Hello and Welcome,
Last Friday we expected Terry Eakin
to arrive with his new machine, this did not eventuate. I have received an
e-mail from Terry telling me he only came out of RNSH yesterday (19 November) after being hospitalised for 8 days.
Terry will spend the next two weeks at his sisters place. I
am sure you will all join me in wishing Terry all the best and that we hope
to see him back soon.

That lump of cellulose not only stops

Tip of the Week
Hugin - is a panorama photo stitching program which is accomplished by using
several overlapping photos taken from the same location, and using control
points to align and transform the photos so that they can be blended
together to form a larger image. Allows for the easy creation of
control points between two images, optimisation of the image transforms
along with a preview window so the user can see whether the panorama is
acceptable. Once the preview is correct, the panorama can be fully
stitched, transformed and saved in a standard image format. Tutorials Examples
So until next week, health and happiness,
Please remember if your e-mail address is changed for
