I’m such an EQ junkie, but you already know that, right? When I’m sitting down waiting for Vince to get home for lunch, or if he goes to bed with a book, I go to bed with my laptop . . every spare minute, I’m playing with EQ. Same thing happens on the desktop. I hate to admit this but since you know everything else about me, you might as well know this! My iron has auto shutoff. This is an 8 year old T-Fal iron that I paid $6 for and I love it so much. The dial (temp control thing) fell off last year but I have it on a surge protector so it works just fine — can’t adjust the temp though. I have a dozen more irons but I really, really love this one. OK . . it has auto shutoff but it re-heats real quick so don’t feel bad for me. But, I sew a seam, get up to iron. The iron is cold. I shake it and take 10 steps to my desktop and play with EQ while the iron heats up. Only problem is, I get all involved with EQ, the iron heats up, then shuts off again. I go back, shake it, go back and play with EQ and this cycle repeats itself 3 or 4 (or more) times! Can you believe I do such stupid things?
OK . . my point is . . I have EQ files on the desktop and on the laptop and it never fails that the one I want to work on, or grab a border from is on which ever computer I’m not using. So, I run upstairs (or downstairs . . wherever I’m not!), e-mail the file to myself. I even tried putting my EQ files on a thumb drive but . . bet you can guess what happened to the thumb drive . . don’t have a clue where it is!
But yesterday I got smart! I set up a Gmail account for my eq files. I can access Gmail from anywhere. So when I finish working on an EQ file, I just save it for e-mail and send it to myself at Gmail. I’ll never fill up all the space and I can open it, revise it or whatever I want to do, send it to myself again. Then, if I need to delete the old file from Gmail (so as not to confuse myself!), I can do that.
I love it when I think of something that works!
