This one's for the Ladies!

You know what I hate?

PostScript.

And you know what I hate worse than PostScript?

Attempting to make a TIF image, converting that to PostScript, attempting to make that into an appropriate encapsulated postscript file with the correct translations and rotations so that I can call .PSPIC from a troff document and use that as letterhead without mucking with the troff in twenty-seven million Perl commands.

All because the company I work for decided to move their main office.

Working with PostScript, Perl, and troff makes me both happy and grateful to live in a world where such tools exist, while at the same time makes me feel like smoking some serious pharmaceutical mind-altering substance which has no modern equivalent.

Thank you.

And have a nice day.
