Today I put up a few pages (and images) documenting the color issues we're having with Adaptive Contrast Enhancement. I should probably do some Real Reading, because I'm sure "change luminosity but not chromacity" is an operation done by millions on a daily basis. Hopefully, someone will at least point me in the right direction. Thanks to Ankh, garrett, and the NOAA for providing images for me to use. I think that next, I'm going to have to do some work with a nudibranch.

Have decision to make about the shrink. Baked chocolate zucchini bread. Need to call Abbie back before she disappears again. Got distracted by bugs in someone else's code instead of brining my code to life. Watched Farscape. Did maintenance releases for GIMP plug-ins Adaptive Contrast Enhancement and antialias. Should do one for refract too, but that will be more gruesome as it hasn't been maintained in quite some time.

Okay, so The Spark has this thing that's kind of like the temprament-sorter meets Sixdegrees. Graph that against the certification network, whydontcha.

Had an enjoyable time meeting friends-of-friends today. "Oh, you're that Kevin?!" Apparently she wasn't properly warned... But a good time was had by all. Except for the fact that I througoughly lost the resturant we were supposed to lunch at and took an hour to find it <blush>

After returning home, I flipped on the five o'clock news and saw this story: Cable Dispute Leads To Police Shooting. While the news team was talking to their chopper-guy, I noticed there was a chopper hovering right over my house. Turns out this happened about three hundred meters away -- just up the street a piece. Eek!

This entry is just here to express distaste at some of the so-called articles of late which simply ask old questions without offering any research or insight into the matter. Bla, I say to you, bla. I'm not sure whether or not it's better than the rebirth of the "trust system is broken" articles. The only thing that occours to me is that we need some kind of enforced comminity memory-- before you post an article on any subject, you must read all the previous articles and follow-ups that have been posted here on that subject in the past.

Yes, I'm just a snob who's grouchy because he can't find anything to eat.

[Later] "Some technical questions" appeared after I wrote the above. While graydon's article certainly isn't in-depth, I do have to give him at least a few points for originality.
