The subscription is cheaper if you buy it new every year and upgrade to the latest version.

The full suite at regular retail price it would take roughly 50 months til you end up paying more. 2 and a half years for Photoshop at regular retail price.

So for people that use it regularly and keep upgraded it is a better value.


I use The Web Developer CS4 every day. I use Indesign (which I had to purchase separately, a couple of times a month. I would love to upgrade, but at the price it is, I can't justify it every release cycle. For me, I'm sticking with Cs4, might upgrade to 5 if I can find a good version at a good price.

But then, It's just me here. I'm the only one using it.

And like Hal said, if/when I leave here, and move on, I'm not suddenly without my software, since my work sprang for the 3 license CS4 so that I could have it at home as well.


The photographer community is furious.

The curious thing is that Adobe knows damn well they can't do this with Lightroom, because there are far too many good competitors, unlike Photoshop.

What I expect to see now over the next year or two is those competitors now have a compelling reason to upgrade their software to add enough features that photographers have no need for Photoshop anymore.

Adobe really may have pulled a Quark here.

Anyone know if it's possible to host a WoW server and leave it set on "good ol' days"? I just made it to BC last night on my cow paladin, and was expecting to me challenged by Hellfire Ramparts. Was very disappointed. It was so stupid easy... and in crap gear, too. I've got stuff left over from ZF still. I don't know if this is due to a massive down-tuning of dungeons or a massive up-tuning of level 60 characters and heirloom gear, but whichever it is, it should not have happened. This game is a shell of its former self, and I feel like I'm just going through motions, not even being challenged at all.

I remember when we actually had to CC and exert effort to complete dungeons... this new state is just sad. And as a result, no one has any etiquette in dungeons anymore... It doesn't matter if you a tank or a mage, whoever's up to the line first is who's going to pull. No one talks, even says "hi". They only time they talk is if you roll on a piece of loot they think they're entitled to.

I do think they should tune SOME things down a BIT, like UBRS for five, that's cool. That's great! It should be tuned for five people in level 58 questing/dungeoning gear, because then you could complete it, but it should not be so stupid easy that you only have to spam your main nuke to win and get free items. You should still have to CC, let the tank tank, follow a kill order, use interrupts, and have to read the short article on the boss to not fall prey to a boss gimmick. The boss of Blood Furnace, Mr. Orc Whats-his-face, did his blow-up trick, and I was the only one who ran out. Everyone else stayed in for the bomb, and I couldn't even tell that it hurt them at all. I mean, really? That's just stupid. That should be, at minimum, a near wipe, if not a full wipe.

I should add that I guess I'm a bit of a fool for expecting a change from the classic dungeons to burning crusade. I just figured they were harder to tune to the level of who might be in them, and that's why it was so easy, and that at level 60 with a gear reset from Outland, maybe they'd be properly tuned. But no... just a massive, across the board, easy-mode.

You are talking about private servers, which are frowned upon, specially since blizz devs are known to visit this place every now and then.

Just saying, it was practically impossible to wipe to Hellfire Ramparts normal back in the day.

if things were like there were "back in the day" there would be far fewer alts. The goal, for better or worse, is to push people to the current content.

Since you brought that one up.. biggest problem now is idiot tanks that try to skip trash to "save time" and wind up wiping because one of the dps or a healer butt pulls the trash.

Another problem is anyone from the KT server.

There's still challenge in the game, it just happens to not be in content 4 expansions old. Imagine if Ramparts required a co-ordinated group to complete on normal as you leveled, you basically wouldn't have people queuing for it in Dungeon Finder.

The same applies to heroics at 90, the name is a misnomer, Blizzard have discovered that challenge + automatic grouping is not a winning formula.

I wonder if the next expansion will see a rebound away from the automated group making towards more intentional player-initiated grouping like in previous expansions.

Already addons have surfaced to leverage xrealm grouping (oQueue) and it's not too uncommon to see pug raids forming in there.

always a fun time.

The funny thing is that back in vanilla, KT alliance had some pretty damn elite guilds. Hell I was social in a guild that was like top 10 world first for ony kills back then.

Things change though.

Can't get past the Rank 4 Beasts boss in Brawlers guild (as prot). He hits for next to 0 dmg so i can't generate enough vengeance to beat the enrage.

Honestly you don't need to change gear if the ilvl difference is so big. With such Ilvl difference most of the DPS comes from the STR which will be much higher in your tank set. Just swap trinkets and weapons :)

I never understood why people go into the Brawler's Arena as prot or healing, you're not gonna beat the enrage timers more often than not.

Decided to try that openraid thingy to try to get my hunter through Terrace. (Could use shoulders, and helm would be an upgrade too.)

Ended up signing up for about 10 different events. Got accepted for 2, one of which the raid leader never showed up for, and the other one of the tanks was a no-show and nobody could find a replacement.

Wasted an entire weekend waiting for responses to signups (most of them just left everybody in "not approved" without moving anyone up) instead of doing what I should have been (either running my main through ToT LFR or building a gallows for myself).

Openraid has gone down in quality alot since it started, in the beginning it was basicly heroic raiders who wanted to finish content they missed, now a days its filled with alot of people you can find in typical Trade/Lfr's : /

Haven't really noticed any decline in the quality of openraid events i've attended. You do have to be a bit careful if you've just mindlessly signing up for events. Always question the organizer if it appears he doesn't have the xp he's claiming to have.


I found out the hard way the other week where i signed and joined a TES Hc run only to find the raid leader was a very under geared warrior who didn't say a word. After about 10mins of us asking what he was doing he simply left group, thankfully we managed to organize ourselves enough to kill the 1st 3 on hc.

We're having a 20% failure rate on macbook pros when doing their OSX updates. They just never finish installing after restarting and end up with a HD lockup condition.

Recovery mode fails to repair because the HD gives lock up errors, even that is not too bad in and of itself. Format the hd, reinstall the OSX and all that, and considering we get 200Mbps download speeds, it takes nothing when it connects to the network when under repair mode it downloads the OSX from scratch.

The problem is that doing so kills all the ipad management. Which means we gotta restore to factory all the ipads that are to be managed by that macbook. Each restore takes 5 mins, each macbook manages at least 25 ipads (50 in some cases), then getting all the ipads supervised, then getting all the apps installed into the ipads, then grouping up all the apps in the ipads...

And the macbook doesnt accept any prior backups from the ipads because the osx says they were supervised by a different macbook...

I just read that Games of Thrones is likely going to be suspended in Italy because catholics didn't like it.

I wouldn't be upset if there was just a bad person in the group or a couple wipes or whatever, that happens.

I'm upset because I didn't even walk in the damn door to the instance after trying to get into groups all weekend. Evidently ilvl 507 isn't good enough for normal ToES or something.
