I'm not dead ... :PSo I did go back to school. I am officially an unemployed dental assistant now. But now that I don't have homework, I can start fractaling again. I wanted to work in Ultra Fractal (on my laptop), but even though I still have my key from when I bought it, it isn't working. Does the key "age"? Its from 2007.Anyone have any ideas?Thanks,Kabu
Its been months!So the job I always wanted turned out to be a wash. They don't like employees who can free-think. So I decided to go back to school. I start on Monday ... eek!!!We adopted a kitten because the animal shelter needed room to house all the animals evacuated from the wildfires. His name is Tokugawa, and he is a hoot! http://fav.me/d5etpqoToku beats up the other cats, even though they outweigh him by at least 10 pounds. And he has Molly the Mastiff wrapped around his finger, and Molly outweighs him by 184 pounds! He also spent about 1 1/2 hours in the refrigerator. He was curious, I just about had a heart-attack! I have to keep cat toys under my pillow so when he tries to wake me at 4am, I start tossing them at him. Buys me an hour or so. Depends how well I stocked up ... Last week I bought my son his cap and gown for graduation ... creating sporadic crying episodes
Hey!Good news!Got the job I have been wanting for three years! Will be starting in 3 weeks ... Taking the kids skiing in 2 weeks ... we are all gonna learn together ... lol Should be funny, will take lots of pics!Just refinished the kitchen cabinets, they look pretty good. Now I can get back to my art. I have been gone so long from it, I can barely make basic flames. It will take some time to get my skills back.Thanks for all the encouragement ... P.S. ... AskNoph ... Balloons? Really? It will take some time, but I will try ...
HeyStill looking for new work. Still trying to come up with some good fractals. Must be the weather bringing me down ... it will pass. Just have to be patient.Happy fractaling to everyone!Kabu
Tears and ThunderMy best friend has passed away. You all know her as Tears and Thunderhttp://tearsandthunder.deviantart.com/I will miss her laugh, her sarcastic humor, and our talks about the existence of God. Erica, go in piece ... I hope you have found all you answers ...
Hey All!Its been a while, sorry for that. But I have been keeping busy. Not much new going on, but my daughter turned 9 last month and cannot wait to be a 4th grader! My son does not want to go back to school, he is happy at home and tagging along when I go hiking. I have been doing some cooking, got a cookbook that I love! And working ... posted a photo in my scrapbook.Anyway, I put up a few fractals and a pic my daughter took. It's in my scrapbook as well. It is time for me to sit back and relax from all the cooking and fractaling I have been doing today. I hope you all are well ...
Spring is here!Okay, winter is over and I am finally over my "winter makes me miserable" mood. So I have been doing a bit of shopping and soul-searching, this time of year sucks for me. Not just because of the weather but there are too many anniversaries of bad things that we went through. But there's some good stuff too! I found a great job that I am happy to go to ... And have been fractaling a bit and doing a little site-seeing with the kids ... BTW ... they are awesome! I see them growing a little each day and I see them growing into good people, know what I mean? I am so proud of them ... Anyway, I have uploaded a few pics if anyone is interested. I will be submitting a few fractals as its been AGES! I promise to get back into the swing of things as the weather warms, and will be doing my favorites features as soon as the thermometer hits 75 ... My poor fence went down this weekend in 87 mph gusts, bu
Happy Thanksgiving!Okay, so I promised that I would update my journal about a month and a half ago and didn't. Sorry about that ... Anyway, have been busy with volunteering at my daughter's school, looking for work, a wonderful new guy, basically life in general. And, for the BIG BIG BIG news ... wait for it ...That is my fractal, Sigmoid on the cover of a new book. I want to thank Karen Wyman for choosing Sigmoid as the cover art ... You can find the Kindle eBook here ... http://www.amazon.com/Boundaries-Look-World-Hartmann-ebook/dp/B004C446S2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=books&qid=1290382611&sr=1-1-spell and the hard cover edition will be available very soon from Amazon.Now that I have tooted my own horn, it's time to share some art from my favorite artists ... Ya'll have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! :thumb183339050
Halloween???I will update my journal in a bit, just wanted to know if there are any Halloween Contests for fractals this year. It's my favorite contest of the year!Hope you all liked the script. I am working on something else, but having a difficult time scripting the PostTransforms, not sure how to do it. Any suggestions?Thanks all and have a wonderful week! I will have some amazing features when I update ... Kabu
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it. Intro Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.Anyhow, why am I so desper

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.If you don't know your sun sign, click here: http://www.astrology-online.com/persn.htmIf you don't know your moon sign, click here: http://www.lunarium.co.uk/moonsign/calculator.jspNext you need to add up the values of
The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
