:bulletred: My Journal - Jan 2010




Well first of all Happy new year 2008 by Synfull

Funnily enough this is how i started my last Journal.
What a quick year it has been, i have to admit i have missed my dA family, though being a single mum of 2 kids kinda overtook me.

Logan is now 14mths & Shaun is 6, they really are my life, and though i never wanted to be a single parent, i wouldnt have it any other way to be without my beautiful children,

The kids - xmas 2010 by Smirnoff-Sweetie

As ever i would like to thank all my :+devwatch:, and all those who have downloaded & :+fav: my resources.

I am hoping that at somepoint this year i will have the time and patience to create one again. I pop in from time to time and i see that all my friends are always busy creating and i am jealous at how much you have all improved.
I am in awe at so many of you this year, your creations are simply beautiful and amazing.

For this journal i will simply provide some of the :+fav:'s ive seen so far from my friends.
See you all soon i hope :wave:

:bulletred: My Journal - Jan 2010




Well first of all Happy new year 2008 by Synfull

:bulletred: Its been a while since i was online here, mainly due to the birth of my daughter Logan on 1/11/09.
She arrived 2 weeks early [as expected] after a few weeks of horrendous pain and symptoms.
Despite being in hospital for 3 or 4 days prior to the birth my actual labour only lasted 3 hrs & i achieved my VBAC [vaginal birth after cesarean] birth


My Logan by Smirnoff-Sweetie


:bulletred: While it may be some-time till i get properly back into creation mode i am having a clear out of resources e.t.c while the little lady is sleeping lol.
As ever i would like to thank all my :+devwatch:, and all those who have downloaded & :+fav: my resources.

:bulletred: My resolution to myself is that i would like to learn to digital paint properly!
I have made several attempts so far, but in no way have made any attempt that to me looks realistic.

If anyone can offer me any help/advice or point me to a photoshop tutorial that may help my quest then i would be obliged.

:bulletred:My Resources</u> :bulletred:

I would like to take the opportunity to feature some of the amazing images that have been created using my stocks.

:bulletred:  Well time is certainly flying by....I am now 27+ weeks.
Logan Anne Hill as i will be naming her, is very active and kicking me like crazy :lmao:

I am due 13th November, but i expect to deliver a week or 2 before that due to previous complications with Gestational Diabetes & Pre-eclampsia with my first pregnancy, i am being monitored quite closely. I also spend a few days as an inpatient 2 weeks ago, but all is okay on the mend.
I actually believe i am a week further on!


I have been creating again since my last journal :heart:

A Mothers Love by Smirnoff-Sweetie The Witching Hour by Smirnoff-Sweetie


:bulletred:I have been diagnosed with SPD, nasty pregnancy related diagnosis which restricts my back and pelvic movement and creates a great deal of pain :pissed:

Most of time of late has been spent surfing for prams & other baby related bargains and i have to say i am practically all set....Pram being purchased in the next week or so!

It came to my attention from AF-studios & LuneBleu's Journal entry about a Phishing Spam mail alert which has hit dA.
I have experienced this before on Bebo lately!

The problem lies within the users, not dA! Once the virus gets onto your computer, it automatically sends messages from YOUR computer, not dA's servers!

This method of attack is often called zombification. Your computer is turned into a "zombie" (No, im not talking Resident Evil or Dawn of the Dead, that is what there called!) and the trojan can allow "hackers" access to your computer, and they can use your computer to spam others, if not more!

Not only is this dangerous, but this is illegal for you! If you dont have up-to-date, anti-virus, firewalls and spyware/malware protection. Your computer has a unique address of where it is located (Internet Protocol Address/IP Address) if a hacker uses your computer to spam, or worse ... Hack into someone elses, you ARE the one at fault if you dont have the following!

- Updates for your OS (Whether it be Windows, Linux, Mac or something else)
- Up-to-Date Anti-Virus (If you dont want to pay for one, i recommend 'AVG FREE' just do a Google search)
- Up-to-Date Anti-Spyware (Again, if you dont want to pay for one, do a search for 'AdAware Free Edition')
- Firewall (The one that comes with Windows XP and Vista is fine)
- A good strong password (XP Users - Boot your computer in Safe Mode, and assign a password to the built-in Administrator account. This is a common backdoor for trojans!

WARNING!

McAfee does NOT detect the virus, so if you use that download AVG or a trial version of either Kaspersky (#1 Anti-Virus) or Norton Internet Security Suite

Info from Wiki

A zombie computer (often shortened as zombie) is a computer attached to the Internet that has been compromised by a hacker, a computer virus, or a trojan horse. Generally, a compromised machine is only one of many in a botnet, and will be used to perform malicious tasks of one sort or another under remote direction. Most owners of zombie computers are unaware that their system is being used in this way. Because the owner tends to be unaware, these computers are metaphorically compared to zombies.

Taken from Bebo Labs to update your knowledge

It seems that it's being spread in an automatic way comments like "Hey. I think i saw your picture on this website/blog here CLICK HERE". Everytime someone clicks on the link, it logs out automatically and nothing more happens. From there, the message starts circulating again, using your nickame, as if you were the sender.


If you see some comment from me (or from someone else) with that sentence, please DO NOT CLICK. You will only be logged out and you'll be starting to automatically send that message to others as well.

dA Staff is already aware of this Phishing Spam situation and they're trying to fix it as soon as possible.

This is my 2nd News article :wow:
My First being : dA, A Winter Wonderland


Spring is approaching (I hope soon),

& I have been considering some Springtime manipulations.

While surfing the most popular photo manipulations listed under "Spring", I have found some spectacular works.
Also some from people who have very little view's on them.
I must also say there are so many items listed under “Spring” that I really could not fathom why? :lmao:

:bulletgreen: Below I have listed a selection of the deviations that I liked best :heart:
I hope that you like them too. :wave:

Hi There :wave:

Welcome to my first NEWS as a dA member :w00t:
I am relatively new to submitting artwork to dA and find fantastic inspiration from viewing the work of the 1000's of magical piece's within the site!

Inkeeping with the spirit of the season, i'd like to show you some of the fantastic Winter Manipulation's that i have found on my most recent browse with in the site.

I hope that maybe you might find them as magical as i have and provide some unknown artists like myself a little interest :heart:
