LazyWeb. [Dec. 20th, 2006|11:17 am]

LazyWeb rarely works for me, but whatever. I can keep on hoping.

1. You know those clothish black covers for the ear pieces on headphones? I would like to buy new ones. Does anyone know a place that sells them seperate? I've never seen them in stores.
2. I like SVG's but I haven't liked any of the SVG editors I've used. Does anyone make a SVG editor which is as featureful and easy to use as, say, Flash? (Featureful with respect to editing vector graphics, not timeline, etc.) Bonus points if it can export to PNG or GIF in a sane manner (ie, not like Illustrator). I've already tried recent versions of Illustrator and Inkscape, so both of those answers would be wrong.

1. You can usually get cheapo earbuds (with covers included) at dollar stores.

Have you tried Xara Extreme? It looks pretty nice from the screenshots on their webpage. Its only $80 for the Windows version, and there is an open source version that currently runs on Linux.

Never used Flash... but how about building it in illustrator, export to png from inkscape? (I think inkscape does a fairly decent job at export, even if it isn't a fabulous editor)

I was just watching the demo movies for Xara Extreme, and it looks like it could be what I'm looking for.

Coping from Illustrator to Photoshop is the easiest way to go about exporting bitmap graphic types from Illustrator, I've found. I wouldn't mind going through those extra steps if the editing in Illustrator wasn't so annoying.
