I know, it's been pretty much ages since I've done anything around dA. Mostly that's because I haven't produced any art lately - I'm a bit of a funk ATM - but it's also because I don't know if you've noticed, this site is a giant fat bastard. Seriously! It's huge
for a website, even web 2.0. Sometimes it loads so slowly I think I'm on MySpace.
Normally that's not too much of a problem - even I'm
on broadband these days - but the thing is, my phone line has serious issues right now. I should have DSL 2 speeds - our connection here used to deliver 1.8mb/s - but at the moment it's almost as slow as dialup. Oh, and our home phone line isn't working at all, not even a dial tone.
Anyway, my internet connection is arse right now, and (at least for me) dA tends to fuck up loading at all when it loads slowly. Large images just never download. So the whole experience is balls, and I've generally been avoiding the place. I certainly don't want to renew my sub when I can't use the site effectively.
As for real life, it's been kind of a downer too. About two weeks ago, Rowdy - our brown sable ferret - was acting oddly in the morning, screwing up his nose, hissing at food and bleeding a little in his saliva. The vet thought he had managed to loosen one of his teeth. By eleven that night, he choked to death in my arms, terrified and unable to understand why we couldn't help him.
It was a really bad night.
As usual, we tried to adopt a new ferret as soon as possible, so Finley wouldn't be lonely. Tank and ferret-who-still-needs-a-name arrived two days ago, and are settling in, though they seem to be a bit young and boisterous for Finley so far. We trust they'll work it out though.
So, in short, I'm on a bit of a dA vacation. No doubt you'll see me again when I can actually download shit. If you want to know what's going on with me, you can find me on Facebook, where I do still update semi-regularly.
