Borrow someone else's mouse and do line art?  Buy a really cheap one?

Farewell for a bit everyone.  I'm moving to London, ON for my new job at Big Blue Bubble and won't have internet for a little while.  Looking forward to seeing some amazing stuff when I get back.

once you have mac, you never go back!

umm i dont really like pixen, try and acquire photoshop from somewhere - its great for doing other things besides pixel-art.

i would say get adium for your msn/aim program, works very well plus you can customise the design layout so it looks nice.  You might also need WMP for mac for some video files, plus quicktime pro.  Handbrake is a great program for ripping full-length movie to very high quality MP4, i just rent, burn, then take them back :p

Once you use mac for a while you really see the benfits over windows.

What mac have you got?

from bash.org:

<Mat> what's a mac sysadmin?
<Bru> someone who can remove shrinkwrap from macromedia and adobe packages and knows the difference between appleshare and appletalk

Personally i dislike macs. All their hardware is jumbled up inside (granted, you never touch it.) Plus, their ad campaign was enough to drive me away from EVER wanting to switch. Their users get so stuck up. My art teacher is a mac elitist, and it drives me nuts, he's so proud of himself just because he doesn't have a right mouse button and has a ridiculous GUI.

Mac has two things going for it: looks, and the fact that no one will waste their time making viruses for it.

I have an idea - let's argue over whether macs or PCs are better!  OR, optionally, we could argue the merits of various religions or philosophies.  OR bla bla bla bla bla bla bla

Not that I mind the off-topic-ness of the posts, it's just that after a while you start to get a grasp for what subjects are Arguments That Never End Because They Are Subjective Topics :P
