First off, I have a NEW COMPUTER, donated to me by parties who will remain unnamed in the spirit of animositness and humbility (two BRAND NEW WORDS that I created just for this post!); good friends who knew I needed something better than my Frankenstein's Monster of cobbled-together bits from various remnants and artifacts from the late 20th and early 21st century.
It's really weird using Windows 10 on a computer that has it ON PURPOSE rather than because Microsoft auto-updated it out of Vista :)
The timing of this gift was just too perfect. I had been struggling for a solid TWO WEEKS trying to resolve overheating issues on the system I had been using - no games, mind you, this was just random overheating from me typing too fast or trying to upload a picture! This was really sad because I *needed* my computer to play some old 70's and 80's cartoons while I made lamps for Oddmall - Most of my greatest creations are the direct result of Laff-A-Lympics, Grape Ape and/or Captain Caveman :)
It's some two weeks later now and I'm STILL in shock over how wonderful this gift is! At a time where i was feeling really down and about to go into another one of my epic Downward Spirals of Depression, my friends saved me by making me feel super-loved and appreciated :)
Thank you so very much, I am forever in your debt :)
