I made a post on my site and I'm not going to cross-post the whole thing it here. That's mostly to keep things tidy.
Yes, I AM aliveI really haven't had much to show lately. So here are the highlights. XP
- I've taken on redoing the fonts I've been working on...AGAIN!
Yes again! I got the uber expensive FontLab Studio since my last post. It's kind of prone to crashing on Windows and has a learning curve to it. They're currently working on a new which is more streamlines and had more kickass features. Sadly for me they're doing a Mac-first development and haven't released a Windows build.
In the meantime I've been sticking to High-Logic's FontCreator and it's direct drag-n-drop Illustrator conversion. I've also been redoing the fonts in a higher definition. Previously I was using 720pt as a base, now I'm starting with a 2048pt document. I've gotten some really good results and better quality glyphs as a result. I also still have old CorelDraw files to redo in AI as well, but when I get a spurt of creativity going I knock out a big pile of glyphs in one go.
My computer keeps trying to murder itself.I had my system disk get a virus and trying to fix it I managed to BSOD Windows 8.1. It gets really sad when that happens, as in it has a giant on the screen.
So, I tried to boot from my Windows 7 drive I still had around. However the boot loader was corrupt, the MFT was trashed, and it had bad sectors. So I managed to get it recovered so I could backup my files and deactivate programs (which I should have done before installing Windows 8 the first time).
Then I had to wipe my Windows 8 disk and reinstall everything...again.
Data DumpedOnly 12% of my data from the drive that crashed could be saved (see previous journal post). I've actually been working getting some things back to they were before the crash, so I might have something new to show in the near future.
Catastrophic FailureI've been out of commission for about a week due to my computer decided to melt down. I've been trying to recover 3 years/1TB of data from a drive that got fried and have been holding off reloading a bunch of stuff until I find out if I'm screwed or not.
Death toll: 1 power supply. 1 motherboard. 1 processor. 2x4GB RAM sticks. 2 blu-ray recorder drives, 4 harddrives.
Mac OS X.7Now I don't use Macs, and I'm not here to debate over what's better.
What I am wanting is your input on a situation I am in. I have created ALL of my icons (even unreleased ones) to include support for MacOS X.5's 512x512 icons. Now OS X.7 has upped the resolution to 1024x1024. Argh!
So I've stuck a poll on the page. Let me know if I should bother updating my previous icons to include the new resolution or not.
With any new icons I upload, the ICNS files WILL have the 1024x1024 resolution included.
Really AnnoyingThis has been bugging me for a while. It's only a small thing but I HATE when folks post stuff on DA and either: A. Put nothing in the description; B. give everything the same title; or worse, BOTH.
If YOU can't be bothered to write a little something, then why the hell even post it at all? Furthermore SINCE you can't be bothered; I can't be bothered to favorite, share, or comment.
Not much of an updateGoing through my submissions and updating them to have nicer previews, better PNG compression (where applicable), and using 7Zip instead of regular ZIPs to get the file size's down.
Dark ShadowsJust a quick thought...
Since DA is doing this contest on Tim Burton's comedic remake of Dark Shadows, I think it would be also nice to see folks posting stuff with Jonathan Frid's Barnanas.
For those that don't know, Frid was the original Barnabas from the 60's version.
Still in a SlumpYeah, I just really haven been up to making much stuff to put up here on ol' DA. Been kind of caught up with watching Let's Plays, playing Minecraft & Perfect World, and just being frozen with my creativity.
I did upload 2 wallpapers today, both of Lina Inverse from Slayers. :3
Edit: Woah, didn't notice my premium membership was expiring in 4 weeks. So I just burned some of my points and extended another 3 months. I would have gone for a longer period, but eh I'll worry about that next time I get close to expiring.
I also reset my page back to default. It was feeling a bit cluttered.
Fun fact about ESFun fact:
The original script for "Eeveelution Squad" comic wasn't what it is now.
The original storyline was supposed to be about a group of rescue team consisted of all available types of Eeveelution. Thus, this was the reason why it was called "Eeveelution Squad" in the first place.
It was originally a full PG comic. But since I wanted a family-friendly comic, I scraped up most of the story but still kept the name "Eeveelution Squad" for it because I like the name.
The members of the squad were supposed to be 8 instead of 9 because Eevee was originally supposed to evolve into Sylveon rather than having an Eevee and a Sylveon at the same time as seperated characters.
None of the Eeveelution were supposed to relate to each other as family. Everyone originally had a family of their own except for Jolteon. Jolteon was supposed to be the only orphan in the group as you could see in "I remember you" comic. And yes, this test comic was part of the original "Eeveelution Squad" storyline bef

I havent made a callout before, pardon me for sassy and passive aggressive behavior during it, this is a genuine callout considering how they treat others and act.
Why am i bewaring this user? for scamming and harassing others.
My interactions with them:
Eiichiro has a long history of harassing people who own lupisvulpes designs, they are also known for offering the lowest amounts of cash and then using new excuses such as guilt tripping and begging.

The Breaking Point: End-stopping and EnjambmentIntroduction
The most noticeable difference between poetry and prose is often the use of line breaks in poetry. When the line break comes at the end of a phrase, sentence, or clause, the line is end-stopped. End-stopped lines often end with punctuation like periods/full stops, commas, semi-colons, and colons. When the line break disrupts the phrase, sentence, or clause, the line is enjambed. The French word enjambement, from which 'enjambment' is derived, means 'straddling,' and appropriately, the phrases straddle two or more lines.
The first four lines of Shakespeare's "Sonnet 18" are an example of end-stopped lines:
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Walt Whitman also uses end-stopped lines in "Song of Myself (I)":
I Celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
