Hey, underwhelm. Hey, catechism. Hey, leadsynth and cerulicante. Ever wonder about those folks whose names are on the splash screen when you fire up Photoshop? Sure you do. You know you do. Especially if they're Seetharaman Narayanan.
It has been said that Seetharaman Narayanan has evolved to the point where he is more Lens Flare than man. He can bevel and emboss through the power of sheer thought. I heard one time he was walking down the street and some gang tried to mug him and he Unsharp Masked his hand and karate chopped one of the thugs in half, and then one of the other thugs attacked him and he Pinched that guy's head so hard it exploded and then after he Plastic Wrapped the rest of the thugs he disappeared in a burst of Difference Clouds.
The rest of the thread's funny in places, but that's pretty much the payoff right there. And the picture. Oh, man.
Yeah, I found that too. Innit great?
Seetharaman Narayanan. It’s hard to look away. Sure, other people worked on Photoshop. But nobody else has a name like Seetharaman Narayanan.
You know what's strange? Just the other day when Photoshop was loading I stared at Seetharaman Narayanan's name and thought, "I wonder who that is?" No joke!
That thread is hilarious. And I enjoyed the interview with him as well.
I think a good caption for that picture would be "I hold the Ring Narya! You can not pass!" or words to that effect.
Whew! I am running out of material here. Can I keep up with your breakneck posting speed?
Also, I would like to point out that I don't know about this "photoshop". If a piece of software isn't in the apt-cache, it doens't exist!
Yep, I'm an OS traitor. The final nail in the coffin was when my roommate's computer needed a new power supply and we raided my Gentoo box for one. I thought she'd only keep it for a few days, but she's had it for a couple of months now, which means I don't have a Linux machine. I haven't missed it at all.
What do you normally use?
I mean, we can find you a Linux computer for 12 dollars!
My PowerBook. I don't know how I lived without it.
You know, I have started walking with a cane, and I think it gives extra cantankerousness to my "Matthew Harris anti-laptop lecture"
You guys really think that's a Photoshop?
You should see how much stuff Nico Mak has in his closets...
Hey, I have a brilliant idea! At Sound Advice we're repurposing our 4-year-old G4 tower as a print server and Photoshop machine (since we're doing a lot of graphics in-house now). We should name the computer "Seetharaman"!
I am sure that joke will continue to be funny after the 25th time you have said "ping seetharaman" and then had to spell it out...
Or else I am just bitter because Dave wouldn't name our backup server "formenos"
