An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Rodney Wold, 64, Louisville, KY Jailed After Threatening Neighbor With Rifle Over Wabbits Reported by The Weekly Vice Rodney Wold, a 64-year-old Kentucky man, was jailed after he allegedly threatened a neighbor with an AK-47 because the neighbor had been shooting at wabbits, err rabbits. According to Louisville Police, Wold became angry when he caught his neighbor sitting on his back porch shooting at rabbits. In retaliation, Wold retrieved a loaded AK-47 rife from his home, pointed it at his neighbor and yelled "if you want to hunt something, you can hunt me." When officers arrived on the scene, the neighbor admitted to shooting at rabbits with an air rifle because they were damaging his garden. The neighbor's wife, who witnessed the incident, told officers that they had previously had problems with Wold. After obtaining permission to search Wold's residence, officers located the AK-47 between the mattress and box spring of his bed. Officers found the rifle loaded with a magazine that held 19 rounds, according to the arrest affidavit. Wold was booked into jail and charged with wanton endangerment. His bond has been set at $5,000. Tech Support Pits From: Holly Re: Picture clarity Dear Webby Why are some pictures on the net and in email so fuzzy and others are sharp and clear? is that because of the type of camera used? Holly Dear Holly Usually that has nothing to do with the camera, but with how the camera was used, and especially how the pictures were saved. Some people are on slow servers and have to reduce the size of their files, so that they finish loading before the visitor's attention span runs out. That is done by chosing a high compression ratio. With the JPG files, that are used on the web, the compression is "lossy". When pixels are thrown away, color depth and clarity naturally suffers. This is made even worse if a picture is edited and saved multiple times. Each time the compression loses more pixels and the picture gets fuzzier and more washed out looking. Lost pixels can never be returned. For editing I recommend using PSP, PSD, or PNG format, and only convert the picture to JPG as a last step before uploading. You can even leave them in PNG format. Most modern browsers can handle PNG pictures. Have FUN! DearWebby
