Techno-Lust

For some reason, late last week I started wanting to completely overhaul my computer setup-- in short, I'm in the throes of raging techno-lust. I want to get a big, fancy Mac, and a top-of-the-line Cintiq to use on it, all for the purpose of drawing furries, ponies, and Ghostbusters. Go fig.

I did buy myself a terrific little color printer, and I have no regrets. But the rest? $3,000+ dollars of hardware and software when I've already got a system that works? Why, lizard brain? What's your motivation? Why now? And why that setup? You do know that we're looking at the real possibility of an income drop soon, right?

Will I indulge? No. I splurged on that scale last year with the proton pack, I can't justify doing it again. I'd be better off investing a bit of money into sexing up my current (working) system. A new tablet that doesn't keep forgetting how to be pressure-sensitive? I might be able to cover that with commissions. I don't need an enormous iMac just for that.

Stop pouting, lizard brain. Don't think I don't see what you're doing there.
