The legs good then? Outstanding! Or at least out sitting. No more pens and needles. Pain-free is good, MacPloos. You're taking care of yourself and that's the best Artistic expression anyone can have.

Paint on, for England! for Brighton! and for your fine self! (. . . oh, and of course us, what loves ta watch your cavalcade o' paints.)

Not sure, but the White Cliffs of Dover isn't exactly a blank canvas for just any old muralist. Bet you could do a grand mural there, wot?

Dennay forget yer sketch book. But ya gotta be quick cause they're no too big on holdin' a pose. Got 'em in action, ye done.

Good stuff. I guess riding yer economic stylus, ye got ta master it ta get yer quality lines.

So bring me up to speed. Why can't you use your Wacom stylus again? You said your tech flew the coop. But what was he shouting over his shoulder at ya through his cloud of dust? It was working now it's not. Why not?

Methinks ye need ta upgrade yer hired help. I still say get the three year old next door what ye been paintin'. Bet he could sort ya in a nonce.

You sure that considering the painting you're working on you didn't mean you're both "knockered"?

You are sounding like you and your mouse are pals out on the town till all hours, with one tuxedo between you. You wear the top hat, and your mouse wears the tails.

Hi Capt'n Mac yeah spot on fell arse over tip last night blood from left leg so bunged on some TCP so we'll so what the nurse says
when she comes this morning OK CIAO SLAINTE

D Akey
11-10-2017, 03:49 AM
Tsk tsk. MacPloos, brawlin' wif yer mouse? And he done threw ya. Well we now know who put the "artist" in "martial artist".

I trust you're aware that the old saying that tells you how to set the clocks, "Spring forward. Fall back." does not suggest that you need to physically perform the acrobatics of it. It means you adjust the time on your clocks in a particular direction. . . I think. My druids in the yard went AWOL so I have no advisors on Time at the mo.

But do take care of yourself, my dear fellow. Hope the fall wasn't too bad. Skin is a lot more tender after a certain age. You can look at it cross-eyed and it bruises. Are you having that kind of trouble in general or was it only because of the fall?

See if you can get the nurse to fix your tablet pens. Won't hurt to ask.

Go man go!!!!!!!! And easy does it 'till ye gets yer sea legs again.

11-10-2017, 07:43 AM
Hi Capt'n Mac The nurse has been and had a look she seems quiet happy not a cut just a graze but checked my Barnett for
bruise then gave me the full works blood pressure ect; and passed me fit for at least another week :Dok CIAO SLAINTE

11-14-2017, 08:08 AM
So you're experience a sort of personal Renaissance reviving the old Roman civilization. Go man go, Mikey diAngelo! Paint that ceiling.

Hope the walking is something you can build up with practice. Keeping the body moving is very important, lest it think you're not going to take it out of the garage anymore.

Say hello to your mouse for me. He's doing you a good service. You should give him a chunk of Gouda or palette knife out a swath of Camembert as a treat.

11-14-2017, 02:12 PM
Hi Capt'n Mac yeah Ceasar's files from wayback was going to do more

Got a feeling like the picture in the attic from the story The Picture of Dorian Gray.

So how's the walking going? Don't make it where your mouse has to put cheese out as a prize. Move them legs for Queen and Country!

MacPloos, did you get your pens yet? Time to post a letter to Santa.

You seem to be handling the mouse just fine. But of course a stylus is always better, especially when you have gotten used to it. Hope you are having a good winter, keeping warm and that you're walking about your living space on a regular basis. You gotten any snow yet?

As to myself: I thought I had a detached cornea. was getting flashes out of the corner of my eye -- nose too close to the grind stone I suspect. Ophthalmologist says it's that my vitreous fluid leaked a bit is all. And as the flashing is subsiding I think I can get back to doing art. It's now the floaters that bother me though. Anyway, there's no pain. Just the distraction of it. Ah, the dimensions of life. Fetch hither my guitar!

Here's a hoot. My mom and step-father are on a cruise to Panama -- at 92 the both of them. His knees are very bad but other than that he's fine. Hope they're having a grand time of it.

