- Daniel X

I was so excited about a new windows operating system coming out that I jumped on the bandwagon and tried the RTC release,partitioned my hard drive to avoid any mishaps so I could pleasantly go back to W7.It installed beautifully and ran great except for ONE major flaw,it would not connect to the internet....After a good 30 hours of trying everything short of writing a program myself,I admitted defeat and tried to go back to W7,no dice!My system crashed leaving me to go through the delightful task of reinstalling W7,which might I add would never reinstall so I stepped down to Vista for a few months bought a new system with Windows 7 installed and swore off Windows 8 for life.Well fast forward 6 months to the new release of Windows 8 Pro,being a kind and forgiving soul I thought for sure Microsoft would by no means release a operating system without first making sure it was golden,boy was I wrong.I must admit I did learn my lesson and decided after the drama with my last system install I would put it on my Netbook,well I did and it ran flawlessly until,yes you guessed it,I tried to connect to the internet and just like before no dice no connection!I have now wasted 40 hours of my life trying to get something that is suppose to make my life easier which has been nothing but a connection nightmare!I have found more than a few flaws with the operating system one of the greatest being it will not accept any unsigned drivers,which if your aware of drivers most are unsigned so therefore it will not install and then more issues ensue,seriously microsoft,WTF?Even my OCD and my inability to take no for an answer can not change the facts that the world is not ready for Windows 8,shame on you Microsoft for not making sure your system is ready to interact with all devices before selling your operating system to the world what a major flaw in what appears to be a flawless operating system.Is this what we have come to these days,selling unfinished incomplete software just to make a buck?I gave you two chances and even paid for the second and you still whipped it out and took a wiz on me!This is a warning to the consumer,if it is not broken don't fix it,I suggest to you all at least wait until the SP 1 comes out to save yourself a lot of nightmares and connectivity issues ,Windows 8 is not ready for public consumption by any means,learn from my mistakes and save yourself some heartache!

Greetings and hello!It is been quite some time since my last post,all apologies.A lot has happened since my last entry,the most influential being a trip to New York to film my music video in July of 2012 (The King of Dubstep) where I was shocked to be publicly identified and acknowledged for my work throughout my stay in the city.This has really threw me into a state of hiding since,and has changed the why I work.I am now being much more guarded with what I am sharing of my personal image publicly as a means to preserve my privacy. I am now embodying my 3d images I create,these 3D images will now be the public representation of Daniel X. I really had no idea that people were listening so to be addressed by strangers on the street and throughout Manhattan who felt as if they knew me was an extremely threatening experience.I have always classified myself as an introverted extrovert but I have now learned that privacy is very important to me and it is something I will continue to guard.I have a whole new respect for fame and everything that goes with it,the saying "Be careful what you ask for,you just might get it." has never resonated so loudly in my life.
