ATPM 14.11

The November issue of About This Particular Macintosh is now available for your reading pleasure.

Charles returns with another Filemaking column, taking readers through layouts and tables in the book database we’re building. There are lamentations from across the Pond, as Mark bemoans Honda and FireWire neutering, yet we can rejoice and be thankful this month on the American side of the ocean, as Ed has updated the GTD application master list.

Lee breaks down the various file formats available to us in Photoshop, while ATPM reader Zac Stivers was kind enough to share some photos from his hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas in our desktop pictures offering. I think the second Quince photo is lovely.

Speaking of photos, and Photoshop, Lee also reviews Mask Pro 4.1.2, which can be helpful for those of without the experience Lee has in building masks from scratch. Chris rocks the Logitech MX Revolution’s world, putting the ergonomically-shaped, wireless mouse through its paces. Ed likes the intriguing PDFPen, while Linus enlisted the help of his wife and son in his review of the game StoneLoops.

We say good-bye to a dear friend this month in the pages of About This Particular Macintosh. Matt Johnson has been drawing his Cortland cartoon for us for six years, and this month, brings the series to a close. Matt has seen a lot of changes in his life of late: new wife (congratulations, you guys!), new job, and a new city. He’s taking a breather from cartooning to get in to the swing of things, but assures us he’ll be back in the near future.

Thanks for six great years, Matt, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

As usual, ATPM is available in a variety of reading formats for your comfort. Thanks for reading!
