Computer Status

Mon Apr 7, 2014, 11:42 PM
As much as I want to get back on digital painting, for those who missed my previous journal entry, my computer isn't exactly in a condition to be used in full capacity after how UPS handled my computer.
Current state: working normally but not sure if it's safe to leave it on for prolong time, also have to manually switch off power supply when shutting down or else it will restart by itself.

I finally had UPS inspector to come over to my place and take pictures of the damage. Turns out there are more steps to be taken until I receive full compensation. I still have to take my desktop to the technical support, get it fixed, search the same desktop model that needs to be replaced, and fax the total amount of cost to get it repaired and replaced. It is quite frustrating that I cannot get my compensation immediately but it is the only way for now. It's been years since I last used fax machine, hope I still remember how to use that ancient tech lol 

This means no computer for few days. At least I have my tablet so I got something that will keep me entertained.
Let's hope this ends swiftly so I can finally get back on track.

PS stuff I ordered thru Amazon that was suppose to arrive last Saturday got lost during transit. Yay life!

So yes, the last time I updated my journal was... Last October . __ .;;

I highly apologize for a long lack of update. So time for me to give you quick nutshell what the heck I've been doing after October.

First, I am highly surprised how others found out about this, yes I am no longer with Starswirl Academy team. It was a really tough choice since I've been with the team for about one and a half year but with study and job, working with my fellow artists with derpiihooves and semehammer was absolutely amazing, but I had to move on. I wish grand luck for Starswirl Academy team on their project.

Right after Fall , I had family over, stayed over Winter, and discussed with them that I wish to move out of Illinois. I really felt I won't go far as digital artist at Illinois and consider moving to west. On 2014 I've began to look for a place to stay at California and slowly pack up my place which explains the lack of art update. 

This Winter was absolutely nightmare in Chicago. One day it was like -20C (below 0F) like I was in Siberia. Even on March, it was snowy and sometimes weather would drop below 0C. Just never had the chance to put away my winter clothes.

Sooooo, now I am in California so I no longer have to deal with cold weather anymore. I finally just settled in, having most of my stuff sent thru UPS. Most of my boxes arrived in decent condition but my computer desktop and coffee mugs came pretty damaged. My desktop was missing bolts, the video card, hard drive, and power supply was all over the place. This is the moment I am thankful that i know how to build computer desktop myself so I know which wire goes where. I am so relieved that I was able to make it operable but I am afraid the damage may have lessen my computer's life expectancy. Computer would shut off randomly but making the desktop leaning horizontally lessens the chance of having it shut off. Also my computer will restart after shutdown so I have to manually switch off the power supply. The UPS inspector is coming to check the damages so at least I will have enough money to have my PC repaired and desktop replaced.

Now I finally settled into my new home, I will start putting up some art and keep this devpage alive. Stay tune!
