“Grrr, there goes my heart’s abhorrence
Water your damned flowerpots, do!”

(from Robert Browning’s Soliloquy of the Spanish Cloister)… yesterday was full of that. This a.m. so far a little better. *Nothing* worked — but riding in I figured one problem out (if you’ve got a duplicate layer on top of what you’re trying to work on, you can’t see what you’re working on. Yes. It was that kind of day, mostly spent trying to squelch useless wishing that I knew somebody who knew what they were doing to ask…)

Yes, answers happen quickly on the bicycle. I have a feeling that sticking a stationary one next to the computer wouldn’t work, though… but I’ll give it a try at home.

Navigating timelines w/ actionscript … Todd Perkins at does an okay job, but there are Unexplained Things, such as what’s nested inside of what. Perhaps that’s a sneaky way of hoping I’ll “upgrade” to getting the exercise files.

At any rate, time to stop procrastinating and get to the hour I’ve allotted to blundering through animation improvements and then getting back to actionscript.
