    Well, I finally did it. I don't know what came into me - I have been resisting this for YEARS. Five minutes ago, I actually installed an Adobe Acrobat Reader update. I'm not kidding. I actually did.

    Of course, I anticipate the next time I look at my desktop, there is going to be that same, annoying, always-present, red and white notification that yet another Adobe update is "ready to be installed."

    But I don't care. I did it. I don't plan to do it again - ever. But, this one time, I did it.

    Adobe is evil.
    Ugh....anyone in the print/design industry has grown to hate Adobe as they have taken over graphic design software completely in the past 5 years with InDesign.
    Just like Microsoft they release unneeded trumped up "updates" that cost $100's per copy.
    And, like Microsoft, make sure you can't open a newer version.
    I hate, hate, hate Adobe.

    Am truly laughing out loud at that one - well played! :clap2:

    I'll have you know, sir, that I have a very fast, DSL connection to my home. So I don't have any trouble at all accessing my AOL email.

    And you thought I was living in the Dark Ages. Hah!
