3/7     Say I use http://mpix.com to print out my digital pictures. Say I have a
        really large picture, 3000x2000 and I print only a 4" print instead
        of poster size. How many DPIs will mpix's printer print? I'm trying
        to gauge the quality of their prints vs. my 600dpi printer before
        I decide to get anything from http://mpix.com. ok thx
        \_ yeah, it's much better to ask an unanswerable question on the MOTD
           rather than spend 29 cents to see for yourself.
        \_ We don't know what printer http://mpix.com uses.  Costco uses Noritsu
           QSS-3111-1.  Anyway, DPI is not the only factor to quality.
        \_ Why don't you contact them?. Ask "what PPI will you print".
           It should print at whatever size the PPI * number of pixels ends
           up being. I don't know anything about mpix but it's common sense.
        \_ For what it's worth, an amateur photographer I know (used to
           work on iPhoto) uses mpix and speaks highly of them.

4/04    Is there a good way to diff 2 files that consist of columns of
        floating point numbers, such that it only tells me if there's a
        difference if the numbers on a given line differ by at least a given
        ratio?  Say, 1%?
        \_ Use Excel.

12/18   Happy 25th birthday Perl, and FUCK YOU Larry Wall for fucking up
        the computer science formalism that sets back compilers development
        back for at least a decade:
        http://techcrunch.com/2012/12/18/print-happy-25th-birthday-perl
        \_ I tried to learn Perl but was scared away by it.  Maybe scripting
           lanauages have to be like that in order to work well?

11/7    If I don't need to print for a few months, do I need to keep adding
        new ink to inkjet printers to prevent them from drying and clogging
        heads? Or will it just magically work once I add in new ink
        in a few months?
        \_ The nozzles will clog. Print a test sheet every couple weeks.
           Or remove the cartridges and put cellophane tape over the nozzles,

8/28    Hi, anybody printed a photo image to a big plotter?  Something like
        36"x36"?  I'm wondering how many megapixels the image need to
        have in order for the print to "look good".  There is a rule of
        thumb?  Like 6 megapixel is good for X size print.  10 megapixel
        is good for Y size print.  Thanks.
        \_ You don't need that many more megapixels for much bigger prints,

8/6     mrauser, what ddya think of this:
        http://www.nplusonemag.com/node/678/print
        \_ Sorta tl;dr.  It seems pretty dense, so I'll read it eventually...
           just haven't really had the time. -mrauser
           \_ yep, it's dense but pretty good. - !OP
