Potentially nerdy useful thing

I don't know if this will be of interest, but if you ever need to measure the area of things in images (for example, the relative sizes of the 4 nations in the UK), you can use the free imaging program The GIMP to do this.

My avatar was a scientific result that was later found to be 'mistaken' - I rarely claim to be 100% correct
ETA 5/8/20: I've been advised that the result was correct, it was the initial interpretation that needed to be withdrawn
Meta? I'd say so!

Handy for putting everything in standard "Size of Wales" units. :D

But actually handy (if I can overcome my shudders at The Gimp UI). Thanks.
