PNG vs JPEG

JPEG isn’t always right. If you are one of those people who just assumes JPEGs rule the world and make all images JPEG, please stop.  There is a time and a place where you have to put the JPEG encoder down. It’s not a silver bullet. (more…)

There is always a police presence but today before entering the subway entrance I hear this piston sounding noise and look over to the square.
