Drawing Mill Out Of Order - Feb 2nd 2023

During Drawing Request Show stream today, the mill broke down. I was in the middle of a drawing request for Nglswt, when the computer just inexplicably just shut off. It was different then other times it had blue screened, or restarted without warning, or when my better half accidently turns on an appliance and flips the breaker. This turned off hard. After checking out the internet, the UPS and everything else it might be. I tried turning computer on again, and it wouldn't turn on. The power button was blinking in a pattern, that after calling my IT guy ( my computer wiz dad ), means the power supply or mother board ( or both ) has failed.

I had a second backup pc, same model, same connection ports and loaded up mirroring the current one, ready to go. It was last updated a few years ago, and sitting in storage ready to swap so maybe at most i lose one day of work. Well, much to my IT guy's dismay, whom help me set it up over the years, it wasn't functioning right either. The power supply seems fine, and I got a signal to the monitors, but it seemed to have a bad hard drive, or SOMETHING.

Needless to say, despite my best efforts ( and my IT dad's best efforts ) I will not be returning to stream today. He is on route to come up and swap hard drive and good parts from my current pc to the backup one that is running and powering up properly. So, tentatively, Friday I will be able to get back to work on my desktop no problem. All my art files, client, stream and personal related, are backed up on drop box. So is my desktop and other places. Technically, the 4 or so drawing requests I did today before the computer crashed should be backed up too, I'm curious and betting, that there's an auto save backup of the drawing I was in the middle of backed up too to a certain point. I bet I lost just a minute of progress on it if everything goes as I expect. 

So my dads coming over to swap the hardware, and hopefully ill be up and running to get commissions done tomorrow. Sorry for the technical difficulties, THANK YOU for coming out to my stream. If all goes well, at the earliest, I'll be back on stream with a few commissions and looking at jam prompts and picking a February theme tomorrow. At the latest, Ill see you guys on stream next Tuesday same drawing time same drawing channel.

See you on discord and around the interweb in the meantime.

Get the mill fired back up to 100% soon. Sorry for any delays this may cause, but your order will get knocked out soon as possible regardless.

I can do some things a lot slower and more akwardly on my EWG mobile tablet PC. Which I'm on right now. I will continue to work on commissions here in the meantime.

---3 Hours Later----

Well I didnt expect that quick to get back up and running, but a good 3 hours after my computer crashed in the middle of stream today my computer wiz IT dad had parts swapped and the computer buttoned up and running like brand new. All art from today sent. Look for a commission stream tomorrow just to get more stream time in this week! Cya then!
