The Dead Computer

Well, it's finally happened. My good friend, Powerbook G4, has finally departed this mortal existence. Mostly. There are still very faint signs of life. At least I had time to back up my drive. See, a few days ago, my first Mac (born circa A.D. 2004) decided to slip into a coma. Although it's been in and out for a few days, its hard drive is gone, and the Mac Geniuses say there ain't much I can do.

But I've still been drawing! And hopefully, a new iMac and CS4 Master Collection appear in the not-too-distant future. Until then (and until I have Photoshop back), you're going to have to live with unedited scans from my in-laws' all-in-one printer.

By the way, in case you haven't seen Up and need an expert opinion on it, I thought it was pretty good. I loved the art, especially. Maybe I'll post a review soon. In case I don't, just go see it yourself and tell me what you think!

We should have a funeral for the mac. Awesome timing for it to die, don't you think? :)

I really like that boy in the corner, by the way.

I loved "Up". It was amazing. Want to hear a joke? A squirrel comes up to a tree and he forgot to put acorns in the tree and he dies. The joke is good because the squirrel dies. I hate squirrels

My G4 died two years ago. It was a sad, sad day. I feel your pain.