Go man go!!!!!!!!

Thanks Dm7. Yes I do try. To copy them this was a trace. But I prefer to draw them myself. But as I had lost the use
of my pens. So had to use the mouse. Not yet Finn. As the right eye looks a squint were IWent mad with to much white.
Plus I don't like the macÚronie runs at the back of the Mirrow yes I've looked at your melon with the Elf whichI I like. Plus using the oil brush which I tend to keep away from :p Ok. CIAO. SLAINTE

HI Capt'n Mac well I did try from Monoprice uk And after 2 hours was talking to Sarah TI did ask about shiping charges she said yes but no charge if you collect from the

depot at Rancho Cucamonga .Ca Thats when I relized Sarah T was In Yanky land
not limey Land :D so if I post to them how long would it take in a Rowing boat ???

12-06-2017, 07:05 PM
WC Fields: "RANCHO CUCAMUNGA! Ah yeeessss. . . They've got your pen. . . that's quite a pickle."

Okay. I bought my grandson near Manhattan something from Amazon UK a few years back and I ordered it way in advance of his birthday thinking it would take weeks to get through customs and all. Well, it got to his door in like 14 hours. I looked on the tracking page the day after I bought it and it said it had already been delivered. I contacted Amazon UK and they said that it showed it had in fact already been delivered. It had to be a mistake. I then called my son and they had actually gotten it.

Will that speed happen with your pen from RANCHO CUCAMUNGA? Hell if I know. However, it might not get snagged in customs going your way. Or they could take it on a slow boat to China, all by itself, alone. And head that direction. But the usual time could be like around a week if they put it in the mail that day you order it.

Anyway, nice impression of Santa Claus in that last painting you posted. He's on shore leave in his civvies. Probably heading down to that part of town to get a head start on finding if some of the gals been nautical or nice.

I can't guess the time for you to get the pen, but lots of the shippers probably have taken on extra help for the holiday rush. So you may not have to wait too long. But I dunno. When you order, you might want to mention you're a ripe, jolly old elf and 'tis the season to be good to Santa Ploos. And sing a few rounds of Here Comes Santa Ploos.

Ah, the matador lights up a smoke. There's no small amount of irony in that, Ploos, m'lad, because the translation of "matador" is "killer". So no smoking, no bull.

Looking good. How's the stylus pen's aspirations coming?

hi. Capt'n Mac. No pens. Just Mouse hows the fire's up your way. Keeping you

D Akey
12-13-2017, 08:51 PM
Yeah, the fires have been bad, but fortunately for me it's calmed some around my immediate area. This is good because aging parents heard all the news from all the on-ship scuttlebutt, but when they returned the air quality had gotten back to pretty good. Thanks for asking. Still there are lots of folks who didn't make out so well especially up the coast. Those winds were pretty darn nasty gusting up to 55 mph. But the winds seem to have died down mostly and hoping it will stay calm. They said on the radio that the temps have risen unseasonably like 10-15 degrees because of there being so many fires. And some of the fires are still going elsewhere from my area.

So yeah. As in your pic of the fumador matador, it's a smoking killer.

Be well!

Like John Lennon said, "Life is what happens when you're making other plans. . ."

and I think most artists can agree that at times Art is what happens when the world makes other plans for us. All your experiences are going into the mix in one way or the other.

It's good to know you have various people knocking on the door.

Sounds like you might as well chuck the clock into the hands of one of your visitors as a door prize for all the good it does you as a device to regulate your activities. I'm in the same boat. Just do like I do and use Stonehendge - the Druid's Chronometer. It's close enough for the kind of work we do and you never have to wind it.

Speaking of the TV show "The Crown" and King George, I was just watching it and in the first episode as he was being dressed, they had him say a limerick, which I should think he did to help him not stammer. I thus, for historical purposes, and so that your tongue remains supple, I shall recount for you for historical interest and for you to recite as a practice for your elocution.
Now if you would, please repeat:

There was a young lady named Sally,
who loved the occasional dally.
She sat on the lap,
of a well-endowed chap,
and said, "Gee Dick, you're right up my alley."

