Merry Christmas!Merry Christmas folks, I hope you're all having a great time. I'm still waiting for snow... well, it's still not too late for the Christmas evening.
Sitrep: Hard drive dies, new one on the way n moreMy Toshiba 5400rpm 320GB HDD seems to start dying, it made last weekend's update freeze for 5+ hours. I made a restore to a point 4 days ago, but windows deleted my ini files and I've lost 2 days of work on my skin. I'm trying to use my active-undelete, but it isn't picking up any ini's atm. I ordered a new WD scorpio black HDD a week ago and should be back on track in a matter of days if the current HD fails entirely. I blame that 100% disk usage for 5 minutes at every start up for a year since I have this PC.
I'll scan the drive and reinstall windows afterwards on Thursday. I really wanted to bring an update for Desk Cloud to you guys at that time, but looks like it's not possible.
W8 apps blacking outI have some weird things happening with my W8 apps. Randomly some parts are blacked out, some just disappear, also happens on mouse-over. All apps are affected by this.
Maybe it's a GPU problem. I have integrated Intel HD 4000, switchable between AMD Radeon HD 7670M (30% OC, DDR3 version).
Any advice, opinion or thoughts about this?

In case you're wondering......why I'm so inactive and haven't submitted the stuff I promised.
The truth is, I got a new laptop (i7, Radeon HD 7670M, 8GB RAM, etc.) with W8 pre-installed on it (great install, all drivers and software working and stuff...), but the productivity on W8 is absolutely zero, not because of the metro stuff, but the lack of aero blur which is needed for my Rainmeter skins, also I can't seem to figure out how to enable boot menu, so I can install W7. From what I've read on the forums people have managed to throw the W8 out the window and installed W7, but I want to keep W8 on dual boot with W7, unless I find (or someone tells me) a safe way to do so, I'm stuck!
P.S. - I'm already sick of the W8 look, it's less shit than stock W7 tho!

+ I'm studying the best thing ever, which is architecture, of course there isn't as much time left for skinning and other stuff like it was before, but at least I love going to school (yes I said that) and making blueprints, drawing and in the near future I'll make paper models and I'm receiving a scholarship just for doing that.
- Of course I spend what little time I have on dA to see some amazing works of art, but the downside is, I can't say thanks to everyone who has faved my stuff or added me on their +watch.
I just deleted 3.5K deviations from my message center which was from the deviants I watch alone, not talking about the groups that I watch and if I get as many activity messages as I do now, I just can't answer them all like I did before, It'd be just copy-paste.
So I say thanks to everyone who has supported me so far, especially a big thanks to neiio for a Premium membership and for giving me a chance to be a moderator for a new group
I'm back!Straight to the point
So I'll first tell what happened a month ago and then what happened recently.
My GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) decided to take an early retirement on July 6. The main difference between Battlefield 3 Teaser Trailer and what happened on my screen was that my desktop was divided in two, the upper half of my screen showed bottom half of the desktop and the bottom half of the screen showed upper part of desktop, plus - there was random flashing/moving horizontal lines (sometimes vertical), random red and blue marks appearing on my screen and everything was flashing and moving at 60Hz refresh rate.
In the mean time I was using a one model older laptop of the same production line (now getting ready to host my portfolio), which I used for almost a week, but that 24-bit screen hurt my eyes and creating anything is impossible with it. Then there was two weeks of taking my PC apart, putting back together, testing a
I'm leaving, for now.I'm leaving, because my PC passed away (for real this time) to be more specific RS480M. There is no way that I can make anything now and be here on dA, though I'll try to use my phone for internet and you can still reach me via note (I'll be checking those trough my phone) and email UltimateRT @live.com (without a space before "@").
I'm really disappointed right now...

Happy 15th Birthday!In April I wrote a post reflecting on my 15 years at DeviantArt, since the project began in April of 2000 and was launched to the public on August 7th. I went back and re-read what I wrote, and wow, speaking of audacious I'm pretty hardcore in this post. I write from my heart sometimes and then I hit post and that's that. So for our official 15th Birthday I wanted to re-share a link to that post:
And then today, I wrote this reflection for you as a toast & thanks for all the llamas:
Happy 15th Birthday DeviantArt! We are evolving, and soon we will be able to share exactly how you can be a part of our transformation, ensuring that the DeviantArt we all love grows stronger in supporting the visual & written arts for 15 more years to come! You will soon see us release many years of effort, repositioning DeviantArt from all we have learned over our 15 years of managing the worlds largest creator community.
Thank you for all of your support over the
