WHAT HAVE CREEPY WORLDS #130 AND JERRY MOUSE GOT IN COMMON?
Got myself a new laptop recently as my old one was Windows Vista and only one browser still fully worked with it. However, trying to get used to my new one is a bit of a hassle as there are some things on my old one that I can't transfer - such as Picasa 3. This was discontinued a few years ago, but I could still access it on my previous computer, though now there's no way to download it on my new one today.
This means that I can't do the same 'restoration' work to images that I once used to, which annoys the hell out of me. Does anyone know if there's a direct equivalent of Picasa that does the exact same things in the exact same way? Or, even better, can anyone tell me whether it's possible to transfer Picasa from one computer to the other? Any help would be much appreciated.
But I digress. Just bought the above comic yesterday via ebay, which was one I originally had back in either 1972 or '73. The above image isn't of the actual one I purchased, but an earlier one from the Internet that I used in a previous post. The seller's photos weren't of a good enough quality for me to use, so you'll just have to settle for this one. I obtained my original copy from a newsagent's in another neighbourhood, at the same time as I bought a Marx Toys wind-up of Jerry mouse (of Tom & Jerry fame).
I replaced Jerry a couple of years back (along with Tom, who I never had originally), so with my acquisition of Creepy Worlds #130 (still to arrive), that's the two main items I bought on that particular day in the '70s back under my ownership. If you'd like to read about it, click here and you'll be magically transported straight to my reminiscences of that long-ago event.
