I AM THE BAD PHOTOSHOP EFFECT!

A conundrum:

Its getting pretty obvious that I'm going to need a new computer soon.  The current one is not as powerful as I'd like it to be and its starting to crash more.

However...

I also enjoy doing digital art work.   A few years ago I got some of Adobes Creative Suit programs (photoshop, illustator, flash, etc).  Since then Adobe switched to its creative cloud format.  Even if I get the last release, I've heard they won't activate and work anymore. 

I wouldn't mind jumping to Corel, or Toon Boom, or Quark-if only they had a bigger share in the professional design field.  I feel that if I did get them I'd be just be able to free lance instead of getting a professional job.

Richmond is a hilly town, lots of high banks & deep gullys...
Lot more of the same as you drive out Rt 60...
Lynchburg is pretty crazy, with streets & roads on hills & valleys so steep, I don't see how they paved them...

Anyhoo, the trip there & back got me wondering what sort of effect terrain would have on a nuclear war...
If ya lived someplace hilly, there'd hafta be one or two safe places to be...

In a limited exchange geography might play some role and increase survivors, but in an all-out nuke war, forget it. During the Cold War the popular notion was, you know, a nuke would hit New York City. What we know now was the idea was saturation, and the Soviets had over a thousand warheads primed to hit New York alone. Nothing would have made it. After the first couple thousand obvious targets you start running out of prime spots, so it became crazy, and we know the USSR had zeroed-in on absurd locations like large gas stations, flea markets, high schools which could have been used as shelters. They even were set to pick off famous people's houses. When you have 30,000 warheads, you gotta do something with them. So to answer your question, it would depend. If North Korea sent a nuke, or when the day comes, which it will, that an Islamist sets off a nuclear bomb here, hills and proximity may matter, but in a large-scale war, forget it, none of us are making it out alive. Being surrounded by hills that lie between you and a large town could, I guess, make the difference in roasting to death over the course of a few seconds versus being vaporized, though. My suspicion is, if you looked into it, Richmond probably has its own cluster of Chinese and Russian nukes (possibly even French warheads*) aimed at it, and probably little Lynchburg does too. (Hey, why leave Fallwell's grave alone, you know?) "If you got it spend it" applies to nuclear weapons as well as everything else.

"...I tell you now to enjoy life..."

*Did you know France has about a thousand warheads aimed at the US? French policy is its missiles go five ways.

I bought a refurbished one off www.bidorbuy.co.za (our Ebay) last year for ZAR 800 (about $70) and while it works OK, it makes noises if you use it for more than an hour and the fans go crazy while its' battery life is around 10 minutes, if you're lucky.

Guess I should use some of my September birthday bonus and buy a new one?  Wink

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
