Getting a bit cold this week in the Scottish hills as we move into Autumn, so an icy antlered Doe arrived for this weeks #Colour_Collective. Could imagine her giving a deer hunter a bit of a shock. The colour this week is Glaucous.

A wee thingy about the image quality this last month here, at the Fears. Since arriving in Scotland I’ve been on a 4G connection through my mobile in the mountains. It was generally worse than 90s dial-up. We kludged around it, but until this last few days, I haven’t been able to upload anything bigger than 200kb from home. That’s meant going so far as removing the paper texture from my drawings to reduce file size. Yeuch. Sorry if it’s given a whiff of the ugly.

I got a contractless router to take the heat off my phone. The updated version of this thing from 4Gee. Our landline in the new home was so bad we actually got a 4G aerial fitted to the house free, then a price reduction on our 4Gee monthly plan. We’re still paying about £60 a month for the net, but we’ve gone from less than 28k download speeds and zero upload speeds to about 60mb download and 15mb upload. That’s better than my old fibre optic line in London! Cripes.

So I’ll carry on with Inktober as I have been for a bit of consistency, hopefully, upload a few videos, then crack on with the great schemes for the Fears in November.

Ooo, and November! For the men, don’t forget about Movember. For the writers, don’t forget about NaNoWriMo. Anyone participating in either?

With special thanks
