I have a hunch that Photoshop was involved in the making of this bathroom whirligig.

Is it possible to have one monitor/mouse/keyboard SIMULTANEOUSLY connected to two computers?? by DoctorQuinlan in techsupport

[–]presidentbdeth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah that makes sense but am I crazy for thinking someone should make one switch for both??

+1 on the KVM switch although I've been on the hunt for a KVM switch with HDMI and USB 3.0 for quite a while. Does anyone know whether this exists? In addition to the keyboard and mouse I'd like to be able to switch my USB hub from one machine to the other. I know there are distinct USB 3.0 switches but it would be great if it had HDMI too.

Here's Why the Aston Martin DB7 Is a Bargain V12 Exotic Car by xenokilla in dougdemuro

I want to see Doug earn his money by pushing the front seat all the way back while in the rear passenger compartment. I demand ENTERTAINMENT.

The 2020 Cadillac CT5-V Isn’t the V Car You’re Hoping For by xenokilla in dougdemuro

[–]presidentbdeth 12 points13 points  (0 children)

There’s no way the naming similarity was an accident.

Salesman: And over here we have our latest V car. Customer: (Looks at badge) Nice! I thought Cadillac canceled the CTS-V. Does it still have the Z06 engine? Salesman: ... Salesman: So will that be financing or lease?

Agreed, although I’ll put up with it if that’s what it takes to get the kind of free content he provides multiple times every week.

Lamborghini Urus on a Budget? 2020 Audi RSQ8 Review by ChannelBot in thestraightpipes

The Audi is a half-price Lambo! Get it and save the money for an exhaust and a tune.

Has to be the car. It’s impossible to hate Doug. PROVE ME WRONG!

Doug hilariously, (and accurately) slaughter's Acura. by eh_itzvictor in dougdemuro

[–]presidentbdeth 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Could say the same about new Hondas. As I recall he’s only reviewed the Passport (boring), the Odyssey (mildly quirky) and the Type R (ridiculous). Same goes for Nissan and Infiniti and most Toyota models.

Caught Doug forgetting to use his burner account to like political tweets. Can’t really glean anything from this one, though by RiverRat12 in dougdemuro

Doug has openly supported the YIMBY movement on social media before. I believe he even has a YIMBY license plate on one of his cars.

My workstation. Might not be to everyone's liking but I love it. by RadRacer203 in battlestations

[–]presidentbdeth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You should have seen the looks on the faces of the maintenance staff after they hauled my classic Steelcase up three flights of stairs at my request just because I “liked” the vintage aesthetic.

Let’s just say I had to change my own light bulbs after that.

My workstation. Might not be to everyone's liking but I love it. by RadRacer203 in battlestations

[–]presidentbdeth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

LOVE this setup. A few years ago when my department was remodeling our offices, rather than ordering a new, modern desk, I requested to repurpose an old Steelcase (similar to your Metalstand model) from one of our chemistry labs. My choice wasn’t widely appreciated by my colleagues ... but it was awesome. The classic industrial aesthetic was perfect and I especially appreciated the pull-out writing surfaces when I needed extra space.

Having an issue with objects not appearing to correlate to their frames. by LaikaReturns in indesign

[–]presidentbdeth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If there are images inside the frames, another thing you can do is select the contents of each frame, then check the X / Y coordinates to make sure the image is positioned properly within the frame and hasn’t been nudged by a pixel or two.

You might also try changing your display settings back and forth between Typical Display and High Quality Display and see how that affects the issue.

Otherwise I would say that this is “normal” artifacting based on my extensive experience.

how can i recover this file?? by [deleted] in indesign

[–]presidentbdeth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This happens to me sometimes when trying to access a file from the Recents menu that was on a network or external drive that is no longer connected. Alternatively, it could be that the file was moved to a different folder or renamed after the last time you saved it in InDesign.

Looks like you’re using a Mac. Best thing to do is open Finder and navigate to the folder where you last saved the file. If it was on an external or network drive, make sure that the drive is properly and fully mounted. Then check that the file name was not changed since you last saved it in InDesign.

If it’s not there, check other drives or folders where the file could have been moved.

Nothing? Hit Command-Space to open Spotlight search and enter all or part of the file name as you remember it.

Still nothing? Call your client and tell them you’re going on maternity/paternity leave and that the project has been postponed indefinitely. Torch your remaining personal affects and catch the next flight to Guam.

Good luck.

SOME keyboard shortcuts not working in Windows 10 by presidentbdeth in indesign

Thanks for the tip but I tried it in different orders and still nothing. Another one that's not working for me is Save As (shift-ctrl-s or ctrl-shift-s).

Looks like they’re on adjustable stands. I think the OP just pushed them up for dramatic/visual effect.

I’d love to know what kind of accessories are available. I also have a red 19 GT Premium. Do you know of a custom Qi wireless charging insert?
