    Should I accidentally drop into Germany unannounced Corinna, I'll let you borrow mine (or the 430EX). Out of curiosity, how far is Frankfurt from this big meet up next year?

    Sorry Ian, I just realised I hijacked your thread. Congrats on the new gear. Can you tell your uncle I'd also appreciate a copy of CS3, delivery to Riyadh if you'd be so kind. ;)

The only thing that sucks is that its for mac only and the only mac i have in the house is one that im borrowing from someone for the summer. after the summer i have to give it up. oh well i get to use it for a little bit still.

    I have a Mac too so if you feel the need after you no longer have a Mac to work on you can just mail that CS3 right on over here! :wink:

    Congrats on the cool gift though.

    P.S. Pick up a Mac Mini cheap (just over $500 or even less on eBay) and open it up and stick some extra RAM and a bigger HDD and you will have a Photoshop machine!
