The 'net' is not a 'highway', nor is it a glistening ocean to be 'surfed'. It is a garbage dump where you spend hours picking thru mounds of foul, useless, decomposing garbage until you find one little smidgen of worthful information. A small amount of marginally valueable goods are kept in bins at the gate, if you have to travel past those, then expect to compete with the seagulls, rats and trash bags full of used diapers just waiting to rip open and cover you with human byproduct."

My new camera, a Canon PowerShot A520 has a setting for panorama pictures. It help you tile a set of 640x480 pics and provides some software to warp the images and create a single picture.
Now an image that is 2430x400 pixels doesn't display well on a screen, so I did a little googling for panoramic image viewers and found a nice free package by a company called ImmerVision that simplifies creating a Java based panorama.
