I’m working on my Christmas list which is never easy for me. I want all this electronic stuff, but my tastes are a little expensive.
I tried to help a friend set up a small home Windows network over the last two days. He had purchased three new computers(including a 450Mhz Xeon based machine), and just wanted peer to peer sharing and printing. After two nights of trouble, we gave up for the time being. Very frustrating. It should be easy enough for a non-technical person with the right manuals to do. It’s not.
Transit , my new favorite FTP tool for the Mac, has been updated to 1.1.1.
I’ve found at last two bugs in BBEdit 5.0 (and reported them) that are inconvenient to the way I work. I will revert to 4.5 until they are fixed.
Alien Skin Software released their new set of Photoshop plug-ins Xenofex . I played with the beta version of this. I thought that the visual effects it created were stunning. Is it useful? I’m not sure.
