image processing

eiffel tower on google maps

These are the things that make you go “Oooh, niiice”. Notice how the long line of people waiting to get on to the tower is still in the picture since it was moving so slowly, that the image processing could not detect it as people and left them in (moving things like people and cars are usually removed).

falling apart

Like all things in this world, my computer too is showing signs of age. At times, the CD drive stops working, which I tend to by taking off the case cover and reattaching the connecting wires after blowing on them in an attempt to remove dust. This is an easy task, since I keep my computer in a state of "easy undress"; all screws removed, with the inner wires arranged for easy access. However, while you might think that this redressal would allow me to get on with my work, my computer decides otherwise during the next boot: Error: Floppy Drive(s) Fail. After the floppy is fixed, it's the keyboard's turn, where one encounters the funniest IBM joke yet: Keyboard fail. Press F1 to continue.
