  1. Yeah it is, and was error free at anything but full zoom. Edit: It seems that it's mostly that image (I just loaded a 2000*10000 image and it did what it was supposed to by not letting me zoom in more than 328%), which makes me feel rather silly for posting this. Sorry Rick, obviously feel free to lock.
  2. Is there anything I can send you to help you figure out what went wrong so it won't go wrong for others? I can live with the errors at this point, but I'd like to see it get fixed in the next version.
  3. Hello, I use Paint.NET 3.5.8 on Windows 7 Pro x64, with everything fully updated. After installing AutoCAD 2012 Electrical (Student), there were several glitches that cropped up in Paint.NET most notably that I could no longer zoom fully into an image and edit or even see the entire thing. For example I was trying to edit an image that is 1400*750. When I used [CRTL]+Scroll to zoom in as far as I could, it let me zoom in to 3200%. However it defaulted to an area that was at the edge of a 1024*550 rectangle set in the upper left corner of the image. I tired several times to scroll further down the image in full zoom, but Paint.NET refused to let me (it would however let me scroll further over using the scroll bars, but not edit anything outside of the above mentioned area). I have removed all plugins, uninstalled AutoCAD, reinstalled Paint.NET (both versions 3.5.7 and 3.5.8) and nothing has fixed this issue. To show what I am talking about I have uploaded the following files: (318k) (273k) The first is the error when zoomed in all the way, the second shows where I am in the image when zoomed out. As I noted above (in the topic description) Paint.NET will not even let me select 2400% as a zoom, and the scroll-to-zoom skips
  4. EDIT: "Frozen Leaf" Stock secured from Timothy Cizadlo Photography on a pre-release agreement (WOOHOO for fun legal messes! ) SVGA resolution, higher availble
  5. I think this goes here, but Bossk, I can't PM you, as you have it disabled.
  6. Hey, I just use a foam baseball bat, you guys are quite mean sometimes.
  7. Damn you and your blasted logic! Yeah Bossk, I'll accept your appology, but I'd still like to (politely) thwap you on the head for having an easy to guess password.
  8. Part of me is, but also I want to know if those opinions on gun control were is or note (due to some of his wording in the opening post). I guess I'm just jaded. EDIT: Also, I won't hold stuff against you - so you are forgiven in that respect. But I do have a long memory (heck I followed Valjean for over 10 years).
  9. I'll accept the apology conditionally, as the "Friend hacked my account" is the second oldest in the book (right after "My sibling hacked my account") in the troll play book [being a part-time troll-hunter I know their ways]. I also want to get the time line strait: [*:24awp5g3]Friend Hacks your account[*:24awp5g3]Friend posts in the Gun Control thread[*:24awp5g3]You discover said hack Is this list correct?
  10. He says he tried to load a Gamecube game on an xBox 360 - that's either stupid beyond words, or a troll. The other fact that he uses Photoshop on an SVGA resolution screen is so stupid as to almost have to be a troll. As for me being wrong, it might be the case, but my internal error-checking is of rather high quality (although I have had a few to many false positives on my Troll-o-meter in the past).
  11. What the...? Of course it doesn't! You actually expected it to? It broke when i shoved it in the xbox! Either you are less intelligent that I thought, or you are a troll. If the later then Yes, I do hate you (with good reason). If the former, then I don't hate you - I hate your ideas, or more aptly, lack thereof. Edit: and I would have said this over PMs if you hadn't disabled them on your end. Stupid Memory Card Reader overheated and fried the plastic case (literally). Now I can't upload off the memory card locally to my laptop. I actually have to use the card reader on the workstation. This is going to suck for that shoot tomorrow when my clients want instant gratification on the candids.
  12. Are we allowed to watermark the images for submission (I prefer watermarking to corner tagging, as the later can be clipped very easily)?
