I've been feeling kind of poisoned this week.
When I got it back, then the fun began. Have you ever had to rebuild a hard drive from scratch? I've been doing it nonstop for the last four days. So many programs -- Photoshop, Lightroom, etc. -- I don't have on disc, so I had to re-download them. And you have to get Flash, Adobe Reader, Quicktime, on and on. And then, I had to go through my paypal records, seeing whom I made payments to over the last two years -- and contact all those people, to ask if they could replace the textures I'd gotten from them.
They were all wonderful. Jill at Flypaper (I'm their biggest fan) sent them right away, as did others. But one artist went way beyond helping me recover my textures -- she sent me her entire collection, way beyond what I had initially purchased from her. I was very touched.
But, there's always some light in the darkness --
Oh, and my Wacom tablet went on the fritz today -- so it will be hard for me to finish my final for the Painting with Computers class -- sigh. I'll have to do it very carefully, in Photoshop (so hard to do with a mouse).
How is everyone else doing? Tell me something nice.
