Epic ESO Weekend!As you may or may not know, I'm an Elder Scrolls junkie. I recently moved from Skyrim to Elder Scrolls Online. Back in January, I pre-ordered the Elsweyr expansion. And this weekend, you know, the icy-cold one where we got a bunch of snow in Colorado, my boss gave me three days off so she could have the air conditioning fixed in my work van. Yeah. Go figure.
But the time off coincided with the early-access release for Elsweyr, so I've been immersed in ESO for three days straight. Can't hardly even see anything that's not on my monitor, and having some difficulty in distinguishing what's real... as in, why the hell can't I cast any spells right now?
Anyway, if you're an ESO player and on the fence about getting Elsweyr, DOOO EEEEEET!!!
The area isn't exactly enormous, but it is beautiful, and stuffed full of cool things to do. The story is entertaining, there's quests all over the place, and there is still time to get all the cool pre-order goodies. Granted, I want nothing at all to do
Image Spam!!!Sorry for the image spam. I just realized that, like a total doofus, I never bothered to put any of the promo images I make for myself up here. And dang it, I like them, and this is an art place, so... there you go. Promise I won't be offended if you just delete the whole blob of 'em, but I wanted to put them here.
Hey Daz users...Just a heads up. I don't know how many of you are like me and have been wishing for the ability to set up a Daz render queue and let several scenes render overnight or while you're at work. But on the off chance that you have, and that you missed this, IT'S REAL!!! Someone made a Render Queue!!!Why yes, I am happy about this. Does it show? http://www.daz3d.com/render-queueAnd now, having made my public service announcement for the day, I'm going to go play with my new toy....
Promo: For those who like queer spec fic...There's this group, you see, called Queer Sci Fi. It's not all spaceships, any kind of speculative fiction is welcome, as long as it's got queer characters.
And why am I promoting this, you ask?
Simple. The founder of the group asked me to. So here's a link for the mailing list. Sign up, get free books. One of 'em is mine.
Yikes! Promo-y crap!What's this? you're wondering. Has the wacko kitten finally gone insane?Yep. I sure have. I just spent today re-releasing a vast quantity of my ebooks (read: those that do not need new covers) back onto Smashwords, just in time for a big sale. So not only are they all free of the tyranny of Kindle Unlimited, a whole bunch of 'em are free. And those that aren't free are half off. So if you're crazy too, and you like queer-fantasy-scifi-steampunk-horror-paranormal-adventure-romance-probably-missing-something-here books, then go check out my stuff on Smashwords. Just remember, you knew going in that I'm crazy......
I Love You Most FeatureFor the Valentine's Day #showyourheart thing, I'm going to dive into my "random coolness" favorites folder and pull out five deviations I love. No particular reason or explanation, because anything in that folder is awesome, and I'm going to just grab the first five that catch my eye today....
Daz Studio questionHey, Daz people? I've got a technical question for you, and I thought I'd see if anyone here knows the fix before I go and embarrass myself in front of the tech support people. I've had this problem once before, but I can't remember how I fixed it.
Daz Studio was working great, right up until I installed a new hard drive and installed a bunch of stuff, Studio included, onto it. Now it won't use my graphics cards to render. It sends the info to the cards, then they kind of freeze up for three or four minutes, then everything dumps onto the CPU and the render runs smoothly from there. The log file says 1.8 GB of data is sent to each card. Then it says the card memories are overloaded, the cards error out (with the fans blowing at full strength, by the way, so they're working their poor little heads off trying to deal with the load), and it goes to the CPU. The main trouble with believing what the log file says is that I have two 1080s, with 8GB each. On the surface, it looks like 1.8 GB
About that content...I have fifty million things in my Daz content folder. (Not really, but that's what it feels like.) I had it all sorted out nicely, then lost all my beautiful organization when I got the new computer. I've been complaining ever since.
But a while back, I picked up Content Cataloger Easy for something like three bucks. I tried it and didn't like it, because you still have to scroll through about a zillion things and it's hard to navigate.
Well, after trying to remember what I have, what it's called, and where the hell to find it for a couple months, I gave CCEZ another try. And this time I like it a whole lot better. It's still a pain to scroll through, that part hasn't changed. But I lost count of how many times I saw something and thought "I have that?" And there it is, complete with product name.
So if you're lost in a sea of 3D content and don't know how long you can stay afloat
