Some times I wonder if somebody is out to get me, but is lacking for details about my life and so has to go about messing with it in an indirect fashion.

The situation at present is that I have an art exhibit of unprecedented size to set up on July 1. I intended to prepare 6-10 pictures I had not previously printed, most of which were near displayability, which I only seriously delved into last Saturday, believing a week-and-a-half plenty of time to finish so many near-finished things and also send them to a remote location for printing. My computer sternly disagreed and the following morning refused to turn on. This behavior was repeated on subsequent mornings and other distinct day-periods following. Instead of asking for a postponement of the exhibit opening or resigning myself to make do with the considerable quantity of art junk I already have ready, I had every intention of doing precisely what I set out to do prior to events which rendered it undoable, even though it was already barely doable.

Try to imagine you have an important engagement, or a terribly unimportant engagement that only seems like it is due to your utterly meaningless life, and your automobile explodes, melts, or otherwise becomes inoperable immediately before you are due for this engagement: in most cases, due to the isolation of your meaningless life, you will just have to not go, and deal with that. However, if your automobile melts but you have a seesaw-action minecart standing by, you might consider “I bet I could get there on the minecart” and then cause yourself more trouble trying failurely than you would have just accepting failure from the beginning and doing something else with your time. Also, along the way you have to let other people ride the minecart for a while because it is a popular minecart and the trendy little tricycles the people bought for themselves instead of getting minecarts are ultimately even less practical. And it’s your fault anyway since you never thought your car would melt and that you would need to use your minecart for anything serious and encouraged the people you are now complaining about to use it so that it was not wasted. Also I just remembered that you are trying to sell your garage andthe pieces of melted carrRRRRRRRRGH I’VE BEEN PUDDING’D And furthermore I must say your metaphor is rather hard to follow.


This picture actually does not prove anything. It is a laptop computer with the large empty front piece turned over. It looks more complicated than it is. Also, I do not advocate positioning a laptop computer on the top of your own lap since that can lead to back or neck strain. It is better to find someone taller whose lap you can borrow for the occasion.

All I did after putting the computer like this was slide out the hard drive, hidden beneath the lower right section, temporarily load the hard drive into the tiny computer lurking in the distance, whose own drive I removed to accomodate this act, booted it from a remotely adequate, somewhat judgmental version of linux, because it was the best my crummy internet could procure, off of a flash drive, and copied a few things from the hard drive to “work” with in a comparatively less inadequate version of linux that nonetheless lacked the ram quantities, screen size and bearable software I was accustomed to while I waited for a replacement computer more like my accustoms, generously provided by Mr. Pez of Springfield PC and Advanced Telemetry Systems, who also provded my previous units and advised me on hard drive swapping, that I could re-place the slid-out hard drive into, and resume with minimal issue. Well it seems complicated when you say it all at once like that.

You may have noticed that I described a number of things but used far fewer pictures than usual, and also put “work” between quotation marks, and further, have jumped from my usual unstated “six days without updates” minimum to seven. That ought to indicate to you that the situation has been just about as irritating as my implications and run-on sentences imply it might be, that would not be entertaining to read about with more specifics and punctuation added in. But if it does not then it probably is not a matter of great significance outside of my personal experience across the previous week. And golly feeble at least I didn’t get shot at. And yes the rumors I started are true: this website is on some level intended to be amusing.


I know sometimes it comes across like an inept assemblage of random details, however,

    Computers work well, except when they don’t! That ant is highly suspicious. As soon as you turn your back, it will start making little piles of sand next to your sidewalk.

    ghost: I think you mean “did THOU art” and the sentence is still grammatically curious.

    space: that creature is over two feet tall! It wants to make BIG piles of sand! I will have none of it.

    robot: I should have put a spanish question mark on my page years ago. Ironically, I only use them because Windows forbids me to use regular question marks. It seems every operating system has a problem with the others’ query methods.

    If you were asking if I was able to make progress on the art-in-progress, I was, but not enough in the time I had. Maybe I would not have anyway, but certainly the computer problem, plus other problems around me slowed things down.
    Instead of Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop, which I am accustomed to and experienced with, I had to use Gimp and Krita. Both are capable tools with many features, but Gimp is as unintuitive as ever and Krita is more resource-intensive than a computer like this is able to handle, at least with high resolution imagery. I may prefer it to the famous Paint Tool Sai, however, which even on my usual unit will abruptly and permanently refuse to save if unstated criteria are met.

    I sympathize. May your next computer be far superior.

    I’ve always tried to buy long lasting computers but it really seems to be a crapshoot as to which will actually last long. I got a Toshiba hard-drive based laptop which lasted 7 years (good). Then I got a Toshiba “ultra book” with a Flash drive which is supposed to be much longer lasting, and it lasted 1 year (bad). Just now I bought a PanaSonic Toughbook which is supposed to be used by soldiers and policemen so I hope it will last but really have no idea.

    Is that one of those heavy, steel-cased computers that can stop a bullet?

    This was never meant to be a long-term solution; it just happens to be an especially draining and dragging short-term. The computer that broke had been in use by me for a bit over a year-and-a-half with an abrupt and decisive failure, while my previous had been goodish for four years, with some obvious signals that it needed to be replaced. My recent habits may be especially hard on them.
