Spot the Difference!

Geertjan Wielenga

There's one difference between these two screenshots... what is it? Whoever gets the right answer first will get a postcard from Prague, signed by me as well as anyone else walking round the office at the time of my sending it! If you know the answer, or think you know, just leave your answer as a comment at the end of this blog entry.

(People who are in Prague, who know the answer, are not allowed to enter -- especially you, Roumen!) Good luck to all the others...

    The first one has X at the left top corner of Projects tab.
    Send your postcard to my email :-)

    Well done Sitchai! Do you -- or anyone else -- have any idea what I did to hide the X (which is used to close the window but which you can exclude if you don't want to give users that option)?

    Do I get a postcard as well? :-D
  • Geertjan Friday, July 29, 2005
    Yes, both you and Sitchai will get a postcard, if you send me your address! (Actually, the postcards are very nice -- they're about 30cm in length and each shows a different panorama view of Prague -- the old town square, or the castle, or the Charles Bridge, or other typical Prague landmarks. And each postcard is signed by a LOT of people here at the Prague office -- and still more will be added in the coming days.) So, Sitchai and Michael, send your complete postal address to my e-mail, geertjan.wielenga@sun.com, and you will get one of these very special postcards!

    I think that there is a couple more diffirences. The scroll arrows are slightly out, the bottom scroll bar ends at a slightly diffitent place, there is some slight colour diffirences on the right hand side and the second image is one pixel offset to the left!
    Note: How amazing is the Gimp? http://choffee.co.uk/images/diff-diff.jpg

    Nice try. You don't get a postcard though. :-) By the way, what kind of cutting edge high technology devices did you use to come up with those barely-existent differences?

    Thanks for your addresses, Sittichai from Bangkok and Michael from Sao Paulo! Your postcards will be on the way to you by the end of the week!

    Actually it is now
    at least for editor tabs; but it doesn't work all that well for me. YMMV.
  • Geertjan Friday, August 5, 2005
    Geez, you're right. I just tested it again. It works fine for me (two seconds ago, in 4.1). By the way, Sittichai and Michael, I sent your postcards today... so, depending on the Czech postal service (and the Thai and Brazilian postal services too) you should get them in the not too distant future...
