Neither do I. Graphics Image Modification Program, aka gimp, is just
fine. At 86, theres a bit of a hitch in my gitalong too, in fact I'm up
in the middle of the night working some Theraworx into a leg cramp. I'm
also a 30 year DM-II, so I'm obviously thin skinned and covered in
bruises because I am still active, but not thin enough the name bothers
me. To anyone who is bothered, grow some skin.
