In Topic: MSI Wind - Best solution for osx86 on a sub-notebook?

21 May 2008 - 04:54 PM

There's some MoBo's coming out for the platform too, at around $100:

Pretty similar specs, might be worth checking out as well

This one's also a mini-ITX, so does anybody want to make a Hack Mini?

Yeah, even though I really hate it, Ubuntu would work a little better for that...

I like having to tweak all my config files by hand in Slackware. You learn so much more about the system that way.

Slackware all the way! I'm currently running it on my desktop, an old Athlon 750MHz, with pretty good performance (though more RAM would definitely help).

I started with ZipSlack 7 or 8 years ago (console only ;-) on a 486 and added X and GIMP to it, then used RedHat 7.1 for several years.

Now I'm home again!

In Topic: Panaramic Shots?

28 November 2007 - 06:23 PM

I have done several myself. I usually use Hugin (unfortunately the Mac port is slightly behind at this time), manually picking alignment points, then using Photoshop to blend the layers together and fix any issues.So far the largest I have done is 32MP, but I would like to find a good scene to really have some fun with!Here is one that I did this way this summer. It's a view from a peak at Philmont Scout Ranch. I wish that there had been more time on that trip to take pictures, but I have what I have.The full-size image is about 15MP.

In Topic: 1.8 or 2.2 gamma?

03 November 2007 - 08:41 PM

Since I do some basic graphic/web design across both PC and Mac, I have done basic visual calibration on all my displays for a gamma of 2.2 and whitepoint of 6500K. (I'll get a real colorimeter one of these days...)

Now I am quite annoyed when I see a monitor with messed-up gamma or the vile 9300K white point.
