For .gifs you need a fairly recent version (post the expiry of the .gif patent)

Or of course a really old version before the GIF support was removed over the patent concerns :-)

    I thought about mentioning that, but then realised that even if you could get your hands on the very old versions of the libgd sources, you'd probably need a very old version of Perl also to make the whole thing hang together.

    I did build GD from source once, but it was a pain to do, took ages to gather all the requisite bits together, and was genraly a PITA. Along the way I patched a couple of bugs, but then installed a later version of perl and screwed things up. After that I went back to using PPM to install it.

[Your Mother]: Real ideas. Ideas grounded in reality as well.
[LanX]: still some good newer ones. Oblivion had a great design, Moon was well acted
[Your Mother]: Moon was mind bending and lovely and what's his nose Sam is *always* fun.
[LanX]: the new BS Galactica series is my all time SoapFiction favourite ...
[Your Mother]: I even liked "The Arrival" and I generally hate time travel (oriented) stuff.
[Your Mother]: Gotta go. Stay out of trouble.
[LanX]: no worries ... mainland Europe is safe ;-P
