... you will find a lot of persons.

No, i am not schizophrenic (i believe), but last weekend i played around a little with the new Silverlight 2 Deepzoom Control [0].

... and that's the result: my cat, my city, my self ;-) (only visible in IE with latest Silverlight plugin)

use mouse for zooming and moving

What you need are some big very detailed images and the deep zoom composer [5], which generates the tiles. Then reference the generated output to the MultiScaleImage Control:

The hardest but also funniest thing was to get a nice detailed picture. I only found the virtual pixel town [1] from a german pixel project. Unfortunately most of the good panorama gigapixel images cost a lot, so i decided to generate my own ones;) The first is a sweet "fear-me" cat [2]. I converted it to ascii text with the help of the mosascii m2 tool [3]. And the big mosaic of myself i created with andrea mosaic [4].

... wird er es sicherlich schon wissen (sonst wär er kein Fan), aber die deutsche Staffel 3 von Alias ist letzte Woche erschienen. Sie ist wiedermal gewohnt spannend und süchtigmachend wie bereits die ersten beiden. Ich musste alle 6 DVDs (ca. 18 Stunden) am Stück gucken, obwohl soviel Informationen auf einmal garnicht gut für das Brain sind

Ich bin jetzt zufällig auf Lounge-Radio gestoßen, einem weiteren netten Online Radio Sender. Ich glaube er wird mich in Zukunft eine Weile begleiten. Das heisst aber nicht, das ich meinem jahrelangen Begleiter somafm untreu werde ;-) Reinhöhren lohnt sich immer.
