Had a fantastic time in Ireland – a beautiful country in the sunshine. I won’t say more – expect Lou to provide in depth coverage at some point in (I’ll guess at) the next week, and me to shamelessly provide a single entry with links to all of her hard work.
Back to work with a vengence – offsite Tues/Weds/Thurs, print projects, you name it. PANIC!
Off to Ireland this weekend – starting in Dublin, then to county Offaly, to Kinnity Castle for a wedding. Then…well, it all gets a bit vague.
I really fancy visiting a few distilleries – Midleton has potential, but sadly I don’t think we’ll make it to Bushmills, more’s the pity – Bushmills malt is lovely stuff.
Lou really wants to do some activities – paragliding, rock-climbing, hot-air-ballooning. Stuff like that. I’m not sure why…
Perhaps we can do both – if we go to the distillery first, I can bring a bottle…
After a recent upgrade to Windows XP at work, I ran in to a problem opening photoshop, where I would get the very helpful error message:
Could not initialize Photoshop because the file is locked. User ‘Properties’ command in the Windows explorer to unlock the file
It turned out that I didn’t have access permissions on the root folder of my second hard drive. Naturally, I’d set Photoshop to use the d:\ drive as its primary scratch disk to increase speed. Thankfully, I was able to change the permissions…whether they’ll be reset by group policy is another thing, however.
It’s a bit daft that Photoshop doesn’t let you specify a folder for the scratch files – that would get around this problem straight away, and that of Limited Users on XP, who aren’t allowed to create files in the root directory either.
Listening to the album Bari by Ojos de Brujo – well worth a listen. It’s sort of new flamenco crossed with latin rap. Very cool, and working better than The Hacker was earlier, although Reves Mechaniques is a very good album.
