I thought we were doing Aping Argyris' Avatar April. frown.gif

 

(Kidding about being sad, of course).

 

I might not be on here quite as often, now that school has started up again and I've got a read on what my classes are going to entail. Basically I won't be having any free time until term finishes at the end of April. Wall to wall reading and a rather obnoxious term paper due near the end that I hope to the heavens above I'll find a topic for, since at this point I ain't gotta clue. I suppose that's what taking two graduate-level courses at once will get you.

 

Kind of annoying. I went and bought that Lepai amp for my near field setup, and by the time I get done with everything each day it's going to be well after everybody else has gone to bed so I can't use it.

Avatar-wise, Doc'll be here to hold down the fort.  He doesn't like to brag, but he's every bit as good as me (IMO), so it's all good.

 

I'll try to pop in when I can.  But with the show (CES), meetings, more meetings, and working remotely out of a hotel, etc., I might not be around too often.

 

Take care guys!  And don't forget to...

My post count below is all you need. biggrin.giftongue.gif

 

 

 

I'll be sure to post something witty lame when I make it to 2,496 posts as well. And, if I live long enough to make 24,192 posts, I'll film myself doing something entertaining, if I remember (I'll be old, after all). And, when the archaeologists who excavate my house and find my skeleton laying in front of my computer 42,000 years from now make the 32,192nd post, somebody will make a movie about them in which they're perpetually running from giant balls of stone that come rolling out of nowhere to crush them, all while wearing noise cancelling headphones to drown out the incessant rumbling sound the rocks make so they can get some sleep at night.

Since it won't run (officially) on anything beyond XP, maybe they're taking a calculated risk that people will install CS2 now, upgrade to Windows 8 at some point, find out CS2 no longer works, then upgrade to the current product from Adobe.

 

Whatever. I'm home now, so the download begins.

From my understanding, those are for the Adobe customers and owners of a CS2 license, not for anyone else. Downloading it would probably be seen as legal, but installing and using it would not.

Apparently, now it is free and legal to everyone, although it wasn't meant to be at first. The story is here....

No doubt you heard earlier this week that Adobe is giving away Creative Suite 2, an older version of its popular (and pricey) image-editing and design bundle.

Then it turned out that, no, the software wasn't free; Adobe's Don Isaacs wrote that the company was merely "terminating the activation servers for CS2," and that the download page was only for those who already owned licenses for the product.

Ah, but it was too late: the story had gone viral (big time), and it appears Adobe has decided not to try stuffing the genie back into the bottle. As of now, you can download the whole of CS2 (for Windows or Mac) or individual components (like, say, Photoshop) free of charge, and unlock them using the serial numbers provided right on Adobe's download page.

There's nothing there to indicate you need an Adobe account, an existing software license, or anything else. There are no warnings about who's allowed to use the software or for what purposes. It sure looks like a freebie to me. Indeed, I downloaded and installed Photoshop, using Adobe's provided serial number, and no police have arrived at my door.

Good for Adobe. The company may not have intended to give away this old, discontinued product, but think of the goodwill they'll earn by doing so. (The company could use some, asusers of Photoshop Elements are incensed about Adobe's discontinued support of Photoshop.com.) Think how many users who would never try, say, Illustrator or Premiere Pro that now have the chance to do so. And if they try it and like it, they're at least a little more likely to pay for the latest version, CS6.

Yeah, it sure looks that way. I'm still a little skeptical about it all though.. I did download it, but haven't installed it yet. I'll play with wine later on to see whether or not it works as well as it says on winehq.

You say something about keeping post count up while being in school? rolleyes.gif

I think I've averaged about four or five posts per day, if that, since I posted about that. It's definitely taken a chunk out of my "nothing-to-do-let's-post-on-Head-Fi" time. I'm currently taking a break to do that optional human activity called "eating", and then it's back to the textbook to finish up the final twenty pages or so of reading for the night.

 

I've got it all worked out (sort of). Thursday evening is article- and psycholinguistic study-reading night, Friday is my day off, and Saturday and Sunday are textbook days. Weekday evenings are set aside for doing any homework that's due for the class the next day, and after all that's done on any given day it's YouTube, Head-Fi, and music. Somewhere in there I'll also find the time to do write-ups for any review samples companies are kind enough to send me.

 

So basically what I'm saying is I'll be here in the evening (where I am, at least), and not throughout the day.
