    I find it surprising that there isn't a Gimp on Linux subforum.. Since that is the platform which it was originally intended.

    Anyway this is a conversation continued.

    Dude, did you know Gimp accounts for both tips of the Wacom?

    You just select a different tool using the eraser side. And then a separate tool with the writing side.

    You can switch between the two tools by flipping the pen. Gimp automatically keeps track of it.

    Yup. keeps track of colours too. But this works with the driver (in windows) in all programs (eg. handwriting in WLM)

    Another good program like for PDF annotation is xournal. I use it to sign PDFs and send out filled out forms.

    I wouldn't have one if it hadn't already been hanging around. Tis an old one, but very serviceable.

    :p
    before i was all like:
    I HATE FARENHEIT!! I HATE FEET!!! I HAAATEEEE INCHEEES!!!!!!!!
    now im like:
    hmm... i need to memorize the formula to convert Cm into Inches.... idk, but i think farenheit is sumthing like:
    5*C = 10*F+2*F = 12*F
    4*C = 8*F+2*F = 10*F
    3*C = 6*F+2*F = 8*F
    2*C = 4*F+2*F = 6*F
    1*C = 2*F+2*F = 4*F
    0*C = 0*F+2*F = 2*F
    X*C = X*F+2*F = X+2*F

    Nice try sky. It's a good equation for back of the napkin calculations. It's actually

    n*1.8+32

    or (5*n/9)+32

    Where n is deg C converting to F.

    From F to C is (n-32)/1.8.

    And there's 2.54cm in 1 inch. I'm an engineer so I kinda pull these out of my butt.

    All you need to remember is units when doing conversions and they become easy.

    I know, that's what I meant :p I don't particularly care for exact conversion (hate fahrenheit, I usually just guess)

    *Tf = (9/5)*Tc+32; Tc = temperature in degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit or for me
    *Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32); Tc = temperature in degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit
    and we KNOW centimeters too
    15 cm is just a little shy of 6 inches and 6 inches is half a foot and 3 feet is a yard and 100 yards is football.

    *according to a Google search
