    To sign up, please choose the appropriate option in the poll above. You can vote for both days if both days work for you. I'll do the course if I can get three signups for next week.

    Um, I can't acquire Fractal Mapper usefully, because Mac. Should I claim to have done so anyway?

    You should vote "not in this class, but in future classes", since the first class will mostly be about Fractal Mapper and the very basics of Photoshop, and it won't produce anything too different from what you've already shown me.

    I can't obtain a copy of Fractal Mapper because their website keeps crapping out.

    You can usually get a free version of FractalMapper from http://www.nbos.com/download/download-trial.htm#FM, but as CJ mentioned it's down right now - it was up yesterday, so hopefully they'll fix it soon. Photoshop you'd have to torrent or buy.

    Fractal Mapper Trial is available for download at http://www.nbos.com/nox/index.php?action=1001&id=144 again.

    Don't you guys have emulators or anything?

    Other: I'll acquire the software somehow or other, and could do either in theory, but wednesday would be a little better.

    I might be able to run this on my laptop - but using the touchpad is a ***** to draw anything with.

    Mouse precision won't be necessary if you have Fractal Mapper since that does most of the actual drawing for you.

    Or I might just skip Fractal Mapper since it seems to be causing a lot of trouble and let people draw their own coastlines. Tell you what. If you're at all interested, show up Wednesday whether you've got Fractal Mapper or not, and we'll talk, and we'll decide what to do from there.

    Any objections to Wednesday, then?

    Wait, no, I'm wrong, Wednesday does *not* work for me unless the class is going to be less than an hour long, I have a meetup at 7:00pm my time (Eastern). Tuesday works, my appointment then is earlier in the day.

    Well, how bout Thursday? Otherwise I'm inclined to do a Fractal Mapper class Wednesday since Alicorn doesn't want that one anyway, and then we'll plan where to go from there.
