Well, you can do simple page layout in Photoshop. I would imagine you  can do it in the Gimp. A picture of the Peguin on one side and textbox  on the other side. Highlight and change text. I bet you could do it in  OpenOffice, also...As to what I said earlier, It just seems like this  group is a good place to demysify somethings , and talk about real  geeky things at the sametime. Besides, I kinda like the anarchist  feel...Well, I think they actually want me to do some work today...

    I believe I can bring a machine to SF State (or
some other venue, but not the Javacat, of course),
so's to allow breaking and rebuilding it thoroughly
in the name of science.
    As to the Gimp, I didn't know that had a page-
layout capability (text editing, wrapping, etc).
