Okay, mucking about with Canvas has me accustomed to things at the beta stage, so maybe I shouldn’t be surprised but this is nice. So I made a little video (2:13… a little long for my liking…)   and then … arghabilly, no, it can’t do anything because it’s missing a certain *.dll file and […]

🙂   A few minutes here and there mucking about with Canvas… for the LAST WEEK of the class. 11 hour drive …I like the Nissan Versa NOte.   Small, and the features I want without the weird ones.   Well, okay, I’d have liked an “Auto” for the headlights (and stick shift). Good space […]
