i have returned

Life's been a bit hectic. For starters, my parents are leaving the country for a week if not longer. I will have to fend for myself in that time, but I'm also going to be able to indulge in more independence. For me this is an opportunity to see what my life would be like I were living alone (a goal i wish to accomplish sometime in the near future). I admit I'm worried for my parents and I feel like I'll miss them in that time, but I'll deal with it. Another thing that has become a problem is my laptop. I'm currently typing from a keyboard connected to it via USB (along with an optic mouse because using the touchpad AND the keyboard was driving me insane), this is due to water damage. i'm going to attempt some repairs on my own sometime in the future. I would use the warranty I purchased, but the retailer said it expired some time ago. I would try to renew it, but they said it was too late so my current options are to buy a new laptop (with near non-existent money i have) or self fix. My Henchman 21 costume is near complete, I'm buying some foam and tape tomorrow to make the wings, belt buckle and visor. I keep saying I'll post pics soon and I will as soon as the vest,shorts and boots are done.

Homeless Man Under Pressure

Kinda busy today, I figured out the coding problem mentioned in one of my earlier posts. Found this creative. I'd give him a $5

Korean Baby Singing Hey Jude

Let's face it, this kid could end all sort of wars

MATLAB coders wanted

Trying to create the code for Nearest Neighbor image interpolation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For those willing to help here's a lowdown on what the program is supposed to do, plus a background on Nearest Neighbor. given a 2 x 2 pixel picture that looks like this:

a  b
c  d

when enlarged by a magnification of 2 is supposed to look like this

a a b b
a a b b
c c d d
c c d d

The code is supposed to go on different scales, as far as 16 if not larger. I can go as far as to write up the while loops to check the dimensions of the image but the enlarging process and adding the info to the enlarged picture has me stumped. Any help would be great
