Question for those of you who've moved to Windows 10 - how has it been for you? 

3 deviants said I'm finally freed of the Eldrich Horror that was Windows 8.x :w00t:
3 deviants said I'm gonna wait for Microsoft to turn Windows up to 11.
2 deviants said Had some issues with it, but all working now. :phew:
2 deviants said 10? I'm still on XP! :granny:
2 deviants said I'm a smug Mac user.
1 deviant said Eh, it's Ok. :shrug:
1 deviant said I was a Windows 7 hold-out, but am now loving Windows 10.
No deviants said Nothing but trouble! GET THEE BEHIND ME, SATAN!
No deviants said I'm a smug Linux user.

I'm Alan, a mild-mannered geek who moved from software development, technical support and IT management into graphic design, print pre-press, CD / DVD authoring, video editing & conversion and a whole lot more.

I've recently started out on my own as a freelance graphic design consultant, specialising in helping people adapt and re-use existing artwork and content for new projects.

Artistically, I'm interested in 3D graphics, fractals and photography.

I was online back when the Internet was still steam-powered. :granny:

I also love all kinds of music, and have an obscenely large collection of tapes, CDs and MP3s. :D
In no particular order :

  • Premium, oops, Core Membership expired. Can't say I've noticed that much difference yet, but that probably says more about how infrequently I log into here.
  • Deleted the Windows 10 virtual machine I'd been toying with. Thankfully, I kept a copy of my Windows 7 setup, so I'm good to go for the few Windows applications I still use.
  • Closed my unused Instagram account.
  • Closed my even more unused Ello account.
  • Finally gotten serious about keeping on top of my paperwork. Floor in my room is cleared. The giant box-file I bought earlier this year is now being used properly. Threw out a load of unneeded and/or obsolete stuff. (Stuff with personal info on it goes into the compost.)
On the upside, I'm starting to post regularly to my Tumblr account. :) Next up, doing more writing and blogging.

Hi Danie, belated thanks. :) Seeing your avatar makes me a little sad, partly because it feels like a millenium ago that I first joined dA and you were still a Photography GM. :granny: But also partly because I'm reminded that snowmask stopped doing her nudicons, and for that matter her highly-suggestively-titled journals here. :(

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!<3
