    Remembering 9/11

    The company I work for had staff at a trade show here in the UK on that day. Hurried phone calls were made to remove a lenticular flip card on our Stand which showed the towers bend as a plane flies over them. One day changed a product from funny to incredibly bad taste.

    Herkules pro

    Not sure if this helps but I had a similar issue with not registering film a while back. On start up I could hear the motor run as the sensor was pulled across but it would the throw out an error as it couldn't find the film. Turns out it was a combination of 2 things, film is getting less...

    I investigated the same thing a year ago when somebody decided that our image setter was too expensive to run and could be replaced by inkjet printers, needless to say we still have the image setter.

    Finally got around to updating from CC to CC 2014 and found something not mentioned, CC 2014 will not install on Macs running older than 10.7 . Haven't found a solution yet but I feel like Apple and Adobe in partnership to force out usage of old software and hardware.
