  1. I do freelance Web Design / Development. I mostly use Inkscape for design, and GIMP for post processing.
  2. I'm not arguing with anyone, but I read the mailing lists. People point out problems that no one noticed before, all the time. The back-end of GIMP (GEGL) has support for 32 bits per channel, and there is a patch in the works to support white balance on high bit depth images. Its a matter of not having enough developers. I use GIMP professionally, it can produce professional results. I hope people would spend their time constructively, and make GIMP better instead of bashing it constantly.
  3. First of all GIMP is an open source project. If you don't like it -- if you find it frustrating to use, let developers know. They're actively trying to make it a better program. Second, you might want to check out Inkscape, Or if you want to get your web 2.0 on, try Pixlr.
  4. I do a bit of Urban Exploration. So, having rope and other tools is helpful in certain situations. The spray paint is for the stencils, in case I need to create "promotional materials" while I'm out.
  5. It usually changes depending where I'm going, but the staples are: Macbook Canon Rebel XT iPod touch rope leather work gloves small bolt cutters spray paint stencils
  6. Podcasts are RSS feeds. Just need to find the url in itunes. This might help
  7. I think you mean Audacious, Audacity is the audio editor. I prefer Banshee for music and VLC for video. XMMS is available, you need to add the Universe repos (under software sources) then "sudo apt-get install xmms2".
  8. http://www.deviantart.com http://www.alistapart.com http://www.456bereastreet.com http://www.csszengarden.com/ and for general design: http://thingstolookat.blogspot.com/
  9. First things first anti-virus and firewall software are already useless. Software that protects against other software doesn't work. Next, just because the source is released doesn't mean its less secure. Open Source software tends to be more secure. Security through obscurity is no security at all.
  10. The way most websites are written is that only a unique ID is stored in the cookie, and all data regarding the session is stored on the server. Depending how that ID is generated it could lead to session hijacking. PHP's default session ID are usually prone to hijacking because it doesn't automatically check the ID for validity. So, it really depends on how the site was written.
  11. uxtheme multi-patcher for windows. Compiz-Fusion for linux, but if your using Ubuntu install "compizconfig-settings-manager" and "emerald" for full control.
  12. I was working on this for the evil server logo contest, but it would also make a great t-shirt. :D
  13. So, I've been working on the concept of JavaScript allowing "non-traditional" variable names. I wrote about it in my blog yesterday, and I was wondering if you guys/gals could help me compile a list of browsers that support it. So far I've tried it in Opera and Firefox, which neither fully support them. The test script is here. If you could, post the last three lines along with the Browser, Version, and OS. Also, (so this isn't just big fat plug for my blog) what could be done with non-traditional variables? Well, besides making the ugliest code ever. :P EDIT: I should probably warn you that the script takes a long time to execute. It tests almost 14,000 characters. UPDATE: I got my VM up and running again, so I've tested Firefox, Opera, Chrome and IE under windows.
  14. unfortunately php isn't very good with utf-8 (or utf-16, utf-24, or utf-32 for that matter ;)) some functions are unicode aware but not all. this page seems to be a good resource on how to make php and mysql not puke when they encounter multi-byte characters.
  15. Thats odd, I've never seen that happen. It appears that the bar is collapsing, which happens when an element is empty or the contents has taken out of the document flow by using "position: absolute". The div's could be causing firefox to render in quirks mode, which is well... quirky. And when you "saved the source" was it the just the html or the css too?
