More Merger News: Adobe plugin mimics Macromedia Contribute…

PC Pro has a article about a new Adobe plugin for GoLive CS2 that allows multiple designers to access the same site to make changes and edits. This plugin strangely mimics the functionality of Macromedia’s Contribute design tool, which allows multiple designers to manipulate web sites via Dreamweaver and other applications via a check-in/check-out system. This plugin seems to indicate that adobe may have something sinister up its sleeves when it comes to future Dreamweaver support after the merge. This would be a huge mistake considering the large numbers of designers who would sooner hand code than use GoLive. We would cry out, if our beloved Dreamweaver was replaced with some GoLive-type product with its conviluted site design.

A quick aside just for the heck of it… who’s linking to this post? I am. Engadget just started allowing trackbacks on their posts to allow their users to see more related sites discussing the same subjects.

Five Day Weekend

Memorial Day
My weekend started Thursday
With Volunteering

Six hundred grade three
children got free bike helmets
and I got sun burnt

Free For All Friday
also a day off for me
went to a movie

Revenge of the Sith
was an entertaining flick
Saber fights quite slick

Weekend promises
Much rest and relaxation
and party Sunday

Hey

Hey there —

I can’t write poetry, I really wish I could. I have ideas but when I write them down they sound stupid.

I was forced to write poetry in 8th grade, or maybe 7th. Either way, it sucked royally. I wrote a “poem” about not being able to write a poem. Wonder where that is….?

Barbecue? No, Skewered.

Whoosh!
As I leave the office door,
dust kicks up from dusty floor.
Three days of nothing must I do
and through that office door I flew.

Whoosh!
Screeching down the road I drove
parked the car and out I dove
in my house where freedom waits
just beyond the iron gate.

Remote control in my right hand,
I have finally found the promised land.

Whoosh!
The wife appears with mop in tow.
Says I should go outside and mow.
Says I to wife, “Oh God, hell no!”
Can’t you see my favorite show???

Whoosh!
“The barbecue is needing cleaning.”
“The bathroom toilet is a-leaking.”
“Take this mop and grab a pail
clean up for the big yard sale.”

Whoosh!
All my dreams for sloth’s delight
leave me swiftly for the night.
Thoughts of lounging in my den –
replaced with errands for pecked hen.

Memorial day weekend’s promise brings
nothing but forbidden thoughts of barbecued things.

Almost forgot to start the Memorial Day Weekend Free For All…

an old notebook doodleToday is Free-For-All Friday! Free for All means you can post whatever you want on my blog. Say what you want to say, share a link, complain about the wheels on your chair, etc…all you have to do is login and post! Need an idea of what to write? Write a short poem about the coming holiday weekend. Also, if you like poetry, try out my father-in-law’s poetry forum site: AnOccasionalVerse.com. Hope I’m able to make it to everybody’s FFAF today and please enjoy. EDIT: oops, forgot to enable the guest account right, works now!

1. Please keep it somewhat clean…if you don’t think I would post it, don’t. God forbid if I find spam or porn links…
2. Feel free to link your blog…just make sure you say who you are. (sign your post)
3. I reserve the right to edit/delete inappropriate posts (or those with really obvious spelling mistakes)
4. Please don’t link to images, since this is an artist portfolio site I prefer to have only my artwork here, your thoughts on anything are fine I just need to draw the line at image linking, thanks.

Quick haiku, for you…
Why not write a poem too?
Your turn now, have fun!

Check the FFAF blogroll plus a larger version of the art drawn in one of my notebooks during class so long ago that all I remeber is it was during college (but not which one or when) after the jump.
