How I miss my GI Joe. He loved pate, hot jazz, and me.  

Okay, peeps, it's that time of, er, day again. I WANTER KNOW STUFF.

Q1) What the hell is this 'enabler' thing? As in 'blast you, you vile enablers' etc. OH GOD SOMEONE TELL ME  BEFORE I BURST.

Ans) *

Q2) Tablets. Oh arteestes, I am assuming that this isn't you scraping on a big hunka burning stone (I know, I'm kind of steeped in Catholic imagery, so the first thing I think of when someone says 'I used a tablet' is Moses and the Commandments (10). Or that might be Jewish, I DO NOT KNOW).

Ans) *

* This is where you lot come in.

Today, I was told that I was a very happy person and that it rubbed off and this was a Good thing (Pageant Peter) and received a declaration of love. WHO KNEW THAT HATING VEGETUBBLES COULD GET YOU THAT SORT OF THUNG. HUH. NOT ME.

(I offered to cheer on Pageant Peter in his interpretive dance that he WILL do for me by throwing vegetables, including organic carrots, even though they are hard to come by and disgusting. Plus addedendum that I hate all vegetables and fruit ever invented. Cue David saying, "You don't like any vegetables? That's incredible!" and me replying, "That's the first time I've been called incredible," and David adding, "But I LOVE you."

I will not be having any blind dates with veggies, I don't care, though.)

My 'enablers' are people who enable me to write things I wouldn't. Like I'll mention a cracked out fic idea to my friend zinjadu, and then she'll encourage me to write it and give me ideas for how it would work.

Tablets are these attachment things that are like... screens, that you draw on with a pen thingy that attach to the computer so what you draw shows up onscreen. And I am sure there are many more people who can explain it better than I can!

Like ... people with cow prods, sort of thing? Okay. Does that apply to RL or just to fandom?

They sound massive! I suppose they are wildly expensive, though, much like Photoshop.

*has just died*

A tablet is just a device with a pressure sensitive pad, which allows you to use an attached pen to draw, color or write. It all appears right on your screen in whatever program you're using.

You make a fine-lookin' corpse, madam.

But do you then need a proper programme in which to work with it, or does it come with software? And -- prices?

A graphics tablet:

They are pure wonderment and I don't know how I ever lived without one! I bought that one off the interweb for about €150, but I got a smaller one here in backwardsland Ireland for about €70 a year or two ago.
And thus ends my expertise.

Drawing on a stone tablet would be awesome, dude.

Ah, just someone I wanted to hear from! I knew you had one. SO. Where are they -- PC World, that sort of thing? And do you need Photoshop/a graphics programme for them to work?

150 (and how do you get the euro sign?!! OMG I LOSE AT LIFE) isn't much. Whee.

WOULDN'T IT JUST? Hard, though.

The vile enabler thing is like when you give me over-detailed ideas about J/S porn to write and then I do it.

I have a tablet, woman, and you just run it with photoshop, or whatever. You can buy it with photoshop included. Is simple.

Are you drunk? Are you drunk and sexing on vegetables? What's going on?

kxx
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 16th, 2006 02:27 pm (UTC)
I KNEW I WAS AN ENABLER. I FEEL SO FULFILLED YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

Yes, do you KNOW how much Photoshop costs? Seven hundred euro, that's how much. I know you're not supposed to rate love by cost, but my parents sure don't love me that much. I shudder to think how much it'd cost PLUS Photoshop.

I have kind of a ... reputation, shall we say, in my class, for living on nothing but chocolate and toast (which is true). It's one way to kick start a conversation, that's for sure. "EW THAT'S AN APPLE IN YOUR HAND TAKE IT AWAY BEFORE IT DEFILES ME!!" kind of thing.

Thank you, again.

At the risk of repeating another, an enabler, while it is someone who can help another do things they normally wouldn't feel able to do, is also someone who helps another along on more nefarious paths in life. A woman who constantly apologizes for her abusive husband is being an enabler, because she is 'enabling' him to continue in his ways.
If someone says nothing to another, their silence can be seen as enabling.

Sorry to put a downer to the good side of being an enabler. :(

It's natural for light to have a corresponding dark. At least (so I flatter myself) I'm not that kind of enabler. I just make people announce their love for me, embarrassingly and in public.

Okay, so maybe that's a little suspect ...

the first thing I think of when someone says 'I used a tablet' is Moses and the Commandments (10).

*snort* Oh lord, that's me too. (Actually I didn't even know what in heck a tablet was (woe, my knowledge of things computer-y and artist-y is pitiful) until my bestest, wisest friend (an Artist with a capital A. Actually it's more like "I am an Arteeste! You better recognize!".) kindly informed me. ^__^ Else I'd be wondering why everyone was suddenly so enamored with chiseling away at bits of stone.

every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 17th, 2006 12:58 am (UTC)
Yup, me also! However, I've seen enough bloody gorgeous art to realise that it's not quite a stonemason-y business.

Damn, I should probably ask my parents for Microsoft Office, not a tablet. Or even a couple of DVD boxsets. CHOICE = EVIL.

And that LOOK on people's faces. Like it's your duty as a human to have a barely-concealed craving for the odd Brussels Sprout. "Not even one?" "NO!"

Jah, I did, nicely. Have deffo decided on the birfday pressies.
muchspork on January 17th, 2006 02:43 am (UTC)
omg tablets! i can explain! pick me!

they're "human interface hardware", and they generally look like cool metallic painted smooth-aerdoynamically designed pieces of sqaure/rectangular plastic. they come in all different sizens, from like... 10 by 14 cms to nearly as big as A3 paper. the central part of the tablet (it has a border) is its active part. they come with a pen and when the pen touches the active part the computer recognises it as something liek a mouse, onyl much more sophisticated. Wacom (the leading brand) tablets have pens and pads that are pressure sensitive, and have digital erasers on the other end (you just flip it roudn to rub out on whatever program ur using). Wacoms also use absolute positioning (where the active pad is liek a scale model of the screen, so if you put the pen to the corner, it goes to the corner of the screen), but other just work like a mouse (so you put the pen to the pad, and move the mouse, but its not relative or anything).

i have a little Wacom that cost me 134 Australian Dollars (it is my baby)

:D

Well, this comment is so late in coming that I'm sure all your questions have been answered, but I'm glad you had a good day. I'm back at school and totally swamped until I sort through everything and get back in the habit of doing homework, and adjust to working 10 hours a week in addition to classes and homework (AHHHHOMGSTRESSSSS), but I will be back in a week or so (I HOPE).

Aw. I've had two-three weeks to get used to that, now. I was thinking that must be why you weren't around as much! Still, you'll handle it. I have absolute faith in you!

And fandom ain't going nowhere.
