    RIP David Huss

    Those of you who have been using CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT for many users will no doubt recognize the name David Huss. He wrote several books on PHOTO-PAINT and was very active in the Corel community for a number of years. More recently he had turned his attention to other products so his name probably isn't as familiar to users who have joined the Corel community in the past few years. Unfortunately David passed...

    Blazed Font

    I had a quick trip to Las Vegas last weekend to help surprise a friend on his birthday. It was Las Vegas, so I can't really tell you what happened. That's stay in Vegas. But I can tell you that the volcano in front of the Mirage hotel was upgraded a couple of years ago and the fire and water show is even more spectacular than before. That got me thinking about fonts with a fire theme and I found the Blazed font...

    Marital Rating Scale and Coca-Cola Recipe

    Today I'm going to take a quick break from graphics software and pass along a couple of fun things. The first is the Marital Rating Scale from the 1930s.

Ever since I was a kid, I've always enjoyed a cold Coca-Cola. I've also heard about the secret "7x" recipe...

    Epson PP-100 Disc Producer

    There is one piece of computer equipment in our office that is constantly being used. After nearly 2.5 years, it still works flawlessly. The only thing we've ever had to do to keep it running is replenish the supplies. It is the Epson PP-100 Disc Producer and it is used to duplicate CDs and DVDs. At first glance, some users might not think they have a use for such a device while others can immediately think of uses...

    Stop & protest against Shark-finning , directly to the EU commision–or where you live.

    Shark-finning is one of those incredibly cruel  things people do simply to let people have a cup of shark fin soup and make money.

You have the possibility to make a contribution in protesting and support those in the EU commission who tries to stop the shark-finning madness. Latest...

    California Font

    When I think of California, I definitely think of palm tree. I also think of a modern look with a few rough edges. The California font has all of those elements. I also love the example design shown on the font page. This font does have a fairly limited character set. There are only capital letters, numbers and the main punctuation marks. Of course it is probably perfect for a few headlines in your projects.
