The New 3rd Video on the FIA youtube channel– almost done!

What I’ve heard from a few places is that it takes three vids on a channel for it to become searchable– that is, findable by entering search terms. (“Findable” is now a word, btw. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So this is the third one. It should be up in the next couple of days. There will also be another version of the same video that isn’t related to fanfic or D/G (it takes a very different turn right after all the cats. Why are there so many cats in a D/G video? You’ll just have to see.) My sister immediately screeched “this one will go viral!” right after seeing it. Well, tons of cats are involved, and seeing as how there are over 40 million cat videos on YTR (not kidding, really not kidding about that one), the presence of as many cats as possible always helps. In totally unrelated news, I’m planning to get a new kitten on Monday. ๐Ÿ™‚

And here’s a screenshot of the original After Effects project, the source material for the final video. Just so y’all know how INCREDIBLY hard I work on this!!! And it’s all for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

SCREEN SHOT

New D/G Post for FIA’s FB page!

hi res d and g kiss still
And yay for acronyms! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway. This is a new pic I made in Poser. And JUST for Sonya, Ginny has longer hair. :)Also, some materials are more high-res, there’s SSS (had enough acronyms yet?), and overall, I think it’s better. Maybe it’ll go up on FB too, but for right now, this is really the only place I can host high-res pics. I do want to have a WP blog for FIA eventually, but not right now!

New SatSD art!

smaller_ginny_elaborate miki hair red
Well, kind of. I’m working on cover art for SatSD and developing characters. ๐Ÿ™‚ While working on Victoria’s character, I decided to also create a Ginny. (I mean, they WERE built on the same base…) So that will be The Real Ginny Project. Here’s the first pic! There’s a long way to go with the character, but I do like the hair. It was a remarkable pain in the butt to render. For any Poser users out there, she’s built on a Miki 4 base. Kind of ironic that I’m not building Victoria on the Vicky base… but I don’t really like Vicky that much, even though there are about 46584098,000 products for her.

BTW. there WILL be more posts once this hacking horror is cleared up… (said hopefully)

All About Being Hacked, Cont.

So the fun just went on, and it didn’t stop here. >:[ This WP blog wasn’t the ONLY thing that was hacked. Yahoo mail and Facebook were hacked too, and I’m not exactly sure what else. (looks at long, long, long list of sites I have a password for.) These should all be changed. ICK.

There are some morals to this story, almost all of which came from advice given by a very good computer tech I know at Portland Computerworks (hi, Joseph!)

  • Do NOT use the same password (or almost the same password) for everything. Yes, you have a lot of company if you do this– it’s what most people do– but it’s a terrible idea.

    If this happens to you, change as many passwords as possible. I’m not going to change every single ONE, such as the cute cat group, but I’m going to change as many as I can. (Amazon and Gmail, for instance.)

    If your domain is hosted by Dreamhost, send an email to them, and they will help you.

    Do not panic.

    Avoid running around in circles and screaming incoherently.

    Try this site: All you have to do is remember one password (theirs), and they then keep track of passwords on all your other accounts. (Or almost all– I don’t think that sites like Bank of America are good for this.)

    Oh, while we’re on the subject– change your online banking password. If you don’t remember your pin number because you never use it, do not get upset over how long you have to wait in the lobby in order to change this. Bring something to read, or you’ll be stuck with back editions of the Tigard Penny Saver.

  • So far, it looks like the problem is under control. ๐Ÿ™‚ (Finds a lot of wood to knock on.) There will be much more actual content here soon!

    New SatSD Cover!

    vic and ryan pensive

    Hi all! Here’s the latest cover for SatSD.:) They WILL get better… Nathaniel’s pants are enough to scare small children. But this gives you a rough idea.

    I’ll start posting more– that being-hacked incident was not very encouraging to creativity. However, SatSD IS done– the beta version, anyway, it’ll be revised a lot! Much more very soon. And a new chapter of Malfoy In a Glass posted on FIA soon too.

    Anise Is Back! She’s Alive! Yay!

    Unicorns Everywhere Are Happy.

    Hi all! (waves)

    I know it’s been horribly hideously long since my last post, but I’m in three writers’ groups, and in the novel writing group, Sex and the Single Devil is due on March 25!!! But miracles still exist in our time, and it WILL be done in its entirety. It’ll be more like 60,000 words, and the reason is that it’s now the first book in a trilogy. ๐Ÿ™‚ Death Train is actually the second one, and I’m still playing around with ideas for the title of the third. So there WILL be more posts, and most of them will be about writing and related subjects. Case in point: The next post. Y’all seriously want to read that one.

    The Creepiest Photograph In the History of the World

    Y’all may think you know creepy, but I’m here to tell you that you are wrong.

    haunted_house-1

    You may think this is creepy.

    You may think THIS is creepy– although personally, I’m convinced that it’s more of a case of Mom being overzealous with the sewing machine and a strange sense of design.

    30 Days of NaNo, 30 Covers of Anisefics: Sex and the Single Devil 10

    NANO– THE LAST DAY! More about that later. For now…

    COOKIE QUOTE OF THE DAY:

    โ€œAll right,โ€ said Ginny, her arms crossed. โ€œStart talking.โ€

    Too late, she realized that sheโ€™d spoken to this man as if she knew him. Not as if sheโ€™d only met him once.

    His eyes narrowed. โ€œAre you going to let me in, or am I expected to carry on standing in the rain?โ€ he asked, in a voice that could have been more polite, in her opinion.

    He sounded as if they already knew each other, or should have known each other, or it was her own damn fault if they didnโ€™t know each other. Because one stranger didnโ€™t talk to another stranger in that way.

    โ€œYouโ€™re not coming in here until I get a few answers,โ€ she said.

    โ€œIn the interests of not dying of hypothermia, fire away.โ€

    โ€œI saw you this morning,โ€ she said. โ€œDidnโ€™t I?โ€

    โ€œYou did,โ€ he said. โ€œI tried to talk to you then, but you disappeared into the fog before I had a chance to say a single word.โ€

    โ€œOkay…” She chewed on her lower lip. “What did you want to say to me, anyway?โ€

    โ€œLet me in,โ€ he said. โ€œAnd you’ll find out.โ€

    โ€œNo,โ€ she said. โ€œIโ€™m here all by myself, and I’m not going to let in someone I don’t even know!โ€ Too late, she kicked herself inwardly. That was exactly the kind of thing that the doomed girl always said to the serial killer just before he whipped out the axe and started chopping.

    โ€œI want to talk to you, Ginny Weasley.โ€ He fixed her with those strange, crystal-like gray eyes.”And you need to know what I can tell you.”

    The world wavered around her, and she clutched onto the windowsill for support.

    He knew her name.

    She didn’t, couldn’t know him. But she was all too afraid that he knew her.

    That’s da Vinci’s Lady with a Ferret, of course. Apropos, don’t you think, considering who Ginny is talking to? ๐Ÿ˜‰
