    Introductory post


    Greetings to all you new, exciting and smart people,

    Occasionally Google has sent me to linuxforums when I am
    looking for an answer or hints but I have not been a regular
    lurker.

    I've been using Linux (Slackware) since I bought my first PC a
    decade or two ago. By now I am thoroughly addicted to the
    thrill of grubbing around in the code and directories and finally
    figuring out how to make things work the way I want them to.

    Back when I was interested in those things I ported an NCAR
    Community Climate Model to Linux for my own use and still
    collect various weather and financial data items daily should I
    ever be interested in analysing them. On my root window I
    display more or less real time GOES satellite images giving
    me the illusion of having a window room in geosynchronous
    orbit.

    Lately I have been spending more time on games. This made
    me realize Slackware 12.2 may be a little outdated for my
    needs. In the past few weeks I've upgraded to 13.0, 13.1 and
    now 13.37. As usual after upgrades there are quite a few things
    that work differently or not at all. One, arising from my (satellite)
    image processing needs, has me so stumped I'm having to
    actually post a question.

    Possibly I may be able to help someone else here with their
    problem. We can always hope.

    Neil
