pdflatex with \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} creates soft pdfs

Hi,

Was just wondering if you can help me to fix this problem.

If I use \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}, the resulting pdf is very soft:
http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~al/withT1.pdf

while if I remove it they seem to be OK:
http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~al/noT1.pdf

I have not seen this problem until I installed a new Acrobat Reader 9 but 
other people I collaborated with complained before about this issue (apparently 
not evident with Acrobat 5,6 or 7). 

The source codes are given here:
http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~al/withT1.tex
http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~al/noT1.tex

Thanks a lot :)

We should know what TeX distribution you are using. It seems that
you are lacking a Type1 version of the EC fonts, which is provided
by the CMSuper font package.

Acrobat Reader 8 displays it pretty nicely, perhaps Adobe 
has regressed in its handling to type3 PS fonts. 

Your TeX system apparently fails to contain the EC fonts
(the default fonts for T1 encoding) in PS type1 (.pfb) 
format. You can either use some other font family (Latin Modern
mimics CM and comes as .pfb files) or install the cm-super
package, which has all the EC fonts in .pfb form.

Creating a new record in a related file
I am running FMP7 and would like to create a script that takes information (company name, address, phone number...) from one file (clients.fp7), creates a new record in another file (invoice.fp7) and inserts the appropriate data in the appropriate file.

problems with pdfLaTeX
Hi, after translating a LaTeX document with pdfLaTeX (MikTeX 2.5 under Win XP Professional) I can not open the resulting pdf with either Adobe Professional 7.0, Adobe Reader 8.0 or Ghostscript. If instead of pdfLaTeX I use conventional LaTeX I get a dvi-file that is fine, except of course for the missing (pdf-)graphics. The error message of the Adobe products is singularly unhelpful: "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired." Ghostscript was a little bit more elaborate, but I do not know how to solve the problem: GSview 4.8 2006-...

Re: Create a dataset using no IO
Why do you think that Oracle Data Pump uses no I/O? How would data get from one place to another if no I/O is involved? No, you can't move data without doing I/O in some form. If you are moving a SAS data file from one location to another on the same platform, you might be able to use native file commands to reduce the number of I/O operations; copying a file directly is probably more efficient than doing it in SAS. The method you propose below is perhaps the least efficient possible method. If you use a SAS proc intended for data movement, such as PROC COPY or PROC APPEND, SAS can s...

How to create a server in J2EE?
J2EE Newbie... I'm looking to create a J2EE application that opens a port on the deployed server and listens for, and handles, traffic from clients. The app works fine in J2SE, but I can't find a single reference in any of my newly acquired books on J2EE, the Sun J2EE tutorial (I have the book), or the Internet, of any way to simply open up a port and listen. A good example of what I'm looking to do would be a J2EE syslog server, or a telnet server, etc. I thought I was on to something with JavaBean connectors, or somehow opening the port up as a form of EIS, but nothing concrete...

image color inconsistency by pdfLaTeX and dvipdf
Hello, I've noticed that results of pdfLaTeX and LaTeX plus dvipdf sometimes differ. One case is the color of an image. Sample TeX file: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{color} \begin{document} \textcolor{red}{Red Image? \includegraphics{image} (end).} \end{document} Files "image.eps" and "image.pdf" are black-white images. The results are the following: pdfLaTeX: the image is red-white LaTeX+dvipdf: the image is black-white I use quite old teTeX 2.0, and can't install a newer version to check if the inconsistency is fixed.

What app to create drum&bass music
HI NG! I'm not shure whether this is the appropriate group for my question so please apologise if I'm wrong. I'm searching a free program (preferrably on linux) which I could use to make electronic music with, typically drum&bass. Ideally, I'd like to compose some bass rythm on 4 measures or so and make it loop, and then add some sound samples on top of it. I don't have the samples but the sound bank of my sound card should be ok. Any hints?

Defining mesh density with softness
First let me tell you what I am trying to do: I want a model (tri-mesh) to be defined with a density function. All points inside the model will have density of 1. As distance away from the surface increases, density will scale to zero when it gets $softness away from the model. I want this function to be continuous and smooth over all of the points that are within softness distance from the interpolated model surface normal. I came up with this brute-force plan: find the vertex that has the most similar vertex normal direction as a vector from the input point to that vertex from the fou...

The pattern of the array is as follows: 0, 0.25, 0.75, 1.45, 2.45, ...... the distance between one point to its sucessive one is i*c, where c is constant and i is an index. Thanks!
