Bush wanted!

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

This made me chuckle. Hopefully one day the law enforcement agencies will get the bastard – before he emigrates to the 40,050 hectare ranch he has just bought in Paraguay. This was the same country that many Nazis escaped to after 1945. Seems the Bush Gang plans to do the same. It is unlikely to be a coincidence that Paraguay has a loophole in its extradition treaty with the USA that excludes “political crimes”!

Of course once the law gets after Bush and his criminal cronies, even if it can’t actually catch them all, there is a very good chance that we can finally get that grinning, lying, two-faced shyster Blair.

Wanted - George Dubbya Massmurderer Bush Bastard

This was lifted from…

There is a bigger version that you can download and use to print T-shirts or scale down for desktop wallpaper. You can also print it out and perhaps send a copy to Tony Blair just to make the lying two-faced bastard pee himself in anticipation of the fate that eventually awaits him.

As you all know, I am a very busy, international, jet-setting sort of a goose. This means I don’t have much time for mundane things, such as washing, tidying my pond or keeping my blog up to date.

The GIMP

Basically, I never bothered to change the look of my blog from the default “Kubrick” template that the WordPress software came with. Trouble was that frankly it looked rather boring. It was not the sort of image that a glamorous goose-about-town such as yours truly really desired. So last night I sat down with the latest GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program) and had a good splash around to see if I could perk up my blog just a little bit.

Now there is much debate online regarding GIMP versus a commercial product called Adobe Photoshop. I accept that Photoshop is generally pretty good. Lots of graphics professionals use it. But it costs a wing and a leg. And I am far too mean to pay for expensive, proprietary, American software. Besides, there isn’t a version for Linux yet – though I did make Photoshop version 7 for Windoze run under Linux using WINE, once upon a time. Buggered if I can remember how!

Granted, “GIMP” is a bloody silly name for a product that should really be taken very seriously. On the other hand, GIMP offers cross-platform compatibility in a manner that totally eludes Adobe. There are versions of GIMP for Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, Apple Crapintosh and Windoze. But its real difference is that GIMP is 100% open source. This means that the source code is freely available to all. It also means that GIMP can be recompiled for virtually any modern graphical operating system.

Even better, it is 100% FREE of charge too. Yes FREE! No strings, no adware, spies or nasty stuff. It’s just good, solid software for your computer with no damage to your wallet whatsoever.

So, whilst the arty types slug it out over on Slashdot & Purestorm, the debate round these parts never really left the pond. GIMP is now the official image editor of choice for all good little geese everywhere. Check it out…

Honk! Honk!
