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?

I"d jump for joy at this...except I still refuse to RENT my software.

I still am not ready to buy into the Adobe CC thing, I don't like the idea that if I have a lot of PSD files, I've done work on, I may refer back to, say as templates for my business albums, etc...that if I quit paying rent, that I can no longer open and use my files I created.

I bought into the CS6 Production Premium Suite of tools...and so far, I've not see anything Adobe has done or added that is so groundbreakingly compelling that I would give up my standalone as long as I want them (in VM's if need be for OS changes) and use them.

I'm actually wondering if Adobe keeping the 'deals' running for so long is and indication that not quite as many have flocked to CC as they imagined. But regardless of that, I don't wanna rent my software, who's to tell when once they have you hooked, they start raising the prices? Also, what's to keep the fire lit under them to innovate once everyone is paying monthly and there is no stand alone option any more?

This was in a Mexican court. Have you tried reading the article before letting your bigotry come out?

What bigotry?

It was making humor of a situation, where we have a large and growing number of illegal immigrants coming into the US and causing a drag on our economy.

How can a fact be bigotry? Sure, it happens to be mostly from a single country, but facts are facts and have nothing to do with bigotry.

Frankly, I welcome LEGAL immigrants with open arms, no matter where they're from, as long as they want to become US citizens, and follow the rules.

I agree the rules need to be updated to be more streamlined, etc....but still, you follow the current rules till the new ones can be made into law.

Fuck illegal immigrants! It's not like they're real people with very understandable motives for their "lawbreaking."

Well, then who is to decide what laws to break? I sure could use that new Porsche you bought, but I can't afford it, but it would understandably help me in so many ways..so, therefore I should disregard the law and take it.

Yeah, I do kind of say "fuck illegal immigrants"...but I also am quite WELCOMING of legal immigrants.

Here's a great idea: Die in a fire.

You have a problem with people following the laws and rules of the country (US in this example)?

I mean, seriously, they are there for a reason and should be followed until changed legislatively...I was just trying to put it into a slightly more humorous light.

Hey, here's a great idea!!

Let's also structure the lawsuit settlement, to where if you are in the US illegally from Mexico, that you have to go home and file your claim.

And then, if you want to come back, you follow the laws and rules and apply for citizenship. And, you'll have your new working phone to call those left in the US and talk with them and keep in touch.

Perfect solution!!

I saw this quote "

The internet started out as and has always been anarchy, and that is what made it good. It has been the last bastion of personal freedom and expression since inception. The lack of regulation and rules has made it what it is today.

The internet, was NOT created and constructed for the purpose of business and monetary transactions, that is something that came later and while welcome, was not and SHOULD not be the total focus of the network of networks.

Not to mention...Lenovo fucking up the quality of the product after they get ahold of it.

The old IBM THinkbooks used to be built like a tank, but a Lenovo one today, is so much plastic, I had loose USB ports, etc.

I'm guessing the servers will get the same "cheapening" over process.

A former poster is right...might as well look to get a Dell, and at least not worry about Chinese spyware in addition to the cheaper construction quality.
