Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

The Gimp Triumph

[ #17233 ]

I made a transparent gif today. There was an old task to upload a bunch of images on one of our sites, but one of them did not have a transparent background. I opened up Gimp and quickly realized that I did not remember know how to do it. I searched the Web and figured out how and now we have a nice transparent logo for one of our clients. It's silly that I should make a big deal of that but I'm not much of a graphics guy and this little triumph made me proud.

  • Oh yeah, I find use of the Gimp to like that as well.

    So many options and menus and buttons and graphickey jargon that I'm quite tickeled at succeeding at even the most rudimentary accomplishments. I suppose it would help were I to have occasion to use it more than once every month or two.

    /me chuckles. Not complaining, mind you - am just not a Gimp power user.
