    Simone replied to someone in the comments that they are from Vagabond. I'm thinking it could be these: https://www.vagabond.com/se/CINTIA-4528-380-20 If you are looking for really comfortable canvas shoes, I can recommend Skechers. I wear them at work and they save my feet. https://skechers.se

    Through where did you purchase the ticket? Edit: Oh sorry, I see I'm too late. I hope it worked out. By the way, is anyone else going to Inferno Festival in April?

    MaYaN

    She is a really good singer with an amazing voice. She really impressed me when I saw Ayreon in Tilburg. I'm glad she's in a band since it didn't work out that way with Anneke.

    What are you playing now?

    Thank you so much for your advice! Well, that doesn't sound so good. I have to say I don't know all that much about these things. I wasn't looking to get a desktop computer because I don't like to be bound to sit in one spot. But then it seems like an awful waste of money to buy something that won't last very long! I want it to last for more than just a couple of years! I'm willing to spend money on good quality but only if it will last for a long time. Rather that, than something cheap that will die in two years time. That's a horrible waste of resources also. And I certainly don't feel like spending that much money on another laptop any time soon. (I got my old one 6 years ago, and it's still alive, although very slow, it can only handle one thing at a time , but it just can't keep up with how I want to use it, and I can't pretend it can handle Premiere at any acceptable level.) Do you think it would still be too hot/degrade even if I didn't play games on it often? I don't have the time for long sessions, so it would be a couple of hours in a row at the most. I would mostly use it for work. I've also been looking at Dell XPS 15 for example (but read that this model has heat problems too), and HP models. I want a fast reliable computer that can handle multitasking, also with heavier programs, and a good screen for editing images. So I guess that means that the cpu can't be too low. But is it generally the graphics card that generates heat? Is the one in the Razer laptop unnecessarily high? What I mean is, do you think I could find a "healthier" laptop that doesn't run so hot, where I could still game occasionally with decent quality? Or is it a lost cause really? What sort of a graphics card do you think I need? I'm sorry to throw all these questions at you. I have been looking at laptops for weeks but I somehow feel none the wiser. Edit: You don't need to answer all of this, I'm going to spend some more time to really research all options before I decide on anything.

    What are you playing now?

    This might not be the correct thread for this question exactly, but I'm thinking you who write here often might be able to give me some advice. I'm looking to buy a new laptop, my old one is giving up on me. I'm looking for a good one since I need to use content editing programs like Photoshop, Premiere etc. So I know sort of what specs I need for that. But as I've been researching, I've come to understand that there's an overlap with lighter gaming laptops. Some of them look pretty much like normal laptops. I wouldn't call myself a gamer really. I have a PS3, and two games , FF 9 and 13. I've only really played Final Fantasy. It's been years since I played anything now. But I think I would really like to start again! So I've also started looking at those models as well. Initially just for fun. But I mean, I already know I'm going to spend a lot of money , so why not, right... I've been looking at the Razer Blade 15" equipped like this: Cpu: Intel I7-8750H, Gpu: NVIDIA GTX 1070 Max-Q 8GB, Ram: 16 gb (exp up to 32), Storage: 512 SSD Screen: 1920 x 1080, IPS, 144 hz, 100% RGB, 300 cd/m2 I will not be playing any kind of shooter games. But I love games like Final Fantasy, beautiful scenery, great storylines and characters, battles. What do you think? Will I be able to play games on that? It will surely be strong enough for working. Any advice?

    The Old Era

    My story is also very similar to yours, Symphoniker. Although I think they became my favourites immediately. I have the same experience with CC, and to an extent DPP.

    Ayreon

    I read a random comment on instagram suggesting Simone might be a part of it, but I'm not 100% sure it wasn't about The Source, and I haven't been able to find where I read it. So take with a huge grain of salt.
