Hodgepodge the Third


Daggers!  My old PC, the one I use for secretly recording all my Skype and phone calls and for scanning inkblots, finally went south.  A decade is a good run for a PC that never had any maintenance.  While I didn't really loose any data, my ancient-ass scanner (some might remember this unlisted vid) does not get any support for Windows 7.

Now, I do have this laptop which I plan on having two OSs on, so hopefully that will take care of that problem.  Worst case scenario: I'll take photos of the blots instead of scanning.  Boo-hoo me, right?  First World problem and all that.

Speaking of photos:

I like binders.

I finally got organized and put all the blots (which were actually starting to fade a little) in to these handy binders.  A few more than I realized.  And yes, in the center there is the new Coffee Table Book V2.  Not sure how that is going to get dispenced.

Hey look, Colin B got his (V1) Coffee Table Book.  I wonder if he noticed any errors.  Maybe him and D4 and Dustee can figure out what my little production snafu was.

Colin also put his other 'prizes' to good use:

More shenanigans are located here
 Hopefully we'll get a picture from Dustee with her prizes.  They are not just for my personal enjoyment, but help serve as proof that I am not gathering addresses to hunt people down and force them to stare at inkblots while I slowly peel their skin off.  Completley unrelated: I cleaned our office!  And my phone does mosaic pictures...


Hopefully I won't forget to put up the poll after I submit this post.  I need guidance from anyone that is paying attention to this blog.  We are spending time getting Open To Interpretation 2 going (no really, it takes some time!) so my 'other' computer time is limited.  Vote on what you think I should be doing with that time.

As always, let us know what you see in the inkblot (or any of them) and send in your drawings/interpretations/comments to st.inkblots@gmail.com

  1. I REFUSE TO INTERPRET ANY BLOTS THAT ARE SHOWN TO ME IN PICTURE FORMAT AND NOT SCANNED FORMAT

    and, honestly, i've been staring at each page for like 20 minutes and can't find any mistakes
    ARE YOU JUST MESSING WITH MY HEAD? :(
    The only thing i've found that MIGHT be it would be a slim black line to the left side of the panda blot, but i don't think that's it

    i'd say the blog needs more female nudity, but what kind of person would that make me?

  4. Nocturne... totally Nocturne. Completely related, Windows 7 has an XP Mode. You might be able to use that to get your scanner working. Should work... but I'm not sure.

    Also, my phone can't take mosaics... Awwww... O wait. I am magic. Nevermind... Carry on.

  8. A bug beetle thing on the blot o.o.

    Voted.

    Also, I'm with Coliin. The only thing I've been able to spot is the thin line on that one blot. But I always figured it was part of the scanning?

    As far as the scanner goes, I've been able to make some xp stuff work on 7 by following online instructions on the particular ones. And sometimes, like runewake said, it can be made easier using xp mode. Just insert the driver and right click and mess about. Or actually google it. Model number, windows 7, and such. Yep.
