  1. CS opens immediateky, but dows not become operative until I click on
    File>open a second time. Earlier versions becam operative immediately.

    CS does a couple of things once the splash screen is gone, and the interface
    is fully visible. Watch your pointer, which will pop up as the hourglass a few
    times. Because I was used to the way that earlier versions opened, I'd get to
    hitting my File>Open (Recent), as soon as the splash was gone. CS is still
    loading and doing whatever it is, that it does. Now, I just get another sip of
    coffee, and let it alone for about 30 sec. and all is fine. I do not know if
    it's phoning home, dialing up Bill Gates, or something totally different, but
    it does take a few extra seconds to get ready for the operator to take over.
    That hourglass is not constant, either. It flicks on (about twice on my
    machine), and even with the normal cursor up, is just not set to go, for a

    Only advice that I can offer is to be patient - about 30sec on my box.

    Yes, I found a similar problem, such that it crashed on me a couple of
    times. The problem I found was the new "what do you want to do?"
    screen that opens inside the main PS Window. Killing that with the
    "don not show this in future" check box, and a little patience, solved
    the problem.

    <g> I've always wondered why greenbacks are all, well, green. Don't
    they have any other colour inks at the US Treasury? Or did they do a
    bulk buy in 1890 or something? ;-)

    I really feel sorry for the FBI if they are looking at my pics :)

    Unless, of course, they have excedingly good taste and sophistication


    Q: how many psychologists does it take to change a lightbulb?

    (the answer will be in my very next post wherever that will be :)
