Sorry, for being gone for so long. One string of bad luck after another has kept me from coming back. Generally speaking life hates me, and my computers...

So, I was watching some anime on my main machine, grabbed me a Dr Pepper and was relaxing. Attention got drawn elsewhere during it and I walked away. A few seconds later I hear the worst sound ever coming from my speakers and a blue screen on my screen. A quick inspection showed my can of dr pepper knocked over(presumably by my cat who darted out of the room with the sound) and poured coincidently(everything lined up perfectly) down my computers top fan vent. So yeah, fried.

I salvaged what I could and put it in with some of my older parts from an older build. Survived about a day till an old IDE failed and corrupted shit everywhere.

I took the two failures as I sign I needed something new so I've started building a new comp. I'm here now cuz Ive got the barebones system needed to operate(thankfully one of my graphics card survived...the other got the full brunt of the soda that fried it and my mobo). Also thankfully, I somehow miraculously recovered the data on my comic and sprites from a corrupted volume(I'm poor at backing up so this has also been a lesson) and I can continue work on my queue to release.

I still have one reinstall of windows left(when I get a SSD in 2 weeks) so theres still the possibility I might lose data(nope, Im backing it up now), so theres that.

It's set me back in time and money, but I feel I'll be able to pull through(and get the ultimate gaming system out of it in the end too>.< If you are going to go you might as well go all out). Anywho, I'm back. Introductions was the best place I could think of for this thread as I feel Im reintroducing myself.
