Over My Shoulder
Percy: I guess this is life in the tech age. Always having to look over your shoulder to see who is doing what behind your back.
Taylor: So who is doing what behind you, Percy? I don't see anyone there.
Percy: I don't mean physically behind me, Taylor.
Micah: Then where is the cat hiding?
Percy: There's no cat. I'm referring to Windows 10. Remember all the problems with the uninstalled printer this week after Winton installed Creator? Mr. Doug finally fixed the printer problem.
Cyndi: So you can stop looking over your shoulder and relax.
Percy: Not really. Last night Jan started to prepare some photos for today's Mousebreath interview and she discovered the text in Photoshop Elements was broken.
Taylor: How do you break text?
Percy: That's a good question.
Micah: What's the answer?
Percy: I have no idea! But Microsoft managed to do it. After a period of panic, Jan decided to check the web to see if anyone else had that problem and found a whole host of Adobe photo program users have had the same problem after Win 10 Creator installed.
Rusty: So "Creator" is actually a misnomer?
Percy: Right! We want to let Adobe users know to expect this. If the text engine can not initialize after Win 10 Creator installs, the solution can be found on an Adobe forum: https://forums.adobe.com/message/9458385#9458385. It does work, and when you restart your photo program, Adobe will replace the file.
Cyndi: Oh, good, that means we can finish our interview post and sleep well tonight!
Rusty: We'd like to introduce Chuck from the blog Eastside Cats. He lives inside with his sister Angel. The "O" Cats, Sweetie and Patty live outside. You can read The Eastside Inside Outside Cats at Mousebreath.
Taylor: I'm so glad Percy can relax now.
Percy: I can't relax. Who knows what other software Jan will find broken?
Cyndi: Well, Jan is just about ready for bed as we write this, so you can relax for tonight, Percy, and go back to looking over your shoulder tomorrow.
Percy: I'm not sure I can do that.
Micah: Why not?
Percy: I've been looking over my shoulder for so long I can't turn my head. Do any of you know a good chiropractor that makes house calls?
We are joining the Pet Parade hosted by Rascal and Rocco, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou and Owned by a husky.
