Everything is up and running as it should. One thing won't update, Windows Explorer 11. Oddly enough, when I tried to update it via downloading the update file, doing a clean boot with updating services enabled, I got message that the update didn't apply to my system. Fine, I hid...

aka data migration, 2nd attempt. After sending diagnostic reports to Zinstall and my trading emails, they called me (gawd I wish they would pay attention to the time difference. I clearly stated UTC +8 Perth) but they told me that disabling Malwarebytes isn't good enough, that it has to be... Continue reading

Ok, for some odd reason, CS6 won't kicks back all Camera Raw files as not the right kind of document. And OnOne PhotoSuite 9 keeps erroring out with a strange code (have forwared it to OnOne) CS6 64bit Bridge isn't reading Camera Raw files, but CS6 32bit does. So, for... Continue reading

Sort of. It seems to have migrated the data over, but I have already had a few hiccups. Adobe Photoshop CS6 is grouching that I am past my trial period, and giving me "Can not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document" when it comes... Continue reading

Although it seems it's taking so long to migrate the image file to the external SSD I have hooked up, I know that it would have taken a helluva lot longer to have had to deactivate, reinstall, reboot over and over. Weeks before I had everything up and running the... Continue reading

Why? Because some stupid idiot at Adobe thought that updating the update checker should overwrite/take over for the CS6 Adobe Application Manager with their overbloated Creative Cloud update checker and then not have the %#$%$$^#%%# thing NOT work when you click on Update. So right now, by way of CS5/Updates... Continue reading

Although I have been 'lapping' the back yard, I had no way of keeping track of what I was doing, or progress, so installed a pedometer app on my phone. I also have audio books installed so I don't get bored and stop too soon. The only problem is this:... Continue reading

I finally pinned down why I feel someone's judgment was so unprofessional and so wrong. Here is a clear explanation: I don't like asparagus. I mean I loathe the stuff. I think it's the nastiest vegetable/plant in the world. It is on my 'hit list' of what should go into... Continue reading

I was contacted by a CatMax representative. She said she was going to refund my credit card $400. Funny thing is I was overcharged $450.07. Hello ********; when you called today to get my credit card details, you said I was being refunded $400. According to P*** C*****, I was... Continue reading

CatMax keeps trying to get me to accept goods in place of giving me a refund for being overcharged. We don't need or have the room for other items. We have cat towers (3), mini towers (2), scratch posts (2), hammocks (2) What I don't have is the $400+ I... Continue reading

I got a response regarding the repair cost: Hi Sandra yes you are correct on this being over charged. the problem is is should have just been a call out fee plus materials. but was done as a quote of pictures and spread sheet. so here is what you should... Continue reading

CatMax got back to me, sort of, trying to make excuses for their exorbitant charges (remember, I thought the damanged mesh wall was being replaced, and a few holes patched) > Please see a break down of the total price of the job that you requested > totaling $ 711.29.... Continue reading

Some rats attracted to our neighbors chicken coop invaded our cat enclosure. They chewed through it and it needed to be repaired. I called Catmax, sent them photos, and was given a quote of $711.29 to repair the damage. Seeing as it cost us $2100 for the original installation, I... Continue reading

After leaving rank messages assuming by the title of my weblog that I was nuts, and when I informed them about what it meant, about how it was in literary quote, THEN told them to fuck off, nary a peep of apology or even a "Whoops, my bad." half-assed apology.... Continue reading

And I am of two minds as to what to do. A few weeks ago, a photo judge allowed his personal bias to derisively dismiss and insult me and my work in a rather rude, arrogant manner (calling the photographer, me, lazy and the photo not a 'challenge’) His actions,... Continue reading

But I just has someone come up to my door, and tell me if Wing doesn't stop complaining/talking about what happened last week, the person he has complained about will sue. That said person has gotten a lawyer and is drafting a cease and desist. Smart move to not email... Continue reading

I was quite willing to just go away, to not be heard from again. And to chalk it up to it was just something else I was no good at (as I have been told all throughout growing up, and into my adulthood). But I do have to clear something... Continue reading

And not overly surprised at that. My son was taken to the hospital early yesterday morning, before 6am, in extreme abdominal pain. No, not gall stones, not appendicitis, so any keyboard diagnosticians take a break. Spent almost the entire day with Alan in the ER and then hospital ward. After... Continue reading

I just updated CS6 Extended and Bridge that goes with it. Now, for the past 3 years, Adobe CS6 Bridge has been glacially slow loading thumbnails, and even if you worked in one folder, when you closed Bridge, and reopened it later it would treat it as a new import,... Continue reading

I sent an email to SD Recovery Pro about how dismally their product performed on recovering accidentally deleted image files. I told them I had done all the trouble shooting (tried in camera, in built in card reader, using external card reader, using different computer, all with the same dismal... Continue reading

Because I wasn't paying attention while Wing was getting ready for work, I chose the wrong delete option when clearing off a CF card. I chose DELETE ALL instead of DELETE SELECTED. And of course I couldn't stop the deletion while in progress. I immediately started SD Card Recovery Pro...... Continue reading

I usually have nothing but praise for you, but not this time. I got an sponsored ad on my Kindle E-Reader. I was very interested, logged onto Amazon, look at the item, the options making note that it said "This item ships to Kardinya, Australia". So, ok, I tried to... Continue reading

My bike basket is not your rubbish bin. I saw you toss you sandwich wrapper into it, not thinking that this pudgy old woman was the rider of the bike when you looked my way. I saw you put your things in your car, and head back into the shops.... Continue reading

Wearing my 'desk' glasses. Crisp, clear text, and no more feeling as if someone is trying to gouge my eye out with a spoon, or instant nausea. Should make editing photos a lot less uncomfortable. :) Tried on my 'not desk glasses' and again, no feeling of eye strain. Continue reading
