No review today; I’m rather sleepy from spending some of the night in the ER with a friend (it’s okay; she’s fine), and the cats are preventing me from moving and thus getting to the book I want to review.
Last night I finally got around to trying GIMP, a free open-source image editing software that some folks use instead of Photoshop, which I just can’t afford right now (but could seriously use).
