Since when was 256MB not enough?

I felt particularly motivated to upgrade this evening so I ordered 512MB DIMMs for both the desktop and laptop. The memory upgrade for the laptop cost a bit more than the one for the desktop. Still, at around $250 for the two combined, it's not what I would call unaffordable. The only thing I have to wonder is why I didn't do that sooner.

The sample copy of Photoshop Elements Techniques arrived on Saturday. At 16 pages, including the cover, it's not a very thick periodical. The premiere issue covers Elements 3's new features. It also offers an overview of the Elements 3 interface for beginners, two step-by-step tutorials, a short Q&A section, and a few filler blurbs about keyboard shortcuts.

Unfortunately, I'm not too impressed with the content. Most of it was already covered in Scott Kelby's Photoshop Elements 3 Book for Digital Photographers. That may be because the newsletter is just starting up and so they have to include some of the basic techniques, but I would expect a little more in each newsletter if they price an 8-issue subscription at $49.

How did I ever live without undoclosetab?
