first, just want to reinforce Christian on today's event at St.
Anthony's -- it was a lot of fun and i think for at least some people
the FOSS element played a significant role.
now for my stupid question: i am trying to extract some images from
stupid pdf from, of all places, marthat stewart living. i don't know
that much about pdf but the images look to be svgish -- all lines and
fills, very simple really. anyway, tried pdfimages from (in ubuntu) the
xpf-utils package, and it fails silently to extract any images from this
particular pdf (works fine on other files though). so i guess i'm
looking at some kind of manual extraction or something...
<JS note="snipped file, too big for list consumption">
file in question is hopefully attached to this message -- i'd put it on
the web somewhere but my server's back in toronto and appears to be
suffering from disk failure...
</JS note="if SF-LUGgers can point matt to a source, do so to his email>
thanks for any help you can give,
