Perfect Resize 7 (Genuine Fractals)

I decided to do a comparison test between this and photoshops own native resizing, using an eye shot on a nikon d3 for the test I re sized to different sizes.

Conclusions are while PR/GF does give a slightly better rendering, the difference is marginal at best, you really have to pixel peep to see any difference (and that at 800% at normal print sizes I doubt you'd tell the difference, and certainly viewing a print it would be impossible to see any difference.

Perfect Resize 7 (Genuine Fractals) retails at about $99.

In time (film review)

I saw this last night in the pictures, so here's a review.

In time 2011, staring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried. The plot revolves around the concept that time is used as currency, after you reach age 25 you have to buy, beg, earn, or steal more time if you want to keep living. The poor struggle to exist day by day while the rich live in luxury.
The film is an interesting and original concept, and I found it well acted and entertaining.
Waynes rating 8/10 well worth a watch.

Recent events

Well it's that time again when we play silly buggers with the clocks, why we still do this pointless antiquated nonsense is beyond me, my new watch is a nightmare to change, I needed Stephen Hawking's to resets the bloody time.

There's been a big accident on the M5, 7 killed is the latest figure, it's thought smoke or fireworks from a rugby club bonfire may have caused the accident. Whether that's true or not remains to be seen, but the fact is fireworks are not really needed, time to stop this dangerous nonsense.

Another thing that needs to be stopped in "trick or treat" this silly American idea has caught on big time, trouble is it's used by yobs as an excuse to go out and vandalise things, time this was stopped as well.
