there's a cd in the drive which refuses to mount. or eject, using the reboot/mouse down trick, or the eject key.

there's no pinhole for the manual eject (thanks apple)

and the cunts at the so-called genius bar have no appointments at all. none. at any london store. fucking apple.

any of you guys know any tricks?

Anyone got any experience with this... Printing some big images on lightweight paper. Is there a magic button in Photoshop that gets rid of any excess colour?

xbox - One or 360?

My son is wanting an xbox for his birthday. He said to me he's happy to get a 360 but I'm just wondering if that is OK or not? I don't follow gaming at all so I have no idea whether 360 is ancient outdated technology or not...

Any assistance greatly appreciated!

How are you sharing files?

I've used Dropbox in the past, just wondering if there's anything better?


Monitor Glare

Just moved into a new office space. Tons of lovely natural light, but now the glare on the monitors is killing everyone. Short of moving or installing shades, has anyone had the same issue and if so, how did you deal with it?


Dropbox = GDrive

Dropbox just announced that the 9.99$/month plan with 100Gb of storage will now have 1Tb of storage.

That means Dropbox equals Google Drive who is offering the same plan; 9.99$ for 1Tb

They also announced many new features, info over there:…

I know there's often question about those services on QBN. So now you're up to date.

I was on Dropbox before but I switched to GDrive when they announced the 1Tb for 9.99$ plan a few months ago. I think I will go back to Dropbox, i always liked DB better.


Video in PDF issue - Help!

I'm making a full screen PDF presentation with MP4 video in it and having a couple of issues with the PDF afterwards. When you get to the page with the video on the keyboard left/right arrow navigation stops working. You can progress with the mouse as long as the video is not full screen i.e. as long as you have some area to right/left click on which is not the video area. Also (and this is the biggie) there is a stitching type line left on the following page in the place of where the video was on the previous page.

So far everything has been compiled in InDesign and exported from there. We're viewing on acrobat 9 and above. The video files are linked fine to the PDF and are H.264.

Has anyone had this issue when putting video in a PDF?

Font ID/Advice

Looking for a similar serif, something similar to the original letterforms. I thought it was Sentinel, but it's just not, feels totally different. I have a concept I'd like to customize in a similar style, but a little more nautical and coming up flat on options. Commercial or free is fine.

Thanks in advance.
