New Kat Wallpaper

Hello all.

Sorry for the delay, Mysti’s power and internet was out most of today, so the coloring didn’t get finished. So here is a bit of filler to keep you entertained while she colors tomorrow. The page should be up on Thursday. If you want to download the wallpaper, there is the lower rez version in the goodies section, but if you want to login, you can download the high rez version from the Rewards store for free.

If you are interested, there is also some nice fiction being posted in the forums by Sterling, you might want to go and have a read.

I also have a quick question to the more-tech-savvy-than-I, if you will indulge me. My main monitor has developed a bit of a strange problem. Its a flatscreen LCD, Viewsonic. It looks like everything is sort of.. well smeared. Its still clear enough but everything looks like the color is being smeared to the right. I can also clearly see a roll going on. Does this mean I need a new monitor? Or is there a way to fix this? I’ve tried new drivers, but that didn’t seem to do anything. I have a secondary display (much smaller) which seems to have no problems, suggesting to me its a hardware issue with the monitor, would the geeks concur? And if so, is it repairable or do I need a new one?

  1. Yup, if the other display works fine, then it likely is the monitor or something between it and the computer. Is the cable on the wonky monitor removable? If so, make sure it’s seated well at both the computer and the monitor. If it was, try another cable before you replace the monitor.

  2. I agree with Eidolon on this, could be a bad seating with the cable connected to the video card or…I hate to say things like this, or the age of the monitor could be another factor but I am not sure how long you had it.

    Also on another note,, when I went to the Shifters Reward Store and clicked on the download link for the Alice wallpaper, it kicked me back to the front page of the current comic. Just wanted to let you know.

    1. I will check the cables. and the monitor is getting on a bit. I think its about 5-6 years old now. About the Rewards store, I got a new binary (I’m beta testing it) and was alerted to this issue yesterday. I’ve reported it, and it appears we’ve discovered a bug here. A fix should be coming soon. I’ll let everyone know when the issue is resolved.

  3. The easiest way to verify this is to just plug another monitor into that same port. If it replicates then there are greater issues. Since there aren’t any symptoms showing up on the other monitors then I would say that it is just going bad and needs a replacement.

  4. Is this what Alice sees after she’s had catnip?
