Couldn’t Resist

I’ve stayed away from the political freak show for months now, but I couldn’t pass this one up! This photo appeared in my Facebook timeline. Hat tip to Rex.

Piccadilly Cafeteria Now Gone

It was only a matter of time. I have eaten at this Piccadilly Cafeteria literally hundreds of times over the years. Back in the day this place was crazy busy with hungry patrons. Another Piccadilly, in midtown, was also jammed with business. The food was good. The prices were reasonable.

Pages 5.6.1 lacks this fundamental, basic feature. Pages technical support didn’t even know this. What??!! Seriously??!! The feature is available in Pages ’09. Their recommended solution: export the document out of Pages 5.6.1 in the old version’s format and number the pages and print them in that version.
