, but it went downhill from there in many ways. My intention was to upgrade my equipment by purchasing a Yiynova and I GOT it! Thank you! Unfortunately, my laptop had been giving me trouble and in September was replaced… by a unit lacking a wacom digitizer. This was a horrible, horrible thing that HP did to me. :/ I depended on my laptop for lots of inking and other work and since we share a computer, I can’t always be at it and it was stressing me out to the point that I tried to make as much use of it as I could to do inking and comics, that I had less time for actual penciling so now I’m OUT of penciled pages! I also couldn’t get to any commissions. :/ (Stressing over stupid things also interrupts workflow. 9.9 I was stupidly anxious for no real reason.)
I did NOT want to buy a new laptop this year. I got the Yiynova. I planned on this for next year, but when it looked like I was going to, I kind of dug in that this time, I want a NICE laptop.
In the end, as in, this weekend, I just gave up on getting a nice new tablet pc, the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga, i7, 8 gigs of RAM with a 12’5″ WACOM screen. In preparation, I cleared off a part of my table and after yet another in a string of obvious scammer offers for my laptop, just gave up and began installing most of what I need on it. I’m not happy about it, but it works ok hooked up to the Yiynova in the bedroom on my desk, so I can stream again. It took over a day to install everything and transfer everything.
I hope I kill it.
