In the meantime, I got my pay stub tonight, and after withdrawing the rest of Mom's money on the way home (for which I took the direct route, as I felt like taking it easy this time), have about four hundred dollars more. Some will go to my savings as soon as I log into Easyweb again, and the rest, well, maybe to a new external drive, but chkdsk appears to have fixed the problem(s) with that other one, and I still don't know whether or not I should trust it to be in perfect working order again. Either way, I also want more userpics for here at the moment. There are a couple specific designs I would quite like to have, but sure enough, I don't have anybody to go to, unless I ask one of the people I've commissioned before. Such is the reason I'm using this new one now, but yeah. Perhaps I'll have to send out one or two new emails tomorrow. Or even tonight at that, but for the moment I'm much to worried about whoever I contact responding to say "No, I'm not accepting new commissions right now. Sorry". That and I'm also decidedly tired, but I was up until ~8am yesterday, so it's no wonder. Oh, well there goes one option now that I've gone to check. The one artist I did have in mind to contact is apparently no longer accepting commissions of any sort. That still doesn't rule out at least one other possibility, but now I'll actually have to send that message out before I finish for the night.
I think I might just do that and be done too, but just before I do, some thoughts I didn't get to last night. This torrent George wants me to download is 201GB. If I only have enough space for it by deleting other things, how well off will he be? I asked how much free space he had on his computer tonight, and his answer was "100 gigabytes" so definitely not. I did suggest he buy an external drive, and he seems to be taking that under consideration, but even so, the torrent is going to literally be months downloading. I'm only 25% of the way through season 1 after two days, and in this complete set of files (which isn't even the whole series to date), there are twenty-six seasons. Yes, 26. By the time I'm done here, I might very well ask him for some compensation. $10, maybe $20 at most, because while we do have unlimited bandwidth, that's an awful lot of stuff to be downloading just out of generosity. I like the feeling and everything, but I've been averaging 200GB per month thus far, and that's with all internet-related activity combined.
Anyways, I have an email to send out, and then sleep. As with everybody else, I hope they'll have responded by the time I wake up~
