Same with two other users that I snuffed out just recently. 'Tis a good thing our defenses (text CAPTCHA+Antispam ACP) are an acceptable compromise compared to what happened to the Gameloft forums. Troll

Here's hoping the birthday weekend doesn't get rained and stormed over. We're celebrating Benita's birthday on Saturday, since it falls on a Monday this year and Sunday is her namesake's birthday. We'll be giving Benita some more celebration on Monday afternoon, too. I also hope there are not a lot of traffic jams and no closed streets on this particular Sunday, 9/11's tenth anniversary. There probably will be.

I don't mean to sound insensitive. I am so sorry if I come across that way. Yes, death is terrible. Still, it is a fact that more people were born on 9/11 throughout the years than there are people who died on it one year... and the living do not deserve to have deathdays of birthdays. Ben's daughter's birthday was also the day of a tragedy. Unlike her father's birthday, 3/11's tragedy in Japan happened in the exact year she was born, and that could make the situation worse for her than for him. I pray not. Japan is a long way off. On the other hand, so many more people died on 3/11/11 than on 9/11/01. On the other other hand, 3/11 was a natural disaster, not one caused by humanity.

Why can't my brother and niece just have normal birthdays?



This theory here, though far-fetched, sounds good for something I mostly made up on the spot! All that I didn't connect on the spot, I dreamed years ago. That still counts as my brain connecting the pieces.

Photoshop CS5 Extended works well on Ubuntu 11.04. Just replace the offending amtlib.dll (not to be confused with atmlib.dll) with the ones that can be found on TPB.

I still prefer Photoshop 5 to Photoshop CS5.

Mainly because I was repulsed by the post-PS5 interface change and large number of feature removal that happened after PS5. (Yeah, the same reason I hate Gnome 3 and Vista/7, although I was forced to adopt the latter because companies are starting to write programs that will not run in XP well if at all. Firefox for example- 2D acceleration only works for Vista/7. PowerDVD will not play blu-ray movies at 1920x1080 if you do not use Windows 7, and don't get me started about those new games that won't run under XP!).

I'm getting used to the Gimp tho, and it has mainly superseded PS5 as my editing app of choice. Even though it doesn't come with some of the features that I use heavily in PS5 like outline glows and stuff, I'm learning to work around the limitations and am getting used to it. My current sig was created in Gimp and I've done some sprays using that as well.

Well, I can't do stuff without PS. Sure, the Gimp is there, but I'm not that used to how things work in that app.

I only ever used newer versions of Photoshop, mainly CS4 and CS5, and I only used them during a digital graphic design class. Outside of that, I use Gimp. I'm not much of a Gimp expert, but I do know about how layers work, and how to extract characters from screencaps an insert them into my own creations, such as the custom startup, shutdown, and desktop images for Pinch, my little MP4 player.

As for Gnome 3, I want to try it out. I have tried Unity and didn't like it, and Gnome 3 is supposed to be very similar to that. I still want to test it out though since the first time I tried to do so, it wouldn't boot me into the regular Gnome 3 shell and reverted me to the "classic" desktop, which is more akin to Gnome 2.

EDIT: Alright, tried out Gnome 3 on Jasper, and....I think I like it. I'll probably get a better experience using it on faster hardware though. I'm planning on getting Chrysanthemum repaired soon, and she will be a Linux laptop, running a distro that uses the Gnome 3 shell. Oh, the two reasons I didn't like Unity are that it has no application sorting, and that it doesn't seem to fit well on desktop computers. Gnome 3 has application sorting, and once Chrysanthemum is repaired and her tablet pen replaced, I will have a computer that makes Gnome 3 worth using.
I love foxes, especially the one in my avatar.

Just finished reinstalling OpenSUSE Factory on Dongwa. Looks like the inability to log into KDE was because I created a fatally potent mixture of OpenSuSE 11.4 and OpenSuSE Factory packages, and one of the update somehow destabilized my concoction and broke KDE.

Heading off to bed now. Clementine is also broken, but her's cannot be fixed unless Debian puts out updated packages.
