O hai

Sleeping with your head rotated all the way around and your eyes half open is probably a policy more of us should follow.

To the person who shit in a sock at Kmart.. - w4w

To the person who shit in a sock at Kmart.. - w4w

About 2 years ago, I was a janitor at the Centre Kmart. I went about my janitor duties and swept out the bathroom- The womens' room I might add.. and my broom caught a hold of something heavy behind the toilet..

I swept it out and found out that it was a sock. With my gloved hand, I picked up the sock, curious as to why the sock was so heavy... I wish I never did do that.. for I looked inside and, sure enough!.. there was a turd in that sock.

I've got to know.. this has been bothering me for 2 years now. I still wonder why.. and how.. shit got in that sock.

Did you get into the bathroom stall and think to yourself.. "Do I really want to shit in this public toilet, or.. oh hey! I have this comfortable sock I could shit into instead!" -and just hold that sock up to your ass and go for it?

If this is so- and you were able to hold that up to your ass and successfully bag that shit- then I applaud you for executing such a task- and also for doing one of the most disgusting, confusing things I've ever seen in my young life...

What happened in that stall that possessed you to do such a vile, horrid thing? You've left me in sheer wonderment for quite some time and I just have to know now. It is time to fess up. Please help my mind be at peace.

I think you will all appreciate this person's commenting style. It seems very familiar to me.

XeePhotoshopLoader.m (from Xee, which is pretty good):

while([fh offsetInFile]+12<=imageoffs)
  uint32_t sign=[fh readUInt32BE];
  uint32_t marker=[fh readUInt32BE];
  uint32_t chunklen=[fh readUInt32BE];
  off_t nextchunk=[fh offsetInFile]+((chunklen+3)&~3);
At this point, I'd like to take a moment to speak to you about the Adobe PSD format. PSD is not a good format. PSD is not even a bad format. Calling it such would be an insult to other bad formats, such as PCX or JPEG. No, PSD is an abysmal format. Having worked on this code for several weeks now, my hate for PSD has grown to a raging fire that burns with the fierce passion of a million suns.

If there are two different ways of doing something, PSD will do both, in different places. It will then make up three more ways no sane human would think of, and do those too. PSD makes inconsistency an art form. Why, for instance, did it suddenly decide that these particular chunks should be aligned to four bytes, and that this alignement should not be included in the size? Other chunks in other places are either unaligned, or aligned with the alignment included in the size. Here, though, it is not included. Either one of these three behaviours would be fine. A sane format would pick one. PSD, of course, uses all three, and more.

Trying to get data out of a PSD file is like trying to find something in the attic of your eccentric old uncle who died in a freak freshwater shark attack on his 58th birthday. That last detail may not be important for the purposes of the simile, but at this point I am spending a lot of time imagining amusing fates for the people responsible for this Rube Goldberg of a file format.

Earlier, I tried to get a hold of the latest specs for the PSD file format. To do this, I had to apply to them for permission to apply to them to have them consider sending me this sacred tome. This would have involved faxing them a copy of some document or other, probably signed in blood. I can only imagine that they make this process so difficult because they are intensely ashamed of having created this abomination. I was naturally not gullible enough to go through with this procedure, but if I had done so, I would have printed out every single page of the spec, and set them all on fire. Were it within my power, I would gather every single copy of those specs, and launch them on a spaceship directly into the sun.

PSD is not my favourite file format.

  if(sign!='8BIM') break; // sanity check

    case 'Lr16':
      layers=[XeePhotoshopLayerParser parseLayersFromHandle:fh parentImage:self alphaFlag:NULL];
