Hey folks. If you follow me on Twitter you already know what’s going on. For those of you who don’t... when I went to start up my computer Monday morning I found it wouldn’t turn on. I made an appointment Tuesday at our local Apple Store and they believe it may be a bad power supply. Unfortunately this isn’t something they can repair in the store. As a result, the computer is currently on its way to a repair facility. I was told I should have it back in 5-7 business days.
All of this means that I am without a computer for the next week / week and a half. Considering that everything I do is now digital... this means I can’t work until I get Kelpie (the computer) back. (That’s Kelpie in the photo above. Mac Pros look odd without their outer covering.)
I’m very grateful that the problem is repairable. I was a little worried I might need to replace the computer entirely. As is, the repair, while pricey, is still within my budget. Thank goodness.
In the meantime, I found a cheap keyboard case which will turn my tablet into a mock laptop. This will help me keep up with emails and posts until Kelpie’s back. I can also do a bit of sketching on the tablet. Unfortunately I’m not steady enough with it to do finished work.
This was very bad timing considering all the additional work from the recent Kickstarter as well as this month’s projects. Luckily all my files are backed up daily so there will be no data loss from this.
As you can guess, there will be no comic update this week, possibly next week as well. It depends on when I can get Kelpie back. Please excuse the delay and thank you for your patience.
