  • Adobe Excuse the Interruption, but…

    Okay, Officially I hate Adobe worse than Microsoft now. Get ready for this, guys…

    I just got my computer back from being repaired (1), during which time I had a loaner computer from Fry’s Electronics. I’ve been working from a Time Machine backup on the loaner computer (2) and now have my original restored laptop with a fresh motherboard back again (3).

    I launch Photoshop to edit some vacation photos, since I haven’t seen the computer they were on for the last 20 days, and I’m greeted with this:

    Bullsh!t. Two other computers? How about my old one, a loaner and my repaired one (new motherboard surely generates a new Gestalt value which Creative Suite thinks is a new computer, which technically it is.) Okay well, I’ll try the “I already have deactivated the other computers” option and see what it does.

    Oh come on!¬†What’s ridiculous is that I’ve only ever used this serial number on two computers. I formatted the loaner before returning it and now don’t have possession of it. Oh is some offshore call center person going to get an earful from me.
