Long time watchers--thanks btw-- will know that I may go a long time without posting or any type other type of correspondence because of IRL responsibilities. I thank you for your patience.
A new problem has arisen, however. My workhorse Mac has given up. Oh, the hardware is fine. It just can't do most of what I'm asking it to do. I'll nuke the drive, re-install, and use it for music, media, and other more prosaic tasks.
A new Mac with the features I need to improve my techniques will be prohibitively expensive and hard to justify for a hobby. My new machine will probably be a less expensive Windows machine, which means there is a possibility that many of my character files and renders will be lost. Even if I can salvage them, it will take some time to adjust to the new OS and load compatible software.
What at does this mean? You may not hear from me for awhile, as I try to rebuild.
Take care all, and we'll talk later.
