It's so warm my computer has shut down from overworking its fans (although the fans being dusty didn't help) twice now. If I can't even draw, the next TotMW post will end up delayed, but let's hope not.

Winter, you're welcome back any day now.

Edit: Holy shit that was a lot of dust. Pretty much every part had its own little collection. I think the CPU's fan was basically obstructed so it shut itself down, which left me with a black screen and only the other fans running.

Also this has happened before, but this time was worse.

  1. Is was surely because of the dust.
    Summer feels warm to us but effectively it will only be about 10-15°C warmer inside than in Winter, when you heat your home. So to the Computer it won't make that much of a difference.
    It's a good idea anyway to clean your computer about every 3 month.
    But good, that it's working again. Looking forward to new drawings. :)

    1. You're right about that.

      I tend to get a little jittery about this computer as I've been expecting it to die for years now yet it keeps hanging in there.

  2. I hope you have backup copies of your work and everything in general

    Do not clean the pc with a small clean brush very delicately so as not to have these problems

    by the way I love your style keep it that way

  3. Yeah, it's a good idea to clean it at least every 3 months...and either keep a vacuum nearby, wear a mask or take it outside to clean.
