m$word-pdf, maestro and australia day

[ #17027 ]

doc->pdf cont.

looks like I have found a possible quicker path to get word docs to pdf. (wonder if it can handle complex tables and embedded images?).

update:
matts (axkit) just left a message on my use.perl journal reporting that he recommends using HTMLDOC for converting html to pdf. It also has an Axkit plugin. I checked out the man and faq. GNU licensing, perl bindings and end user support available.

maestro

downloading maestro (38.5Mb) to check out mars rover data. reminds me of the 3d pathfinder back in 97. posted detailed comparison of rover ground images of opportunity and spirit.

australia day

25 Jan. all I can say is crack a tube! (Sound of cans opening) and Australia, Australia, Australia, Australia, we love you amen!.

philosophers song - monty pythons flying circus - Episode 22
Immanuel Kant was a real piss-ant who was very rarely stable.
Heideggar, Heideggar was a boozy beggar who could think you under the table.
David Hume could out-consume Wilhelm Freidrich Hegel.
And Whittgenstein was a beery swine who was just as sloshed as Schlegel.
There's nothing Nieizsche couldn't teach 'ya 'bout the raising of the wrist.
Socrates, himself, was permanently pissed.
John Stewart Mill, of his own free will, after half a pint of shanty was particularly ill.
Plato, they say, could stick it away, half a crate of whiskey every day!
Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle,
And Hobbes was fond of his Dram.
And Rene Descartes was a drunken fart:
"I drink, therefore I am."
Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed;
A lovely little thinker, but a bugger when he's pissed.