I love this monarch! I have even thought to recite it at the Christmas table, just to see if anyone's listening.

Now that I have your attention, get thee back to the painting. Your production numbers are flagging, mate.

Bear in mind, to quote ol' Manny Shakespeare, "The paint's the thing." And be sure to ask Santa for a replacement stylus.

Wishing you the best, MacPloos!

A new tablet! Excellent. Great idea.

One suggestion a-fore ye buy one:
Especially if you're looking at an off-brand cheap-o,
ask them in the General Chat Forum Section if that one

So you need to name the make and model, and let them know you're using Windows 10 (or whichever operating system you're using).

Anyway, sounds grand. Go man go!

That sucks. I don't know why either. Sounds like the vendor oversold and ran out of stock, especially if it's a hot item during sales. I've run into that on e-bay for books especially. Or maybe there was something wrong about the whole business.

I would perhaps try a different source. If it's a reputable item, you'll likely be able to find it or something more dependable.

Well done MacPloos! So you finally got your tablet. That must be very satisfying.

But you have me confused. You own a Cintiq 21 but you don't have a stylus for it? And all you need is a stylus to make it work? Or is the Cintiq not working at all?

So you bought a tablet. That's a good thing so you can get back into the swing of the functions of the stylus once you get more accustomed to not touching the screen with it.

I think she looks very nice. It reminds me a little of the style of Edvard Munch. Cool! Go man GO!!!!

Hi. Capt'n Mac sorry if I've confused you the Wacom is a Cintiq 21ux interactive pen display Model DTK-2100 k and 3 pens. 1Grip. 1Art. 1Airbrush ok.

I dare say you gave the Cintiq a hefty workout as any professional who had a quota to meet. It served you well and if you can't fix it, I think you should put it out to pasture for stud services. . .that is if it's a male.

You may want to look under the screen to check. It all should be visible since it's no been fixed. Oh aye. Spaying and neutering was no an option, MacPloos.

D Akey
02-11-2018, 10:23 AM
Doesn't look a whole lot different from the one you did with the mouse. Did it handle differently with the stylus? Could part of the issue be the settings you have within ArtRage for the tools as you use them and not so much either the mouse or the stylus pen?

Could you not adjust more as you go? Perhaps that would make more of a difference in sharpness? Sorry it's so frustrating. Give it time to get warmed up to painting again. You may be a bit rusty is all.

As to the Canadians, I looked up the horrible assault. So you remember those things as part of your life, not just from internet articles. The irony from going from a peaceful sport to real war in a matter of a week or so. Wow. The world changes in dramatic ways doesn't it. Contrasts and harmony just like painting.

D Akey
02-12-2018, 06:35 PM
The shaky hands is normal if you're hovering your hand over the Cintiq. As you rightly suggest, it'll settle in once you get to resting the hand a bit on the screen and raise it bit for the longer strokes. I can't do fine work without steadying my hand unless I'm doing big sweeping gestural stuff which is alright for the early stage blocking in. But my style is tighter with detail like yours.

Looks good MacPloos! As Magritte says, "Ceci n’est pas une pipe" or in English: "Is that chap smoking his stylus?" It's the digital smoke recommended by five out of six matadors.

So now you have your stylus and your outfit with the wrapped legs and all. So grab your red cape and set to do an arena battle with the bull.

Yeah, as to having a ton of files, that's the challenge with the information age -- file management. But do not be intimidated.

I can't speak to all your troubles, but the last bit re: your password to log in to your iPad:

Unless your house is filled with unsavory types, there's probably not any danger in writing your password down where you can look at it quickly.

Have you considered writing it on a piece of painter's tape or masking tape you have stuck to your device so it's handy at a glance?

If you're worried, then don't. But it's a thought, depending on whether it works at your security level to do that.

Good luck with the other bit. I can't help cause I've never used it.

