Mastering Photoshop CS2

I’ll be attending the “Mastering Photoshop CS2” seminar in Atlanta on August 21st. It looks to be a pretty cool mix of classes.

Wherefor art thou, Basecamp?

UPDATE: It appears the problem has been resolved. Though I am still curious to know what happened… Is it just me, or is Basecamp (and all of 37Signals’ websites) down now?
