It's in the title. I promise to keep this one short, for a change.
The PC has been completely and utterly 100% fixed. The freezing was caused by an old graphics card that was locking up due to rapid changes in temperature. This happened with booting from cold. It thought it was overheating and so shut down to protect itself. I worked this out after I did a clean install of windows on a new HDD and still had the problem. It progressed to actual screen blackouts and that's when I worked out what it was. My computer now has a new Gigabyte NVIDIA Geforce 660 Ti, and is scoring as follows (3DMark benchmarks) Ice Storm 98734, Cloud Gate 15584, Fire Strike 4979. And I haven't even overclocked it yet. People that build gaming PC's know what all that means. I will shortly upgrade my memory to 2000Mhz for another performance boost.
The Torqualverse is safe. However, in two weeks it's all going in a box. I am doing an international move and the PC won't come out again until early July. After that it may be a few weeks before I am fully operational.
About my own situation, I am quitting my day job imminently due to poor health. This is mainly related to stress and excessive hours spent working in front of computers. Therefore please do not expect that I will be accepting commissions for several months. I actually need to take a break, and anything I do in the short term will likely be for myself. Assuming I can get into better health, I will be entertaining commercial projects later in the year. Actually, my long term goal is photography with real models, in parallel with 3D work. This, and releasing one or more eBooks of Amanda's stories. With more time on my hands I should be able to greatly up the quality of my work. Things will however be different in the future as, if I am not in paid work, money I spend on 3D content, software, camera equipment, studios, travel and models will need to be recouped in some way - and that means from you, the 1,500 deviantART watchers. I hope this is something people can accept.
