rainsfletcher: Hmmm....I thought this was interesting.
Or for a museum that specializes in all things Phallic:
Hey Rain, I had a look, strange, I thought a "stud" was a compliment, but they've got the size as "Blelow average".
the bookmark ist funny but awfully small. i tend to doubt myself being part of the elite top 1:1 000 000
hið íslenska raðasafn!!!!
lol, yeah, icelanders are the best.
look at me
If they're going to do one, they could at least put it in PDF format so that the programmer controls the size when it's printed out.
LoveGirl: What jonb said!
Oh, PDF = Portable Document Format. It makes a good format for scans of multi-page documents, but also it's required to print out in the exact measures as the programmer puts in, using margins if you use paper larger than 8 1/2 x 11.
The link below is for software to read PDFs:
Actually, Adobe Reader only prints PDF files to exact scale if you bother to select the right options. In the print dialog, you must select Page Scaling: None. Otherwise, the doucment will be enlarged or reduced to fit the page.
However, Adobe Reader is at the mercy of your printer driver, and some printer drivers (particularly ones for postscript-language printers) have settings which allow the print-out to be rescaled, regardless of what the printing program wants. If these settings are inadvertently changed, printouts will not be to scale.
Bear in mind that the rest of the earth uses slightly different size paper than North America, and many programs automatically shrink foreign documents slightly to get them to fit on US paper.
Finally, most printers are less dimensionally accurate in the long dimension of the paper than across its width. This is because the accuracy of the paper feed rollers depends on the thickness of the paper, and also because of the possiblity of slippage. Certain printers used for engineering drawings where dimensional accuracy is critical have adjustments for paper thickness.
Therefore, if you want to be sure that someting is printed to true size, it is always good practice to include a reference size, both horizontal and vertical, so that the printout can be measured and checked.
LoveGirl: I knew what a PDF was though...I was just agreeing with you
BRMSTN69: the computer stupid part of me says, uh... do what??? :unsure:
Don't worry, they do know what they're on about.
Hapi Papi: YAAAAAAY! I'm 4 years old! ... Why am I working in that sweatshop?
Somehow, I think that's a load of BS, who's been measuring 4 year olds?
Michael Jackson, maybe.
