Where did you learn how to write ps like that?  I'd love to learn a little
bit myself.  Are there any good websites or books that you recommend?
Have you ever messed around with xml/svg scripting?  I'd like to get into
that as well.  Too bad it's not widely supported in common browsers.

Yeah, that one works great too.  A nice internal method for pulling off
the radial lines.

Hey, good idea!  (just learned what 'fnord' is or isn't?) And then each
winner's technique could be added to a cool little Fnord repository of
short little tutorials (or even script-fu).  If I can muster up some time,
we could propose something along these lines to the world.  I could
even host it on my webspace or maybe gimp.org would let us host it there.

I don't know.  I work with a guy who uses Photoshop, and when I described
wanting to make some radial lines for an ad, he thought there might be a
way in Photoshop, but I beat him to the punch w/your script.

Hmm... could be a cool plug-in for Gimp.  I wish I knew C.
