Laptop Problems and Upcoming Delays

Well. I’ve spent most of the last few hours freaking out about my laptop’s constant and growing list of issues. It finally reached the point of not connecting to the internet with the patch cable plugged into the router. The wifi has been increasingly unreliable for the last two weeks, so I used a patch cable to make it sync and keep it working.

Internet came back after some rebooting and trying my best to keep it cool, but this completely ruins my plans. I was going to run an indiegogo to get a Yiynova so I could send the laptop off to be repaired and not have updates interrupted. Problems yesterday made me add it to the current Indiegogo I have running for a plush toy. So I could get it done asap. Then I figured, if it fails, I’ll do that seperate one… but today? Well, everything went wrong. I managed to get the connection to work, but it’s unreliable, so quickly logged my request to HP, who responded back quickly that since it’s a continuing problem, they want to bring it in for repairs.

So right now, I’m scrambling to pencil and ink as many pages as I can on it. There will be delays depending on when the packing materials get to me. I’m not sure if this is good or bad timing. Kim’s off to camp Moss (Yay, free camp for cardiac kids!) next week. I can’t work while she’s here and had planned a lot of catchup work. 🙁 Even if I abused a credit card, which I’m not willing to, the Yiynova would likely not arrive until after the laptop is repaired. 😛 So I’m just warning, possibility of no new updates in the next couple of weeks or very limited ones. I’m just not prepared to do comics by hand or have the things I need.

The only good thing about this is that the laptop won’t be frustrating me once they fix it and get it back to me. 😀

Broken Glasses = Unfinished Updates

On Friday, I had two pages of Abby’s Agency on my desktop to be colored. I adjusted my glasses and they bent in half. I knew they were going to. I had seen a tiny crase in the metal several days before, but had hoped that they would hold as long as I was careful with them. They didn’t. i WENT TO wALMART WHERE i GOT THEM FROM AND THE FRAMES ARE DISCONTINUED. :/ aND THE LENSES COULD NOT FIT IN ANY OTHER GLASSES AS THEY WERE A VERY UNIQUE SHAPE. 🙁 aND THEY WOULDN’T LET ME ORDER NEW GLASSES OFF MY PERSCRIPTION BECAUSE IT WAS OVER TWO YEARS OLD. 🙁 🙁 tHEY WOULDN’T EVEN LET ME HAVE contacts. 🙁 But they did recommend I take them to a local jewelers to see if they could repair them, so I took them in and was told I’d get them back Saturday mrniing. Fine. I can still get stuff done. Hours and hours into Saturday and two phone calls later, I was finally informed at 6:30 pm that they would not be ready until Monday because the frames needed to be rebuilt. 🙁 🙁 So ALL of my work is sitting in a half finished state and I gave up. I’m typing this on the desktop, because it’s easier on my eyes than the laptop and my Note won’t let me log into wordpress for some bizarre reason I haven’t figured out yet. 😀 I’ll figure it out! Just not today. I can’t see the letters at all and I know I just typed a bunch of sentences with caps lock on. :/ D’oh. No updates this week. They WILL go up next week.
