Default Yet another CIS refugee

Greetings, folks--

As my thread title indicates, my online life (or lack of same) started with Compuserve, sometime in the '80s. I know several of the DTP Forum people: Kathleen, Elyse, Ann (Filemaker guru!) from the old PubProd and Mac forums. Shane Stanley wrote me a great AppleScript to copy Excel spreadsheet data into an InDesign table (thanks for that, if you're still around here!). I know Robin Springall and DogmanDouglas from Snarkish.com. And I was pleasantly surprised to see Jon Woolf here, from the old CIS Science/Geology forum! Hello to all.

I'm an oil & gas geologist in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I have no honest claim to DTP experience, but I've been something of a graphic arts wannabe for years: I love looking at fonts, print layouts, etc. I've edited a club newsletter for about 17 years, and I'm currently doing the design and layout for a special publication (a 200-odd page book) that my club is producing.

I've been using Apple hardware since the Apple //e, and currently use a MacBook Pro for most of my work. I also have a Win XP laptop which is used strictly for industry-specific business apps, so my experience on that side is rudimentary at best. I use the Adobe CS apps for my "creative" work.
