I mostly post fan art of series I'm currently enjoying, along with the occasional text piece. Sometimes, I even write reviews about things. Or else I might post random photos of me attempting to cosplay.
Hnn… ah, sorry for getting to this a bit late. My sleep schedule and activity has been all over the place with then past two days. The good news is— I talked to my friend and gave him the details, and he’s a total sweetheart over it, told me to take my time and such— that he could give two shits about the deadline, just that I owe him a picture before hes’ six foot under. Which… well, it’s the thought, no? Though I am hellbent on finishing this project by the end of the year.
On addition… after doing about an hours worth of digging into threads and other various issues with SAI help desk and FAQ forums, I found out a temporary fix to my issue. Apparently when my computer defragged, it offset my save folder from where my SAI can pull and exist. So… I literately, all I had to do was force a new canvas, open a secondary from my picture files (not desktop, nor my SAI-saves folder, apparently… these two didn’t “exist” at the time), then save the blank canvas into my pictures with the secondary up acting as this sort of temporary bridge to say, “yes, this place exist. You can pull and save things here”. Ever since I did that, I have been able to open files and save like previous, be it the desk top, pictures, private files, etc. I don’t quite understand it myself… but… hey, it’s working.
I know well enough, that in terms of 2014 my computer is rather outdated. It’s a 2007 desktop model with several hand-me-down upgrades from my fathers’ PC as he updates on occasion. Though I also found out that, the slowness had a lot to deal with background programs running— which after I shut them down permanently and rebooted, it runs much smoother (again). I think for now, I’m in the clear until I can dump maybe $700-1k for a future upgrade; which I’ll be saving up for slowly but surely after I get my license and car situation pulled through.
Oh good, sounds like nothing a little google search can’t fix~ (believe me, troubleshooting computer software/equipment shit for work…I wanted to kill somebody by the end of the day, and when it -finally- started working I had no idea why other than really, computers can be really stupid). And yeah, honestly, most of my commissions from people I get months later. As in, 3-4 months later. Which is pretty normal I think, given how unless you are a full-time professional artist things take time.
—; So frustrated… very frustrated… frustrateddd… As of late, I’ve realized that my PC has been acting a bit wonky. I’ve finally got around to the defragment process and such last night— so I’ve literately done everything this week to help the processor and organize my shit, aside from wipe my entire drive which I’m not at all fond of. Today, I try to load up SAI to work on some edits, which, mind you in connected via my external drive. It’s where I keep all of my important programs that I often take around with me to other net sources, such as SAI for drawing, Vegas for videos, blabla.
I cannot open a fucking file.
It keeps giving me the error, “Folder not exist or access denied.” And that’s before I can even select something to import. That’s when I click the fucking open button. However, drag and drop still works, cool.
I cannot fucking save.
At all. In no format, what so ever. I cannot save anything. This has genuinely fucked my ability to save any edits, make progress on any commissions, or do ANYTHING productive dealing with it. I’m both extremely frustrated, in panic (I have a commission I’ve been steadily working on that’s expected by the end of this month), and have no idea what the fuck to do.
I… ughhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHH. I’m going to try to go to the website… see if I can remember my log in shit and possibly get a link to the download file, and just reinstall to my harddrive, maybe… that’s how that works, right? I know other bought programs work that way (FRAPs)… ughhh I just want one, solid, neutral Saturday. It’s been so damn long since I’ve had even the slightest neutral weekend and it’s really clawing the remains of my patience.
Oh dear; unfortunately I don’t know how much help I can be because I’ve been a Mac person since before Macs were ‘hipster’…but it sounds like your PC might be on its…teetering legs? I know my old laptop, before I finally caved and bought a new one (because my boss was kinda like, ‘you should get a new one for work’) was getting really, reeeaally slow to the point where it was nearly unusable. Also, my desktop is starting to have the same issue of slowing down and the fans whirr really loud and the screen flickers whenever it tries to dim because I don’t think the lights work that well anymore. (I’m scared that one day I will turn on the computer and the display will just die).
It sounds like your programs/files are in the cloud? Though, if your external is still working I’d say that’s still most important—nothing worse than losing your actual files…though I can definitely sympathize with being unable to save. I don’t suppose you can temporarily borrow someone else’s computer for the time being, or use a public-access one like a library? Needing SAI might be a problem, but sometimes, in a pinch, I’ve used the site http://apps.pixlr.com/editor/ when I needed to edit but didn’t have Photoshop. Not sure what formats they accept, but…? Don’t panic about your commissions, I mean, technical issues happen, I don’t think your friend’s gonna hold you out just because you’re having PC issues…things happen.
Out of curiosity, what’s your setup like? Hardware, OS…
Wow. After 25 episodes, aka twenty-five friggin’ weeks, ‘Majin Bone’ is finally starting to get somewhere interesting. Yeah it’s still laughably predictable and shallow, but it’s still pretty entertaining and funny. Humor is this series’ main selling point for me.
That, and it’s kinda funny seeing the 3D models during the fight scenes, when they’re actually NOT fighting and just attempt to talk normally, complete with slightly over-exaggerated hand gestures. There’s something very amusing about it.
I will say that I kinda like the introduction of more ‘villains’ and the interesting turn of ‘villains that aren’t really villains’. Also the ‘traitor’…actually did not really see that coming. I suppose they did a decent job of explaining the whole ‘Primordial Majin’ concept more, as well as just what exactly the Bones are.
On that note, I can’t find the second ending song anywhere, “Blue Destiny” by Koyuki Takeno. Shame.
