Got back to work. I have been playing around with some image processing code for the Trade Marks people. This code needs to take true type fonts and render specified characters onto a TIFF image. It now works, apart from lacking the support for variable height characters. This support is not needed anyway, as we are using a barcode font where all the characters have the same height any way. I still want to get the code working better sometime though for my own personal understanding… It will have to wait for my copious free time.

Trade Marks is also after something to allow them to commit images into our systems from the Internet instead of from scanners, so I have been working on that as well…

Much of my after hours development time has been dominated by this imaging work for Trade Marks, so Panda hasn’t gone much farther. I will keep you informed.
