I finally got Native Instruments Komplete 12 in the mail. So I figured I'd install it in a bit. However, for reasons unknown to me it takes NI a good hour or six to unzip 200GB of files from one USB3.0 disk to another and run a few updates, so I'm hoping it'll be installed before I go to bed today. (-_-')

I'm itching to get to play with it. Over the weekend I've been watching a bunch of tutorials on the various tools that are in it and I am very impressed by the possibilities alone.

Other than that, I've had another D&D session the other day. Surprising absolutely no-one, I love to make maps for my battles and locations.

Don't worry it's gonna spend another eight hours updating as soon as it's installed.

My library had a giant book called "the history of graphical information presentation" or something like that. I thought of you.

Yeah I'm gunna let it run all night, maybe that'll be enough time to massage the ones and pamper the zeroes or whatever the hell it's preoccupied with.

There are a bunch of mediocre coffee table books around with /r/dataisbeautiful levels of incompetence. Some are actually good, but they're usually not the ones I find in bookstores or libraries.
