Should I make that leap?

Yeah, here we go! :bademoticon: 

Since things are at a stand still on my comics because of my scanner situation :sad: , (and my kids being out of freaking school all summer!!Freak Out ) I've been thinking about moving my focus back onto other unfinished projects. (once summer is over that is ..... :sigh: )

Currently I have a slew of Flash Projects that have been started AGES ago. Spaz attack :updated: Some were started before I went to college on the computer of a friend who owned flash and some were started while in college using the program on the school's computers.

The unfinished projects cannot be finished because...

A. I have no copy of Adobe Flash to work on them and have no access to my college where I could work on them on the school's computers. (As Alumni I could do that ... but we moved!!)

B. The Flash Alternative programs that are free cannot open the FLA files associated with Adobe Flash. I would have to start all those projects over again from scratch. (Or, port all the graphics somehow...)

So ... I am left with somewhat of a conundrum.

Adobe has made their programs .... somewhat .... more affordable to use in the form of subscription use.

I could subscribe to Adobe Flash professional for $19.99 a month but I would have to sign a one year contract.... Germania emote 

I would have to pay 50% of the unused months of the contract at any time should I break contract with them before the year is up.

With so many unfinished projects laying on my external hard drive (and a lot more stuck in my head) :chainsaw: would it be worth it to make that leap? Or should I just scrap all those games/animations and focus on my comics?

:floating:  Thoughts? :devil

Nope, and I've used all my 30 day trial time on my laptop and desktop. XD

So, a full year contract and $19.99 a month isn't too much?

ehhhhh yea....doesnt sound TOO bad...............***whistling***  i mean......doesnt hurt to have the full thing, have to save a lil extra for that tho.  but if u can do the 20 dollars a month thing then go for it

Yeah. I'm likely to do the $20 a month deal. It'll be a few months before I do it though. As, I plan on waiting for my kids to get back in school before I do.
