Just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any worse, now we’re all doomed to enter the era of slideware. Hold on to your Photoshop palettes, kids. That breeze you’re feeling on the back of your neck is the self-replicating democratization of a million indecipherable business graphics careening willy-nilly through slide sorters around the globe. … Read the rest of this item

Apple: The message isn’t even medium. Given the obese history of inaccurate platitudes and persistent hallucinations propagated by a blood-thirsty media, I have never understood why Apple doesn’t just pull up to the intersection, slam on the breaks, and toot its own damn horn once in a while. Apple has always had lots to brag … Read the rest of this item

Nuts. After just over a month without a reboot, this server of mine decided to take leave of its stability. With the monitoring software I have running, it tries desparately to restart on its own, but after a couple of tries at forcing certain apps to launch against their will, the whole box needs a … Read the rest of this item

Both Photoshop 6.0 and ImageReady 3.0 apparently support WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring & Versioning) workgroup integration, but do you think I can find even a shred of documentation for it anywhere on the Adobe site? Other than brief mentions in feature comparison lists, Adobe is placing WebDAV functionality squarely in the “on a need to … Read the rest of this item

I know, it may sound like crazy talk, but I actually updated the Spiral Logo Critique tonight. No, really… I’m not kidding. A half dozen brand-spanking new, corporate offerings for all to peruse. Presented with finesse and care to appease the voracious design gods. Lightly-toasted to enhance the flavor. Spread the word. Share with your … Read the rest of this item

Introducing another sure way of losing several more hours of your life sitting in front of the computer. AdFlip is like AdCritic for the dead tree set. Take it from Miss Fluffy Rice, she knows about classic advertising. Via dansays

I can’t nail the reason to the door quite yet, but XMacL could prove to be a very valuable resource in the near future. Especially with pointers to nuggets like Xpublish and FileMaker XML Central.
