|Friends don't add friends' moms on Facebook.|
Why haven't I updated in a while? Back in December, I clicked on a box that said I needed to update Flash. Well it wasn't a Flash update. I should have known better because I was trying to visit a webcomic page, and you shouldn't need Flash at all to do that. I found a whole bunch of programs that I did not add myself. So I deleted them. But then all of my browsers started saying that they could not access the proxy server. I don't use a proxy server. I had the mother of all trojan horses on my PC, so I backed up all my documents and my cartoons. Then I took my tower to a PC store and told them to wipe everything and reload Windows. Burn the village to the ground.
So I had to re-install GIMP and my drivers for my WACOM tablet. I tried using a newer version of GIMP, but I just couldn't get it the way that I was used to. Learning to use new software screws with my creative process. And for a few months, I just slacked off. I'm not getting paid to do this, and the things that I do get paid for, or can hope to be paid for, take priority over the things I do for shits and giggles.
And to those who write virus software, someday you will get sloppy and you will get caught. You'll get free food, free healthcare, and NO internet access. Quit now when you're ahead.
