“I`ve been doing a good bit of critical thinking about web design, the technology
behind it, and pretty much over analyzing the rut I`m in right now. IN the floor
of my office right now, are two books that pretty much explain what I`m doing.
They`re both “Dummies” books….A+ for Dummies and ASP for Dummies. I`m going
to work on my A+, just to have it really. The ASP book is to assist my lack

I worked on a publishing project that I`ve neglected for a few weeks. I`m
really amazed at how EyeCandy filters work. It`s a project done in QuarkXPress

from my Color LaserJet 4500 at work. Sweet printer, wish I has the cash to afford
one. Then from there HQ Color Copies will be printed and distributed to the
members of the association I`m doing this for. Not to worry, is a hospital-related
association. I have decided that Quark was developed by people who are into
S&M. It`s pure torture to get anything working. I like PageMaker a lot better
and it gets things done without pulling teeth. If I did ads for a living again,
I would opt for an Adobe solution of PageMaker and Photoshop….running on Windows2k.
I looked at the InDesign software from Adobe, but I don`t think it`s as good
as Quark or Pagemaker. I talked with a billboard designer and she agrees with
me, and she only uses Photoshop for her layouts. I must admit, that toward the
end of my Advertising days (a few months ago) I was using Photoshop to setup
the ad, and only using Quark for the specs and to fit the graphic in the correct
