Hey everybody! I am sure you have all been wondering why the prints staff has been so quiet for the last year or so and what we are up to.
So, as an early Christmas present, the Prints staff has decided to break its vows of secrecy and silence, and reveal to you the mysteries of our department (rumors of which have echoed through the DA HQ halls for a long time now).
Since I took over as the Director of Prints last year, our first task was to evaluate the entire prints program, and identify the areas where we had problems as well as what we needed to do to improve things. Since then, we have undergone quite a few refinements, resolved a number of long term outstanding issues, and generally streamlined the entire operation.
Once that was all done, our next step was to look forward and figure out how to make the best prints program on the planet…both for artists that have art and want to sell it, and for buyers that are looking for original and unique art.
Our manifesto can be summe

Account Security
Once every week or so we here at CEA and the Helpdesk encounter a situation where someone’s account has been accessed by an intruder who has inflicted some sort of vandalism or locked out the owner completely.
In this article I’ll try to explain some basic security concepts and various schemes that intruders will use in an attempt to take advantage of carelessness.
Most victims of unauthorized access see their gallery deleted, their journals wiped out and often their password and email information is changed in order to lock out the rightful user. Many times the invaded account is used to break policy and wreak havoc about the site until it is banned.
In almost every case the victim has unwittingly helped the invader gain access through carelessness and poor habits. In those cases where a stranger has gained access it is usually due to poor log out habits or being caught in a phishing scheme.
Cases involving access by strangers is rare though- it is far more likely that a roo

2003.12.16 - Oakland to LAX.
Fifteen days since I last sat hear.
Fifteen years -- she's come far, dear.
this separate box and that's it
I cannot sit by the wing like he does.
I can stare at the swivel sounding beat box resounding hum drum undone air swirling twirling
into metal machinery swallowing this black and white scenery and spitting out... fumes
I can't understand this life that I'll lead,
I can't start to think of the things that i'll need
Do I have time to wait and see?
Or am I sure that I live and bleed, form colors out of misery,
spill syllables from sugar lips,
lick life right off of those hellbent hips,...
Am I sure?
Am I sure that it's not your choice it's mine?
And this empty space between me and his face... is it real?
Am I feeling what I'm feeling or is it some password encryption barcode description
unfelt conviction insecure magnafiction
so abstract that I'm talking.
this pen ink tastes real but do my movements speak real?
I'm covered in shadows of covers of doubt...

Out of Sorts

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 24, 2011, 7:22 AM
I haven't updated in a while and I haven't been very active either.

I lost my dad a week ago after fighting against complications with diabetes and pneumonia for 4 days in the hospital. The memorial was last Friday and things seems to be calming down a bit from the intense week that last week was. For anyone that really knows me, I am a total daddy's girl and I talked to my dad all the time.

It's not even been 5 years since I lost one of my closest friends to suicide and I still get mad at her sometimes, wanting to talk to her or share something with her. I can't even imagine how long it will be before I stop wanting to pick up the phone and call my dad. Or how long it will take before every happy memory doesn't turn into something sad. My dad was one of my people - I'm not sure how else to describe it, but losing him in my life is like losing a piece of myself.

I'm trying to find distractions. Thankfully there's work waiting for me, and 3 classes this semester, and I'm sure both are blessings in disguise. I also have some art projects waiting for me, and at some point I might lock myself in a room with some paint and canvas or just go for a long drive with my camera and some good music.
