FLAM3 v2.7.2 has been released. Download it here
use isaac random number generator to avoid differences
between mac/pc/linux. use multiple threads to take advantage
of multiple CPUs or cores. new variations: disc2, Arch,
Tangent, Square, Rays, Blade, Secant, Twintrian, Cross.
fixed bug reading hex color format - must remove \n prior to
start of colors if present. use EPS in spiral, hyperbolic
and spherical to eliminate black spots. fix numbering of
disc2, change parameter to estimate_bounding_box. made blur
kernel type templatable. removed extraneous 'enabled="1"' in
writing out final xform information (no longer needed).
thanks to erik for the heavy lifting as usual.
thanks to Gygrazok for the new variations.

Importing addresses into a Sidekick
A couple of weeks ago I got a sidekick after my old flip phone finally broke in half.
Unfortunately the SIM card was unreadable and I lost my address book!
Fortunately the sidekick has a web interface into which one can import an address book
from a PC, and I have most of the important records in my Thunderbird address book.
Unfortunately, the sidekick only supports syncing with Outlook on Windows. It doesn't
support LDAP, which Thunderbird can export to, or vCARD. But the web interface does allow importing simple CSV format. So I wrote a python
program to translate LDIF (the name of the file format used by LDAP) to the right CSV. It
should run on Mac OS X, but I did it on Linux. It uses the python-ldap
which was preinstalled.
it is under GPL. Run it on the command line like "ldif2csv < infile.ldif > outfile.csv" and then upload outfile.csv to your Desktop. This was really quicky-minimal if you find it lacking let me know.
