Yep… yep.

USB plugs have a visible USB logo on the top side. If you plug them into a horizontal USB outlet with that facing upward…it will always be the right way.

If it’s a vertical USB outlet…then you should call the manufacturer and tell them TO GET THEIR F*&$ING ACT TOGETHER!

There are some devices where the microUSB port is upside down. Kindle, Nexus 7, Nexus 5…

Actually, they’re not free. They’re only supposed to be available for those that legitimately purchased CS2. Technically, you would be pirating CS2 if you were to download them; it is basically on the honor system.

GUYS. GUYS.

GUYS.

HOLY FUCK.

GOOD GUY ADOBE releases the ENTIRE CS2 SUITE. FOR FREE.

image

That means free access to Photoshop CS2 – and that already has most of what you could ask for, really.

All you have to do is create a FREE ADOBE ID.

I am not sure about commercial use, but MAN. FUCKIN’ SWEET DUDE

Reblogging for the greater good.

I’m unlikely to pick it up as I honestly never use PS anymore, but here everyone who follows me. Free stuff.

oh wow this is perfect i was just lamenting that i’d have to buy creative suite for my new laptop WELP

Signal boost for any of my followers who need art programs!

The cs2 programs date back only a few years, and still have much of the functionality of today’s more modern ones. The differences between most of the versions are little more than slight modifications or additions of minor features, and UI changes. Go for it guys!!

Also, in case the page is down, here are the download links + serials.

Signal boost for you too, I downloaded it and use Photoshop CS2 to draw now c: enjoy, this is legit!

Just took a reading test from Staples and confirmed that I am still a slower-than-average reader. I mean, I read a LOT, and I love it, and I’ve gotten much faster over the years. But while my dyslexia is mild, it is not something I’ll ever get over, I guess. 

You can test yourself here, just remember that these tests don’t really say anything about how smart you are or your potential for success or whatever. I like to think that whatever neurological weirdness makes it hard for me to process written words also gives me a different way of looking at the world that gives more than it takes. 

I wish I was capable of reading slow. I end up losing a lot of enjoyment out of books because of how fast I steam through them. The more I like the book, the faster I involuntarily read; I’ve broken 3300 wpm on Stranger in a Strange Land.

This probably isn’t the greatest of tests either. For instance, I speed up the longer that I read, and I’m reasonably sure most people do as well. Plus this is a passage with no context; context is everything. :)

Take 1 on this, I only had 1200 wpm. Reading at a higher speed like I would in the middle of a normal book, around double that.

At least in my case, it isn’t that I’m really picking up on words when I’m speed-reading; I can’t tell you what word is listed on what page, and I even stop being able to tell you when a word is misspelled. My brain basically skips over artificial / superfluous language constructs to grab the keys of a sentence (objects, subjects, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and a few other parts of speech, but no conjunctions), harvests the correct words and then plays a story in my brain. If you’ve ever seen the older kids TV show Wishbone, that’s pretty much exactly what my brain does to me.

Then it ends and I notice that I’ve lost a couple of hours of time where I’m not even cognizant of my surroundings. It usually only takes me a couple of hours to finish a novel.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I agree that speed reading isn’t anything about how smart you are. In fact, speed reading in general isn’t even necessarily a plus, if that’s all you can read.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the Fuller Projection?

This map presents a world that is nearly contiguous and at accurate sizes and shapes to the continents.
And there is no “correct” orientation for it (the directionality of north/south being arbitrary after all )

The downsides are that it cuts up Antarctica and distorts the size of oceans, which is bad news for sailors and penguin researchers, but for geography in general it’s AWESOME

(X)

Created by Buckminster Fuller, writer of a gajillion books, owner of a gajillion patents, and the man whose name gave us Buckyballs.

Fuller Projection best projection.
