Merry Christmas, I thought I had replied at length, about the CDs and
all that as well? I will resend tonight if I can find the mail in my
sent folder. There's quite a few people I haven't heard from after I
mailed them some weeks back, perhaps there was a screwup on my
My friend, I hope Santa gave you a piece of coal this year :-) I have
been and am busy with the end of the year cleaning, that is
traditional in Japan. Once done, I hope to have some minutes to spare
to catch up on email and hobby-related pursuits. Do not worry, you
file is safe with my Windows file system (not!).
Happy year end cleaning Gernot!
I got lots of coal for Chrstmas! :-) I was wondering why that was...
A secure Windoze fs? Hmm... must be one of them new-fangled "Vista"
Neah, there is no such thing as a safe Windoze. If it's safe then I'm
sure it is stored on your Linux box. :-D
You have your head on right there, sir, indeed it is on my linux
box. Thanks for the good wishes, same to you! I had a look at the
image last night in GIMP, should not be too much trouble to handle the
translations after the new year. A resolution that can disappear by
the 3rd of January I think. I am still trying to get some OCR software
working that I require for my job. In this day and age I cannot
understand why after a 10 day conference in India we get a poor
photocopy of a printout with the names and email addresses of the
several hundred attendees. Grr! I may give up and use commercial OCR
under windows on this one.
Thanks for the update Gernot and sorry to hear about your problem with
the low-tech email listing. You figure that in this day and age they
would have emailed you the list as a text file (not sent a poor
photocopy). If it was a copy of a printout that means the original
text is on someone's computer.
I'll just wait patiently ...
