Adobe can fuck off

I was a user of Lightroom before it was Lightroom. The software was called Pixmantec, and when Adobe acquired it to form a basis for Lightroom, I received version 1 of Lightroom for free. But in the ten plus years since then I have paid, for every new version and then for a subscription once Adobe moved the product to a rental basis. Last month they changed the product again…

The annual freak show

The usual Halloween visit to Walking Street; and every year the delights on offer seem to diminish. The enticement brigade outside each bar seem to have lost interest in dressing up, probably because this would increase the potential for cameras being pointed in their direction, something which they and their handlers seem increasingly keen to avoid.

The magnificent seven

  • October 21, 2017

In a previous post covering my trivial motor sports endeavours, I referred fondly to my first car, a Lotus 7. As mentioned, my puberty was not spent furtively seeking boobs (that was to come later), but spending pocket money on any magazine that included a Lotus 7 related article, which I then cut out and stuck in my scrap book of devotion. Evenings would be spent re-reading the articles and…
