>>but I am developing a thing about blues in CMYK, the lack of nice ones, is
it real, or is it me??<<

There are MANY colors that connot be effectively reproduced by using the
CYMK printing process. This problem is compounded by the inclusion of
humans. Skin tone is a devil to reproduce (all those green and red casts).
There are many blues that can be printed very nicely, just scope out the
local magazine stand to see what can be done with CYMK. What family of blue
are you experimenting with?

Miles said it right. Right now I'm feeling a kinda blue after using a
utility that rebuilds the MAC desktop database. Unknown to me (it never
mentions it in the read-me), it writes an undo file named after the drive
in question and sticks it on the boot drive. Coincidentally, I had a folder
in there by that name already. Can you say o_v_e_r_w_r_i_t_e ?. <poof!> Bye
bye data. All 300 megs of it.
