Hello there. I just wanted you to know that I'm not dead or anything. ;P I just have been busy with various things. I haven't lost my interest in fractal artwork, I've just been uh.... doing other things. Like programming. I'll get back into my fractal phase eventually. See, it works like this: I have two (or three) phases that I cycle through:

Situation 1: cycle through a.) fractals and b.) programming & music

Situation 2: cycle through a.) fractals b.) programming c.) music

Most of the time it's situation 1 (like it is now)... I'll probably renew my subscription as soon as I decide to resume fractal artwork on dA. Just remember, I'm not dead yet! :D

Seems like forever since I've logged on. Well, more news. I've got my new Athlon 64 3200+ that replaced my dead Socket A motherboard setup, HOPEFULLY this will be my last upgrade in quite some time. The motherboard that died was Gigabyte, as is this one, but I'm confident in their boards.

For right now, you can expect me to start working on some new fractals relatively soon. An interesting note (probably interesting to nerds such as myself ;P) : I didn't have to do anything to Windows to get it to work, despite switching from a Socket A board to a Socket 939 board. Linux, however, (and this might interest f--l--A--r--k) cannot find my graphics card due to the new interface it's using from a different chipset, with differences in memory controllers, northbridge, southbridge, etc. I'll probably have to reformat and reinstall my Linux partition. It's no biggie, I have no important data on that partition (it's for experimenting anyway).

Well, that's all the news, so the bottom line is that I'm back in action! :D

EDIT: by the way, I have 1,396 messages, which consist of 1247D, 13H, 4M, 6C, 116J, and 10P :rofl:

Bring back $jark!

I'm not dead. That much is true. The reason that I've not been active on deviantART is that my computer's motherboard is fried. (more on that later)
I'm going to be getting a new motherboard (again... all of these computer problems I've had in the past year have been just sucking the money right out of me). This recent turn of events has, however, led me to the realization that my Socket A motherboards are very outdated. Sure, they can run just about any software that's out there right now, but the design is very limited speedwise, and most computer manufacturers are not making Socket A boards for that same reason. The computer parts that I am getting are a Socket 939 Gigabyte GA-K8U-939 board, and an Athlon 64 3200+. I've been trying to keep my spending down by staying away from fancy motherboards and 64 bit processors, but when you think about it, that's the main thing that is being manufactured, and will eventually become standard compared to your typical 32 bit processors right now. I'm thankful though, that I was able to get enough money for this motherboard due to my very very frugal (read: cheap) spending habits. Okay, now to the story about my fried motherboard.

Rewind to December 29, 2005. Or at least that's when I think it happened. On December 23, I had purchased and installed a new harddrive in my computer. During that installation of the harddrive, I apparently had did some dipshit move of removing a stick of RAM while the power supply was still on. Modders beware: even if your computer is powered off, i.e. shut down, you still must unplug your computer. Normally I do this, but I forgot that time. When I had re-installed the RAM, my computer would not boot. The CPU fan would spin up, but my BIOS would not respond with a beep code or any indication of something was wrong. The computer merely stayed in an unreponsive state, with the video card not even initializing. Fearing that my computer was utterly doomed, I removed the RAM that I had forgotten to put back in earlier (I had discovered that my computer was only detecting half of the memory, so I looked and found that only one stick of RAM was in there), and my computer booted up fine! Now, back to the 29th. Deciding to give it one more shot, I put the "bad" stick of RAM back in the motherboard. I plugged it back in and powered it up. Immediately after I pressed the power button, the power light flashed for an extremely short moment and turned back off. My dad and I were stumped, so I removed the RAM once more and plugged it back in and pressed the power button. My computer would not boot. Note: This contradicted the problem of bad RAM that I thought I was having earlier. A slew of troubleshooting steps took place next, including removing any peripherals from the motherboard, including the soundcard, video card, both HDD's, the DVD-ROM drive, and the memory. My computer made a single long beep (that was a good sign, because beep codes mean that the computer is aware of a problem)... however, that was our only luck, as from that point on, the computer was unreponsive, it merely started the CPU fan and stayed like that. Later that day, we went back to the old, infamous Chaintech 7NJL6 motherboard that I had in my computer from April to August. You may remember me bitching about it at one time. If you're interested, it's still unstable. Linux freezes on it too, so don't go saying "well, duh, windows suxkz". People who go around bashing Windows for no reason just... well... piss me off. It's not a bad OS. Anyhoo, my computer parts are back-ordered and should arrive before the end of the month. Until then, I'll use my mom's computer to occasionally check my dA account and my email. See you in two weeks! :D

