4.5 year-old machine, win98... rebuilt twice (on 2 year 
anniversaries), not because it needed it, but because it ensures i'm 
maximizing my system... hasn't been rebooted in 2 months, and 
that was only cuz i turned it off to go to SXSW... otherwise, 6 
month intervals...

that being said, this post is *wildly* off-topic...

which means i need to include a <tip>... and so do the rest of you...

<tip type="photoshop">
Remember that you can ctrl-click a layer in Photoshop to select all 
non-transparent pixels.  This is handy to find stray pixels you may 
have missed while erasing parts of an image.  To see them easily, 
add a heavy shadow from the layer effects menu, and see if any 
shadows pop-up where you thought it was transparent.
