What to do if Filezilla crashes and you need to download an older version.

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

Filiezilla is a fantastic FTP program. I have been using it for years. My thanks goes out to the developer(s) for such a great product. Unfortunately it occasionally happens that bugs aren’t apparent until after an update is released. This might mean that until a more stable version replaces it, you might have to find an older version if the one you just installed crashes.

Ok. You just downloaded filezilla and it now crashes whenever you make a file transfer (or something like that) right? Today I downloaded the latest Mac OS X version (FileZilla Client 3.9) and I it is constantly crashing (freezing) on OS X 10.9.4. I have to force quit it. Going to the filezilla website wasn’t immediately fruitful either, I really had to dig to fin the download pager for older versions of fileziller.

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

If you have installed a Gavick pro Joomla template, you may not have any use for the login button which usually appears at the top right of the template, but the button stands out and could be useful for other things.

How do you export guides from Illustrator to Photoshop.

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

 So, you set up an amazing image in Adobe illustrator and carefully and exactly laid out some guides... Perhaps your plan was to create slices from those guides, until you found that the “create slices from guides” option in Adobe Illustrator sucks balls. Or maybe you are making a web graphic and want to set up slices in Photoshop because you want exact pixel control where the image will be sliced.

Regardless the reason, you simply want to copy the guides from illustrator and paste them into Photoshop, or export/import them, whatever, you want to move Adobe illustrator guides to Adobe Photoshop.

It turns out not all the Module styles for the Image Show GK4 are responsive. What does this mean? It means that unless your settings are correct, the images shown in the Gavick Pro Image Show (GK4) will not scale with the rest of the website. Add a comment

New alternative to dropbox might just be my new favourite cloud file service.

Written by Andrew Brett Watson.

I was looking for alternative to dropbox simply to have another option that I could install along with dropbox to share different files. Yes I know about Box, Google drive, One Drive (formerly Sky Drive) and the myriad of other alternatives, but none of them tickled my fancy. Then I discovered “Copy”.
