What version of Adobe AIR runtime is installed?

To find out which version of the Adobe Air run time you have install is easy to find. I am using Mac OS X (Snow Leopard) so your path on another operating system might be a little different.

Open the the file /Library/Frameworks/Adobe AIR.framework/Versions/1.0/Resources/Info.plist in your favorite XML editor, and locate the <key>CFBundleVersion</key> entry (line 19).

The corresponding string below this entry (line 20) represents the version of Air, for your system. <string>2.0.2.12610</string>

Therefore on my Mac I am running Adobe Air version 2.0.2.12610

I shaved my head

I have noticed over the last month that my hair was been falling out very quickly, and when I comb it I noticed more hair on the comb than one my head! Also, I noticed that in my bed it looked like I was shedding.
