Clearing the undo history of this image will gain 428.6 MB of memory.

Image editing is going much better with 8 Gigabytes of memory. I've been able to get three or four images done for FromOldBooks.org in the time it used to take to do one.

On the other hand, the only reason I get any images scanned and edited at all is because I get too tired to do much else; it's pretty insanely busy here.

Unfortunately, Google's ads almost entirely stopped working on my Web site (Google downgraded my pagerank from 8 to 4 a few months ago), and with the fall in the US dollar (it's been bushed), we're struggling a bit more than we'd like. OK, a lot more than we'd like.

Luckily, my spam says that I won the UK Microsoft email lottery, and the prize is either (1) all of Nigeria, or (2) more spam. Speaking of which, SpamAssassin seems to be working better after a one-line fix (I filed a bug for it). Or at least its not complaining as much.

So, today's image (no, I won't post them every day) is an ammeter from an 1892 book:
