Hi Rich. Glad you are back!
Linda Nicholls (formerly Rathgeber. I married my Playing with Fire coauthor, David. :-)
Welcome back, Rich! It's been a long time!
Welcome back Rich!
That's neat Linda... am I right in thinking you've moved half way round the world too?
CS5 arrived today, and wasn't the longwinded thing that it was on my computer at work (long story and different version of CS5).
Now to dig my teeth in.
Yes. I'm living in Canberra, Australia. :-)
A bit of an old post this is, but it's the most recent one I could find searching for "Linda Rathgeber". That's when I found you and some other forum oldies here and about the LG name change.
Rich, I remember you rocked Fireworks with your styles, especially the Rust style was very good. Boy, it must've been 8 years or so.
Apart from emailing with 'Summers about once a year or so, I don't really talk to anyone from around here anymore. Today I thought about this forum and decided to check if my account here is still active. I wonder when the last time was I signed in.
I still use Fireworks MX 2004, It does well what I need it for. I've created a whole bunch of commands that simplify and automate things I do often, but I've no use for all the new stuff, so I never bothered upgrading. Besides, I've been using more and more open source as of late. Even Dreamweaver was replaced a few weeks ago, one of the apps that I really couldn't (and didn't want to) let go of.
Anyway, good to see all you guys are still posting. I wonder who else is still around.
Hi Coen. I'm still here. :-)
Hi Linda. Good to see you're still around and hope all is well with you.
Hi Coen. What are you doing these days? I'm pretty much retired.
I've missed this message, hence the lateness in replying.
I'm doing much of the same stuff as back in '04. Still doing web and 3D design. Been involved in a number of projects.
Work's been difficult to find lately. I think everyone's struggling right now. I'm very curious how things will be one year from now. As you know, 2012 has a lot conspiracies floating around on the Net. If not world destruction, then economic failure or some other doom and gloom.
What about yourself?
I'm happy to be living in Australia, which has pretty much avoided being drawn into the international financial crisis. Business is booming here. Don't listen to predictions of gloom and doom. It's all FUD (fear, uncertanty, & doubt: a method of obscuring the real issues.) Be well!
