Here's a link that provides you with the how-to's of making sure all your CC files are backward compatible should you ever decide to go off the cloud.

Summary: Save all Illustrator files as "Legacy Formats" and export all InDesign files to ".idml" format.

And do it BEFORE you cancel your CC subscription or the trial period runs out!

An article from the NY Times about Russia's anti-gay laws. I don't understand how it can be legal to treat people like this just because they're gay or lesbian (or suspected of being gay/lesbian).

It's not right. And more people need to be talking about it.
Russian President Vladimir V. Putin has declared war on homosexuals.

A somewhat simple way to stop people in your circles from seeing all the stuff you hit "+1" on. 
 
WTF Now???

/ start rant

Dear +Google . One of the reasons I am on G+ and not on facebook is because there is no post to all of the people who follow me every time I plus someone's post. I plus a lot of posts. I will consider it one of the worst forms of spam there is if my stream gets filled with posts saying "so and so plussed this post".

I believe I have adjusted my settings so that I do not spam all of the people in my extended circles. I ask you +Google  to reconsider this change. One of the big attractions of G+ is that it is different.

/ end rant

For those who feel like I do, follow this link to learn how to adjust your settings. Disclaimer: The help seemed to be accurate for my browser version. I could not find the location it mentioned in the Android. I have no idea about accuracy of the IOS instructions.

Student with a disability gets a new class photo.
A couple of weeks ago, Anne Belanger of New Westminster, British Columbia, was heartbroken to see her son's second grade class picture. Seven-year-old Miles Ambridge was smiling brightly, sitting in his wheelchair, off to the side of his class. Miles has spinal muscular atrophy, which does not affect his cognitive abilities, but prevents him from walking. The stigma of being different from the other kids was bad enough without being pushed off to...

Check out this photo of a star being born (and no, it's not a photo of me as a baby)!

Ooooo, aaaah.

Check out these posters of things people say, but don't mean. Quite amusing, and great design work to boot.

Also, I've probably said every single one of these at some point.

Excellent article about confirmation bias. I love reading about how the human brain works.

It's fascinating.

Story
Tagline
Was born. Am still alive. Love bacon. Take photographs. Make art.
Introduction
Now, this is the story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down, and I'd like to take a minute - just sit right there - I'll tell you how I became the princess of a town called Fredericton. In York County, born and raised, on the playground was where I spent most of my days. Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool and shootin some b-ball outside of Liverpool school, when a couple of girls (who were up to no good) started making trouble in my neighborhood! I got in one little fight and my mom got scared. She said, "Here's some bacon to ease all your pain."

And the peasants rejoiced.
Bragging rights
Have eaten entire packs of bacon, know every word of every Friends episode, finished my Master's

I bought a TV stand from them a year ago and just went back a few months ago to get a coffee table and they remembered me after all that time. Everyone who works there is incredibly nice and very helpful. Not to mention that the prices are great and the furniture is very trendy. Can't wait till I am able to get a new bed and some night stands from them. :-)

This is a great place for a cheap (and yummy) hot sandwich. They have a small menu (their hot sandwiches are what they're known for) but everything is really tasty and pretty damn cheap. Service has always been good and serving staff are really friendly. They also do half orders for kids (just ask the waitresses) and have jukebox players at every table (so bring quarters for the kids!).
