Around 2009 I started to play around with 3D Software other than Maya. I dropped out halfway through my Computer Animation degree, and I always found 3D Computer Graphics very useful because of the potential power you can use it: create anything you want. From hyper realistic films, to animated features.
I’ve been using Dreamweaver since 2002. I don’t remember exactly if they were still part of Macromedia back then, but Adobe has kept me interested since.
With the release of the Creative Cloud, it’s been a slow transition for both developers and users to get used to having our Operating Systems, Applications, and Browser, working perfect and in sync.
Dreamweaver CC started giving me some problems when I foolishly decided to let it sync my Site settings. That created a mess within my development environment, and I wasn’t a happy camper.
The following error was not caused by the syncing of Dreamweaver settings, but it was due to another program overwriting Dreamweaver’s document handling.
I started getting an error when I opened Dreamweaver CC / Dreamweaver CC 2014, and it said:
"No document types have been found in the Configuration/DocumentTypes/ folder.
The MMdocumenttypes.xml file may be missing or corrupt. The application will now exit"
To fix that in Windows 8/8.1 you can do the following
Make sure that Dreamweaver is not running.
C:\Program Files(x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CC 2014\configuration\DocumentTypes\
and copy the “MMDocumentTypes.xml” file.
and paste it in this folder:
C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe Dreamweaver CC\en_US\Configuration\DocumentTypes
which will overwrite the file causing the issue.
This basically copies the original MMDocumentTypes.xml Dreamweaver’s install has, instead of using the one being copied by Windows’ roaming profile.
No more errors = PROFIT.
In alchemy, nigredo, or blackness, means putrefaction or decomposition. The alchemists believed that as a first step in the pathway to the philosopher’s stone all alchemical ingredients had to be cleansed and cooked extensively to a uniform black matter.
In analytical psychology, the term became a metaphor ‘for the dark night of the soul, when an individual confronts the shadow within’.
“Nigredo Threshold” is the first part of the”Alchemy” series. At the beginning of 2013, I started reading about alchemy. To me alchemy had always been this obscure, silly pseudo-science that used rudimentary chemistry with the hopes of achieving its main goal: turning anything into gold. I was wrong.
My assumption wasn’t completely in error though. As the years have passed, my living experience and perspective has gradually broken out from the confines of a materialistic, “left-brained” mode thinking: that we are all random by-products of the chaotic universe. And this constant re-thinking, searching, and skepticism of absolutes, is what led me to alchemy.
Alchemy’s purpose remains the same: to turn “something” into gold. And that something, is YOU.
