John,

This is a personal private message, everyone else please ignore.

Dave Milbut has worked tirelessly trying to see if he could help me restore my user name as Ken Nielsen along with my little 5-letter password. I've only been able to log on here by making up a new moniker and password which was fortunate as most forums will not allow you to enter as a new user when you still have your old standard e-mail address. The process has been like swiss cheese: some things work, some have holes in them and are not really there (no cheese.)

Whatever you can do, even to the point of advising me to leave everything as it is, would be appreciated. It would be nice to have my old name back. I think others here have had to change their names also but one thing at a time.

You can contact Dave if you need the background history of his work on this over the past few weeks. Other than that, I'm out of ideas and need help.

Thanks,

Ken

Mr. Saskatchewanobie.  Rise and face the court.  You have been found guilty by Adobe.  We need not tell you of what.  And you will not be sentenced.  Like threads, you will simply disappear.

Not really sad, because now, with my new name, and last week being Canada Week, I can move to eastern Canada and be well accepted.

"Mr. Saskatchewanobie, can we interest you in some moose hide booties?" "Yes Mr. storekeeper. Thank You very much. I've always wanted a pair of moose hide booties." "Well, they're free to you because we like your name."

I'll be sending e-mails from my iPhone of the frozen north (works on ice crystals) to stay in touch. There is no electricity here, so forget about computers.

See, the change in these forums have not caused me too much problem.

Oh, Does anyone have a cure for frostbite?

I was going to comment on a frostbite remedy (somewhat along the lines you did) so I'll just leave it alone. Oh the possibilities ...

I choose to use Freehand MX, it's an abandoned Adobe product so it'll continue to work properly.

Freehand MX version 10.0.2 build 92 rocks, runs circles around Illustrator, but it's too bad it did not have pdf performance built in because Macromedia at that point had not yet secured license from Adobe to implement.

An artists program. Snow writing et.al.

"Freehand MX version 10 11.0.2 build 92 rocks"

You're preachin' to the choir!

I thought it was version 11. Somehow, yesterday, my installed version looked like it said 10.0.2 - I just checked it and indeed

it' says 11.0.2 build 92 today. YES!!! Glad that was just a mis-read on my part and I don't have to dig out the update patch disk again.

Thanks for the confirmation reminder.

Ken

Do you realize what the 11.0.2 build 92 is going to be worth on Antiques Roadshow?

Have you seen the price for a unblemished 1956 Fender Stratocaster and amp?

Have you seen the price for Ming Dynasty china?

Have you...

You get the idea. A mint copy of Freehand MX on CD will bring Radio Flyer wagons full of cash.

Why don't you delete the other OT posts in this thread (i.e. Everything after post # 4)

[Post edited for profanity]

Heh! New that wouldn't last long with Hitler around!

So, here's what I posted, WITHOUT the profanity:

Why don't you delete everything else that is OT in this thread (i.e. everything after post #4)

Hypocrite!

Ah ha! It knew I'd be back!

Ja, Distiller is the workaround, and even that doesn't work reliably. It's sooo much nicer to be able to command-E from InDesign to make a pdf. That's what Freehand MX needs: A strong PDF engine from inside the program.
