Once again, I've been in a bit of a slump. Admittedly, I've never been in one quite like this before. I even abandoned my weekly webcomic. It looks like I'm finding the means to take some baby steps out of it. Keep your fingers crossed.
Also, I discovered that my old laptop that has been faithfully helping me all these years just doesn't have the minimum requirements for Adobe any more. Well color me surprised! Fortunately, my company offers a program for buying hardware from Dell, so while it's a bit more than I hoped to spend, it does have a lot more computing power, ram and storage than I thought I could afford.
BTW, my rule of thumb for buying computers is never buy the minimum for your needs. Always try to get more than you think you'll need. That way you'll get a lot more mileage from your purchase.
