Hey all, the plan was to have a ton of pages done by now, but I ran into a slight snag over the weekend–my yiynova stylus just stopped working. The battery light flashed, so I changed it out for a brand new one, and now it refuses to do anything. Its casing was cracked just from opening it to change the battery over the last 3 years, and honestly I’m surprised it lasted as long as it did. The good news is that I’ve already put in an order for a new one on Amazon, the bad news is that it’s not Prime available in my region, or possibly any region, so it’s going to get here in 6 to 10 business days. As of today, it still hasn’t shipped. So, best case scenario, we’ll be back with new pages on the 16th, and worst case scenario we’ll be back the following week. If for some reason I get a message from the amazon vendor in where they tell me that they are no longer available, then I guess it’s time to take out a loan and trade in for a Yiynova MVP22U. I’m really hoping it doesn’t come to that, though.
Anyhow, in lieu of new pages, I’ll be doing all of the parts of the next batch that I can do without a tablet. It’s going to be weird as hell doing my planning on paper, because I haven’t done that in years, but I’ll have to make do. I’ll also be working with a Hiveworks tech to build a new website for us, or at least get the ball rolling on that. I like wordpress, but it’s way more susceptible to being hacked and has a lot of clunky features that make doing anything in it kind of tedious.
Anyhow, to apologize for what a pain this is, here’s a Valentine’s Day wallpaper for everyone! My initial plan was to release it this Friday alongside the update, oops. You can download it here in this dropbox folder.
Sorry for the delay! If my stylus had given me any indications that it was going to crap out on me, I would have made sure I had a backup waiting in the wings. See you soon!
