wallentoblueCmd: Excellent, I sent you a pm03:21
olofk_Anyone handy with vector graphics? I got a git logo in .eps format, but I need it to have a transparent background instead of whie08:03
ZipCPUolofk_: Won't the gimp work for you?  Create a plain white background, a transparent layer, paste the logo onto the transparent layer, then merge layers ...?08:34
wallentoolofk: just open it in inkscape and remove the background layer09:20
olofk_ZipCPU: Wouldn't that force me to convert it to a bitmap?09:27
olofk_wallento: Giving inkscape a shot. Have been meaning to install that for a while09:31
olofk_oh.. that's one part of the world that hasn't move to python3. Tons of python2 dependencies :/09:31

ZipCPU|Laptopgsave 1 setgray newpath left bottom moveto right bottom lineto right top lineto left top lineto closepath fill grestore13:29
ZipCPU|Laptopbefore anything more in your EPSF file.  You'll need to look up the "left" "right" "bottom" and "top" numbers from the %%BoundingBox:13:29
ZipCPU|Laptopline at the top of the file ... but that'd work.13:30
olofk_ZipCPU|Laptop: It sounds like you have a far better understanding of this than I have :)16:08
ZipCPU|LaptopWould you believe there's been more than one time that I've written raw postscript?  I bought the Adobe book on postscript for my master's thesis, and I've found knowing how to write postscript since then to be valuable.16:09
ZipCPU|LaptopWhy, here's a good one: to fill out my passport application to come to ORCONF2016, I converted the application from pdf to postscript and then added my own postscript to each page to create a form that looked "typed" or filled in.16:10
ZipCPU|LaptopTrue stories.16:16
ZipCPUolofk_: I've looked up pulpino, and I'm not really finding any QuadSPI code at all save a reference to Xilinx's SPI library.20:28
ZipCPUIs this the website I should be looking at: ?20:29
