Hmmmm..... [Aug. 19th, 2004|12:20 pm]

My hibiscus plant is in full bloom, which is a great sign, as are my Mexican Petunias. However, they're all lying flat on the ground (as opposed to standing up taller than I am....). I was worried that the hurricane had wiped them out, but maybe they're just resting.....

Let me see..... yesterday was bloody exciting (sarcasm). Lots of computer crap. I spent all day burning backup discs of my uber-high-res images, backing up files, etc. etc. etc. Then of course, recording where which files were kept and on which discs, etc. I also decided to start storing my eBay images separately than my website, since my website has been reaching near its bandwidth limit, mostly from my eBay/eBay store images. I like my website host, and their software, and I REALLY didn't feel like moving it =P So I found a new hosting company for http://www.strangeling.org (COMPLETELY SEPERATE from http://www.strangeling.com , my actual site) ONLY to keep my eBay images, etc. I found a host that lets me have 5 gigs of transfer a DAY, very cheaply, with a high guaranteed uptime, which is what I need. Perfect solution. I don't think just eBay alone will exceed that bandwidth, and if it does (lol - I'd have to be getting a LOT of hits!) then it would at least re-set the next morning. And my regular site itself won't be affected >^_^<

In other news, I went ahead and put a new graphics card in my computer, since my old one was fried. Matt & I both re-activated our Dark Age of Camelot accounts =) I had been thinking about getting FFXI and maybe eventually EQ2, but both will require me to get at least one new computer (since Matt & I play together, of course!), so I'm going to wait on that. In the meantime I can get my MMORPG fix with DAOC if I want to, hehe.

This morning I've been making the never-ending prints, and trying miserably to catch up on email (actually, I did pretty well!). I'm really tired of sitting at my computer though now, so I'm going to PAINT! I'm not sure what yet, I'm just going to start slapping paint down and see what comes out!

You can watch me here shortly HERE on my webcam!

Busy, Busy!! So you couldn’t just transfer your domain name over? or did you want to change it to .org? I clicked on the link there, it seems as though you already have it, that you just need to change it all over? because its linking to your old site right now? I need to back up all my files and images to.. especially my psd files, if something happened I would be screwed lol, Tom wants to get a usb hard drive for that.. so we have to buy one. I think thats cool that you and matt play a game together on the puter, I really want to play never winter knights with my hubby, but we only have one puter and his laptop cant handle a game like that..once he starts getting paid from his new job, maybe we can get him a new laptop, that can play! But I probably should be using the time to paint.

Oh no - I just registered www.strangeling.org yesterday. I'm ONLY going to use it for eBay webhosting, hehe. I just thought I'd put that up as the index page so it wouldn't have the "under construction" placeholder in case anybody bothered to look it up, lol. I'm just going to use it for remote file hosting of eBay images, etc. It's a completely separate entity than my actual website. I actually have a bunch of domains that all point to my main site - http://www.jasminetoad.com , http://www.jasminebecketgriffith.com , http://www.jasminebecket-griffith.com , and even some mis-spellings like http://www.jasminebeckettgriffith.com (since people for some reason like to add an extra t on Becket, lol!!!). I'm such a geek!

Oh yes! Neverwinter Nights is an awesome game - I actually have that one too, hehe. Haven't played for awhile though.... I think I like the first-person-perspective ones. Yeah, Matt & I have gaming computers right next to each other and we play together in the game as husband and wife.

What host you using? I am already for 5 years with hostrocket.com and I am so happy I can't imagine what I was doing without them - they are simply the best.

I also registered www.mariavanbruggen.com couple of month ago after hearing all the stories about others using your name...LOL

I mostly have separate directory on my domain for my ebay images - it is easier to follow and to delete them when its not needed anymore.

adams family

so i had this revalation last night. how much you and alot of your painting remind me of christina ricci when she plays wednesday on adam family values movie. it was hilarious..brad and i were watching it last night and i told him that it seemed so much like you it was a bit eerie. then they get her to smile in the movie and she reminded me of so many of your little fairy paintings.

Re: adams family

Hehe, you wouldn't believe how many stop me to tell me that, lol. One time at the post office people kept whispering about it! Of course, I think I'm about half a foot taller and three cup sizes smaller ;)

coolness

I didn't know you played EQ. I've only been playing for 6 months, but love it. I'm glad to hear you fared well throughout the Hurricane. You're painting "Looking for Faeries" is awesome. Looking forward to your future pieces. I'm determined to get one of your originals sometime in the near future. LOL. Hasn't worked so far. TTFN

Re: coolness

Oh yes!!! I played EQ on and off for the past several years, starting and restarting my account, lol. Then I switched to Dark Age of Camelot for awhile, and today I started up Final Fantasy XI Online!!! I love the big online RPGs - they sure are time burglars though!!!
