6/8     Anyone know where I can find old questions to previous ACM
1998/6/8-11 [Computer/SW/WWW/Browsers, Computer/SW/Graphics] UID:14183 Activity:nil
6/6     GIMP 1.0 is out, see -- one of many nice
        projects to originate at Cal, and damn fine software for graphics
        on Unix.
                \_ what do you think this is? ?
        \_ XCF RULES!!
                \_ One decent project a decade and you get excited?
                        (well, maybe two if you count PRCS, but that's
                         more a hilfingr hack than a XCF project)
                \_ Netrek? Yarn?
        \_ Can I read my mail from it? RMS told me software can't possibly
           be useful unless it has a mail reader.
           \_ So write the plug-in.
                \_ Just use exmh with the tcl plugin

                \_ Aleph-1.
                        \_ Aleph-by-induction.

6/8  How about mixing faces (*.xbm) pictures with the Soda member listing
     on our web page?
        \_ i don't like the idea.  it would destroy the simple aesthetics
           of the current  there is
           already  i don't see many
           new users flocking to adopt xbm faces, either.
           --jwang, whose cron job produces the user list.
          \_ you damn naxi. How about a new format where, once user places
             ANY picture in the ~<user>/public_html/face.jpg, the faces page
             will look for it?
1998/6/8 [Computer/SW/Languages/Perl] UID:14186 Activity:nil
