Computer Calamities

Those of you who have been watching me stream on Twitch for the last couple of weeks already know  that my computer Alice has been giving me grief. Lagging to unreasonable levels, especially for a computer as roubust as she is, making my work and life slow and difficult and infuriating. Friday when I should have been finishing today and Wednesday’s pages, her lagging reached the point where Photoshop froze on me. Twice. Within 30min. You can still watch this and me lose my shit in real time.

So instead of finishing pages I reinstalled Windows in a last ditch effort to fix whatever the issue is before resorting to more drastic measures. Sadly, I cannot tell if this reset has been effective without actually sitting down and trying to draw as usual. This we will discover sometime later today, I expect.

If the reset fixes whatever the issue was, we should be back to updating as usual Wednesday. If not, I’m going to have to start replacing parts until something works. I’m not sure how long a rebuild will upset our update schedule as it will depend greatly on how long it takes parts to arrive. Hopefully no more than this week on the outside. We will keep you all informed, as best we can as events develop.

Thank you, in the mean time for your patience and support.

About Garth

Born in Known Space, raised by the likes of Lazarus Long, Dr. Susan Calvin, and Lt. Miles Vorkosigan, Garth Graham has only ever partially shared the same reality as most of us. Fascinated by what might be and what isn't, rather than weighed down by the drama of what is, he has forged a tenuous bridge made of ink and paper between our world and some strange unknowable scape where improbable dreams are born. Perhaps it has driven him a little mad. Yet such madness has born fine delectable fruit for our eye organs. His previous works include the webcomics Comedity and Finder's Keepers. In his spare time Garth likes to laugh maniacally about the abstract and fictional concept of “spare time” and does his level best to refute entropy.
