Looking out for me! Yes indeed!

Karma at Work

I was in a car accident this past week. My car has one issue (driver's side mirror is now missing) but is safe and driveable. I am unhurt minus a fairly short panic attack right after I was hit. Emma was in school and not in the car for this!! And a good samaritain tailed and caught the guy who sideswiped me and brought him back to the scene where he took the blame for the accident (guy was in a box truck and had no idea he had hit me when he merged into my lane).

Someone was watching out for me.
That could have been so much worse on so many levels!
Some good I have done seemingly has protected me thankfully!

I am waiting on his (the other driver) insurance company to "investigate" the accident. I already got the quote on the mirror. It is $230.04 which isn't bad at all. I just need the insurance company to hurry up so my mechanic can get the parts and fix my car. You don't know just how much you use that dang mirror until it isn't there anymore lol!


Bruiser Update

He is doing GREAT! The meds are working well and he seems to be mostly back to his old self. He doesn't even act like he is in pain which makes me want to take him off the meds. But I am not going to - don't worry. I don't want to take him off, have him starting having massive pain again, and not be able to catch it back up to where he is now. Playing catch-up with pain isn't a good way for Bruiser to live, and I keep reminding myself of that.


Art Update

It is coming lol Obviously I have had an issue this last week plus another issue I don't really want to speak about too. It has made squeaking art in a little hard when I have had to spend nearly every free moment on the phone with various people / companies. I am working on my Crystal Animamate tonight, Taaffeite Starling. Probably tomorrow night too depending on how late my body lets me stay up tonight. After that are a couple MYO Adopts I keep putting on the backburners. Then some more work on the Senshi Brooch Maker backgrounds. Random stuff will be mixed in as needed. Random always has a way of happening lol

I'm really glad you're not hurt and the car isn't totalled.

Me too! That was the scariest accident I have ever been in and it wasn't all that much lol. Watching the mirror shatter was pretty cool tho.

I'm glad you're okay and weren't hurt! That can be a scary thing! ;;

And I know how you feel about the mirror thing, I've lost a mirror or two trying to avoid accidents when it was either the trash can or the other guy that was on my side of the road that was too small to start with. T_T It's such a pain when you realize 'hey  . . . my mirror's missing'

Good luck! I know I had to replace my own, trash cans don't pay for the damage they cause. Thankfully, my dad worked on cars so it didn't take us long to fix it and didn't cost a whole lot because I bought a cheap after market mirror or managed to find one in a junk yard. ;; At least yours is an insurance claim and can help you get a good replacement.

My Deviation Submission Journey in Eclipse PLUS

Well, that was easy LOL

I love how they streamlined the submission process. Simple click-and-go buttons to determine your deviation type instead of those gawdawful lists that are nested upon nested upon nested *blargh*

Basically having to select anything for your deviation via the submission process is easier. The downside is the coding you used to be able to do in the description is gone. No code for us... Very sad day. Let us all have a moment of silence for our loss...

Okay now that that's over with, the deviation submission process looks almost unfinished in that some of it still operates like the old version. So I am not sure if the new splash of paint they put on it is supposed to dazzle my ass or they have more updates in store for us, but I am excited to find out. I really expect more whammy than what is currently put out there for Eclipse - the rest of it is so different from the old version that coming across something that looks halfway is disappointing.

My overall thoughts so far on Eclipse...

I love:

the layout and designthe theme options - seamless switch is a bonus!how streamlined and usable it is: easy access and useful menus over the old version, things put in plain sight, like-items grouped with like-items, and fast!! Pretty damn zippy even on this crusty pc I'm on....an actual real live commission / sales area!!!! Hello useful AF!the rating of deviations. That is just cool, and I hope will become very useful!the easy click and auto-arrange of deviations!! YAS!!!ease of managing watchlists right from the notification area

I like... maybe just ok with:

the lack of containment: everything kinda spills out in either theme - would be nice to have comments (for one) more contained so it is easier to see where one ends and the other begins...the emote thinger: yeah they pop right up, but not being able to add multiple at once is a little bothersome... I really hate having to reopen and search again for that perfect emote.our status crap is showed to everyone... I don't want everyone to know my stats crap - can we hide that again please???the cover image is a great idea but dang... can we please move it / center it ourselves as basically every deviation I have ends up as a crotch shot! ;w;dealing with lots of deviations in your notifications is a bit clunky... what happened to select all?! and DELETING a ton at once?? I mean yeah it IS possible but holy crap you got to load a ton of stuff to select all and then remove it...

I am quite a bit more bothered with:

the lack of coding across the board... WTF dA!? I crie bc I cannot center... ;3;the lack of profile customization... You gotta let us move stuff around if you won't let us code otherwise what's the point of buying core?!THUMBCODES! Bring back thumbcodes! *bangsgavel*the icons are warped... do not change the size... BAD DA *slaps*

Looking forward to...

the other areas of the site being finished enough for us to play on: groups, forums, etcwhen long menus scroll correctly LOL ... CMON DA SCROLL WITH ME!
A JOURNAL VIA ECLIPSE

So the easy-add for images goes the same for journals as in status updates but also comes with some swanky formatting options to the journal layout. Same highlight and select formatting options (plus some extras not available in status updates) available which is sweet!

The easy-add tho is JUST for your own gallery - you can grab basically anything there and they seem to have fixed the nested folders things I was barking about the other day. Or maybe not and I am dumb... idk lol

HOWEVER I AM DISMAYED

I cannot figure out how to do the thumbcode to put other deviant's deviantions into my junk!!!

Like I can do this: http://fav.me/dcryvy2 via the share option and copy clicky... But I cannot find a THUMBCODE IMMA DIE

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, if you have it in your collections / favorites OR know the name of the deviation you are wanting, you CAN search for it, hopefully find it, and then click it to get it into your journal, status update, comment, whatever.

I miss thumbcodes....

This is by far the most disappointing thing I have found js. Also huge image option is HUGE! And lack of customization - I miss my journal skin... ;3;

Also is it weird I prefer the light theme? All you harping about the dark theme being the only good thing, and I'm here like NAAAAAAAAAAAAH, light theme ftw!

THUS ENDS MY OPINION FOR THE DAY. Also dA, WHY TF CAN'T I CENTER MY DAMN TEXT!?

Am I dumb or is this not a thing anymore??
