I must remember that losing my photoshop, dreamweaver, flatbed scanner, digital camera adapter and color printer was not an act of hostility, and regaining them is not a triumph over darkness, because IT is not out to get me, and people looking at me funny and asking me WHY I need a nearly complete graphics setup is corporate policy, and not a formal declaration of war...

Without the infamous Photoshop + Illustrator + Quark combo they've no right to question your warez. Viva la revolución. :)

Have to learn Quark. Never really had the occasion to, it looks horribly easy, but there's a few minor stumbling blocks.

You never used Quark before? So what did you use- if you don't mind me asking? InDesign or Pagemaker?

I don't have that many occasions for desktop publishing. Mostly I just molest MSWord into doing what I want it to. I miss Pagemaker, though--I've heard they've done neat things to it recently.

What you need
Just remind them that in order to create projects that aid in the smooth flow of labour, such as your container reference database, you need to be able to accurately visually depict your subjects. You would reallyhate for *them* to be the ones to getin the way of streamlining the work of others. Finish up with 'it will make us more competative'. Either you will sound sufficiently manegerial and they will let you have it for that reason, or they will get the Dilbert reference and hopefully appreciate your sense of humour and off-handed jab at management.

That is all.
