  • Looks like no toys for me now.

    Just spent all (and more) of my Christmas money getting my car fixed (all for fuel injectors had to be replaced). Cost me $730 (that did include an oil change) for me to get my car running right again. Looks like I won't be getting the new filter forge afterall. Oh well. My luck; bad. If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all. lol

    Still, repairing the 96 cavalier is cheaper then buying a new car.

    Lyle,

    Sorry to hear about the car. Unfortunately I've got to do the same real soon and on top of that buy new tires. I cautiously bought filter forge over the holidays and I'm so glad I did...it is just what i've been looking for to quickly create some amazing backgrounds. So many filters for the money. There are also some very nice filters for frames and borders.

      Lyle sorry to hear about your car expenditure ( mind you in my experience if it wasnt the car it would be something else !)
      but you are a resourceful man and this will not hamper you, there will be more new toys and some of them free, ( and on the whole they are the better ones ) and i would like to bet in all your plug ins/filters there are some you havent explored properly yet ! ! ! !
      And heck if things get that bad you could always try doing a image "without" ( yep you heard right) them

      feel for you really, there is loads i would like to spend some money on but as i said at the start other things come first ! and it is a long way to my birthday in July

        Without? That's apostasy to a filter guy. lol

        Yeah; two steps forward and 3 steps back for me. Did have a few hours of work yesterday (haven't worked in over a week until then) but none today and more then likely none tomorrow. Again, I have a roof over my head and am far from starving. Would be cool to have a more consistent job to go to, but the jobs for a limited talented person like me aren't that good. Just to give you an idea, we lost a major grocery store (the whole chain actually failed) here in Prattville around a year ago and things are just getting worse. Our home town invested a lot to create an outdoor store complex (outdoor mall if you will), and, except for the handful of anchor stores, they are mostly un-occupied buildings. Just sad. Now that Massachusetts saved our Republic (never thought I would say that about liberal Massachusetts), maybe the feds will now concentrate on getting the jobs back; we shall see.

          Well they are saying that the recession is as good as over here ! !

          but i think the effects of it will be around for quite a while here too, lots of empty business's and people without jobs, a lot of our local big industries are gone

          here's hoping that work picks up for you and by the end of the year you are able to get the new filter forge

            Transport woes
            by palms
            About 4 weeks ago our car died on us, with it costing more than the car was worth to repair, and with the credit crunch on,not the funds to be able to repair or just go and get another one
            so very bravely we have said we will do with out one for a while

            Vanity Plates
            by Doug Nelson
            I'm picking up my new (to me) car tomorrow. Some, especially my fellow Americans, might find it hard to believe that its been almost 15 years since I last owned a car. Anyway, I briefly toyed with the idea of getting personalized license plates (vanity plates) that would be relevant to RP and my career...

            perspective and color question re composite
            by kathleen
            would sure appreciate some thoughts on how to make the old car look like it belongs there. not sure about color, and i think it needs the ps equiv of cutting the steering wheel to the left, and nudge the backend in some. what do you think? something looks wrong, don't know just what.

            I just received this:

            At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the
            computer industry with the auto industry and stated, "If GM had kept up with
            technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00
            cars that got 1,000...
