SOME OF MY FAVOURITE SITES
GREAT GRAPHICS SITES
LINK BUTTON & BANNER
THE SITE OF THE MONTH!
My passions on the computer are desktop publishing and (as of the last three weeks!) website design. At the moment the main programs I use are PhotoImpact XL for my graphics, Microsoft Publisher & Printmaster Home De Luxe 8. From this list you wouldn't think I had any of the high-powered programs like Photoshop and Pagemaker - not so - I have - but I believe in making my life as easy as possible when I can!
I'm constantly on the lookout for good programs - so please email me if you have something that you use regularly and rate highly.
Anyone who knows me well will know that I have been hooked on computer games for a long time - I had one of the first 'bouncing dot - bat and ball' games on my t.v. as soon as it hit the shops, went onto the Sinclair Spectrum (through most of its incarnations) and then on to the Game Gear, SNES & Gameboy (I still never go anywhere in the world without it)... I thought, when I got a computer, that that would be what I spent half my time doing - but then I fell in love with desktop publishing...
I haven't completely left my gaming days behind though. I completed all of Microsoft's 'Age of Empires' last year - though I have to confess I got stuck on the first level of the sequel 'The Rise of Rome'..... but playing God is very addictive and you can always kid yourself that you're learning something about history.....
It's also hard to drag me away from Scrabble, Upwords, Boggle, Yahtzee or Mah Jongg once I get going. I sometimes wonder what I'm going to be like when I grow up............
