I couldn't help but think that video was you.





Was it you?
Nah it isn't me. I would love to do those kinds of videos myself though, the ones you find on SB Nation but instead of US sports, Aussie Rules. SB Nation have a series called 'Rewind' where they pick out an iconic moment in the sport, and talk about the players and events which culminated into that moment. Previously I wasn't as sure about the audience for that kind of thing but given the guy has a pretty decent viewer base it might be something to look into.

It's there. Rule 5.5.3(c).


Love SB Nation

I nearly lost my mind when I saw that in my subscription feed. Was surreal seeing them do a vid about a sport I knew everything about.
It's really good to see an American channel take Aussie Rules seriously, and make it feel like one of their own.
I have seen a lot of Top 10 Highlights videos that only keep themselves the Big 4 sports.

can someone tell me whats going on at the left of screen. How theirs an open bit under the stands, im almost certain thats not how the G looks now
I'm not really sure what it exactly is, but I'd say that it was something done in the redevelopment of the stand for the 06 commonwealth games that they did away with following that to pack in more seats?

This.


The MCG hosted the athletics during the Comm games, which meant a full sized aths track needed to be installed. Unfortunately, an aths track isn’t just the 400m oval shape, it also includes a tangent for the 100m.
Therefore the extra space was needed during that time.

Bit of a technical question, but recently I've upgraded my computer and my photoshop from 2018 to 2020 as well. When I go open my files that I've been working on my old laptop on my new computer, they seem to corrupt every time I try and save them? has anyone else had similar issues with ps 2020 and knows a workaround? Every time I start working on a project I seem to forget this and it just results in me losing all my work before I have to boot up 2019 and do the whole thing again.

Recently ran in to the issue this year with editing my VCE media film on Premiere Pro 2017 at home, then trying to transfer it to 2019 at school. Not sure how to fix that in particular, but have you checked when you 'save as' if there's some sort of compatability file type option?

I've got 'maximum compatibility' checked when I save, but it is not like I'm constantly switching it back and forth between computers and different versions of photoshop where it would be understandable to run into errors. Done a bit of searching online and seems to be something to do with the new Ps version, the latest version of mac os and .psb files. Think I'll just switch back to 2019 where I'm not getting any issues.

As long as we're discussing tech issues, does anyone happen to know why some titles on websties appear like this to me?

The cars should say the chassis number and a short description, instead they're coming up as a random set of letters, numbers and symbols. This is the website if anyone wants to see if it happens on their browser as well: http://www.v8sleuth.com.au/

Does anyone around here use Affinity Photo? I'm looking for a Photoshop alternative now that I no longer have free Ps through school and am not keen to pay the Creative Cloud subscription. The compatibility with Psd files and the one-time payment is quite appealing, and it seems fairly similar to photoshop, so I'm just wondering if anyone has had any experience with it and would recommend it.
