Is It Just Me Or ........

Is it just me or is Blogger running as slow as Vermont maple
syrup today?   I've had problems signing in timing out or
navigate thru pages all day.  Running Firefox 3.6.24 which
has workedfine before today, so I logged out and logged back
in with Google Chrome and it works fine and faster to be honest.

Letterpress Tutorial

Here's a quick and simple tutorial on how to apply the popular
letterpress effect.

Sorry for not posting sooner, but it seems the up and down yo-yo
weather we're experiencing here in southern Indiana has given me
one hell of a cold, my head feels like it's full of cotton balls and I
feel like I have a elephant sitting on my chest, not to mention the
never ending coughing and phlegm has resulted in a sore throat.

November 2011 Desktop Calendar

November 2011 desktop calendar zip contains nine different sizes
for your monitors. Photo was taken and posted last weekend on my
Flickr page, I call it "After The Fall."

Seems this leaf was hiding under some other dying kin, playing
possum possibly, or most likely shelter from the elements,
prolonging the inevitable. I must say the leaf macro was heavily
edited in Lightroom.

600 X 600 Pixel Photo Shadowbox Kit

                        [Click images for larger views]

600 X 600 Pixel Photo Shadowbox Kit is a PSD file which can be
used transparently, and was created for web posting, such as a
template for images on your blog.

The kit comes with four optional blurred shadows to help make your
images stand out and noticed. For those who have a white blog post
background I included a one pixel black outline, which can be reduced
in shade by lowering the opacity in Photoshop, otherwise the back -
ground will be the color of your post background.

I hope this kit can be of use and finds a lot of new homes and users.

All Apologies

First off, please except my apologies, it seems when I logged on this morning I was rudely awakened by 33 e-mail failures, all of which I did not send.  I've never, ever experienced anything like this before.  Not sure where to start, I'm assuming I have a bug, which I'm loaded with virus security, so I'm not sure how it got in.  Thought I would post this for all to read, again I apologize for any inconvenience.

I shall run a scan with Norton and check with Yahoo mail ........ what fun today brings!

*** UPDATE ***

First of all, I'd like to thank those who have responded with help, deeply appreciated.
Secondly, I can't express my apologies enough, I'm truly sorry for any inconvenience.

I've changed my password with ATT/ my e-mail provider, hopefully this does the trick.

I'm not sure what and how I was infected, but my computer seems okay, and the only
thing I did out of the ordinary yesterday, was I went to the Vimeo video site and watched
some Photoshop CS5 tutorials, not sure if that's the culprit or not, but to be safe, I will not
return anytime soon.

I'm understandingly getting so many e-mail responses my head hurts, and if you by any chance get
further strange e-mails supposedly from me, please let me know, thanks.

Again, please do not follow any links within the supposedly e-mails sent from me, just to be safe!

Again, I'm so sorry.

How adobe store sucked the life right out of me

Is it just me?

I finally decided to upgrade from Adobe Photoshop CS3 to CS5, seems the price was right
but the experience from placing my order to the actual download was a nightmare from hell.

First off, when placing my order, which I've ordered from the Adobe store before, and so
my prior information was already in place, and all was correct from a prior order, but it
seems my info was incorrect, it kept sending me back to the billing page, numerous times.

So after numerous attempts and countless expletive outburst I decided to get assistance
via chat, ain't this a hoot!

First suggestion, try doing it all again, "priceless information" but as a good little
soldier, I decided to follow along, three times no luck, but right before the forth attempt
and my head was about to explode finally decided to work,F@#k me!

Now, off we go to PayPal for to purchase, all seems okay now, click to log in, and I'm sent
back to Adobe billing page, about now I could bite the head off a chicken.

Ring, ring, assistance once more, again I have to explain my ordeal, hoping for a quick and
easy solution, crossing my fingers and almost on the verge of praying before I see the words
typed from assistance, please try again.

After more expletives and contemplating reasons to purchase a fire arm I decided to play along,again.

Eureka, finally my Paypal purchase went through and was sent back to Adobe store for download.
I'm thinking, finally, what possibly could go wrong now?
Quickly I found out, it seems Adobe has a certain downloader called Akamai.
It doesn't work, sets there rotating in my browser, actually blinking. Now I try the alternative
download, and after a slow start it downloads the instructions on what to do before downloading.
I save to desktop, click on the downloaded PDF Install Instructions to read, here's where I feel
the rage that the zombies felt in the movie "28 Days Later," I read " Adobe Creative Suite 5.5
Navod k instalaci pri elektronickem nakupu ..............WTF!

I need a relaxer, so I go for a cup of coffee, third cup actually.
Now I decide to investigate, so I scan down the 30 page PDF, yes, there on page seven I come across
"Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Electronic Purchase Installation Instructions" I'm sure a smile came across
my face before the question rushing forward in my head, what in hell is 5.5?

Finally I decide I have to manually download the zipped files, heh, no problem!
Wrong, it seems Adobe downloads are slower than snail mail, something of this size I've downloaded many
times and a lot, lot quicker, it takes 48 minutes to finally download. The cups of coffee has turned into
a cold beer, early yes, but it's a must have calming agent at the moment.

Finally I unzip, install, update and back up on disc, what a slow and painful adventure it's been.

I now haave Photoshop 7 ~ CS3 Cs5.5 and Elements 10 installed, oink oink oink!

Curious as to how many Photoshop versions you have installed?
