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.-Daniel, out!
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?
MODERATORS NEEDED FOR #Architecture-of-skin!The following folders on Architecture-of-skin need to be moderated (one mod for each folder)Folders:• Windows 8 VS (taken)• Windows 7 VS (taken)• Media Player skins (taken)• Handhelds (one mod for all 3 of the folders) (taken)Requirement:• is to be online once a day or two and decide which submissions will be accepted.• have some knowlage and taste in the category you want to moderate.Advantage:• all admin submissions are auto-accepted.Contact me if you're interested. The sooner you'll apply, the sooner group will be opened for submissions.
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!
Life is just awesome!Life is just awesome!+ 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
Here's some Rock classic for the new school year!Have a great one!
I'm back!Straight to the pointSo 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...Bye!UltimateRT
deviantART on our Lucky 13As you get older, you may begin to see birthdays as a distinctive point in time. A time for reflection on past successes, past roadblocks, past lessons. I also see it as an opportunity to look forward, set goals, aim ridiculously high. I'm sure everyone's heard people joke about disliking getting older and lamenting another year passing, but not me. Not yet, at least. The wisdom and hard lessons I've had to learn over the years helps me map out my immediate future. I may stumble, sure, but I also have a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and analyzing achievements to guide my decisions. All I can do is keep learning and growing. I feel much the same way about deviantART. I don't need to tell you that a web property sticking around for 13 years is a rare thing, and it's not an accomplishment we take lightly. We owe our continued existence to all of you, and the passion and inspiration that emanate so naturally from the community, from the most successful professional to the mo
CTNx 2017!AHHHH CTNx was so fun!! Extreeeemely crowded and overwhelming but it was nice not having to carry my portfolio around this time. I also got to buy stuff this year since I'm actually making good money haha. But omg it was insanely crowded. On Saturday I could barely walk through the isles. It was still great though and a lot of my followers were able to pick me out in the crowd bc of my beanie and eyebrows and it was so awesome to talk to them~I got to meet some of my art heroes!! Tiffany Ford recognized me and asked to hang out??? And I got to chat with Ross from Game Grumps for a sec (i wasn't sure if i was gonna talk to him but we're twitter mutuals so i went for it and it was worth it). I met a bunch of other cool artists I vaguely knew from twitter and they were even cooler IRL! One of the Pixar recruiters I pitched to over the summer remembered me! Apparently she was keeping tabs on me and congratulated me on my job at Disney and told me to hit her up when I was feeling ready to

Positive Vent WeeeeDon't worry this isn't a negative vent this is actually a positive vent (WOW SO SURPRISING)---Ever since I stopped animating Tomsworld, I felt so good..since Tomsworld was good at first but than it started to become like a fucking choir and I felt like I was forced to draw/animate these AU characters.These characters were never mine to begin with, and I knew that since day 1. I just felt like I owned them because, of how much I drew and talked about them.But July 10th will always be an important day for me. It was the day I FINALLY stepped out of my comfort zone. I redesigned the TW characters into something original, and it was really scary at first.Because, I thought you guys would hate it since, most cartoon reboots/redesigns nowadays mostly get negative feedback and I was afraid of getting only negative feedback and being judged harshly.But..that didn't happen at all. You all loved them so much, that ya'll even made fanart not too long later. It made me so
Talking about the Robobuddies' livestreamAlright, let's talk about this. I was going to let this one pass, but enough people have been curious. The livestream is still up, and Robobuddies has shown our DeviantArt exchange. So, on Sunday July 15th, 2018 a YouTube animation reviewer Robobuddies decided to stream a reading of my novel Growing Around: Party Panic with some of her friends. While I was subscribed to Robobuddies at the time, I didn't watch the stream because I was too busy to watch a stream. And I have grown jaded to people reading my work. But, here's the link to it: [link]I had heard that certain scenes within the book, Robobuddies had gotten flashbacks to her childhood. And the next day both the thumbnail and the description of the livestream had changed. I had only a vague idea of what had happened. The next day, I tried to talk it over with her over DeviantArt, and that seemed to make things worse. At the end of the conversation she sai
New avatar every day!I had this idea from Google, that I could make a new avatar for every big event.#1 Feb 22: Presidents' Day#2 Feb 22: Heinrich Hertz's 155th birthday#3 Feb 24: Final Launch of Space Shuttle Discovery (2011)So what do you guys think, should I continue doing this?