02-21-2018, 10:39 AM
Hi Captain Mac yes U should told me about sticking tape on the top of the Screen as would have saved me searching on bits of paper plus can never
find a ink pen when wanted my passwords where on Norton who fed them
in as wanted but since upgrade to W10 Norton has gone! now not where?? ok
as U can see I have clicked A for black and 6 for size and Comic s ok But it
never shows???? Yes having watched Chads finger paintings I had a go ok
but there are done on my IPad And I Didn't no how to get them on my computer
I think Robbie said Google Photos but no joy then like a idiot I tried REIMAGE
so lost my Wacom cintiq 21ux screen and as U know the pens had packed up
so got the little 6" Wacom which worked ok on the large Screen till REIMAGE which refuses to uninstall :mad::confused: does anybody know to uninstall it:mad:

02-21-2018, 01:09 PM
Oh Eighty, you are having an awful time. Do you know anyone who can come in and solve some of these issues for you?

Is Reimage an app on your Ipad?

Google Photos PC and Ipad downloads .... https://photos.google.com/apps

02-21-2018, 05:43 PM
So sorry to hear all your troubles Mr. Ploos. I wish I could have stopped you from using Reimage - they are scoundrels! Years ago before a change of ownership, they were a great site to go to repair computer problems and I would use them a couple of times a year to keep my computer running smoothly. But the last time I used them after the changeover, my computer was completely ruined and I wasted money. They tried to talk me into spending more to correct the problems caused by them but I cut my losses and closed them down.

There are many reports about this company on the internet - here's one - http://www.pcsoftwaresbay.com/registry-cleaner-reports/36-reimage.html

You can remove them by using this app https://geekuninstaller.com/ it's safe and free - I have used it for years.

I found a couple of videos showing how to reset your Ipad without password - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDOY6bwhqU8


Hope some of this helps.

if anybody can contact Hannah ask her for a new password

for me for my IPad ok thanks a Bundle:D

D Akey
02-23-2018, 09:09 AM
I relayed Hannah your request.

NOW, Keep an eye on your notifications for private messages in the upper right of your screen when you're logged in to the Forums (like now). You may have to scroll to the top of the page to see it. But it will be lit up next to your forum name and say you have a new message once she's replied. You can take it up with her from there.

Good luck shipmate! Keep us posted. And stick a piece of tape to the side of your screen and write your password on it with some permanent pen.

02-23-2018, 10:46 AM
if anybody can contact Hannah ask her for a new password

for me for my IPad ok thanks a Bundle:D

If this is just the password to log into your iPad (not the ArtRage site, or using the ArtRage app), then you should contact Apple support, unfortunately my magic support powers only extend so far.

I can give you some suggestions to get started though.

First, which password is it? There is pinpad code you enter to unlock the screen for security. There is also the password for your Apple ID account, which you use to buy apps, and change some personal settings.


If it is the password for installing apps and reinstalling your iPad data, go to https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid and enter your AppleID email.

You will then be able to choose a new password, just like you do for the member area.

Passcode for log in screen

Is the password you can't remember the number pad one to access to your iPad? If this the the one you need, it will be harder to fix. You may need to contact Apple support so they can walk you through the steps.

The first thing to try is just to start iTunes on the computer and connect your iPad to it. You can then let it sync and restore everything.
If that does not work you may need to reset the entire iPad.

Go to this page for step by step instructions https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204306

I can only tell you to do what is on that page, so if it does not work, use the 'contact Apple support' option at the end.

02-23-2018, 06:57 PM
Hi Hannah my IPad is with (artrage) ok I know its a apple IPad but that is
as far as it goes ok you did send a new password when you 1st come to

Hi Mr.Ploos, me again! I'm not giving up on you.:p

Maybe the Apple shop will help you reset your iPad back to factory settings and you can start again as tho it was new.

Also, it looks like you need to remove Reimage. Here are some pictures to help with that.

94704....94705...94706...94707...Scroll down until you see Reimage.

