Macromedia & Adobe

I recently read that Adobe is buying out Macromedia for US$ 3.4Billion in a stock deal. Its seems that the only really good products that Adobe have are Photoshop, InDesign, and Acrobat. Their other products are O.K. and all but it just seems that this ‘merger’ or ‘buy out’ just seems wrong to me. Don’t know why but it does.

I just hope that products from Macromedia don’t get discontinued. Knowing my luck, Macromedia product more than likely would disappear altogether after a period of time after the buyout.

Plus, I use Macromedia Dreamweaver, along with the suite of software I use to maintain my site. Dreamweaver is one of the best html editors out there along with BBEdit.

In the end… this just bites big time.

P.S. I’ve found the following two sites interesting PhotoMatt.net and Mike Chambers blog. The later I found by the way of the former site. Both are interesting to say the least.

People & crosswalks

One of things that I’ve noticed since the weather has warmed up and the snow melted off just about all of the main roads in here in Fairbanks, is that I’ve noticed that people really don’t really care if they go against traffic lights when crossing any giving road in downtown Fairbanks. Its just that when I see people start crossing the road is when I start going through some of the interestions on downtown streets. It seems like that people don’t give a flying fuck for their safety.

At somepoint, regardless of when, where someone could and will get hurt badly if people don’t cross streets safely. The thing is that when people do actully cross the or any street for that matter, is more often than not is against the light on the street that they have just crossed.

want more thoughts?…..
