Get Adobe CS3 to Run in Windows 7/Vista

9:57 am | writes:

This post is a break from the normal and will probably be of interest to almost no one. But, yours truly found a solution that doesn’t seem to be anywhere on the Internet — so I thought I’d post it here to help anyone searching for the same answer: How to Get Adobe CS3 to Run in Windows 7/Vista.

If you have installed Adobe CS3 within Windows 7/Vista and are experiencing the issue where the programs (Photoshop, Illustratror, Dreamweaver, what-have-you) are either not loading or only beginning to load then “not responding” (this happens with Photoshop), rest easy: there is a fix that just might work for you!

Strangely enough, you need to a licensing fix named Adobe Acrobat 8 licensing service update (Windows Vista only).

Even though it’s listed as being for Acrobat & Vista — it fixed my issues with Adobe CS3 & Windows 7.

Good luck!

BarBot 2010

Tonight! In San Francisco…

BarBot 2010: the third annual festival of Cocktail Robotics!

BarBot is a celebration of cocktail culture and man-machine interface. Get a drink from an actual robot. Chat up a snarky electronic bartender. Listen to some graceful tunes being played by robotic music makers. And, after downing your sixth martini, you can finally admit that it’s the geeks who shall inherit the earth.

Cute Things Exploding takes popular, cute videos and makes the subjects of the video explode.

Example:

Here’s a perfectly innocent & cute video of a kitten making a ‘surprised’ gesture:

Here’s that same kitten with the “Cute Things Exploding” treatment:

Swimming Cities

1:20 pm | writes:

The Swimming Cities are one of the most incredible art installations I’ve heard of in quite awhile: both in terms of the resulting works & the experiences of building, sailing & living on the floating constructions. Here’s a story about their production.

Here’s a short video about the project (and about Swoon, whose work is central to the project):
