For those that missed it the first time around all you Director users should head over and take a short survey about features you would like to see in Director 11 (and of course versions above and beyond that). This is the final week to get in your answers, so don’t miss out!
In the past few weeks I’ve been slowly working on getting my gorgeous 24 inch iMac getting all set up in the evening. The first thing I did was get the latest MySql and PHP running (will post this info later this week), along with WordPress. Total time was about 20 minutes. Time watching the big iMac screen…priceless. The screen on this thing really is amazing.
With my nice new big screen I have started playing with Adobe Lightroom (I’m one of those pro-am photographers…although mostly on the ‘am’ side). I’d briefly played with it on my 14inch iBook and it wasn’t a very rewarding experience, but with a lot of screen real estate on this fast iMac it is fantastic. I think I’ll be buying it as soon as it has made it out of beta. I’m not yet sure how it will integrate with CS3 (when that comes out next year). One thing missing from it right now is an easy way to get photos up to Flickr. From the looks of it they will be counting on 3rd party developers to provide a lot of these add-ons.
