Very long story very short:
My PC issues came to a head with my PC going PZATTT and smoke coming out. Have to buy a new one, but it was time anyway - it was showing it's age.
Scraping together the shekels for a new PC at Covid-19 prices may take a bit, so until then: no more Daz... :(
But I'll still lurk around here, if I can't make pictures myself I can still appreciate other people's :D
Just a short update: I have not been very active lately; life threw me a few hurdles - no life-threatening catastrophes, but time-consuming and annoying all the same.
And then of course my Daz started acting all strange, but I think I know the reason: for several years now I've been updating instead of reinstalling, not to mention adding content and trying stuff and experimenting... to the point where my runtime has become so bloated and unwieldy that it started fighting with itself! :o
The answer is obvious: delete the lot, uninstall and start from scratch... which is a major undertaking, given that I have "quite a bit" of content.
All of which just to say: thank you for the messages and watches and faves and of course, all the lovely pictures - I'll get to each and every one as soon as possible!
As for making and posting pictures, I have a few lying around that I can put up - nothing Da Vinci class, but perhaps they can cause a smile or two (which is good enough for me.) New ones
To all my dear friends, acquaintances and even people who just peek at my pictures now and then, I am thrilled to be back on - and let's hope it lasts this time!
My ISP decided that a planetwide pandemic lockdown is the ideal time to shut down and service towers and generally faff about, because who needs internet anyway?
Needless to say, as soon as I'm allowed on the streets again I am changing ISPs..
So if I'm slow to respond to anyone's messages and submissions, don't worry and don't be upset... I'm still here. :)
