While I recognize that the technological world we live in is great, sometimes it sucks too.
I upgraded to Adobe Photoshop CS6 today. Have been watching CS6 videos for a couple of weeks. The videos created a real excitement to me because of the improvements over CS5. Real exciting “stuff”! Then I downloaded it. First problem was my GPU card. I have a Mac Pro loaded to the hilt with RAM, drive memory, etc. Just have an “incompatible” GPU for CS6! After three hours with Apple it started to work. Then my somewhat new Nikon D4 files would not come up. Had to download the new Camera Raw BETA version. Then had to download the most current CS6 update. Finally!! Well kinda. All the plug-ins need updating and downloading!!! This is where the bad words start flying!!!!!!!
Gave up at that point and loaded a few shots from FBWR of some White Face Ibis. When viewing these incredibly beautiful birds through the viewfinder I am shocked at the colors. And what looks like metallic feathers. They truly are one of a kind beauties!
1fbI am writing to let you be aware of what a beneiicfal encounter my friend’s child encountered using your webblog.

Now I’m like, well duh! Truly thankful for your help.
Now wait a minute! You want witner to be gone AND keep on taking these gorgeous pictures? Isn’t there a having cake & eating it saying that I should be inserting here?Is that a cardinal in the center of the picture?
I have no doubt this would be an insane aounmt of information to try and assemble solo. We aint solo tho and I bet we all have particular talents/interests that could help us build a library of sorts.When I started thinking about it I wanted a hyperlink list for all the basics but quickly discovered the bulk of it is assembled into books, not online. Not all of it though as I’ve found a ton on canning, raising livestock, etc online in pdf form. County farm extensions are amazing sources of free information. I imagine there are a lot more in that vein, don’t you think?Imagine a supercategory list along the lines of Food, Power, Water, Farming, Waste, Engines, and Communications. Each Supercategory could be broken down by specialty then those delineated by type of resource, books or free information, personal knowledge, etc.The most difficult to assemble might be information on utility grids, landline phone maintanance, and public water supply. Most however, I bet we could find and continually refine if we wanted to.I agree, its a large undertaking. Its too much to ask of Brad or RD but as this blog has morphed into what it has, maybe we could do it ourselves. One last thing. I really don’t expect the world to end tomorrow,lol. I just think as we get closer to the almost certain showdown with Iran, I get nervous. As i watch the Norks and Chinese develop weapons more suited to EMP blasts than nuclear annihilation, I grow uneasy. And as I watch what will likely be another critical intervention as the Bond and debt issuance go out of control and our currency fades well, you get the idea. Ok, I’ll put away my tinfoil hat now
We need a lot more insights like this!
A provocative insight! Just what we need!
Thanks for helping me to see things in a different light.
Thinking like that is really impressive
