Fireworks CS6 Internal Error Occurred

So Hey Hi! If FW gives you the message “internal error occurred” and is blocked this is a quick way to un-block it:

1) Shut down FW through the Task Manager————-> ctrl+alt+canc

2) Go to——————-> C:\Users\<<username>>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Fireworks CS5

and proceed to change the name to the following folders (add a few letters at the end for ex.):

Fireworks CS6.mch —————>  Fireworks CS6.mchOLD

Font Map.txt ———————–> Font Map.txtOLD

the language folder, for example    Italian——————–> ItalianOLD  or    en_GB ——————–>  en_GBOLD

3) Start Fireworks ———-> problem solved; FW recreated the folders not finding them under the correct name and we’re good.

 

I was going crazy searching for this fix, so hope this will help someone out also if similar solutions are already provided in various forums (sooo hidden though).

Wikileaks>Iraq>Numbers

The war logs released by Wikileaks are slowly showing how insane the Iraq situation is. It is difficult to discuss the topic so let’s take a look at the numbers.

According to the logs there were 32,563 cases of civilian murder in Iraq between 2004 – 2009

10.871 were shot

435 were beheaded

164 were kids

Between 2004 and 2008, 180.000 iraqi were arrested. 1/50 of the adult male population.

In at least 1300 cases there are also references to torture, including that of 32 children.

Wikileaks previously released the ‘Afghan War Diaries’. But Iraq during the same period, was five times as lethal with equivallent population size.

The violence detailed in the documents is horrific. It includes skin peeled from bodies, acid burns, attacks with electric drills, electrocution, branding, fingers and limbs torn off, eyes pulled out, ears, noses and parts of the face sliced off.

The world is sick of silence. When will troops withdraw from Iraq? Apparently they are only worsening an already difficult situation..

How to add Whosamongus in WP sidebar: HTML code

  1. Would you like to know the number of readers you have?
  2. Want to instantly see where your visitors are from?
  3. Or find out when you had the most people online?

Getting stats from Whosamungus is easy and needs no registration.

The only problem users are having is how to FIND THE HTML CODE for our WordPress blogs.

Here are some easy steps to follow:

1. Go to the site Whos.amung.us

2. Click on “SHOWCASE” above on the right. Then chose your favourite stat. It can be a Map or a Hit counter, just remember to follow these steps each single time. Two in one, not happening.

3. After having chosen the best configuration (colors, size etc.) the site will give you a code. This is not the HTML you need for WordPress! But straight below the code, on the right you will see the “POST” button. Click it.

4. Now chose WP (WordPress) in the bar that opened. Insert your blogs address.

5. The html code will appear in a new post, on your Blog.

6. Copy that code and insert it in a new TEXT WIDGET in your sidebar. Save the changes.

7. Now you have your personalized stat/hit counter/map 🙂 You can now delete the whosamongus html post.

Since I couldn’t figure out how to do it at first, I hope this simple steps will save you some time!

If you have some questions, you can find me in the comment box. Yes, I live there.

For some motivation, while applying the changes:

The day after Wikileaks

This morning I woke up with this question: What is the most important lesson we can learn from the cablegate?

I think the answer should be that power can be man’s worse enemy and that it takes courage to stand out from the pack.

Let me try to explain.

It seems that the world is facing a value crisis. Where have we left respect? Where are loyalty and compassion?

After I caught a glimpse of the inner workings of US diplomacy, the lack of consideration for “the other” is what looked like the real scandal to me. Allies, Us friendly countries, basically everyone is treated with superiority by the United States Government.  No wonder that the markets in the recent/ongoing economic crisis have a trust issue!

Doesn’t anybody realize that there is no such thing as the most powerful country in the world because our governments are not corporations in competition with one another? Sure, there can be a country that is more influential than others, but should it be allowed to be more influential at the expense of others? And especially, should it be allowed to call itself a democracy?

I read an interesting question today on twitter: “If wikileaks was a country do you think there’d be marines rolling thru the streets in tanks by now?”

My answer to that is definitely yes. The modern world is ruled by diplomats, who establish their power through consensus and the documents that started to leak yesterday are a considerable threat to their image and as a consequence also to their power. In the past, they’ve started wars for far less reasons!

Fortunately, the government has no one else to blame but itself and the internet proves once again to be a great vehicle for freedom of information. All in all, the good thing is that citizens all around the world can finally have an insight into what goes on in politics daily. On the other side, the bad thing is that those unethical behavior are so common that a change is unlikely to happen anytime soon.

Today I also read an article about Steven Cowan, a 67 old man from Wisconsin, who allegedly fired a shotgun into his television after he saw Sarah Palin’s daughter moving forward in an american dance competition. What he was so angry about was Bristol Palin making it to the next round without having improved at dancing like others on the show. His wife reported that before shooting he said something like “The f@…ing Politics” because he “was upset that a political figure’s daughter was dancing on this particular show when he did not think she was a good dancer”.

And BANG there goes the new TV. Poor Steven just couldn’t take it any longer.

Now you see I’m Italian, but what do I have in common with Mr. Cowan?

Sometimes, I see injustice and I feel powerless.

