Amazing image resizing



This image manipulation stuff looks amazing. The stuff gets better as it goes along.

The paper is available here.

SVG photos

This is a really nice demo of SVG in firefox browsers. Basically you can grab the corners of a photo and rotate and resize it. Better than my description ... honestly.

Seduction @ The Lido - Margate 1992



My mate Jon alerted me to this bit of video on youtube - old skool rave, just close to where I was brought up. Not that I was old enough to go to any of this stuff, but it is interesting to know it was so big. Now the clubs in Thanet are just meat shops like most towns. I do remember the posters being up everywhere though.

Post ADSL migration



Well it all went smoothly and speeds are just as high. Brilliant!

Xming - X server on windows

Xming Notes

Apparently this is a lot better than running Cygwin/X. There is an article about it on linux.com.

On a similar note, I have started using rdesktop through tsclient at work and I must say that Microsoft has finally done something right with their remote desktop protocol. It is much better than running X or VNC.

ADSL result pre-migration



If everything goes smoothly I should be changing broadband provider tomorrow. Here is a speed test result to check that I will get similar speeds. I am moving away from freedom2surf because they have been taken over by the apparently rubbish Tiscali. Here are the BT speedtest results:
Line rating 6000k
DSL connection rate: 448 kbps (Upstream) 7618 kbps (Downstream)
Actual IP throughput: 2837 kbps