New HD and OS

Fri Dec 23, 2005, 7:03 AM


Well, I am writing this journal from a Linux distribution called Ubuntu. It's not installed on my computer, as I had it start up from the CD (cool, huh?). I've got two words for it. Sex ay. Even for a CD boot, this thing is running nice and smooth. In other news, my dad and I went to CompUSA last night looking for a Maxtor drive that was advertised for $60 after rebates. Because CompUSA ran out of those, we went to Circuit City and I saw a 250 gig Western Digital drive for $80 after rebates. I decided to get it. Simple enough. 50 gigs for $20 extra seems fine to me ;)

I haven't installed the new HD yet, but when I do, I'm going to format a partition for Ubuntu. Seems like a really smooth OS to me. :D
I'll still have Windows installed, don't worry. :lol:

Print Madness!

Wed Nov 16, 2005, 4:30 PM


I'm going to be rendering and submitting an arseload of high-quality (9936x6624 PNG files) prints, so that if you want something to get for that special (or average) person, feel free to do so! I always appreciate the support :D

Also, get ready for the next installment of Modern Technology, this one I think is my best work as of yet! (Artistically speaking, of course) The journal footer image is taken from the 6624x9936 version (it's taller than it is wide, same resolution as my other prints though, just turned 90 degrees)

Three things:

1.) It's going to be Yellow Day in... *looks* 1 hour and 16 minutes... so I'd like to say... something... that relates... to... jark. But.... it's slipped my mind. :| I'm tired. And have eyestrain. Which sucks.

2.) I.. uh, don't have the font I used to put on my prints anymore, so that might be good or bad depending on the circumstances.

3.) Due to #2, I have only been able to upload a new print of "Modern Technology" with no text, but I think it looks rather nice. PLEASE vote in the poll to say whether you like it or not. Please? :please:

UPR: Yellow Day Fractal

Sun Jul 31, 2005, 7:38 PM


Made in Ultra Fractal 4. I'm not going to sell this as a print, as it would go against the Yellow Day idea. This is an open UPR, however, YOU MAY NOT USE IT FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES. If you do this, I WILL take action. Legally, this is copyrighted to me exclusively. That being said, enjoy! :D

It is. And that's what I've decided to do because Windows XP is such a tard. :| If y'all want a rundown of my problems (oh my god I just wrote "y'all"), here it is:

:bulletblue: Game installers crash for no reason.
:bulletblue: Some computers on the network can't find me.
:bulletblue: Microsoft is so lame they don't know what the hell is wrong with my pc.
:bulletblue: I, being my own personal tech support, also don't know what the hell is wrong with this thing.
:bulletblue: Therefore; I am reformatting. See everyone in... well, maybe tomorrow, I guess.

(This is my 50th journal entry if any of you are interested, though I doubt you are)

New Motherboard Update Update

Tue Jul 26, 2005, 2:51 PM


Bold denotes my updating
I just HAD to make this journal an 'update update' :D

Computer = Stable (so far)
Windows  = Whiny little bitch not so much anymore, I just reinstalled it (again)

That about sums it up :D
I might have to reformat my disks (again) and reinstall everything from scratch. Not really That shouldn't be much of a problem, because (I THINK) I have all the important stuff backed up (like my entire "My Documents" folder on the computer, which, as it has accumulated over the months, is more important to me than the entire Windows folder)

Wish me luck! :D Luck granted, FMB out!

Jeez O_o

It seems like only a few days ago that I posted my 4000th pageview screenshot. However, I've already got another 100 pageviews on top of that? Hm. Hopefully 5k won't pass too fast... I want to enjoy the moment! :D

My new motherboard will get here either today or tomorrow... I'm not sure, because sometimes Newegg gets packages a day early (it says "On truck for delivery" on the FedEx tracking website), but last time, that didn't happen. I dunno. I'm still happy though! :D

Looking back through the gallery

Mon Jul 11, 2005, 1:45 PM


I'm almost done with my trip. So, yeah. :shrug: lol... Back home to my crappy computer (I'm going to miss this Pentium 4 :D)

But anyway... the subject of this journal is... old deviations! Have you ever looked back and seen what your deviations used to look like? Today, I'm going to feature some deviations that nobody has commented/faved or maybe even viewed, since that was back in the "less than 100 pageviews, zero devwatcher" days ;)

Without further ado, here they are!

More will come later :D

I'm going on hiatus!

Thu Jun 30, 2005, 5:47 AM


Well, not really. I'm going to be about 900 miles from home, visiting my grandmother and family in Massachusetts, but that does not mean I will not log on:!::!:  I'll just be out of commission until monday. See you guys later!

I'll be back in two weeks! (AND I'll keep submitting fractals while up north, my grandmother also has cable internet, so I'll just download UF and start from there :D)
