Taking a break from rendering Yet Again :-(

Okay, I'm starting to think its time to give up Poser for awhile

My system was acting strange YET AGAIN (and again no virus seemingly), so I decided to do yet another reinstall of my OS.

for some reason it didn't give me the option of doing a 'partial' reinstall where I kept all of my old fles, but went ahead and did a Full Reinstall, which wiped out all of my files, including my secondary 'runtime', which contained most of the poser elements I have been using lately

The good news is that I have all the original files stored on a seperate drive, its just going to take a LOOOONG time to create that secondary runtime again (a lot of the effort is organizing the files once they are installed).

So once again its going to be a long time before I render again, and I probably won't get back into it seriously until I get that fabled new system sometiem next year.

Ooooh, that sucks! Looking forward to your return!

Thanks :-)

I will definately return, but mayybe this is a 'sign from above' to take a break for awhile anyway.

I've got tons of games (both for the PC and my obsolete PS2 ^_^) I've been planning to play, plus Gigs of anime to watch (see, I don't just download porn :-) ).

Maybe its finally time to get to that stuff for awhile.

Well good luck!

You will be missed! You could totally make money doing this someday.

Thanks for the kind words.

I don't think I'll ever do this for money (like commissions or anything).

Because then it becomes something I really dread doing...WORK! ^_^

We will wait for your great return Chup!

Thanks, Wesker (glad to know some people are 'missing' me ^_^).

I guess I'm about 20% finished with my reinstall of the Poser files, but my system still has some MAJOR fuck up going on.

I do a reinatall of the operating system, and about 3 or 4 days later I will again get the dreaded 'blue screen of death' every time I try to do a reboot.

Luckily I have an OS on another, smaller drive, and it works just fine.

Wish I could find out what was wrong with the original drive, though, since it is larger and I would like for it to be my main drive.

I'll probably get back to rendering soon, although not as much detailed images as before untill everything is reinstalled.
