and now the good news

Journal Entry: Wed May 14, 2014, 9:04 PM
Ok, so I know I haven't been posting anything of late... blame my new job, as I am usually too worn out after work to do any rendering, and on my days off I have so much to catch up on that I hardly have the time to render then either... suffice it to say I will be uploading a few photos soon, I bought a very cheap digital camera and took some shots of the place where I work... so keep an eye out for those.

As for the good news... that involves a bit of a tale.

As my watchers may remember, a couple weeks back I posted a bunch of wallpapers made for my favorite Linux Distro and some generic Linux wallpapers too... well I linked them on my G+ account and a woman over in the UK somewhere saw them. She does what she calls "freecycling" meaning she gets old computers, strips out the good parts, and then builds working computers from the parts which she gives away to people who can't afford to buy compuiters. She sometimes installs Linux on these machines, and on some of those, she used my wallpapers...

well, in appreciation of my work, she gave me first pick on a motherboard, processor, RAM and graphics card, but not some old, obsolete stuff... this is basically state of the art computer technology...

An ASUS Motherboard: M5a78L-M/USB3 ( www.asus.com/Motherboards/M5A7…  )

An AMD Processor: AMD FX-8150 8 Core processor ( www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0… )

And a Radeon Saphire HD770 Graphics Card ( www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0… )

Along with 16 Gigabytes of RAM and a few other minor pieces...

but that's not all... when I expressed my doubt that I would have a case or [power supply to fit such an advanced MB, she told me to go to Amazon, add a case, power supply, hard drive and anything else I needed to my wishlist, and then she bought those for me too! All because, as she said "I don't like to see artists suffer"

The motherboard and processor and RAM and Graphics Card are already here, and the case, PS and HD should come soon, as Amazon informed me they were already being shipped...

so within a few days to a week I should have a really really kick ass machine, 3.60 Gigherts 8 Core (yes, you read that right 8 cores!) with awesome graphics, massive onboard RAM, and a very large hard drive (possibly two... a 1 terabyte and a 3 terabyte drive)

For the first time in my life I'll have an actual state of the art computer instead of a hand me down obsolete machine, and I should be able to render at amazing speeds!

I will let everyone know when I have all the parts and get it up and running!

I now have both a Facebook page and an account on FineArtAmerica... so if you wish, please take a moment to visit those.
