my glamourous graphics job

Hi. I'm recreating the fussy little bits of printing on punchcards. Not that I actually have the punchcards to go by. Instead I've got jpegs that range from barely legible to entirely illegible. Oh, and they're in German. How's YOUR morning going?

I'm working on the golfing show. There's a guy droning on and on about Rule 23 - loose impediments. You can move a leaf, rock, pine cone, stick, etc. and not incur a penalty stroke, so long as you don't move the golf ball. If you bump the golf ball and move it, it's a one-stroke penalty. If you don't return the ball to the original position, it's a two stroke penalty.

There. I just explained it in 50 words. Why can't he do that?? :)

Work sucks. Let's go biking. :D

I'm gonna keep at it. However annoying it is, I know we charge the customer more than a dollar a minute for crap like this. When she has something beyond the jpegs from HER customer, she offers to mail it to us. Just e-mailed her, though:

I'm assuming these jpegs are all you have for these cards. I'm in the process of recreating them, and some of the smaller text is illegible. We'll have to get that information. I'll keep working on it, putting question marks in the places I can't read at all, otherwise guessing. I should have an in-progress proof for you later today. These ones are going to take some time.

Need help with translation? I can do German.

Thanks, but I don't need to translate it, just to accurately copy it.
