Font old-style affascinanti

Just today I was browsing through an old book of cocktails manual, will have been printed around the seventies and I was very intrigued photos: wonderful. Another aspect that caught, what I want to talk about today, are the fonts used. If it was a recent book (even up to 20 years ago) in all probability would have been used Times o l'Arial, in this case in particular have been used instead of three characters singular: one for the title, one for the ingredients and another for the body.

I TV plasma Panasonic “S30″ are no longer updated, video encoding for the correct TV “ffmpeg”

My new TV is a Panasonic Viera Plasma series "S30", generation (I would rather penultimate generation). Has the ability to connect to the internet, function that allows me through a few applications developed "ad hoc" of see the trailer movies currently in theaters, unload (paying) the latest movies and watch streaming, listen to internet radio in streaming, See Youtube videos, accessing Facebook and Picasa, download a feed updated in real time with the day's news in video format. In short, the applications are wasted.

Resize multiple images in one go

Resize Images, since the photo editing programs have become part of the routine of the average, is a task as simple as trivial. It is used especially for smaller size is available save bandwidth on the transfer of the file: a smaller image will load faster and also to use the pictures on the web is not required high resolution. The problem arises when we have a considerable number of images to be resized, open them one by one can become quite long and tedious.
