  • Any Pantone colour so long as it's black: If you use uncommon Pantone colours in your artwork, you're gonna have a bad day.  (Pluralistic)

    Pantone wants license fees.  Like $20 per month per user, which is more than Adobe charges for Photoshop.  So support is going away.

    And since Photoshop is a subscription now and automatically updates itself, its going away right now.

    So if you load up an image that worked fine yesterday and is now just a random collection of black smears, that's why.

    Well, that or you accidentally download an Democrat ad campaign.


  • The open source community immediately stepped in with a solution:




  • Which was just far enough off to be useless:




  • But the creator is actively working to with users to resolve any issues:



    Also, colour is complicated.


  • A handheld device with a 7" 1920x1200 screen covering 100% sRGB colour?  I am so there.

    Prices starting at $1199?  Maybe not so much.  (Liliputing)

    It does come with a Ryzen 6800U and up to 32GB of RAM and 2TB of storage, but it's a niche within a niche.


  • Details have leaked of AMD's new high-end graphics cards and this close to launch they're likely to be pretty accurate.  (WCCFTech)

    Where the current 6950XT has 16GB of RAM and 80 cores ("compute units" in AMD terminology), the 7900XT will have 20GB of RAM and 168 cores, and the 7950XT 24 GB and 192 cores.

    The new designs are split into multiple chips, with a large main chip handling computation and multiple smaller chips (five on the 7900XT, six on the 7950XT) handling the memory interface and caches.

    While the total silicon area on a 7950XT won't be much less than on Nvidia's RTX 4090, the largest chip will be half the size, making it easier and cheaper to produce.  We'll have to wait and see how much easier and cheaper, and also how much of that 140% increase on compute hardware translates into real world performance.



Disclaimer: There’ll be an airplane crash in Burma next week, but it shouldn’t affect me here in New York. And the feegs certainly can’t harm me. Not with all my closet doors closed.

No, the big problem is lesnerizing. I must not lesnerize. Absolutely not. As you can imagine, that hampers me.

And to top it all, I think I’m catching a really nasty cold.

2 Lesnerizing is great, but widlarizing is best.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
