Removing an object on a photo with GIMP Tutorial to remove objects (or people) and restore the portion of the background they hide in a photo with the Resynthesizer plugin. An impressive video has been posted on Youtube to show how, with Photoshop, it is possible to delete objects in an image automatically, without any design work. The same can be done with The Gimp in fact and for longer (it is not impossible that the same algorithm has been reused). This plugin "re-synthesizes" the background" and rebuilds it from same elements on the photo. It can thus reconstruct the sky, lawn, or even more complex views, from a sample taken from the image. First, see the Resynthesizer tutorial to know the purpose of controls. We will put in practice the commands using the same pictures that the Photoshop demonstration video.

DIY PROJECTS After 22 years, it appears that quite a few DIY enthusiasts are still eyeing the A40 Class A amplifier design, but are discovering that not a single transistor from this design is still available. The following information is for those scouting out substitute parts: The Lambda output devices are no longer available, and they weren’t that common to begin with. Lambda appears to still be in business, but not in the business of power transistors. Common everyday complementary power darlington transistors will substitute for these. Good examples of these are the TIP142 (NPN) and TIP147 (PNP), which are currently available from Digikey. Another fine example, although harder to get, are the Motorola MJ11012, MJ11014, and MJ11016 (NPN) and MJ11013 and MJ11015 (PNP). The remaining bipolar transistors MPSL01 and MPSL51 can be substituted by ordinary TO-92 devices rated at voltages of 100 volts or more, and currents of 25 mA or more. So that’s it.

Linux Equivalents to Windows Software There are many articles written about the reasons why users may wish to convert to Linux. Frequently cited reasons include the favorable licensing terms, the freely distributable software (with source code), support from the Linux community, improved security, open file formats, the fact that Linux can run on a wide variety of platforms, etc. However, unless a desktop user is provided with real alternatives to the existing software he or she currently uses, migration to a different operating system is going to be very difficult. This collection of articles aims to dispel the myth that Linux isn't ready for the desktop user to move away from the Microsoft world. For each Linux application, we have compiled a portal page providing an overview of the software, a screenshot of the application in action, a comprehensive list of its features, and links to sites offering information and support on the software such as forums, tutorials, and reviews. The list above is not exhaustive.

Oracle motor/controller problems - DIY turntable diyAudio Member Join Date: Feb 2004 Location: Chinook Country.Alberta g-horn....don't even try to make it work...YET! Let's have a look at the complete electrical system. It almost sounds (sorry for the pun, not intended) like the power supply is putting out AC, or it is being rectified as voltage *sqrt(AC voltage). OK here's the results of the voltages. so a couple of alternatives: Get a "Dynamic stabilizer" from whence your turntable parts came from, or build or get a rock stable 24 VDC power supply. stew __________________ stew ☮ -"A sane man in an insane world appears insane." Books that will induce a mindfuck Here is the list of books that will officially induce mindfucks, sorted alphabetically by author. Those authors in bold have been recommended by one or more people as being generally mindfucking - any books listed under their names are particularly odd. You're welcome to /msg me to make an addition to this list. And finally, although he's way down at the bottom, my personal recommendation is definitely Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States, as it turns the ultimate mindfuck: inverting the world-view of our entire culture, and it is non-fiction.

MartinLogan Source High-Performance Electrostatic Loudspeaker (Single, Black): Electronics List of linguistic example sentences The following is a partial list of linguistic example sentences illustrating various linguistic phenomena. Interaction of syntax and semantics[edit] Syntax and meaning can interact, such that although a sentence is syntactically valid, and all of its words are meaningful, the sentence as a whole is meaningless. Examples of this type of sentence include: Ambiguity[edit] Different types of ambiguity which are possible in language. Lexical ambiguity[edit] Demonstrations of words which have multiple meanings dependent on context. Will will Will will Will's will to Will? Syntactic ambiguity[edit] Demonstrations of ambiguity between alternative syntactic structures underlying a sentence. Syntactic ambiguity, incrementality, and Local Coherence[edit] Demonstrations of how incremental syntactic parsing leads to infelicitous constructions and interpretations. Every farmer who owns a donkey beats it.[8]Somewhere in Britain, some woman has a child every thirty seconds. Embedding[edit] Word order[edit]
