    Switch from mac to pc

    buy stuff that says silent on it Mine makes like zero noise. Wasn't totally intentional, but pretty surprised. main culprits for noise are cheap power supplies and cpu fans. so get bigger power supply than you will need. Then fans won't spin up for longer. most gpu brands have silent versions. Fans only spin up under high stress. also get a cpu cooler which has a large heat sink and google which are the most silent fans. I think noctua make the best from what i recollect. There are also cases with sound proof padding that should help too. standard plug: http://ace5studios.com/hardware <-quick run down of what each peace of the computer does. A bit our of date, but only thing that has changed is AMD cpu's seem to be pretty good value. But personally waiting for next gen.

    Creative Plateauing

    Yeah, its pretty easy to get pigeon holed. Especially when you are good at something. Because it becomes an easy way to make money. Since you already have the necessary skills. It's why its important to pick personal projects and really push yourself in new directions. And be your own art director. Make revisions, act a shitty client Sometimes you need feedback from others. This used to be a great forum for that. Maybe with the reviving of it, it can be again. Also a good idea to branch out and learn about something unrelated. I love watching crash course videos on youtube. anatomy, biology, chemistry, history. They have plenty of useful stuff to get your brain churning. In the last couple of years i seem to have drifted towards a more technical role, rigging, etc and now i want to go back a bit towards design and aesthetic development. So im trying to get personal projects finished with a strong focus on design. Shapes, form, composition etc.

    Surface Studio

    honestly, i have very limited use for it, but i just REALLY want one
  21. of course, but you know, its not like plumbing or dental hygienist.. here to get reliable/predictable you also have to stand out, and keep standing out and keep learning and evolving and competing with every new wave that comes in.
  22. i think if you're asking this question, then you should probably go into a field with a more reliable/predictable source of income. Because in the end you will be competeing with people who simply want to do this so much that they don't care about how easy it is to make money or how much competition there is. It's really the same in most fields, but in this specific one there are lots of really passionate people who really love what they do, and simply can't/won't do anything else. [edit]: sounds a bit harsh.. sorry...
  23. see this question asked over and over again, decided to write a short article about it. i seem to be writing the same thing over and over again. http://ace5studios.com/hardware
