|If you think I have fallen off the face of the earth, you are wrong. After three days I am popping up again, from a mountain of work I did not anticipate to descend on poor me. I have been spending 3 entire days from morning to late in the evening in front of my antique mod.2005 Laptop. From time to time I used my enriched vocabulary… well I’ll spare you for that here.
If you look below you will see what I have done. If no more nasty changes are coming up it’s ready for the printer. I’m talking about our new enhanced brochure for the sightseeing tours of Campobello.
I could have let the printing facility in Calais,ME have done the job. But then you know I would have been zooming back and forth between Calais and here some eighteen times and wouldn’t that been quite time consuming as well? And on top of that I would have had to pay those guys and girls for their work as well. And if they had been really overly busy I would have had to wait to get the job done until summer was well underway. And that is kinda too late for us!
The first day I worked on my little project, was a total bummer. At least it ended as such. I had the whole thing ready on my screen and had “saved” my work again and again. When all-of-a-sudden everything disappeared off my screen. I attempted to haul the stuff up again from the deep, deep down basement of my laptop, but alas….such thing proved futile as nothing was ever saved. :-((
So I had to start all over again. Another bummer working graphics with this outdated model of a computer is the very limited RAM capacity. RAM is basically the ability to store all data of what you have been working on in one session. Time after time I bordered the capacity of this machine while I was producing an item in the range of 200some Megabytes. Shifting that stuff around on the machine was a task that consumed everything from 30 minutes to up to a full hour of waiting for me. Funny enough that when I started to occupy my mind with alternate stuff, like starting to read a book, I could be sure that the thing was just about getting ready for the next step. I don’t have any count of how many coffee cups went down, but I can assure you it was a lot.
Anyway, I’m getting darn tired.
Have pleasant dreams and you’ll see me around!
