For Windows.

My friends and I occasionally have this problem so I’ve taught them this simple method that takes less than a minute as opposed to waiting several for your computer to restart(especially if it’s slow).

What’s great about this method is that sometimes restarting your computer wont fix the problem, but this usually will.

MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE ALL YOUR ART APPS.

This is important, otherwise the changes wont take effect. If it doesn’t work the first time, try again, sometimes it takes restarting it more than once.

For Windows 8, search for “services.msc” in your apps and click on the result. Continue from there!

Now go draw, babies!

Reblogging in case anyone else finds this useful. I’ve had this problem before (more or less… it seems to be less now, but there was a period of time where it happened often. Might have changed with windows updating things.)

I always restarted my computer to fix it, but this is a lot less trouble!

IVE ONLY JUST REALISED THE HORRIFIC GRAMMATICAL ERROR I AM SORRY I HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR 8HRS OK I CHANGED IT GOMEN

The exam season is almost upon us (well us UK lot anyway I’m not sure about like global exam seasons) so I have decided to compose a little masterpost of helpful tips, playlists, revision links and stuff (are u impressed with my paint skills, shown above)(ps: when i say applies to UK i mean like some of the links and subjects might be like UK specific idk omg) anyway lets go!

PLAYLISTS -

INSTRUMENTAL:

VOCAL:

ADDITIONAL:

So now you’ve fitted yourself with the perfect playlist you can get down to [attempting] revision. Is that all important tea at hand? I mean pen, sorry.

REVISION WEBSITES:

What do you mean, putting pen to paper?

BEST WAYS TO REVISE:

  • The first thing I’ve personally found that helps with revision is specifications! No matter what subject you take it will have a specification (an outline of the entire course, what you need to know for the exam), it can be found on the subjects exam board website (AQA, Edexcel, OCR, e.c.t.). Simply find your qualification and subject and tad-ah!
  • Another great way to revise is past papers! Again, these can be found on exam board websites. I know what you’re thinking ‘ew exam prep’ but trust me, getting used to the structure of the paper is a massive plus. You’ll gradually notice the general trend of questions asked which will help you prepare and if you decide to actually do the paper in timed conditions it will help you get used to answering them!
  • Start revising ASAP, even if its just getting to know your way around the course specification if will be a massive help and it will mean less cramming!
  • Make notes in colour, it has been proven that those who make notes in colour (or highlighting) are more likely to remember them!
  • Find out if you’re a visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learner, by doing this you’ll be able to figure out the best revision techniques for you! (Take a free test here, it’s just multi-answer questions dont worry)
  • Record yourself speaking your revision notes, if you do this and listen back to them over and over you’ll be helping yourself remember without realising (this is especially good for auditory learners)
  • Read back the notes you just made and then try again without looking! If you get something wrong, do it again!
  • Create mindmaps, this is a really good technique no matter what type of learner you are as its easy to picture them in your mind when trying to recall (especially if you do it in colours!)
  • Flashcards!
  • Create presentations, this is a really great way to revise sub genres of a course! (this website is especially good for making presentations)(it is free as well)
  • Revise in 20-30minute bursts then have a 5-10minute break!! It has been proven (again) that after a prolonged period of time your brains ability to concentrate decreases, so try to have regular breaks, even if its just a pee-and-tea break!
  • A-Level revision tips
  • Revision tips

Now all that revision is done and dusted (for now), phew! Good job! Can you see that A-grade on the horizon yet? Time for a break anyway so, how about some of these?

Ok I am totally out of ideas of what to do on breaks and such but remember - don’t push yourself too hard, have fun and do your best!

Good luck, you’ll do great!

Do yourself a favor. Learn to code. Here's how.

boomeyer:

I’ve said this to my non-techie friends countless times. It’s no secret that being able to code makes you a better job applicant, and a better entrepreneur. Hell, one techie taught a homeless man to code and now that man is making his first mobile application.

Learning to code…
