Because all the cool kids are doing it and I'm never one to back down from peer pressure. *Sunglasses*
Now, to attempt to figure out what to do with the damned thing, only to give up and let it collect dust for the rest of eternity. Oh, and to hunt down the Tumblrs of friends and whatnot.
As a side note, does anyone else have issues with their tablet drivers spontaneously not working after a week of installing them? Running Win7 (64 bit) and using a Wacom Intuos4. I update my drivers pretty regularly, but after an indeterminate amount of use, windows will stop detecting that the driver is there. Or... something. It's strange, sometimes the tablet will keep working as normal, but other times it'll start to behave... iffy. Like the screen will freeze for a second each time I tap it with the stylus (which is the worst thing ever).
I've tried to find a solution to the issue, but my google-fu is poor and needs training; each time I attempt to find some sort of fix (or an answer), all I seem to locate are convoluted solutions that don't work for very long.
