Try combining poor memory, problems concentrating on anything (due to angst disorders) and OCD tendencies. What do you get? Oh, yes, it is me. So, reading anything, especially technical stuff takes... forever. I really hate it. And that's why it takes forever and you've seen nothing from me since... Meeeh. (Also, the laptop overheats really quickly, so opening and running Photoshop doesn't seem attractive at all.)
