  • Frequent Program Crashes

    Hey everyone, I'm new here so I'm not sure if this has been discussed before or not, if so please point me in the right direction. Anyways, I am experiencing frequent crashes with a couple of my programs, mainly Dreamweaver 8 and Illustrator CS2. Sometimes it gets to the point where they crash as soon as they are finished loading. I am running these on a Mac PowerBook G4 with OSX 10.4.8 with 1.25 Gb of ram. Has anyone experienced this similar problem or know what could be wrong?

    The first thing to try is repairing permissions with Apple's Disk Utility, which is located in the Applications>Utility folder. Launch it, and then click on the icon of your hard drive, and select Repair Permissions (don't bother with Verify Permissions).

    There could also be some bloated caches, fonts in particular. If you turn your computer off, there are also some routine maintenance scripts that the OS runs which are not being run, because they generally take place very late at night (provided the machine is on, not sleeping, logged out or shutdown). If you would prefer not to leave your machine on all the time, there are several free and/or shareware utilities that will perform these functions for you. They're referred to in this article from Macworld. I use one called Tweak Freak.

    Hope that helps. Keep us posted.

      It's probably a gray camouflage stock texture multiplied over a burlap texture multiplied over vector art of bricks.
      You can get gray camo textures just about any stock site.
      For example,...

      I wouldn't even try using the tire for an A.
      Incorporate it in another way.
      That doesn't look like vector art. Photoshop? Either way you might have issues with the way that tire is illustrated...
