Here's my first original ATC sized watercolor (I did two others from tutorials in a book so they don't count!). Pretty fun, huh?!
What's really pathetic is, I made her as a hostess gift for a swap and now I can't give her up! I'll probably make another of the same pic and send that in her place...
Off to paint some more...

Well, the old dinosaur is up to the task! A memory upgrade and installation of XP SP2 did the trick!. There were a couple of rounds getting the "USB<->serial" port driver set up and configured. Modified the KNK software presets for the correct COM Port (Lucky 6!) and "Wallah!" the KNK hummed right thru a test cut! Life does NOT suck entirely!
Well, it is sucky just a little bit as the car ate my laptop funds today: Waterpump, belt, labor, bleh!
But then again, bless Murphy for making me wait to get that laptop...hmmmmm, could BIGGER forces be at work here? I dunno, we'll have to see...(cue the creepy music!)

Couldn't wait to share progress so far (AND it's getting late!) so I'll let everyone know soonest if the poor old thing can run the KNK.
