Posted 04-06-2012 at 11:56 PM by stretchedthin

Tintii version 2.6.1 was just recently released. So I thought I'd use the occation to get the word out on this Opensource application. In the Tintii's own words...
"For photographers who love to express colour, use Tintii for colour on black-and-white, colour popping, selective colour, saturation contrast and subtle hue and lightness adjustments. Use Tintii..."
So in simplier terms Tintii will extract the color from everything you do not want to draw focus too. This...

OnLive + Wine = Windows Gaming on Linux

Posted 04-04-2012 at 11:09 PM by stretchedthin

I think I posted this once on LQ in response to a question. Still desearves to be part of the blog though.

Onlive is gaming in the cloud. Designed for Windows and Mac but unintentionally, it is also a leap forward for Linux (and Mac) users who want easy access to the world of Windows PC games.

Yoono All your social networking in one place.

Posted 04-04-2012 at 03:17 PM by stretchedthin