So the DayAfterWikileaks even if the good old world still smells and feels the same, I hold on to the fact that I’m not alone. There are other citizens in other countries that feel like shooting their televisions too, and some of them actually use the power they have to try changing this world.

And the DayAfterWikileaks my thoughts go out to everyone who’s struggling and to everyone who does the right thing also if it doesn’t pay off in the short term.

To those I say thank you because i know that: It’s so easy to hate, it take guts to be gentle and kind

To everyone else remember that you’ve got the power to let power go:

Let me know in the comments what your DayAfterWikileaks impressions are!

I appreciate your time 🙂

Daily Quote – Oscar Wilde

“Always forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys them so much”

Oscar Wilde

 

The unexercised bunch

Did you ever notice that there is no unity in the Anti-exercise front? I mean if you google the word exercise you get 126.000.000 results, it is a very trendy topic and everybody thinks they have the right to tell you how to work out. Apparently they want you to do some exercise really badly. And often. Preferably until you feel sore. The question is, are you just as sick of all the “I’m cool, I exercise the whole day, you just lazy” drama?

This is the right time to get together and shout “Un-worked out folks of the world, unite!

Let’s start with understanding which common mistakes and frequent misunderstandings lead to our daily discrimination:

1)      It’s easy to put off exercise.

No it isn’t! You have to be strong-willed, and very good at procrastination. It’s not everybody’s cup ‘o tea.

2)      People quit/don’t start working out because of – confusion – boredom –laziness – you don’t know how to exercise.

What!? Am I wrong or are they trying to make us sound stupid? This my answer: Oh frenetic jumping and sweating people, I beg you not to offend the quality that makes us, the gentle desk warmers, want to reduce our overall energy expenditure. We are intelligent, efficient creatures who deserve to be treated appropriately. Period.

3)      Stop making excuses.

Wait, I don’t call your arguments excuses, now do I? That is just impolite.

a

Since we deserve an evidence based theory, here are my humble remarks:

1) You can’t be good at everything. We are good at foreplay. And by that I refer to the “You can’t perform exercise on an empty stomach” kind of foreplay.

2) Exercise can be harmful if you burn yourself out. We go at our own pace. Don’t get me wrong, health is important, but walking, bicycling to work and gardening are some excellent replace activities for gym work out. Besides, you get to be outside and store some fresh air.

3) We are deep breathing and meditation champions. It doesn’t mean that we don’t get hysteric at times, but.. oh well… As Robert Benchley said “I do my best work sitting down. That’s where i shine.”

4)      Exercise equipment looks just terrible, but I admit it can be useful to dry clothes.

5) We have some serious sources on our side. For example TIME Magazine with “The Myth About Exercise”, a series of doctors like Lawrence Wilson, experienced bloggers like Haven Kimmel, Frank Forencich and last but not least my grandma (sorry no link available).

6) It has not yet been demonstrated, but it seems likely that exercise is not good for our mental capability. To support this theory, some quotes from professional athletes:

“I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father.” Golfer Greg Norman

Shaquille O’Neal  on whether he had visited the Parthenon during his visit to Greece: “I can’t really remember the names of the clubs we went to.”

“My sister’s expecting a baby, and I don’t know if I’m going to be an uncle or an aunt.” Chuck Nevitt basketball player explaining to his coach why he appeared nervous at practice.

“He’s a guy who gets up at 6 o’clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.” Boxing trainer Lou Duva.

7)      Compulsive exercise addiction is a serious illness. BAM!

8a) The human couch warmer never thinks he is doing the most brilliant thing. People who exercise tend to feel superior and like to pity you. I just want to point out that the “One best way” school of thought has been outmoded by the “One best fit” one… in the 1960’s!

Cinema tedesco a Roma: da Marlene Dietrich a Romy Schneider

Dal 30 settembre al Goethe Institut di Roma (via Savoia,15) parte la rassegna “DIVE!” che presenta al pubblico italiano le grandi attrici del cinema tedesco partendo dalle icone del passato per arrivare alla nuova generazione.

Alcuni dei film sono difficilmente reperibili per altre vie, inoltre le proiezioni sono GRATUITE 🙂

Si consiglia di arrivare con un po’ di anticipo, perchè i posti dell’auditorium del Goethe sono liberi fino a esaurimento.

Il prossimo appuntamento è:

14 ottobre 2010 h20.45 : “Dishonored Regia di Josef von Sternberg  con Marlene Dietrich

Marlene interpreta una spia austriaca nella prima guerra mondiale, nel film considerato uno dei capolavori di Von Sternberg. In questo film Marlene è una diva seducente e ironica che riesce a prendere in giro come gli uomini fanno di questioni dopotutto irrilevanti una battaglia per cui vale la pena morire, mentre in finale la donna vuole proteggere i suoi affetti e combattere per amore. Una scena piena di stile è un ballo in maschera, spettacolare ed intrigante. A volte Marlene sembra calcare troppo la parte (abitudine tipica dei film muti), ma nel complesso il film è senz’altro un successo.

Marlene Dietrich ha anche interpretato canzoni da non perdere.

Forse la più conosciuta è “Lili Marleen“, ma quella che preferisco è “The laziest girl in town”