  13. Photo Editing (work related - I'm a professional Photographer), and the others for fun.
  14. Thank you, I always try to go for the minimalist look, as it reduces the file size (when I bother to optimize it). andRoll.: Not bad. 8/10
  15. I can't vote for any of the above at this point. [*:3fwabs7a]Hillery - I can't stand her. [*:3fwabs7a]Obama - To Naive and when he tries to pass himself off as not a politician, it's quite obviously fake. [*:3fwabs7a]McCain - He's a RINO, who has voted against several of my main positions. [*:3fwabs7a]Huckster, I mean Huckabee - The guy creeps me out on a visceral level. The fact that he's comes off as a Christian Supremacist doesn't earn him any points with me either.
  16. Well It's lower (significantly) than in other suburbs of Atlanta; Link Link Link And even Atlanta itself Link Trust me, I do understand that the end result is almost the same (and I know you guys have a Parliamentary bicameral legislature), and it is useful to have a head of state that is not the Head of Government, but for me it's the principle of the thing. Here the government can try to tell us what not to do, while in most Monarchies (even ceremonial ones like yours) the Government tells people what they can do. It's Semantics for the most part, but for a civil-libertarian like myself, it's an important distinction. Edit: I do give you guys credit - your country is buying into the RIM-161 program (AKA SM-3), so you guys at least are building out a Theater/Limited Strategic ABM System) Grasping at straws are you not? I Give you the following quote from a great Physicist: Unless you think you are better than Einstein? Also - Guess what. Give me (personally) a machine shop like the kind you would find in any third world country or African mud hole, and I could have a set of breach loading weapons (IE weapons equivalent to those found in Europe from the 1400s to the early 1800) inside of 2 weeks, and I never finished my Electrical (not Mechanical or Industrial) Engineering degree!. Guns are not hard to make, heck your own country still makes bolt action rifles that we stoped making 50 years ago! Why? Because they work! Edit - What I am trying to say is that if you want to get rid of all guns everywhere. then you've set the whole world back to Pre 1300s Europe Levels. the Technology needed to build a gun is the same type needed to build say a mechanical clock, a large bell, and is much simpler than what you need to build a light-bulb or power plant. Seeing as you use a computer, I don't think you would like that world very much.
  17. Alright. I hereby point to the City of Washington DC - a place where a law was in place that banned handguns from being owned by anyone other than current or former Law Enforcement officers, and those registered before 1976. The Crime Rate in DC is roughtly 2.6 times the national average. Link The Crime Rate in Kennesaw Georgia (where the head of a household MUST own and Maintain a firearmLink) is roughtly .15 times the national average. Link Obviously, the banning of Guns didn't work. True, but I am under the impression that the current discussion is relevent to the United States of America. The fact that you guys over in Europe have fewer guns. You also tend to have Top-Down systems of law (where peoples rights are what the government says they are), instead of the US system of Bottom-Up rule of law (where in theory the government is limited by the people). Edit- In other words you guys (in the Netherlands, UK, Scandinavia, and other countries with a monarch) are subjects of the Monarch in question. In the USA the Government is a servant of the people.
  18. Minors are not citizens, and thus don't have the same rights as an adult.
  19. I have no problems with limiting the ownership of firearms among certain parts of the population (as you said, Convicted Criminals [atleast those who's crime(s) are/were violent], and those with certain mental illnesses [which would probably include me at some level]). And I agree that the laws need to me standardized, something that we should hopefully get with Heller. Because you keep parroting the same line over and over even after I've shot it down. That and the fact that you haven't said how you plan on removing the right to bear arms from the American Public, not to mention the weapons themselves.
  20. 8/10 At least it isn't Brother-Eye (DCU Reference)
  21. While I mentioned Les Mis in my post at the top of page 5, I didn't give the full story. Back many years ago, durring my Junior Year in High School, we put on Les Miserables, and I was the stage manager. Several times durring the 3 weeks leading up to the show, both the main Javert and the understudy were absent. At such times I would take on the role. This combined with my Drill-Sargent like tone of voice ("If your god had wanted you to live he would not have created me!") with to the stagehands lead to them calling me Javert.
