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.

Copyright Infringement - Rageon.comCopyright Infringed Artwork on RageOn.com
www.rageon.com is a website that sells apparel, blankets, tshirts, etc with the ability to upload "your own artwork" to be put on said products. Which is no problem and they have some awesome products! However the problem is users are going online, saving artwork and re-uploading it and selling it ( as well making a profit. See image below ). The amount of artwork that's been re-uploaded without the artists permission is completely out of control. Many I recognize via DeviantArt right off the bat. I implore you all to take a look and make sure your stuff isn't on there. I've found several of my artwork taken.
I am totally for and support websites that offer a percent to artists and putting your art on awesome stuff, however when its your work and someone else is getting the percentage, that's when things go hackles up. I'm always supporting artists when it actually goes to the artist; but when it goes to Mr.J

All Good Things Must Come To An End...It's been 5 years since I started work here at DeviantArt, at the time I had spent two years dreaming that one day I would wear that $ in-front of my username.
When offered the chance, I assumed I must be dreaming. Even during the surreal moment of being sat on spyed's sofa with Pachunka I was still pinching myself to make sure it was real.
But here I was, living the dream.
When I joined DeviantArt I knew nothing, heck I didn't even know what a QA tester was when randomduck offered me the position.
I could barely code, I just happened to have a knack of breaking things.
But since those days I've grown up and I've learned a lot.
I worked my way from testing to development, I even fixed a few things along the way!
I've been to college, and in four weeks I will finish university and throughout all this DeviantArt has supported me.
For all this I'd like to thank DeviantArt and everyone there, without whom I would not be where I am today.
But as the title states, all g
In regard to cloppersNOTE: This is NOT an anti-clopper rant(rather the contrary actually) and please, before you start flaming me right away, i ask that you do me(and yourself) a favor and read ATTENTIVELY and PATIENTLY the textual content below before leaving any comments. This isn't meant to attack anyone.
OK, i've kept my mouth shut for long enough; i think it's about time someone said something about it. I bet that most of you who are reading this know about them "cloppers", right? Y'know, the bronies/MLP Fans who also happen to feel a certain attraction towards the characters? Well, I can't blame them much; i mean, the characters themselves are charismatic AND attractive in their own way. Sometimes boobs and curves ain't all what it takes to arouse someone(the rest i'll try to explain further below). And of course there are people who denominate that "creepy" or "wrong" or "gross". Everyone is entitled to their opinions, however some people are too strong about their negative opinions regarding
