5/16    Can anyone tell me what Greece is hoping for by rejecting austerity?
        From here it seems like the austerity is a pretty generous attempt
        to keep Greece from imploding entirely.   Are they hoping the
        Germans will put them on eternal state welfare, or what?
        Also, why would an outright default mean they must leave the Euro?
        Is it just that they won't be able to pay basic gvmt services

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,

        poster like that for a few years now; it looks like a blurry

        find such a poster, or a similar one, or even what the name of
        such a photo/poster might be? Thanks in advance.

04/02   Anybody know of a program that can generate a big picture collage from
        a lot of smaller pictures?   I'm not looking for a regular photo
        collage maker that just puts the pictures in tiles one after another.
        The big picture being generated can be something like a company
        logo and the small pictures can be company employees photos.  I've
        seen those in annual reports but I don't know how they're generated.

The Daily Caller 7 hours ago A student at Texas Tech University appears to be the first American to have his driver's license photo taken -- and to successfully obtain a driver's license -- while wearing a pasta strainer on his head. Castillo told DMV officials that the silver, metal pasta strainer is a religious symbol for him, and they bought it. "Once she allowed me to put the pasta strainer on my head, I took the biggest, cheesiest smile I probably ever took," he reminisced to the Lubbock CBS affiliate. Its proponents seek to illustrate their belief that government should avoid promoting any single religion. A guy named Bobby Henderson concocted it (along with the Spaghetti Monster, the belief that pirates are gods and much else) while he was fighting against the inclusion of intelligent design in Kansas public schools. "It was created as a form of satire, but it shouldn't be taken in a sense that discriminates or disassociates other religions, and it should be looked at as a political symbol for the separation between church and state," Castillo explained. As KLBK notes, Castillo isn't the first person in the United States to try such antics. "I've heard of the stories happening in New Jersey, you know, the guy getting arrested for attempting to do the same thing that I was doing, so when I walked in there I had to mentally prepare myself to probably gather bond or something to get out of jail," he told the CBS affiliate. The Texas Tech student added that he was surprised that he succeeded in Lubbock because of its reputation as a bastion for conservatism. Castillo also expressed his hope that he isn't seen as "poking fun at religious head-wear in other peoples' faiths." Instead, he said, he hopes his action "opens the doors for new-age religion" and "celebrates in a sense that we are a melting pot of a country." It's not clear if Castillo will actually be able to keep and use a driver's license in which he wears a pasta strainer on his head. On the one hand, KLBK notes that Castillo had wrangled for a month with the Texas Department of Public Safety (which handles driver's licenses) before he actually showed up for his photo wearing a colander. On the other hand, the station indicated that the Department's attorneys are assessing the legality of Castillo's license and will contact him "to rectify the situation." According to a report compiled by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Texas law prohibits "obvious disguises for the purpose of concealing identity or headwear that is not for religious purposes" in driver's license photographs.
