Forums

Forums for discussing art, photography and other topics of general interest

It seems that discussion forums are 'old hat' these days and forums-based websites are considered, by many, to be a relic from the age or the dinasours!! No matter... artfreaks.com was originally - (in the first decade of the 21st century, by the way!) a forums-based website - with a gallery tagged-on for good measure. Now, with the Articles, Blogs and Downloads areas of the site, artfreaks.com is so much more than that - but the Forums are staying. Some people still like them... If you don't, then please do feel quite free to ignore them completely!

    • I've just started reading a book called "Men Explain Things to Me" by Rebecca Solnit. The dedication reads: (my emphasis)   Well... Having a mother, a sister, two nieces and three wonderful daughters, I would say that you can count me in there! This is a very interesting book. Deadly serious in places but laced throughout with Rebecca's ferocious humor!! (I'll try to find a better word than "ferocious" to describe her sense of humor - but that will have to do for now...) One thought that struck me as soon as I started to get into the book is that men explain things to me too. I think it must me a "man thing"? So don't worry, Rebecca. It's not just women that men try to explain things to. They do it to each other. All the flippin time!!    I have lost count, for instance, of all the men who have been explaining to me recently about the new coronavirus. As if I'd never even heard of it?!! Okay, okay... So I have been locked-down on a ship for the best part of five months now. But we do have internet on here. And I can actually read the news.
    • Here's someone talking some sense, for once in this crisis: You don't need to take my word for it. This is from a former Supreme Court Judge in the UK: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-8281007/Former-Supreme-Court-judge-LORD-SUMPTION-gives-withering-critique-Governments-lockdown.html
    • Well-worth a read: https://www.icfj.org/news/swedens-top-epidemiologist-challenges-conventional-wisdom-covid-19   And well-worth watching: https://unherd.com/thepost/coming-up-epidemiologist-prof-johan-giesecke-shares-lessons-from-sweden/?=thepostindexfrmemail
    • Here we go... WFP Chief warns of hunger pandemic as COVID-19 spreads And:   I would just rephrase that bit about: "...the economic impact of COVID-19..." to something more along the lines of:   "...the collective insanity of the majority of governments around the world, causing a total economic melt-down in the world economy... Burying their heads in the sand until it was far too late - and then going completely over the top in a unison of utter blind panic."   Or something like that.    
    • I've just re-read everything that I have posted in this topic - just to make sure that I hadn't written anything totally stupid in the early days of the covid-19 pandemic. Well, having re-read that lot, I can honestly say that I didn't feel any need to edit a single word. My position hasn't changed. Your best defense against any virus, (new or otherwise,) that causes an acute disease - is your own immune system. So look after your immune system. If you must panic, then do it slowly. I'm all for social distancing - mainly because I am a miserable old so-and-so anyway!  Stress is a major enemy, when it comes to your immune system. So do try to get people back to work before we end up destroying whole industries and millions of jobs - which can only possibly result in a complete economic catastrophic. (If we get away with two or three years of a severe world-wide economic depression, now, I will consider that we have been very lucky...) So try not to turn a crisis into a complete disaster? Here's some interesting reading on what they know - (and don't know, yet) - about SARS-Cov-2 so far, with particular reference to anti-bodies and the immune system: (Needless to say, it tallies with my own personal point of view - otherwise I wouldn't have posted the link here!!) https://www.statnews.com/2020/04/20/everything-we-know-about-coronavirus-immunity-and-antibodies-and-plenty-we-still-dont/

      Hey all hope you are well,

      I know my updates and uploads here are slow and few in-between! I hope you are all doing well during this time of chaos, I myself have been knuckling down on both art and miniatures and have had my other time stolen by immersive games. My pc recently developed a fault that, if I leave it on too long or try and use anything that's not super low on requiments, it goes to blue screen and one of the hard drives which is the one with my OS is failing... I've just got an old family laptop so will be using that but setting everything up takes time. However fear not, I hope to be back in force soon with new stuff and updates to all my old messy content.

      Take care.

      Hey SMB, I just uploaded a new painting and added tags, but after it uploaded, it didn't show up with the rest I put up the other day, I, as usual, am confused by this, Can you please explain what I did wrong?  I could not find a save button after uploading...I ever tried refreshing, but no luck so far...
      I think I'm doing upload to different places too, but don't know what to do about that to end the redundancy.
