I'd like to preface this diatribe by saying I hold UPS in high regard as far as efficiency and their system. That said, I was disappointed today.
I bought a $999 item on eBay. The seller shipped it UPS Ground with a scheduled delivery of today **Signature Required**. I was home all day waiting pa...

For the game last night, I had the good fortune of being on the receiving end of 2 free tickets to [i]"The Bunker Club"[/i] at the Dome. I was shocked to see the face value of $305 each.

| Tech Board|| Are domain names still worth something? - tigerpawl on 10/25/14 at 8:44 am|
It would seem logical with the advent of Google (and intuitive search methods) that domain names are less important today. Just how much I'm not sure. For example, "money.com" or "business.com" or "computers.com" - you get the idea. My question is this: If you're sitting on a domain name that you th...

OK - here's my best guess (limited by my experience with video in PS). My hunch is you're processing layers you don't need, like all the layers except the top layer (Video Group 3).

I'm seeing noticeable aliasing (jaggies) when my Vimeo videos are played in Google Chrome but it goes away when played in Internet Explorer and Firefox. Chatter on the web suggests it's limited to certain types of video cards. Vimeo puts the blame squarely on Chrome. However, I've played other video...
