I can't help with Google's new scheme, but to save you a few keystrokes in your image searching, it's spelled "naked" not "nekkid." :D

I much prefer ArtRage 2...Though it doesn't have the "everything's still smooth when you zoom in" thing, the way it simulates natural media is, I think, superb. ArtRage is nice, but you can get a full OEM set of Painter X for $35 on ebay, and the integration with Photoshop is nicer. (Of c...

So, all you need to do now is code up ScrivCell, and ScrivPoint, and maybe ScrivXChange and a database. You didn't really want to write that book anyway, right? :D

I installed the drivers so I can use the volume and eject keys with the MacBook but some people refuse to use a keyboard that requires installed drivers. Is there any reason for this? Of course there's a reason. Some people are silly. :) Actually, since every keyboard requires installed drivers, it...

Re: Amazon Prime

£49 for free delivery on most books, DVDs and games? I must spend three times that a year on Amazon deliveries... Are they just getting Prime up in the UK? They started over here about a year ago. As a long-time customer, they gave me a free six month Prime membership, and while it was nice, I did...

I agree with that. The switch to CS marked a pretty radical change in Adobe's software design. Photoshop's latest interface feels excessively over-thought and clumsy. I much prefer version 7 or even 6. I forget where, but last week I read a bit featuring Adobe's lead developer for PS. He stated his...

But I don't buy Adobe products. I was shocked to read your mail, that Photoshop and Illustrator won't be upgraded for Leopard. Unbelievable, and what a way to treat customers! Of course, it's only CS2 versions of Photoshop and Illustrator that won't be upgraded. CS3 installs of both programs work v...

MS Office 2008 Offer for Friday 11/23

I don't like using MS Word, but find I need to keep a copy about to work with odd files from others. I currently have Mac Office X, but this offer will almost surely be less expensive than updating that copy in January. For Friday, 11/23, MS is offering a $100 rebate on any version of Mac Office OS ...

For a film reference, A Hard Day's Night makes reference to a clean old man on a fairly regular basis. And the music's not too bad, either. :D

Hmm...doing a definition search, "Forging" comes across as "to make falsely."
