Strawberry Perl

I just hate Microsoft Windows. But, that's where the man pays me to work. When I had to install Perl, I disregarded ActivePerl in favor of the less corporate Strawberry Perl. It works delightfully!

I used it to convert Hot 108 Jamz WinAmp PLS playlist to an M3U playlist for Windows Media Player (don't ask me why... I forget). I used the scripts from the Linux Lighting Group found here.

Fade To Black

I used ImageMagick to create a TGA sequence that faded from black to a logo, and then from the logo back to black. This is the gist of my Python script:

 for i in range(0, 101, 2):
  os.system('composite -dissolve %d logo.tga black.tga %03d.tga' % (i,  (i / 2)))
