 A friend of mind uses the word snap as a euphemism for
 something far less pleasant.

 But this story came up on the only IT news site worth reading daily.

 Or worth reading at all.

 The biggest digital photo ever.  Though they did cheat.  A bit.

 If you think you have problems sorting 30MB images .. just wait until

 Shawn - don't get too excited.  They say it took five 'high-end' computers
 (whatever that means at the moment) three days of computation to
 stitch this thing together.
