Down The Drain…

Flash (that’s Macromedia Flash, for the not-quite-so-computer-literate) saw fit to corrupt one of my files today. Naturally it was one I had spent the whole day working on. Not only did the program crash 7 or 8 times during the course of the day, but it also refused, time and again. to play the movies I had made. The only good that came of all this crashing is that I backed up my files fairly frequently. It seems the last good backup I’ve got is from about 1 PM this afternoon. So, it turns out I could have spent the afternoon going on a nice walk or learning to crochet or something since all the work I did is down the drain…

You know, I am using the 30 day evaluation version of the software and I have to say, it’s not looking good for them if they expect me to shell out $650 of my hard-earned dollars to buy their rather pathetic product (actually, all you get if you purchase it is an activation code – I already have the full-featured product…it’s just going to expire in 21 days).

Sigh.

    Like an iPhone, Only Much More So

    Can I confess something to you? There’s one thing Aileen does that really bugs me. We will be talking together and enjoying one another’s company. But then, as we chat, I’ll hear the telltale buzz of her phone. And I can tell that I’ve lost her. I can see it in the look on her…
