    Ah, the 6502. I still have my Synertek SYM-1 that started life as a
    simple SBC with only 1k ram, no high level language or even an
    assembler. You had to enter machine code in with the hard to use
    on-board keyboard and see it with a 6 digit LED display. I used
    KIM-1's at work so I figured I'd get a SYM-1 at home to play with.

    I added some code to display a single line of 32 characters of text on
    an oscilloscope. Added 16k RAM by stacking the 2114 chips on top of
    each other in each socket, soldering all the leads together except for
    the CS, which I ran to the address decoder using wire wrap wire
    because there were no leads on the board.

    Added a basic interpreter and an assembler in ROM. Added an RS-232
    terminal so I could use a proper keyboard and monitor. Added floppy
    drives so I didn't have to store my programs on casette tape anymore,
    and the FORTH programming language to control the floppy drives and do
    some more interesting programming than basic. With a terminal, basic,
    FORTH, it became a very useful little system.

    It's up in the attic in a box along with a couple of Apple ][+'s, and
    even some of the old Franklin clones of the Apples and one clone of
    the Apple ][+ that I just bought the bare circuit board for and
    populated myself.

    Man, those were the fun days before I moved on to the Z80 in the
    Northstar Horizon that's also still around somewhere.

    You're regressing. Time to take your meds!

    You finally realize you're completely wrong on the points and have to
    resort to nothing more than ad hominem attacks. At least you know
    when to give up.

    Don't start lying. It doesn't do anything for your credibility.
    Notice that this is almost a decade old and it's an artificial situation
    that doesn't occur in real life.

    Which you'd know if you were educated.

    Or you're a liar who doesn't even use Photoshop professionally.
    Outdated, artificial, and irrelevant.

  9. I guess your electricity is useless too, that's been around for ages now. It has
    no real use out in the real world other than when used to make lightning
    strikes, act as a defense in a rare few species, and to run nerve impulses.
    Unless you are an electric-eel, quit using it. For that matter, quit using JPEG
    compression too, and a thousand other things that fit your criteria.

    Try inventing more red-herring bullshit and nonsense.

    Is your psychosis really this deep that you have to reach this far to try to
    retain your pretend-photographer delusions? Pretty sad. Pretty sad indeed.

    Try sticking your fingers in your ears and humming a tune, see if that'll help.
    If it doesn't drown out reality enough for you, try to push harder with your
    fingers until you find some gray-matter.

    Do want to know the most hilarious part about your replies?

    You and all others pride yourselves on wanting the most detail, the most
    precision, the highest resolution, the best lenses and cameras that money can
    try to buy. Even one simple resizing when using last-century's Bicubic is a
    muddy mess compared to a one-step resizing using Sinc256/Lanczos-8. (But then,
    you'd know this if you ever compared them in your daily work-flow.) Why is it
    that; when it comes to having access to the best resizing, rotation, and
    perspective correction algorithm; you moan and cry about it. Why is that?
    Because, it can't be put into your much beloved and bloated, overpriced, 16-bit
    math program of PhotoShop. The existence of this highest-quality algorithm in
    dozens of other 32-bit programs, some even FREEware, (and all the people that
    use Lanczos regularly) *proves* that PhotoShop is only 16-bit math. Not only
    that, but you are being left so far behind in the dark-ages due to your
    misplaced PhotoShop worship that it has made you this ignorant too. Another
    thing is that using PTGui and other FREEware pano-tools for panoramas that
    *does* use Lanczos-8 proves that PhotoShop royally sucks when it comes to doing
    panoramas correctly too. PhotoShop can only blur everything it tries to correct
    before stitching due to it only having Bicubic available.

    You do realize, that any further advice that you type from now on is always
    going to be seen as worthless, uneducated, inexperienced dross don't you?

    Eat it.

    If you think his psychosis is bad when pretending to be a
    photographer, you should see how bad it is when he pretends to be a
    software engineer.

    Gimp can use sinc/lanczos interpolation for scaling and rotating.

    Easy. Combine all of the resamples into one.

    Oh, but that's too hard for you to understand. You think that people
    NEED to rotate an image100 time, one degree at a time, instead of
    just doing a single rotation. In fact, I bet you're even stupid
    enough to believe that people NEED to do 100 one degree rotations.

    So now YOU admit that you don't have any rebuttal.
    Yawn. The usual unsubstantiated bullshit.

    People aren't interested in your cult. Nobody cares. Your Holy
    Lanczos-8 isn't useful enough for anybody to bother with.

    You don't even need to do multiple steps of processing to see why
    sinc/lanczon interpolation is better. The following is an example of
    a single stage resize and the difference it can make.

    First, a 100% crop of an area showing why some interpolators might
    have problems. The regular pattern of the corrugations in the side of
    the plane are trouble:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/sss_random_shots/3055500937/sizes/o/

    Now, a resize to 640x427 by Nikon PicturePerfect. Notice how the
    corrugations cause morrie patterns:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/sss_random_shots/3056337614/sizes/o/

    And now a resize to 640x426 by XnView using sinc/lanczos interpolator.
    No more morrie patterns from the corrugations. Only typical jpeg
    artifacts that I could have removed by compressing it less:
