INTRO - WIFI
Going wireless - about a year to a year and a half ago. I started playing with WIFI. I bought a really cheap, cheap, cheap server. So I wouldn't be wasting my money when I purchase what I really needed later on. Also, with a cheap system, I didn't feel like pressured to find more time to play with the system to learn more about wireless connectivity. But now, HOLY CRAP! I'm getting ideas up the wazoo.
I don't know how much real time it's going to take; to find the time play with a some new toys. When I can get around to buying the new toys. But as I go forward, I might have some interesting things to post. And it's been too long from when I was doing regular posting of my artistic expressions.
Good news, cheap PC's - because I don't need one PC to run anything and everything. WIFI is connecting everything as if it is all one big system. So I can buy cheaper computers, and maybe other devices too? And use that savings to buy more equipment and a bigger WIFI server. For I might be able to thing of everything as a workstation and not as a stand alone unit.
PC workstations - as stated above, I'm going to do a workstation format. Which will not only spend less money on new computers. But, if a computer crashes or can no longer handle the current software. And I have to buy a new computer. The only software i have to be concerned about not running on the new computer. Is only the software on the computer being replaced; not every program I own.
AUDIO STUDIO WORKSTATION
Current focus - I'm going to push more on updating my audio processing power. Sense some art (animation) starts early in the production with audio. So, if you'd like to see me post any audio files; let me know. Otherwise, if I do post any audio files. They will be informational and not usable for animations and video.
Sound effects - I already have recordings to edit. I just need the software to edit the audio. To create tons of sound effects and special effects. And with the right software, I have audio that could be looped into sound tracks for background noises, machines, events and such.
Sound tracks - I don't know what kind of sound tracks I can put together quickly. But I know what kind of tracks I'd like to work on: applause, air plane, crickets, frogs, wind, to name a few. The kind of stuff to help round out any animation or video.
Music - I will be looking to type in to the computer songs that are off copyright as well as compose original music too.
ART RESEARCH - DATABASES
I'm still going forward with developing ideas for character creation.
Patron.com - I'm not sure if I can provide a good show for people to spend money to support me. But I do have tons of drawings going back to the early 1980's. So it is possible I could offer something on a regular schedule; so people wouldn't be paying and seeing nothing. I guess I could call it items from "The Vault" or something. Any ideas from people who might want to support me on Patron.com at a real cheap price?
But Patron.com could also be a way to earn money toward writing an art book or at the least publish art pamphlets of 10 pages or less. Pamphlets That could be information or/and tutorial in nature. Or, don't add another web site to my list of sites I'm on; use the download services at DeviantArt.com to sell items? Do you have a preference?
