Patchy light snow 30.9 | Low 23.4, High 31.0

This is just easier for me right now, since I’m already in Emacs.

I’ve used Photo Mechanic for years. It’s kind of expensive, but the last major (paid) update was in 2020 so the annual cost has been reasonable. I went to install it on the new Mini and learned that they’ve introduced a subscription option. The version I use is now $24.99/month. Nope. They do still offer a Perpetual license but it’s $399 (with updates for one year). I love PM but I don’t need it, so I’ll have to pass. I can still use my older version for now, but it’s hard to feel vested knowing that it’s a dead end.

All I want is to buy some software and pay $30 or whatever every year or so for upgrades.

I for one hate these new, trendy, non-paint paint colors. So many cars look like someone covered the primer in varnish and called it a day.
