    It was more than just putting up with a less knowledgeable person. She wanted to control everything and do it all her way. Much of what she said is so over the top wrong that it just baffles me and tried...

    Cool idea! I'm actually working on a blog myself. Just some advice that was given to me by someone who studies journalism is to have a years worth of content ready. So if it's a weekly blog, have no less...

    I bought a Canoscan based on PrintDriver's recommendation, and I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. It's a workhorse.

    There aren't that many scanners to choose from any more. I use a Canoscan 8800 and I'd buy another Canoscan in a minute. Good machine.

    I would never hand over the work to an untrustworthy client without getting payment. You let this happen.

  • Query over laptop purchase...

    Hey guys...

    I've to give suggestions to my boss about potential laptops for him to issue me with for my job.

    They're not in a position to purchase Macs (which would be the most ideal for me)

    Any suggestions for something under a grand?..something that would cope with having PS, illustrator, Indesign etc open at once?..something with decent ram?...processor?..

    I was looking at these...http://www.euro.dell.com/ie/en/home/...=iedhs1&~ck=mn

    What do you think?...

    I've always been impressed by the Alienware range. But it might a bit pricey.

    Have you checked out the outlet stores?

    I got my Laptop from the Dell outlet.

    4 gb ram
    Dual core 2.56 ghz
    256mb graphics card
    2 x 160 gb harddrives
    wifi
    bluetooth
    loads of ports
    blu-ray player/dvd burner
    hi definition display
    etc.
    (oh and a full keyboard.... score, like my laptop has a sep number pad.)

    It was about 780


    You can pick some great bargains.

      I have had a Dell laptop since 2002 and it still runs. I have CS installed on it now. The only thing I upgraded later was the ram. bumped it up to 2G when I installed CS. After all these years the only thing that is wrong with it is it's not as pretty as my macbook air. But it's my first laptop and I can't seem to part with it.
