Holly crap. My iPod is on crack for some reason. I added two or three songs yesterday and the library updated. But then, on the iPod everything was completely wiped out except some stuff bought from the iTunes store. Does anyone know why this happens?
I feel kind of guilty thought because 3.1.2 is the firmware it's running on. I know, where have I been?, 4.0 has been out since forever. When version 4 came out however, I didn't even bother upgrading because 3.0 does the job
. I might as well perform the upgrade now but I'll be doing a restore (clean install) due to the 20 MB of space I have remaining.
Before I delete my stuff I thought I'd look at the most played song and play count and share with you guys. The top song is Up All Night by Drake w/ Nikki Minaj with a whopping 1,993 plays (Coincidentally a play less from my birth year wtf). My initial reaction was: what the f#%^ there's no way that song got placed that many times and how did Nikki Manaj get on my top played songs. This is not the only song with so many plays, 38 others are up there too in the thousands. Wow. April or May was the last time I started with a clean slate so in a year I've used my iPod quite a lot--not counting all the videos I've seen on YouTube. Me and my iPod have been though a lot that's for sure.Messages
Anyway, dA is one of my other my main points here. On April of 2010 I decided not to clean my message box here on dA to see how many of them I would collect without being tempted to keep my message center on 0 like I would normally would. Also, a whopping 2,500 notifies (including devwatch messages and not limiting favs, watches, and llamas) are sitting there today not counting my regular messages I responded to that automatically were removed from the count. Listen, I don't want to sound like I'm bragging because I've seen people who get these much if they don't sign in in a week, but this is certainty a whole bunch for me. Which leads me to thank you guys for all the support I've got through the past year. I know I haven't got to release anything remarkable here (like auser here actually told me in my face before!)Firefox
But ALSO! My browsing history on Firefox (on my Windows Drive) has not been cleared at ALL in a year too! This breaks the record for the longest time I've not cleared my browsing history. All websites I visited are logged from research to school projects and of course regular browsing; all that stuff since last year. A year worth of browsing can easily be seen in my history. Firefox doesn't even recognize there is a year worth of history and calls it "6 mo. or more old" LOL cl.ly/2D3l2b1M2b1f281n3u2C
Dang is there anything else you've neglected?, is what you may ask. I'm trying to think and I feel like I'm missing something but I guess that's all. You might think I've gone loopy, but not that many of you know that last year was the least I've used my computer since I had internet. A couple days actually went by without even turning the computer on because I had no computer access due to my office space used by something else at my house. Even these past days other stuff have affected my computer time like school (which completely interrupted my plans of an iPhone theme I was working on, icon replacements, a ui...). Time will tell if I can work on them more now that exams are over and having completed my first term of college.
I think I know what can caused me to do all this. It all ties with my loss of computer time that lead me to use my computer less and not having time to mod my iPod and not use my computer that much in general. My PC is currently back in my hands and I'm in school break so I finally might have time to resume to my regular hobby. Hopefully I can come up with some great stuff for my gallery and I mean it this time. A decent portfolio with more than average stuff is my goal. Today, before going to school to take a final exam, I was browsing dA and came across this awesome artist who makes some amazing realistic digital paintings. I was really impressed so I checked this person's profile to see their gallery and in their dev info they had a time line of their work. [Quick Edit: found the artist check him out!: Sheridan-J
] The year 2004, which is also the year he finished high school, was when he started to appreciate drawing. Each year from 2004 to present has three pieces of art he drew and each getting even get better. So, I realized that if I want to thrive in my favorite hobby it will take time and practice. There. Please forgive me in advance for any crappy stuff that I might put out in the future.
If I hyped all this up and something awesome doesn't come from me to the community, please bare with me, I hope you can understand that; well, shit happens. This is life.
I also think this is my best journal to date so I will keep it here without expecting comments; but to have it for myself so I can reflect back to it in a couple of years or who knows, whatever I may use this for in the future. Thanks for reading. : )
