Fight, fight, fight!

I do beat myself up sometimes…

The Internet was down yesterday, and so I was forced to turn to more inventive methods of time-wasting. These are very rough and ready, but I’m not a graphics person by any stretch of the imagination, so allow it:

Fight, fight, fight!

Fight, fight, fight!

Inner turmoil?

    This actually frightens me.

  3. Helen says:

    why are you wearing the same thing? Is it some Cambridge tradition?

  4. Red Dalek says:

    Ur… I tend to share a very similar taste in pyjamas with myself?

  5. Andy says:

    As if you have pyjamas with Cambridge on!

  6. Red Dalek says:

    (There’s an absolute epidemic of ‘as if’s at Waseley at the moment!)

    And I do Tasha got them for me!

  7. Katie Self says:

    It took me a few moments to work out you were the same person in the pictures

    Very worring indeed.

  8. Andy says:

    As if you say we Waseleyites say that too much…

  9. Alex says:


    This is certainly an original one, in terms of ‘what to do when your internet goes down’! I like to think I’m fairly creative in that situation – we’ll all ignore the times when we crawl up into a tight ball and sob… – but nothing like this!

    I also love the fact that *most* people, would probably just watch tv, sleep, or….god forbid…..go outside…

  10. Lucy says:

    Wait wait…did you say ‘allow it’, as in ‘low it?


  11. Red Dalek says:

    Yes! Perfectly acceptable phrase

  12. Abbi says:

    Good heavens, Dom… just how bored were you??

  13. ohla says:

    sexcccc legs!

  14. Jakov says:

    How much would i bet that you use the proprietary photoshop to make those, instead of the open source gimp.

  15. Red Dalek says:

    Well, in that case you’d be on to a loser, since I used neither!

  16. Red Dalek says:

    (Also – talk about using a sledgehammer to crack a nut! Rather than using GHex, a simple right-click -> Properties would have told you both the name of the manipulation software and the camera stuff! Jeez, learn to use GUI guys…)

  17. Jakov says:

    I can’t help it, I love taking stuff apart like that, if it was any other situation, I’d reach for the hexdump every time.

    As someone called Kaitnieks once said, "Why do with a shovel what you can do with a bulldozer?"

  18. Jakov says:

    It seems you used Kodak Easyshare,

    closed source, of course.

    after that, I was looking around the file, and theres an attribute which says thing like the shutter speed and exposure, all in what seems to be XML,
    (Added line breaks and indenting for ease of read)

    This has inspired me to learn more about JPEG compression

  19. Red Dalek says:

    Kodak Easyshare is related to the camera, not the image manipulation software, which was actually Paint.NET. (The source code, if interested, is available at < )

    Glad to have inspired though
