So I'm not sleepy yet so I thought before I go to bed I'd give an update on my computer situation.
So first things first, I got my tablet working yay. I am a little concerned though that the aspect ratio of my monitor is wider then the drawing space on my tablet, so I'm concerned that might make my drawings wider then I usually draw.
Now for the art programs. My program of Open Canvas, i think 1.1, works on my new computer I just really need to dig in and try and draw some thing. I downloaded a new version of GIMP because I thought it would have better odds of working on W8, and it does but allot changed from the version I have been using I haven't even figured out how to turn on the pen pressure sensitivity in the program, I might try and install the version I was using before if I haven't figured it out by Monday.
Now the big thing is this computer uses Windows 8.1, I have to say I'm starting to understand why people hate it. Just every thing about this OS is just so counter intuitive. I figured out how to make it have the desktop but even that feels off some how. I'm just more used to the old set up of Windows XP. I think I will try and give it a try for a few months and if I still hate it I will try and get windows 7.
On a side note I saw in a friends journal some thing about a hacker on DA that hacks your profile and really messes stuff up, so keep an eye out for that
