Leaving the Stone Age

GEORGE

Well, Mom has finally reached her breaking point dealing with our stone age "dialup" internet service and dropped connections every 5 minutes. My response is "It's about time!! We haven't been able to visit our friends, we can't keep up with what's going on and I recognized this problem a long time ago. What took you so long, Mom?"

sigh) Humans can be so stubborn, can't they? Anyway, at home we're getting high speed internet through our cable TV company and DSL service at Mom's office, so now hopefully we can get around to seeing everyone more than once every few weeks! And we'll be able to actually view all the movie clips and great things everyone has on their pages.

And...after Daisy told everyone about Adobe Photoshop Elements, Mom found it on sale! Now she just has to learn how to use it. So next time there's a "pink wig" challenge, hopefully we can participate. You know Misty was kind of upset she couldn't wear the pink hair, being a Pink Lady and all.

So, we may be away for a day or two next week while the changeover is being done, but we'll be back!

Mom wants to know where yoo founded da photoshop thingy on sale, she saw it at Sams fur $80 but dad sed he wasn't spending dat kinda money just so she could play wif pikshers.~Speedy

Yay!
It took Mosaic Lady FOREVER to get wireless DSL too. No one understood it, least of all us! And it was so EASY and took 5 minutes, even for her! And now that we have our own blog, we can't imagine not being able to load all the fun photos and videos! Have you seen that award-winning one where Skeezix strolls and Tripper goes along?
5 Star!

OK, we've been procrastinating on Photoshop Elements (we're on a new Mac) but if you say so....

(thanks for visiting our Bianca on her big day!)

My Lady doesn't understand photoshop either. She had to have another kitty blogger put the pink wig on me so I could do the challenge. You should give an update on the Photoshop Elements and let everyone know how you do with it. Maybe I will get My Lady to buy it for me.

Cool - that's great news!

Hooray for the high-speed innernets! I hope you like the Photoshop Elements. It just takes a little while to figure it all out. I was a little bit confused at first.

And even if you can't figure out all of the layers and stuff at first, you can also use it to crop your photos, fix lighting, contrast and colors and all sorts of other stuff. Even though your photos already look very beautiful.

High speed rocks!!! Yay!!! It's so much fun to just click on something and boom! there it is. You guys will love it!

Our Mom was looking at Photoshop Elements, too, because Tazo was soooo upset that she couldn't do the pink wig challenge.

Oh man I could never go back to dial up. If my people ever refuse me broadband, the pooping will commence....

Talk about embarrassment! We got DSL only last year--and my mom is in the information technology industry!

Hmm, Photoshop Elements? Mom is such a bad photographer that maybe that would help her. We couldn't wear the pink wigs either. I didn't care but Lucy and Trixie were upset about it.

I'm so glad that you guys don't have to use dial-up anymore, that must have been furry frustrating. I'll see you around the cat blogosphere once you guys are all set up.

Good news! We use a cable modem here and have been very happy! We hope the switchover goes smoothly!
