From Economy to Economy plus on United flying back from Miami to London. A few inches extra of leg room was very much appreciated.

Air France sucks ass. You might as well go budget.

last time I was 'upgraded' by BlueOregon (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Jul 27, 2006 at 05:11:27 AM EST

I got a bit lucky -- 2x2 vs. 3x3, so even though I lost my aisle seat, I at least got a larger, comfier window seat. Other than that, anything but an aisle seat is pure torture, and I'm not even close to being the biggest or fattest slob on the plane.

And, ah, PSP 3.x ... I remember it fondly. I made sure to keep it around even after newer versions became available. Quick and dirty, indeed. Easy to use, quick to launch ... a few too many Windows-3.1-isms still in the code at that point, but it never caused a problem. Even ran it under Wine a few times.

PSP3 by ReallyEvilCanine (2.00 / 0) #3 Thu Jul 27, 2006 at 05:27:28 AM EST
Glad I never got rid of the install file. But there's a problem running it under Win2K and up: It requires " wow.exe" (space intentional), a very shaky and temperamental process which isn't directly accessible. If you're in a terminal services session and lose the connection, when you reconnect everything under the process is effectively dead. You can't cleanly shut down the processes (which have had spaces appended to their process thread names) which means you've lost your work.

Still, PSP3 is probably the best quick-and-dirty graphics app around for Windows. You just have to remember to save often.
