Typing on...

Got back into Twitter more or less - I've a friend who seems to want to log every footstep; I have trouble remembering to say anything, and of course WILL insist on limiting myself to things others will find interesting. But if anybody wants, I'm up as Calicokittycat. Even with a 14 member follower list, I do seem to get some oddities. The SF writer makes sense (adding sf reader followers, also judging by his profile he may be a filker), but I'm still trying to figure out the lawyer. Maybe a LASFan I don't happen to recognize the name and photo of?

Finally got tired of trying to figure out some of the more esoteric features of Dreamweaver and bought "Dreamweaver CS5.5, the missing manual" by David Sawyer McFarland, from O'Riley press's "missing manual"* series. Naturally enough, the one thing I wanted to know first wasn't in the index** but I learned a couple of things I didn't know from the introduction, which is usually promising. Now reading my way through. This may take awhile; I've owned thinner dictionaries.

* Beats "for Dummies" I suppose. :)

** I checked the net and found it was another one for the What Were They Thinking department - apparently while you could edit your Personal Dictionary (where you put the words the spellchecker flags because it doesn't know what fanac is) in Dreamweaver 4, you can't in 5 and 5.5 even by manually editing a file since they seem to have found a better place to hide them. That's right, one accidental click and forevermore the spelling checker will not recognize one specific typo. Even Word knows better than THAT. Right Guys...***

*** I've sent Adobe feedback. About this and also suggesting an easily found feedback link on their website (I got in via Tech Support..eventually). Yes this gets you spam - it also gets you Useful Ideas from the people USING your product. Sigh...

Apologies folks, but I just had to delete 5 anonymous spams and for the time being, at least, I'm locking future comments to this post. If there's something you have to add send me a private message and I'll add it.
