    I would say 127 (ie the limit of usb)? I could be wrong.
  • PhotoSynth: What. How. Why.

    Forget all the possiblities for medical uses or astronomy.

    When I saw this video (and later checked out the website), this whole....thing (idea, program, heck even icon) screamed Apple! It seems like something Apple would have done. It makes me a little sad MSFT (er, Seadragon) did it, and not Apple. But I am happy nonetheless (and very much impressed) that Microsoft did do something like this.

    It is truely stunning. But what I would really like to see is for this to open up somehow/get ported to other platforms. I don't care if it goes opensource, but I would just LOVE to use this instead of iPhoto (yet still have it integrate with all the other apps).

    Obviously, I am a Mac user, but that doesn't mean I have to hate everything else. It really feels like something I would see on a Mac. Blaise, if you're listening, I hope that if it can't be brought over to the good side that it at least gets the integration it deserves on it's own platform. I think that's one thing MS could really learn from Apple (well, NeXT actually) and that's the fact apps should work together, and it shouldn't be hard for one thing to work with another.

    gtho. haha just kidding. King Crimson is one of the most important progressive rock bands of all time. You should certainly check them out if you haven't before. Also, check out the wikipedia article on prog rock if you need some background info.

    As somebody mentioned before, "In The Court Of The Crimson King" is one of their finest albums. I highly reccomend it
