This week I suffered a personal loss. Not a person or a pet, but a thing I held dear. My computer died.

Did you laugh just now? I'd understand. It is a silly thing to speak so of a possession. It's just a thing after all, easily replaced. I suppose that's true for many. In this world of constantly getting the newest phone, etc.

Being a stay at home parent (read poor as hell) I can't just run out and get the shiny new thing when ever I please. Honestly I was never the type anyway. Void (my laptop) I had for five years. My Wacom tablet I've had for eight to ten years. Needless to say, I get my use out of things.

Now Void was a wonderful addition to my life. She replaced my laptop from Iraq who didn't survive but a few short years. Void spent a year in Africa with me and kept on kicking.

With the i7 processor, 8gigs ram, and 500gb HD, she had everything I needed.

Sadly I decided to upgrade her from Windows 7 to 10. I'd heard great things from my friends, so I felt it was a good move.

10 worked fast, though I had a few bugs here and there to work out. Until an update this week killed her.

I've built seven computers, and owned three laptops. I'm pretty good at working out the issues. This one I couldn't. And nothing I found on line helped.

Fortunately, I recently got a 1TB external hard drive. Most of my work is backed up. I have lost several recent works that were unfinished. One in particular I am very angry to have lost. Copy your work often.

The point of this journal is that it will be awhile before I have any new work to share. Not sure when I'll be able to afford a replacement for Void. I am looking into a Surface Pro, since I could carry it around easily and draw directly on it...but who knows.

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!<3
