Although, I must say, I enjoy all that tailgating and community get together MUCH with college football games here in the south, than I do for Pro games.

Better looking and younger chicks at the college game day celebrations!! That and you don't have to go through something resembling TSA airport security like you do with the NFL these days more and more.

Help me out here - those of you who live where /good/ teams are, don't you normally avoid blackouts because your team is worth watching? Wouldn't it be the stinkers that have to be propped up by rules like this?

I live in New Orleans...and it has only been in recent years (not this year apparently) that the Saints were anything but a losing team.

For decades...fans filled the stands, wearing bags over their heads, but still..they were loyal and came to see the games. I know some games were blacked out in the past, but I don't remember *that* many.

Granted, we have a dome and don't have to sit outside in the sweltering heat and humidity (which lasts usually till about the end of Oct), but even so...I think it depends on the community you live in as much as how the team is doing. I mean down here, we're looking for any excuse to get together for a party, hell we even have parades for funerals.

you should try pixelmator.

I just found Pixelmator, looks interesting. Know any good sites with comparisons between PS and PM? I might do the trial and see how it works...the thing that made me a bit apprehensive, is that on the PM site, they are showing off in tutorials all the "click and it is done for you" stuff predominately.

I had to actually DIG through the site to find out about curves, and layer masks, often the meat of a serious workflow...not one touch instagram filters.

With the Adobe move to CC, I was really hoping someone out there with funds would take this opportunity to take GIMP, and either work with the current team or fork it, and really turn it into a full blown PS competitor.

A very solid product would see a huge uptake. If they could get the keyboard shortcuts pretty close to 1:1 with PS, that alone would have a lot of pros looking seriously at GIMP, since that is a huge part of the workflow if you're trying to move fast.

So many keyboard shortcuts are memorized and moved into muscle memory with heavy users of PS, that that aspect alone would be a major boon to GIMP adoption by those that are not that happy with the CC *rental* model.

Remember, CS is professional software. They don't make much off us one of hobbyist / low grade professional shops.

It seems they could offer both standalone along with subscription based and catch more of the crowd...

I mean for now, they still offer Lightroom as standalone or part of CC, why not PS, Premier, AI, etc?

Everyone should just go and learn C and how to do POSIX programming, attain enough mastery in it to be able to diagnose code for obscure security issues (that have eluded many programmers for years) and then design a secure fix.

And they should do that in a day.

Ya that sounds reasonable.

FYI not only are most people not programmers, and have no interest in becoming programmers, but most lack the kind of brain it takes to be a good programmer. The whole "Oh it is OSS fix it yourself!" argument is a really stupid one.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.

Working...
