in thread GD @ 300dpi output

like the German tourists who are regularly questioned by US Customs as to whether they want to poison their relatives.
It may be a bit tangential to the topic at hand, but could you expand a bit on that?

I have absolutely no clue what you are referring to...

    possibly a reference to a false friend: english "poison" = german "Gift"

    soonix got it right: The word "gift" sounds and looks exactly the same in English and in German. But in German, it means "poison"! And Customs has the tendency to ask things like "Did you bring a gift for your family?" :-)
