Ok, so my computer has gone ahead and thrown a whole lot of warnings at me saying that my C:\ and D:\ disks are failing, so im basically backing up all my stuff and will not use my computer much at all until I can replace its HD.
Word of warning to anyone interested in buying a HP dv6 from around 2010/11: these computers have a maximum lifespan of 3 years. There is a flaw in the cooling system that causes the computer to eventually effectively melt itself. This can be postponed by having an external fan blasting it when you notice a temperature spike.
I will not be able to post further art until this problem has been fixed, either by replacing the HD or getting a new computer.
This is going to be very interesting.
