I rode the public bus for the first time in my life yesterday and took my laptop to Circuit City to get fixed, since that is where it was bought. It seems that it was a hardware and software issue causing the problem, but they won’t be able to fix it for a few days. Luckily, I explained to them how I have extremely important website work to do, so one of the tech guys kindly grabbed some of my files for me, since the hard drive is still reachable. He couldn’t grab everything because I have the scan files scattered all over the place, so I just took what I could get. I think we only missed around 9 of them, which is no big deal, since I will be asking my source to resend me the files (I will probably have them edited and uploaded by the end of the day).
I would also like to thank Katie, Amy, and Andrew for each letting me use their laptops last night and right now. I used them to edit the remaining scans all the way until 4 AM, then woke up again to finish them at 8 (without my beloved Photoshop, making everything take five times longer). As of now, even though some of the scans are still missing because the tech guy couldn’t find them on my hard drive, we are only really missing Porygon-Z, Cresselia Lv.X, Darkrai Lv.X, and Palkia Lv.X, so if you get any of these cards on Saturday, please send us in a high-quality scan at 300 DPI!
The full [Great Encounters] set list is now up and running! It contains links to all of our scans now, so you don’t have to scroll through all of the news stories.
As for the “Phione Scandal” yesterday involving a small group of the community getting mad over the fake scan, I think some of you need to take a chill pill. If you can’t take a joke, then don’t come here – I play pranks all the time, and if you don’t like that, no one is forcing you to type in this website’s URL. In fact, once the new website goes up and it has a new back end, I will gladly prevent you from coming here all together. Until I am paid for my free services, or am under contract by someone that sets out certain guidelines for me, I’ll do what I want. I’ve had a rough week, and if I want to play a joke, I will, especially after all the rudeness going on. I. don’t. owe. you. people. anything. I’m pretty sure I’ve done enough for you all over the years, especially during this week with all that is going on in my life (much of which you do not know about). ‘Tis all.
