Pretty pictures pimped by PostScript

[ #29380 ]
Dear Log,

Oooh! Aaah! Woooo! Wheee! Wooow!

That's all PostScript manually written by this guy and this guy. Superstars! And the code is so concise!

Like this is just:
297 421 translate
0 .1 400 {
  dup dup sqrt 4 div 0 360 arc fill
  137.50775 rotate
} for
showpage

PostScript is 100% japh; and on a bad day, it's about as maintainable as one too. But preeetty.

But I have a plan...

  • Thanks for post; loved it. And i did go "Oooh! Aaah! Woooo! Wheee! Wooow!". :D

    OTOH, you have caused me to add another language to learn (in addition to Ruby, TeX, and Lisp).

    PS: I wanted to thank you, thus made myself an account here.
