Needs mo Pow-ah, Cap’n!

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

A’ight! That’s it! I’ve had enough of this fickle AC power. You’d think it’d be pretty regular, but apparently not so much where I live. I have a UPS that’s supposed to keep Alice running in case of power fluctuations, but apparently the 550va system isn’t enough to keep the mighty Alice running. So! I’m getting her an early Christmas present. I’m getting her a 1500va UPS! Give her a WHOLE 12 MINUTE OF BATTERY RUN TIME! Never again shall we be working only to lose all progress due to a power failure or brown out! As such I’m dedicating this month’s wallpaper to everyone’s favorite computer gal: Alice!

Donations this month will go to keeping that delightful hardworking PC running smooth and solid. Without her, Finder’s Keepers simply could not be brought to all of you fine folks.

Speaking of bringing FK to you all, I’ll be in Arlington this weekend at Anime USA meeting and greeting fans, answering questions, and in general doing that whole public appearance thing. If you’ll be in the area or attending the con, do try to find me on the mezzanine and say hello. It’s always great chatting with folks and getting feedback live. Anime USA will also be my last con of the year, so lets make it an awesome one, eh?

Sound Tracks

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

I listen to a great deal of music when I’m working. This is not uncommon for a lot of artists, and there are some people who say that you shouldn’t, as it’s a distraction from the art and doesn’t help you focus wholly on the work. I disagree on this, and feel that the music helps put you in the right mindset and helps tune out all the distractions. However, unlike a lot of people I listen to a wide range of music while working. Some of it is very fitting for Finder’s and other stuff not so much. And I’m thinking of putting together a playlist that is FK specific. So! What do you guys think? What tracks should be on the “official” Finder’s Keepers score?
