Apollo Extensions for Flexbuilder 2.0.1 won't Install/Run

After painstakingly downloading the new Apollo runtime and Apollo extensions for Flex Builder from Adobe Labs, I now have to deal with errors nobody at the Apollo forums seems to have any clue about. (Except another few 10s of developers who have the same problems).

I am running WinXP Pro SP2. During the Flex extensions install, I get to select the location of the Flex Builder folder and then I get an Eclipse Folder Error as shown below:


And I do not have Eclipse installed on this computer. I know Flex is built on Eclipse, but common, Adobe should be able to do better - I've been waiting for Apollo for too long.

The when I start Flex Builder, Apollo is present but still won't run.

I'm still watching the forums hoping somebody will answer this one.

Adobe.com is just Unacceptably TOO SLOW

As a matter of fact, this site doesn't even load.

Today I received an email from adobe to download the alpha release for the highly anticipated Apollo SDK for building desktop apps that will run on Windows & Mac. But unfortunaly for the last 10 minutes, the site still hasn't loaded.
Adobe.com is notoriously slow especially when compared to other tech company sites such as Yahoo.com and Microsoft.com.

Adobe, I have 2 questions.
1. Why should I even bother about your software when your site would load?
2. Is your site running on ColdFusion?
3. Add I hear you want to put Photoshop on the web, good luck.

Yande's Home Coming

Yande and mother (Philo) finally came home on Thursday (3/15/2007). I will be putting up hist first home pictures later.
Apart from the Wheel Chair incident I still give Prince George's Hospital Center a solid “A” for their service. PG Hospital Center currently is run by Dimensions Healthcare System and I salute them for the excellent experience we had with their services. KUTGW.
