Dear Computer Servers of CalArts,
Mysteriously deleting my files isn't cool. However, I backed up 90% of it--don't do that again.
So I logged onto the lab computer and ta da! ALL of my scanned animation was gone. I had backed up stuff earlier, but not all of it. I lost a good chunk of my alpha channeled scenes, some stuff I scanned, etc. However, I rendered everything out before this happened so I still have a film---Thank God. So heed my warning both people on campus and off---back your stuff UP! Several times over if need be. I would be in a panic attack, in a corner somewhere had I not had a backup. I would have lost everything. Again, thankfully not. Anyways, not a good way to start any Friday, however my Friday ends with an evening spent in lectures involving Pixar and Andreas Deja.
Oh yeah, today the official sign-up for lab computers began(only like 50 computers, 4 of which have scanners. There's about 160 people in the department, so computer schedules are absolutely needed) We're in the final stretch!
P.S. I know this is a little late, but if you're coming to CalArts tomorrow for that Accepted Student Event feel free to let me know. I'll be hanging around and could give a tour or two. Just look for the curly hair. :) Otherwise, enjoy! You'll be living here soon enough!
