… is apparently going to be 25 degrees Celsius and none too rainy.

I’m about to take off for a few weeks to visit my mother. It’s the first time I’ve ever been to Puerto Rico when it’s not Christmas; I’ve been apprehensive about how hot it’s going to be, and about how few pairs of shorts I have in my possession.

I have a few things I wanted to mention before I leave. The first is Female Body Parts. Now, I know that sounds morbid, but it’s a photo book of close-up images of various parts of the female anatomy. There’s lots of great reference of eyes, mouths, tongues, noses, and things that are not the face. I bought it while I was in Brooklyn earlier this month visiting Luckbat. It came with a CD, which I figured would have 1K-ish resolution images on it. Imagine my surprise when I found every image on the disc to be over 4Kx3K! At the $30 price tag it currently has on Amazon, that book is a steal.

The other thing I wanted to mention is Messiah 5. If you’re like me, you weren’t able to get it loaded and running after the install. I finally figured it out today and I wanted to post about it. Here’re the steps to getting it working. Keep in mind I’d already gotten one USB stick licensed before I ran through these steps.

1) Run the remove demo script.
2) Run the uninstaller script.
3) Unplug all USB devices.
4) Re-copy Messiah from the original download.
5) Run it. Allow it to get to the licensing screen.
6) QUIT out of the licensing screen by hitting the red X on the window, and allow the program to fully exit.

Now if you plug in your USB stick and run Messiah, it loads fine.

It seems that if you’ve got a license file in there on the initial install, for some odd reason the Crossover Chromium folder doesn’t get created in your ~/Library/Application Support/ folder, which (I believe) is what’s screwing things up.

Either way, it’s loaded for me. I don’t know anything about the program yet but at least I can experiment now.

Wish me luck on the flight. And wish my mother luck!
