…get a Mac.  If only for the recently released Pixelmator.  Software I actually deigned to pay for.

Software of the Week

October 19, 2007


A truly sumptuous piece of software has just been released by these people: http://www.pixelmator.com/

It is defined as ‘Photoshop for the rest of us’ (i.e. non-graphic designers who can’t afford to shell out over a thousand pound for the real thing.)

Software of the Week…

Rapido suite comprising RapidoMap (self explanatory), RapidoSerial (an application designed to alert the user when apps are out of date), RapidoStart (dealt with this last week) and RapidoWrite, a program resembling Textexpander – once freeware, now shareware. Each of these programs is freeware and can be found here.

Rapidostart: an excellent way to manage all those pesky applications that aren’t quite important enough to occupy space in your dock.

‘I always know I’m in a council property because:

a) They have a kind of fuggy, overpowering warmth that you only get if you’re not paying the heating bill; and
b) there’s always a massive plasma TV in the corner of the room with SKY+ always on’

Of course, it’s a well known fact that all council tenants are clones of one another and so are their houses, unlike the sophisticated middle Englanders PC Copperfield seems to identify with and respect. A full review of PC Copperfield’s (PC? Haven’t you made it to sergeant yet?) little effort will grace these pages soon.

Verdict so far: Theodore Dalrymple without the extensive vocabulary.

Software of the Week: Artrage.

Breaking News: BellaCat is unwell. The vet will make a home visiit tomorrow. I dread losing her – she is 17. Old for a cat but too young for me. And still no news about my father only that he is in a hospital bed hooked up to tubes having lost a quarter of his body weight. He is 62. Still young in the eyes of many. Something or someone has unleashed the fury of a tropical storm.

I feel compelled to add that this cast is not listed in order of importance but rather in order of appearance.
