Really good to hear about your husband, Pharo!  afro

Today brings some much needed respite for me - spending the whole day with my band in our studio, recording  cheers This is technically the first day off I've had in a few weeks - My friend and I have left our art collective and started a new one, due to the third person in our previous one being....let's just say 'difficult'. My friend and I are relieved, but it means we have to set up a whole new business, and everything that entails  Cheesy  we're confident this hasn't affected our professional standing (other art/council folks we work with have been notified and they've all said 'We're surprised it's taken this long for you to do it' which is both surprising and a little worrying - clearly, everyone else saw the nonsense we had to deal with...). Anyway, I'm off to write music! Have a good Sunday everyone!

Good luck, Rev. Sounds like a chance to start again, but half way up the ladder afro

Pharo -- glad to hear the good news. I'm sure the speech will come around in the next few weeks. The brain is surprisingly resilient, and it's only been a short while since the trauma, hasn't it? I bet it's felt like the longest week of your life, though.

Great to hear the good news, Pharo. Regarding brain things; I lost the ability to read in my twenties due to brain damage (caused by severe concussion in my case) but it came back after a few weeks. The brain repairs itself from trauma remarkably well.

I've spent most of this morning backing up everything from my pc onto an external hard drive, and updating everything on my laptop (last done ten months ago, so as you can imagine, there were a LOT of updates). Next job is to transfer the last ten months' worth of documents, pictures etc onto the laptop from the hard drive, and then back up the whole lot onto a pen drive. Of course, if one does this stuff once a week it only takes a few minutes, but which of us ever remember that simple fact? Hours of fun still ahead of me...

I cycled to the river this morning:



Can tell you it gets the heart racing standing next to nature when she does stuff like this!

Brilliant! Heard of the Severn bore, but never actually seen it. Here's the Wikipedia article on the phenomenon for those who are wondering how it happens. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Severn_bore

That's awesome! I'm still not sure that's just a wave. Looks a little magical to me.  Wink But who's to say nature isn't full of magic.


Happy Easter everyone, to whoever celebrates it. My kids are busy with their easter baskets, so I'm stealing a moment to check my email and such. Hope everyone has a good day!

Oh, and delph, that is crazy about how you lost the ability to read, but then it returned. I think I would rather lose any function other than that one.  undecided The brain is remarkable.

Good news, Pharo smiley

Great to see the Severn Bore again, Del. I canoed that bore when I was 16 with other kids from Cheltenham - the nearest we got to surfing smiley

Been messing around with an animation programme, good fun to use and it's free. Managed to fix a small flag to the stern of the boat I use for my avatar and set it moving so it looks as if there's a wind. Checked it in the browser after I'd built the animation and it worked fine, loaded it up here and it's not working so fine. Ho hum, back to the drawing board. scratch

Could be because it's a png -- not all browsers like them, and not all forums. If you can change it to a gif then it will probably work.  Which prog are you using?

The programme I'm using is Gimp 2. Can't believe how good it is for something that free and it don't seem to be causing any problems with the vista system on my PC.
I've already saved it is a animated gif and mostly it works. I guess I'm doing something wrong, not sure what though. Any thoughts on the problem will be appreciated. And in the meantime I'll have a look at the gimp forum. Cheers.

I've never tried it, but I've heard plenty of people say Gimp is good. It's the open source equivalent of Photoshop.

I messed around with doing a few animated gifs and pngs backalong, using imageready, but that was a while ago. Made the Cafedoom animated snow banner that I put up at Christmas, plus a few other bits and pieces. Not sure I could do it again without hitting a few tutorials for a refresher course, though. Can't remember much about it scratch

I've solved the problem with my animated gif. It seems that when I uploaded the file to the cafe it was reduced in size to 70 by 59 pixels - my original file was 100 by 85 -  and turned into a png file which don't support animation. So I reduced the original file in size saved it as a gif and the wind does blow.  cool
