08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Okay, so I got a new laptop and YAY! Manga Studio EX 4, Sketchbook Pro 6, GameMaker 8.1, GameMaker Studio, RPG Maker VX Ace....Scrivener, Evernote...Ahhh all my favvi programs happily on a computer that can handle them, and more than one of them at a time without slowing down!

I previously let this 'no good windows computer' issue set back my art, but now I have no excuse. I have one good drawing in the works, and a doodle laying around already.

The comics? Don't expect those to be back anytime soon, but perhaps Kronos Space will get it's real start probably in 2016, or late this year. The book will come first.

Also, I'm giving out a coupon code for my book Pendant as a celebration of the new laptop (so that ya'll get something out of this other then me saying YAY!)

And, to celebrate, and so you get something out of this post, I have decided to give out a coupon to get Pendant free at Smashwords!

Awesome!  What kind did you get?  And where did you get it?
I'm thinking of replacing my own laptop.  I've had it for over 2 years, use it every day, but either it's getting old or it just isn't powerful enough to handle what I like to do.  (will barely run PaintToolSAI...halfway handles PS CS3...LiveStream maxes out my CPU without any other program running...sometimes just having Skype and the internet up makes it freeze....mehh)
Anyway, I don't think a 2.5 year old refurbished Acer is worth investing in adding more ram and memory and stuff...but I would like a laptop that can handle my art programs and stuff.

Glad you're back up and arting again!  XD

Lenovo Thinkpad T540p i5-4300M 8GB RAM 1920x1080 Full HD screen
This is one on Ebay:: www.ebay.com/itm/Lenovo-Thinkp…

Search for the stats you think you'll need, find a reliable brand and then try and find it refurbished. Ebay is great to look for laptops, Newegg and Amazon as well.

That's great news! :D

And by the way; I got the second Pendant book on my Kindle.  I'll be sure to write an Amazon review soon! :D
