The percentage of geekiness
Son calls, asks; “How do you do lossless rotation in Gimp?”
Well I really don’t know; in Windows I normally use XnView for this purpose, and I never looked into it on my Linux machine. So I do a little quick searching and much to my surprise, Gimp doesn’t do lossless rotation. But gThumb does, so I talk him through using Synaptics package manager and we both install gThumb on our machines. And a little messing around and presto! we’re doing lossless rotations.
Me: “Gee, son, I feel like we both just got a little geekier.”
Son: “Expressed as a percentage, I just got a lot geekier than you did.”
That’s actually a pretty geeky way to look at it, son. You may already be geekier than you realized…
