No cloud for me

Hey hey you you offa my cloud… Boy, was I happy for 15 hours or so (though most of those were spent sleeping).   You see, adobe’s “creative cloud” license would let me download to two computers. So, AE is now on my netbook for the next 30 days.  However, it’s not downloadable on a 32 […]

I scooted out into the main lane on my bike, because the bus coming up behind me was going to turn right there and I was going straight — and the fellow waiting at the bus stop mutters “You’re supposed to be in the bike path.” Once I processed that yes, he had said that, […]
