So far so good...

I had to go to the DMV today to get my license renewed. Normally this is a major chore, I think everyone understands this. The last time I went, I had to wait for several illegal mexicans to get washed through the system. They didnt' get their licenses, but they still wasted everyone's time. This time seemed like it would be much much worse, teenagers. Worse than illegals when it comes to this stuff, and they were ditzy females t'boot.

Somehow, by the magic of ... something non government related, I was next in line, even though they were waiting longer, and I got in, took the test, got my license and left all within 10 minutes. I don't have to worry about it again til 2015.

This town rocks.

In other news, I got Photoshop CS3 Extended today. This is one of the reasons I decided to wait on ComicGen working again before I started uploading new BTs. I need some time to get used to it.

For people wondering the secret of "how you can afford to get Photoshop" it's fairly simple. While CS3 extended full version is almost $1000, the upgrade is not. Go to Ebay, buy a copy of PS7, sometimes you can get it, never opened, for about $100. Then just buy the CS3 upgrade. If you don't get the extended (which most people won't if you just use it for paintings, web graphics, etc) then you can get the upgrade for $195 on Newegg.com, CS3Ext upgrade is $350.

And then you can have a legal copy of the latest Photoshop for about $300.
