known for co-creating that little app known as The Gimp
, wrote in to let us know what he's doing these days. He, along with four other XCF members have created OnlinePhotoLab.com
Using the Gimp as a backend, it provides 50 megs of storage, and the ability to perform many normal gimp functions on images. Also provides an easy facility for sharing your images. Most interesting is the hardware. Spencer says "We have ten Linux boxes,
each a dual processor running four GIMP engines, for a total of
40 engines. We estimate we can process about a million image
requests per day. The cost of hardware was less than $25k."
Here's hoping it can withstand the Slashdot Effect: it worked great
