10/8    I have a couple png images (blue on a white background) for which I'd
        like to have a transparent background (instead of white).  Is there an
        easy (ie, not erasing each pixel) way in gimp2 to do this?  The whole
        image is just one layer.  Thanks.
        \_ Select all of one color (blue).  Copy. Open new document with
           background specified as transparent. Paste. Save. All right, so this
           is really Photoshop specific, but surely there are analogues in
           Gimp 2?

10/6    lsmod lists the module being used and then has a "used by" column
        where it says how many other mods use it and (usually) what those are.
        Sometime it only says a number (say 1) without any info about what
        that one thing is.  Is there anyway to find out what it is?
        \_ No, there is no mechanism I know of (for 2.2/2.4).  When you
           see the name of the dependent modules, this is based on linking,
           but anything can come in an bump the reference count without
           causing this annotation.  It may also not be a module, but a
           process, for instance a process has a device open on the SCSI card
           to which the driver is attached.

10/5    My dad has a lot of LPs and an analog turntable from the old days.
        Recently he bought a home theatre system that doesn't have analog
        input.  Is there something he can use to connect the turntable to the
        home theatre?  Some kind of A to D converter, I suppose.  Thanks.
        \_ There's NO analog input?  Not even for say a microphone?
        \_ Let me get this right. You have a system that doesn't have a single
           RCA-jack input?
        \_ Is Apple making stereos now?
        \_ what's the brand and model of the new system?
        \_ "No analog input" -- This seems really unlikely, it's more likely
        that there is no phono input, and you get get a phono preamp that
        will raise the signal to a line-level signal.
        \_ after 10 years there will only be 802 and bluetooth as interfaces
          \_ after 10 years if the RIAA has its way there will only be speakers
             as outputs and a credit card slot as input.

           \_ Familiarity with paolo and deduction.  Your privacy methods
              are powerless before the might of social engineering.

           inhale much worse just walking outside.  Worried about your ass?

              finished.  Cuts down on the stink but some chance of foul

9/5     When I first saw Nausica of the Valley of Wind, Princess Mononoke,
        and Spirited Away, I thought they sucked. But yesterday I had 6 beers
        and watched all three and thought they're the best. So I guess
        Miyazaki's films are like baseball-- you gotta have a few beers before
        you appreciate it.
