I love spending my afternoons peacefully lying in a field, staring up
at the sky and looking at the figures and formations my mind conjures
up from the clouds, from cats to dragons to my boss’s face asking me
what the heck I’m doing lying in a field and not in the office on a
Monday afternoon. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to create your
own images within cloud formations without ever having to leave your
desk. We’ll use Phoenix, Aviary.com’s Web-based image editor, which is
akin to Adobe Photoshop but doesn’t require you to install any software.

I’m running a Power Mac G4 MMD (mirrored-drive doors), a 7-year-old
computer. I’m proud to say that I also squeezed all the juice out of my
previous Mac, a Power Mac 7600, and used it for just as long. That’s
what I like about Macs: even old ones are still functional.
why did ATI discontinue the Radeon 9800 Pro Mac Edition? Mine is less
than three years old, but it’s giving me problems. ATI won’t repair the
card because the parts it needs are no longer available, and stores
that claim to sell it still want a whopping $250 for what is supposed
to be an “old” card.
