It's getting hot out. Going for a walk in the sun becomes a slightly less pleasant proposition when it can induce headaches.
I've been feeling generally sexier lately, which is good. ( Read more... )
I will definitely be going to Anthrocon this July, and hanging out around Boston with postvixen
for a week or so afterwards. Bliss! Especial bonus bliss if I can scare up a Mac laptop to load my working environment onto so I can kinda keep up with freelance web-game work while there. Anthrocon is only half the excuse for the visit; the other is that the lavavixen's birthday and mine straddle the 4th of July - she's the 3rd, I'm the 5th.
So yes. Bliss!
Yesterday I fooled around with changing the icons on my system to something prettier
but it didn't work out. Back to the system default ones. Little graphic icons don't work against my graphic art as a backdrop. I do this now and then and it never works, against my art, but I don't want heavy-outline icon sets, or whatever. I did, however, finally get around to changing the ugly icons for Illustrator and Photoshop CS to the ones from AI10 and PS7. The old ones can be distinguished from each other; the ones for CS are really hard to tell apart because they're all more interested in carrying the CS brand than the individual program. I've gone to the dock and launched Photoshop when I want Illustrator, or vice-versa, too many times since switching to CS.
I found out there was an update to the image gallery package I use on my website
. I suspect I ought to upgrade, as I know there've been some security holes patched between 1.4.4 and now. I also suspect it'll be a pain, as I did a lot of hacking on mine. It's sure to be a couple days of twiddling to learn its new skin system and build a skin for my layout, and some of the other things I've tweaked...
Also, some silly scribbles from recent days.( Read more... )
