I am going away mid week this week for about two weeks. During that time I will only have my cell phone. (Though I will slip back home to send out e-mails for those not done by the 14th. But that is all I will be home to do.)
If you want to find out how it will affect the two projects see below.
The Secret Santa:
Biggest thing - Please tell me who you are when you e-mail. Tell me who the picture if for too if you can. That will be a huge help because I will not have a list in front of me. Past that it is really minor stuff but if you want I made a post on Lilymud about it is a bit more detail as to what you can expect. If anyone has any major concerns about it try to let me know before Wednesday of this week. See just info post / Full thread for the Secret Santa.
UPDATE December 14th NOTE: Yes I do know about lilymud being sign in only at this moment. This should not affect the project at all. Those not members of lilymud that are not finished their pictures, I have sent the information needed to them.
First deadline is today. If you have not sent in your picture, you have an e-mail waiting for you. If you are already finished your picture and sent it in and heard back from me, you are good. Do not worry, the project is still going. So keep the secret. Just a few more days and I will be back home but do not let that stop you from sending your picture in.
This has the biggest impact on the comic as you can probably guess. When the hard drive failed I may not be able to get it running enough to get stuff off of it. If this is the case I will be starting back at sketches for the comic's last few pages. (I do love the last few pages of this chapter but not enough to redo them from sketches... I will do it if I have to but fingers crossed I do not.) The reason we will not get two pages the week I get back (as mentioned on page 5) is because page 8 needs quite a bit done on it. I was going to finish up the last few pages while I was away. But without a computer I can not do that. (This back up computer is not portable. So nothing can be done on the comic till I get home. Leaving me with only a few days to get the pages ready. Making it even worse if the pages are all sketches and I have to start from there.)
Anyway, sorry to bug everyone. It actually makes this time going away a little less fun as there was major plans that involved having my computer for it. But at this point I am just going to go and be happy I get to get away for that time and just enjoy without my computer. I will make another journal probably after the Secret Santa is over at this point.
(Random fun fact, 10 years ago today I moved to work at Walt Disney World. OMG time has flown by. Could not make it down there this year for a 10 year reunion so may just go down next year to celebrate. I might try to work on a picture to celebrate. So I have a chance to see how this computer handles Photoshop again.)
