Saving files per drag-n-drop

When you close newer versions of the GIMP, a small dialog appears showing thumbnails of unsaved images. In the development version you can drag and drop those thumbnails to a “XDS” compatible file manager to save them!

Is Bush a Sith Lord? – go on, lap it up!

The current episode of Star Wars is dynamite for the duplicitous Bush administration.

While still at college I rushed late into a talk being given by local business men. Me – unshaven, weaing jeans and old tshirt, got the business card of my old boss after talking to him about my Perl college project. I never heard what the talk was about, probably the usual guff about students being great and all that sort of stuff!
7 years later here I am, older and a little bit wiser and about to start another episode in the life of me!
Announcement to come in the next 2 weeks! Thanks for reading.
