Well, what do you know! I'm running Semagic off my thumb drive, and Mobipocket Creator and portable Mozilla. :D All that remains is Photoshop. (Which I found and am attempting to install on my thumb drive even now.)

Of course, all of this makes my thumb drive exponentially more important than it used to be. I will have to invest in a backup version.

I have to admit, it's pretty amazing that these days, you can run software off those little things. It just goes to show - protections people try to put in place never seem to outpace the evolving ability of new technology/software. Companies remove all ability for people to install software on their machines, but they can still run it off ultra small, portable devices, so what are they reall gaining?

I don't care, so long as I get to keep all my bookmarks, and use the software I've become very comfortable with. What's funny - I actually use Photoshop for my job, but they're too stingy to buy it for me.

"We've got a couple of old copies floating around, but you'd have to fight to get them to buy a license for you."

"Okay," I say, "so what alternate software do you have for me to use?"

"Paint"

...

"Paint? Are you serious?"

I mean, really? Paint? It's like the most crap graphic editing program out there.

(Oh, damn. Unfortunately, while PS seems to have installed just fine, I can't get it to run? It starts and then nothing happens, nothing opens. IDK. I'll have to do some more work with it.)

I am only wokring a half day today, which means I'm in a really excellent mood despite still being horribly sick. Come on, stupid cold - I'm tired of having you now! Go away.

Note to Christmas shoppers - I'm going to be doing a really radical sale with my Etsy store, in other words, huge discounts on all current stock in a pre-Christmas sale. I'll be setting up the details this weekend, and starting it sometime this month. This will be on all current inventory. I need to move some stuff. Storing it is taking up a lot more room than you might think, and I'm on the verge of setting up a new workstation/re-organzing all my jewelry stuff. The less I have to re-organize, the easier it will be.

I enjoyed The Vampire Diaries last night. I thought last week's ep was better, but last night's was still good. They still aren't pulling any punches with Damon as a bad guy. :D

Next week's TVD episode looks to be really good, I just saw a clip on Youtube between Damon and Bonnie and it was amazing, I hope they build things about between those two this season.

(Pssst! Spooks/MI-5 series 8 started airing this week on the BBC. First two eps are out there. And, yes, Richard Armitage as Lucas North is back.)