Sorry if I confused you by my black images - except for your start menu - yours will be on a white background - I changed the colour theme on my computer.

to tell them ok so they will hold my order till I get my new card :D:mad::mad::confused:

02-26-2018, 01:35 AM
That's good news Mr. Ploos that Reimage can't fleece you for any more. Bad news tho that you won't be able to eat until you get a new card. When mine got stolen in Croatia in November, it took a couple of weeks to get another. :(

Maybe I should send you a food parcel! Cornflakes and bananas right, or is it porridge this time of the year?;)

02-26-2018, 06:07 PM
I would check your email. Hannah told me she had replied to you in email from when you first inquired about your password a few weeks ago.

This one you see in response here was because I contacted her in case she hadn't seen your request. She had. But decided to respond publicly here in the forums for all EXCEPT the password. She can't post your password publicly for obvious reasons. Check your email.

Anyway, so happy that June hoisted your butt out of techno-hell. You guys work well together. Plus she made you breakfast. That's serious progress, matey!

Yeah, hope you have enough food to tide you over till you get your new card.

Bravo laddie!!!! You did quite well as that nefarious passel o' crooks squeezed you without conscience nor care for any but their own worthless asses.

02-27-2018, 12:25 AM
Hi Cap Mac thanks yes the
only email I have received from Hannah she stated to go to apple to sort and they
say said no its down to your artrage site for a password so as you can see I'm
so :confused:ok plus at the moment I can't send or Receive Email due to
REIMAGE ok so ask Hannah to send the password by Traditional post airmail ok
plus yes I've tried to uninstall REIMAGE with no luck yet will keep trying ok

D Akey
02-27-2018, 05:25 AM
No need for all that traditional mail jazz. You have a private message here on this here website, by jingo.

Once you're on as you are, where you can post in your thread, you also have access to your private messages. Are you aware of that feature? Who knows how many people have tried to contact your venerable self that way.


I *think* this will take you to your private message spot. When you get there, look around and you should see your messages to you there. I think she may have sent your password there as well. It's your own personal message that the public cannot see. Just you and the administrators like Hannah Rage.

If it's not, I'll ask she send it there again.

Regular snail mail will no work, laddie as they're the landlubbin kind and cannot swim the seven seas ta Brighton. I think it's the salt in the water what singes their eyelashes and they cannay abide it.

Mr. Ploos - another weapon I have in my arsenal to protect my computer is Malwarebytes
https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/ This is a free trial which reverts to the basic free version after 14 days. There is no need to upgrade to the paid version after this time. I still use the free version.


I'm hoping that this will remove Reimage for you if my other suggestions have seemed too complicated.

Just download and follow the instructions. When it has completed it's scan and found something, click on the blue 'quarantine' box and that's it.

Whatever the source you're paying from (Bank checking or savings account, Credit Card or PayPal etc), contact them directly and put a stop on all money activity around those poxy thievin' bastards. Make sure your financial institution blocks them NOW. . . if you haven't already. You can then work the rest without pressure of a highwayman's gun to yer lovely pate.

Coming along nicely with the family photo, matey.

As to your shootout with the outlaw Josey Wales, I think it was his Welsh accent what caused the misunderstanding.

You said "Hoot mon" and he thought you said "Shoot man" or as we say in the Wild West and in dime store novelettes, "Alright you mangy low down snake in the grass, DRAW!"

Glad to see you dodged the bullet. Wish I could say the same for ol' Welsh Josey.

NO WAY! The Cintiq be hardware, MacPloos, an' there's the truth of it, oh aye. The software driver may be screwed up in which case that just needs sorting, which shouldn't be impossible.

Lady Cintiq just appears to have passed on to Boot Hill because her eyes are rolled up in her head in exasperation with all this flip-flopery. . . and besides she thought it was about new foot apparel, confused as she was, so she dashed off to get some new boots. You can see the problem.

Take special note: the 21" Cintiq should not be used as a 21" TV tray for yer breakfast cornflakery. The milk you spill would no do for your electronic muse, lad. Not a'tall a'tall.

Remember this and put it on your bathroom mirror as a morning mantra:

"Thy Cintiq, She Be Notefully Lactose Intolerant, Shipmate."

Also make that one a sampler and hang it over your fireplace. It can ne'er be said too much. Software. That's likely the one and only problem.
